Sri MGR Year 96, 6th December, Friday
R.R. Pictures Panam Padaithavan is re-released this week in Mahalakshmi theater as 3 shows. A family story, MGR does the role of an athlete, Nagesh as his brother and goes to Calcutta to attend an athletics meet, happens to see K.R.Vijaya and fell in love but due to circumstance marry Sowcar Janaki but their marriage life is short lived and she dies horribly and MGR marries K.R.Vijaya and have a child and how the family gets united is the remaining part of the story.
The main cast includes M.G.Ramachandran - MGR, Sowcar Janaki, K.R.Vijaya, Nagesh, T.S.Balayya, S.A.Asokan, R.S.Manohar and Geetanjali.
The movie had beautiful and mesmerizing tunes. All the songs were hit, the philosophical songs Kan pona pokile and Yenakoru Magan, two duet songs Pavala kodiele and Antha maapillai, Yen uir pirivathai and manicka thottil two sad songs are worth mentioning.
The songs that are still remembered by MGR Devotees and MGR Fans and the final stanza etched in the history forever.
A classical MGR duet song (dream song) MGR as Mughal Emperor. I imagine if this duet song alone in colour the depth will be more to the story.
