Re Release Ithayakani 3

Sri MGR Year 97, 18th December, Thursday

We have already uploaded two videos of Ithayakani movie which was re released in Mahalakshmi theatre two weeks back. In this post we are uploading another two video clips.


After the marriage in coffee estate the couple arrives to get the blessing from his mother. Followed by astrologers advice of separating the married couple for one month.


Click the above image for the video clip of Inbamae song. As the print and the projection is bad the clip had to be enhanced for brightness, pardon for the picture quality. Watch how MGR fans enjoyed the duet song. In the song when the heroine mentions our God MGR as Vallal (noble) the theatre became thunderous.


The second video clip given below is the political dialogues uttered by our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR and the characters of the movie.

Re Release Ithayakani 2

Sri MGR Year 97, 14th December, Sunday

Sathya Movies Ithayakani was re-released previous week in Mahalakshmi theatre and we have uploaded images and one video relating to the reaction of MGR fans.


In this post we are uploading further scenes from the movie where our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR speaks about the coffee estate and followed by the villains planning to disgrace MGR name and fame.


The above images are not from Mahalakshmi theatre.

The dialogues of Isari Velan, Rathna and S.V.Subbaiah praising MGR is uploaded. The praising words is for Mohan character but the dialogues are direct hint to the real life of MGR.


Pardon for the poor video quality.

When MGR’s benevolence, respects to women and his title is said the people became ecstatic and MGR devotees showed their devotion watch for yourselves.

Re Release Ithayakani

Sri MGR Year 97, 9th December, Tuesday

The 1975 Blockbuster movie and Puratchi Thalaivar MGR starrer Ithayakani was re released in Mahalakshmi theatre this week.


The above image was taken on 7th December, time 5.50 pm. Thought this much people only came to watch.


The most famous pose of MGR, no need to mention the movie title the pose itself is enough.


A part of the crowd inside the theatre taken during the interval of the movie. The theatre had 75% occupancy even the movie was shown in Sun Life channel the previous day.

As usual the print is bad but the movie had 30 minutes long interval to compensate the cut of the movie. Most of the reel had MGR colour print (runs only in one colour that is pink).

Click the below image for the video clip.


The first scene of Ithayakani movie and the response to our beloved Leader MGR.

Above video had to be enhanced for brightness and sharpness. For viewing pleasure the video resolution reduced to 352 x 288 pixel size as the original video looks very much blur. 

Other videos will follow.

Sri MGR Year 97, 4th December, Thursday

DVSK – Daana Veera Suura Karna (Dana Veera Soora Karna) is the first production of Sree Ramakrishna Cine Studios, produced, directed and starred by NTR. And also this movie is one of NTR’s memorable movies which was released on January 1977.

MGR_NTR  04frpeethambaram2_j_493038a

Our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR clapped the first shot of this movie on 7.6.1976, as most of us know how close are these two legends. The bigger image given below is exclusively from NTR forum.

I watched this epic flick, nearly 4 hours (25 reels) because of our beloved God MGR.

As per the story NTR performed in three roles, Duryodhana, Karna and yes you guessed right, Sri Krishna. From the above image I thought it is easy to find out the scene from the movie but to my amazement the costume used by NTR is for Duryodhana and only during the climax NTR costume changes.

So were this scene comes? when we look closely at the clapper you can see the date, Muhurtham, night and P.B. that is playback in short form with this clue we can exclude the full talkie part and concentrate only on playback scenes (song scenes).

NTR’s intro as Duryodhana entering the durbar is song scene but the background set did not match,  after 40 minutes of footage another song comes up this one is duet song in that part the back ground matches accurately to the photo, so on that day our beloved God MGR clapped for the duet song “Chitram” below are some of the images from the song.

In the above images you can clearly see one statue in typical dancing pose and three rectangular openings in the structure of the gate set. Unfortunately NTR does not appear on that part of the set only the heroine appears.

Interestingly the program used Nalai Namathey scenes to show that our God MGR technically used film title for his political messages for the masses.
