The MGR look like dance images and Samuthaya nala koodam images were forwarded by Tirupur Ravichandran.


I was very much impressed by the performance of Kovai Siva for the song “Nan Aanai Ittal” and Kovai Elangovan with original hair style, for “Nalai Namathey” song. The hand movement and the leg movement were very perfect, the way in which MGR lifts the heroine and the way in which MGR enters the frame are very very perfect. I think they should have watched the songs 1000 times. The costumes were very near to MGR costumes.
