Nadodi Mannan 55

Sri MGR Year 95, 22nd August, Wednesday

Emgeeyar Pictures first production Nadodi Mannan has reached another mile stone. Today is the commencement of 55th year of Nadodi Mannan. A special video has been compiled for the anniversary.


In the below video some of the double actions scenes were included to glorify MGR, his talent in production, direction and camera technique.


The video shows the conversation scene of Wanderer and King in the castle, the dialogues and the visual a treat to watch. King MGR’s shadow on Wanderer MGR, King comes behind Wanderer and finally shaking hands all by one person though appears as two individuals. The magic done in those days. Hats off to their imagination and hard work..



Here are some of the trivia from Nadodi Mannan.


Nadodi Mannan Trivia


The movie had 2 Music Directors. The first Music Director was N.S.Balakrishnan, he tuned for three songs the first song that is the title song of the movie "Senthamizhe vanakkam", MGR & Bhanumathy song "Sammadhama" and third one MGR, Bhanumathy and Chandra combination "Padupatta Thannaley". Due to unavoidable circumstances N.S.Balakrishnan resigned from the project. S.M.Subbiah Naidu took the mantle and composed the remaining songs and back ground music.


Cameraman Ramu was well versed in shooting in Black and White. When MGR planned to take the remaining portion in colour, Ramu requested to use some one as the cameraman. After knowing his hesitation MGR asked to go ahead, but Ramu told that he don't know the technical side, and his best friend who promised to help him did not turn over. Those days the colour films are processed in Bombay (Mumbai) only. MGR asked him to for a test shoot, and further said that he need not have to worry about the budget.if the test shoot turns successful, he asked to go ahead shooting with colour film. And MGR was not worried if the test with colour film fails so they have to start shooting again with black and white. Actress from MGR Nadaga Mandram acted for the test. After processing the film the lab gave that no adjustment is needed it is professional looking. Then Cameraman Ramu went on with outdoor shooting in Munnar . That is what we see now in the movie.


The role of Princess Rathna was acted earlier by one artist, which MGR  not satisfied with her performance. And also Saroja Devi was casted in the role of Queens Maid , who spies as per MGR's wish. Further more Saroja Devi acted in the song "Padupatta Thannaley". After casting her in the role of Rathna, actress Chandra was included in the cast and she was given the role of Saroja Devi that is the maid and they re-shot the song. MGR had spent more on re shooting due to technical reasons.


Earlier we have uploaded the 50th year i.e. Golden Jubilee of Nadodi Mannan way back in 21st August 2008 with many videos and songs. To read more about that post click the link below.
