Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR Welfare Association along with Aanaithulaga MGR Pothunala Sangam, Makkal Thilagam MGR Mandram and Ayirathil Oruvan Iraivan MGR Bakthargal celebrated 190th day of Ayirathil Oruvan and also the Golden jubilee of MGR movies released in 1964 in Chennai Press club on 16.11.2014.
We have already uploaded some images of the function continuing to that post we are now uploading the speech given by Poovai Sengkuttuvan about our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR.
He remembered how meticulously MGR looks into the dialogues and lyrics. Poovai Sengkuttuvan had written only one song for our MGR and that song is “Naan unga veetu pillai” from Puthiya Bhoomi. He also told that MGR had great memory power. The title “Sumai Thangi” was given by him to one of MGR’s drama. Earlier he had sent one drama script for which MGR acknowledged with his own handwriting and when Poovai Sengkuttuvan wrote that he want to meet MGR, he replied that he will come to his place and meet him which he did when he came for staging a drama in his native place.
