Sri MGR Year 99, 12th November, Saturday
One of my friend having some newspaper and magazine collections from 1960s & 1970s has asked me to go through his record. After spending some time I took some of our Purtachi Thalaivar MGR related articles for scanning, below are few scans.
I selected some articles that have appeared in 1976 period, that is 4 decades back history.
1. Anna Nee En Deivam
First article is about the song recording of “Anna Nee En Deivam” movie, the song was written by Vali and music composed by M.S.Viswanathan, the song is “Parakum Paingkili” a solo song for MGR. This song was not filmed as MGR had become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu in 1977.
And another article is the photo of MGR leaning over the door frame.
2. Pallandu Vazhga
A photo from the movie “Pallandu Vazhga” to my knowledge I have not seen this MGR pose. I thought of sharing this in our MGR blog.
3. Puratchi Pithan
We all know that “Puratchi Pithan” was an unfinished movie, a photo was published in the Tamil daily showing MGR & Latha, and MGR holding an egg.
4. Uzhaikum Karangal
The movie review of “Uzhaikum Karangal” by Nagai Dharman. He has highlighted important aspects of the movie. Nagai Dharman has mentioned about the Deer horn fight and Rudra Thandavam performance of MGR.
The articles I had uploaded above are small and of scanning the quality is little bit diminished.
