Veteran actress Manorama passed away yesterday at the age of 78. She has acted with our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR in many movies such as Vettaikaran, Thanipiravi, Padagotti, Kanchi Thalaivan, Ther Thiruvizha, Vivasahi, Kalangarai Vilakkam, Thazhampoo, Engal Thangam, Chandrodhayam and Neerum Nerupum etc.,

She has the distinction to have acted with five Chief Ministers, with Peraringnar Anna and Karunanidhi in drama, MGR, Jayalalitha and N.T.Ramarao in films.

Her memorable movies with MGR which had occupied screen space with him are less, they are as an quarrelling wife of Nagesh in Chandrodhayam, fisherwoman in Padagotti and as a spy of Narasimha Pallavan in Kanchi Thalaivan.

We srimgr.com team prays for her soul to rest in peace.

If any unfortunate events occur the present leaders turns as mere witnesses or in other words they just sit and watch.

What Is Comedy?

Sri MGR Year 98, 2nd October, Friday

Couple of years back we have been witnessing mimicry shows from Vijay TV and other TV channels, in the name of mimicry they make fun of yesteryear actors, that also includes our beloved Leader Purtachi Thalaivar MGR. The comedy in that comedy programme is that the most talented mimicry artist can only re create the post 1967 voice of MGR. Nobody so far re created the original voice of pre 1967 MGR. If they had so much talent why can’t they reproduce pre 1967 voice of MGR?

MGR devotees and fans protested against such shows, recently MGR devotees condemned it in person by visiting the TV channel and gave a letter to the administration. On acceptance the admins told that hereafter they will be careful in the show. But later the mocking continued.

R.Govindaraj, son of K.P.Ramakrishnan (one of MGR’s bodyguard) has written an article regarding this in Puthiya Paravai, Tamil magazine, issue dated 15.12.2010. He had given an instance of how MGR reacted when his own brother’s son (M.G.Chakrapani’s son) M.G.C.Balu mimicked Chidambaram S.Jayaraman voice for one of MGR’s song from Urimaikural movie. Below is the article.
