King of Kings Return – 2

Sri MGR Year 98, 28th February, Saturday

We have already posted one video featuring our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR returning from the United States on February 5th 1985, due to overwhelming download of that rare video, one of MGR’s close aide Mr.S.A.Alagarsamy had thanked me and sent me one comment.

Many years before Mr.S.A.Alagarsamy invited me to his house, he showed one rare photo of MGR giving the election speech to Doordarshan and also some of his family photos with our beloved MGR. One such was the photo of his family with MGR taken on 5.2.1985. Which he had framed and kept it in his house. Mr.S.A.Alagarsamy had sent me his comments which I want to share with you all.

Below is his comment to the rare video.

My Dear Roopkumar,

I was waiting at Madras airport when our Thalaivar returned from USA since I played a small role from Apollo hospitals Chennai while he went for treatment. That same day evening I took my family to get blessings from our great Leader.

I was in customs then so I was so close to our Thalaivar in airport. That day was very strict even for big leaders to come inside airport but I went early and was seen by our Leader. He saw me and waved His hands to mark me.

How can I forget those moments...

I thank you so much

with my best regards

S.A.Alagarsamy

 

Thank you very much sir for sharing your cherished memories with us. Below is that rare video posted again. Click to download.

Revolutionary Actor

Sri MGR Year 98, 24th February, Tuesday

P.Bhanumathi is one of the leading lady who had acted with our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR in the following movies.

  • Malaikallan – 22.7.1954
  • Alibabavum Narpathu Thirudargalaum – 14.1.1956
  • Madurai Veeran – 13.4.1956
  • Thaikupin Tharam – 21.9.1956
  • Nadodi Mannan – 22.8.1958
  • Raja Desingh – 2.9.1960
  • Kalai Arasi – 19.4.1963
  • Kanchi Thalaivan – 26.10.1963

all are black and white movies her portion in Nadodi Mannan is also black and white only. Below is an article written by her, the article is given as it is with the error of number of movies acted with MGR.

I feel, I am not competent enough to talk about a genius in all spheres. The more thought we give to his achievements we come to the definite conclusion that there are still some elements in him which elude our incomplete perception, that enhances his entire personality.

I began to think about him more deeply only after his appointing me as the Director and Principal of the Government College of Music.

I was not fortunate enough to act in many pictures with Puratchi Nadigar Dr.MGR. I have acted only in 5 films Malaikallan in 1954, Mathuraiveeran, Thaikkupin Tharam and Alibaba and 40 thieves in 1956 and Nadodi Mannan in 1958. But I have the supreme satisfaction that all the films were, epoch makers both in box office and the total period of runs.

He was the reigning monarch in the film world before he become the real monarch of the Tamils. He had every quality for being at the top of every field in which he was involved. It can be said very aptly that he is a genius in assessing individuals and situations. Like an encyclopaedia, he would store all information about everyone who came into his sphere and utilise them appropriately. Even experts in the field of various sections of the film making, use to wonder at his ideas how they could not be bettered.

He fully knew the great potential of the film media and took every pains to see that only good things for the individual and the nation were portrayed in them. The scenic effects will bring out the best in our country. The dazzling dresses will be portly but without exhibitionism and within the norms of our culture. The songs, the contents, their tune will all be simple, direct and more pleasing to the ear and the knack he uses for fulfilling these will be subtle and no wonder they attracted the layman and the learned to force them to see his films again and again.

He had a lesson for every one - the young, old, the poor, the rich, the girl, the women and the mother. I am most fortunate in his selecting me for all his masterpieces. After leaving the film he had selected me to head the Government College of Music. My father had desired me to propagate music and his wishes have been met by my most beloved Dr.MGR. He had definitely weighed my qualifications and capacities and had, had great expectations of me. I will definitely fulfill his aspirations for propagating the sacred heritage of our hoary system.

No one actor, any where in the world, was a master in all the braches of film making. Not only that. No one steadfastly stuck to the portraying of only the good aspects of life and no one successfully bent others in the field to his view and admirably came out unscathed.

It is not precepts only. He proved himself the unquestioned master by directing and producing masterpieces. How aptly and well the title “Revolutionary Actor”, sits on his broad shoulders!

Sri MGR Year 98, 17th February, Tuesday

From the video clip:

On that misty morning the air plane without any difficulty landed on the tarmac. MGR exited the plane and the mist has come down a little giving a chance to glance at our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR who like before was saluting the crowd.

His Ambassador car took him to the specially arranged stage. There MGR was welcomed by senior members of the party. Watch the below video clip. The last two seconds of the video clip is the core of this post. What do you get from the last two seconds? Your thoughts can be mailed to replytomgr@live.in

The video clip was posted by Kumar Rajendran in facebook I edited the video and added images and sound clips. I have to thank MGR Devotee Yukesh Babu for this post.

One of the five body guards of our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR and who mostly acted as villains henchmen in many MGR movies “Stunt” Sankar passed away early morning today. We srimgr.com team expresses our sincere condolences to Sankar and his family and also prays for his soul to rest in peace.

 

K.P.Ramakrishnan’s son Govindaraj had informed me about the sad demise of Stunt Sankar. Below is the message by Govindaraj.

புரட்சித்தலைவர் எம்ஜிஆர் அவர்களின் தனிபாதுகாவலர்களில் ஒருவரான ஸ்டன்ட்மாஸ்டர் என்.சங்கர் அவர்கள் இன்று {9-2-2015} சென்னையில் காலமானார்.புரட்சித் தலைவரின் ஏராளமான திரைப் படங்களில் சண்டைகாட்சிகளில் நடித்துள்ளதோடு மட்டுமன்றி அவரது மெய்க்காப்பளர்களில் ஒருவராகவும் திறம்பட பணியாற்றியுள்ளவர் திரு.என்.சங்கர் அவர்கள்.புரட்சித் தலைவரின் புனித ஆத்மாவுடன் இரண்டற கலந்து விட்ட அன்னாரது மறைவிற்கு உலகெங்கிலும் வாழும் கோடிக்கணக்கான புரட்சித் தலைவரின் பக்தர்கள் சார்பாக மிக ஆழ்ந்த கவலையை தெரிவித்துக் கொள்கிறோம்.
