MGR magic casts spell on audience


At a time the film sector is celebrating the centenary yr of iconic actor-turned-politician MG Ramachandran who is affectionately identified as MGR, Sai Nagaraj, an ardent supporter of the late legend, has supplied a electronic makeover to 1 of his yesteryear cult flicks Adimai Penn and launched it in Tamil Nadu.

The film launched way back again in 1969 was created under MGR&rsquos residence banner Emgeeyar Shots and had him in a double role of father and son other than younger heroine Jayalalithaa also in dual roles of twin sisters. K.V. Mahedevan&rsquos songs was the major stay in the film, which also marked debut singing of Jaya with the &lsquoAmma Endral Anbu&rsquo variety.

&ldquoI am a really hard main supporter of MGR and grew up watching his films. I strongly feel that he was the only person who, be it in cinema or serious life,&nbsp lived by his term. When I turned producer, I acquired the rights of films (for electronic launch) created by MGR, particularly Adimai Penn, Ulagam Suttrum Vaaliban and Nadodi Mannan which also ma-rked his debut direction,&rdquo Nagaraj of Rishis Flicks instructed DC.

&ldquoI was hugely drawn by Adimai Penn, which was produced at a big spending plan in a grand way by director K. Shankar and MGR. At a time when there were no graphics, they had erected eye catchy mammoth sets of palaces, bridges, shot in serious place of Jaipur Palace, hundreds of camels made use of for combat sequence at a desert, the climax combat with the serious lion which produced the film stand out. Even the dialogues are suitable to current political scenario,&rdquo he explained.

About 3,000 people labored for the final 3 and a 50 percent a long time at Prasad Lab on digitalisation. &ldquoWe did Digital Intermediate, cinemascope, increased encompass audio outcomes, colour correction, particular outcomes,&rdquo he explained including that it expense him Rs 85 lakh for the electronic model. The film has been launched in 100 screens throughout the state.

Adimai Penn&rsquos digitalised model with its exceptional high-quality lived up to the buzz and anticipation it established all through the pre-launch time. One particular cannot but question the uncanny semblance the script had with the modern blockbuster hit S.S. Rajamouli&rsquos Baahubali -the beginning and summary. And thoughtfully the electronic model of Adimai Penn has the fascinating tagline &lsquoThe Actual Starting – Never ever Concludes&rsquo.&nbsp &nbsp

Nagaraj believes that a film which ran for a continuous 175 times when launched 48 a long time back again and produced a file&nbsp collection of Rs 2.5 crores (which is about equal to Rs 350 crores now) will be lapped up by not only MGR, Jayalalithaa fans but also youth of these days and cinema buffs alike.
