Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram

Sri MGR Year 99, 18th November, Friday
Don’t Sleep brother don’t sleep (தூங்காதே தம்பி தூங்காதே) from the movie “Nadodi Mannan”, Young one listen to the tidings (சின்ன பயலே சின்ன பயலே செய்தி கேளடா) from “Arasilangkumari” and the most memorable line “நானே போடப்போறேன் சட்டம் பொதுவில் நன்மை புரிந்திடும் திட்டம் நாடு நலம் பெறும் திட்டம்” from “Nadodi Mannan”, (I am giving only three lines from MGR songs there are more to discuss) we all know that these brilliant, soul stirring lines are written by Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram for our Puratchi Thalaivar movies, after assuming the office of Chief Minister, MGR told the press that he did not know what the three legs in his chair belong to, but he is aware that the fourth leg belongs to the immortal lines rendered by Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram.


Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram died at very young age, MGR helped his family by giving royalty to his songs which appeared in his movie “Nadodi Mannan” and requested other movie producers to giving helping hand to Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram family. More information is found in the above article written by R.Govindaraj who compiled his father K.P.Ramakrishnan (MGR’s bodyguard) account in Deepawali issue of Cinema Pathrikaiyalar Sangam magazine.
