By RANDOR GUY
G. RAMANATHAN - 26
Most persons in the film industry, whether they are actors,
screenwriters, music composers or whatever, are often tempted
to try their hand in film production which is a different ball game
with its own ruleswhich are not clearly defined even today.
As somebody commented, film production is a gamble and
no one knows whether a particular film will do well at the box
office or notand bring home the moolah or the bacon. The
celebrated Hollywood movie mogul Harry Cohn, the boss of
Columbia Pictures, was once asked by a critic whether there
was any formula to predict the success at the box office for a
movie. With his characteristic cynical sense of humour and
rugged common sense, he said that only two people could
predict the success of a film. First, a producer who can make
his film a success by buying up all the tickets for all the shows
in the world! Second, the biggest idiot in Christendom can do
it! There is considerable wisdom in ‘King’ Cohn’s dictum!
The Tamil moviemusic charmer G. Ramanathan was also
tempted to try his hand in film production and promoted a
company under the name and style of Sarovodaya Productions.
He made ‘Pudhu Vaazhvu’ (1957)as his first film with M. K. T.
Bhagavathar in the lead.
Expectedly, Ramanathan composed the music along with C.
N. Pandurangam who had been active as a music composer for
some time.The story and dialogues were written by the oldtimer and top screenwriter of Tamil cinema, Elangovan who
had written hits for Bhagavathar, A. K. Velanand others
earlier.
Lyrics were written by Papanasam Sivan, Thanjai Ramaiah
Das, A. Marudhakasi, Nataraja Sundaram and
Saravanabhavananda. Also songs of Jothi Ramalinga
Swamigal and Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar were added.
Expectedly Bhagavathar sang most of the songs as solo and
as duets with P. Leela. In one song, somewhat interestingly,
Jikki sang along with Bhagavathar. (Radha)Jayalakshmi
also sang a solo song.
The film was photographed by the well-known lensman of
the day R. Sampath while Hiralal, Sohanlal and Madhavan
composed the dances.
Bhagavathar’s brother M. K. Shanmugam was in charge of
the production and the film was shot at Newtone Studios.
Surprisingly, Bhagavathar directed the movie with hardly
any experience in that technique.
The film had many melodious songs, mostly rendered by
Thyagaraja Bhagavathar. There were song and dance
sequences for which he sang for Kumari Thulasi and Madhuri
Deviand, for another song, Lalitha danced. The famous
Bharathiyar song ‘Sutrum vizhi sudar thaan Kannamma’ was
rendered as a raagamaalika by Bhagavathar in his
characteristic melodious style and verve. The song was a hit
and sold well as gramophone disc or ‘plate’ as it was known in
those days.
Somewhat interestingly, Bhagavathar sang a short song in
which he combined lines from popular melodies of earlier years
in Hindi which included ‘Aawara hoon’ (from Raj Kapoor’s
classic ‘Aawara‘), ’Dadada dadada’ (from the hit movie ‘Ek Thi
Ladki’with the top star of his dayMotilal and Meenakshi. This
song was a super hit and gave rise to the expression ‘Dappa
Sangeetham’). Bhagavathar’s singing such a song surprised
his ardent fans and even critics.
The story was somewhat predictable about Vaikuntam
(MKT) living in a village singing and in love with Nagammal
(Lalitha). Her brother did not like the budding romance and one
day he ties him up to a tree. Going along that way, a rich woman
Subha (Madhuri Devi) saves him. Drawn to him, she takes him
to the city where she promotes him as a singer under a new
name ‘Geethamani’, gathering fame and fortune. He forgets
his past blinded by the good fortune and fame and insults his
aged poor parents and calls them beggars.
Nagammal too is shocked and tries to commit suicide by
jumping into a river. However soon Geethamani realises his
mistakes. How he is reconciled with his parents and Nagamani
formed the rest of the story and film.
Krishnan and Mathuram expectedly sing a comical duet.
In spite of the melodious songs excellently rendered by
Bhagavathar, the film flopped at the box office, landing
Ramanathan in huge monetary loss.
Songs from this movie are worth listening to even after more
than a half-century. Unfortunately, none of the films
Bhagavathar made after his release from prison as an echo of
the sensational Lakshmikantham Murder Case fared well at
the box-office.

NO HOLDS
BARRED
By M. A. SADANAND
KEJRIWAL IN BENGALURU
For naturopathy, Bengaluru is the new,
fancy indigenous capital as diagnosed by
the muffler-man of Delhi State which was
swept by the fledgling AAP in its second
coming.
The triumvirate of Aravind, Yogendra
and Prashanth seemed attuned to a new
thrust gauged by their storming of the polls
leaving a miserly three seats to others.
But even after rising from the ashes, the
AAP doesn’t seem to have risen above internal squabbles that threaten to weaken their
Valentine Day pledge to the people of Delhi
after having broken off with them and dissolving the loose-mixed government on the
previous Valentine Day in 2014 after a
brief, intense 49 day love affair! But
Kejriwal, the chief, this time too fell a
victim to the inclement Delhi winter that
pierced his muffler, leaving him with a
persistent cough that rendered him speechless.
It seems a peculiar curse that Kejriwal is
not able to keep infections at bay. The
decision to go down to the benevolent South
to oust the thunder-causing element from
his system should be the precursor to many
great revolutionary attempts that he would
launch, once his patented cap does not get
blown off by the cough barrage. And while
getting rid of the niggling irritants in his
throat, he seems to have neatly avoided
looking his erstwhile friends and co-founders
of his party, Yogendra and Prashanth, in
the eye while the executive committee relieved them of their posts. The broom seems
to have a lot to sweep under the carpet!
When the kind Bengaluru rids Kejri of
his cough and he returns to the capital and
his office as the chief, his contingent of
enthusiastic followers, meanwhile having
used the brooms to Swaach Delhi and its
environs of corruption, we the people of
India may find the Kejri-way to health,
wealth and happiness, the best natural
cure for our sick society’s ills, geographical
borders notwithstanding.
And who knows: perhaps we may also hit
pay dirt by finding the mysteriously missing Rahul Gandhi “introspecting” upon the
size zero result of his party in the Delhi
polls at the same Naturopathy centre in
Bengaluru! Maybe Kejri and Rahul will
meet over a herbal Chai Pe Charcha and
Rahul Baba may come away from the meet
wiser on how to win at least one seat in an
election and also how to cleverly use a
cough as a punctuation while making a
speech!!

LETTERS TO THE
EDITOR
Auto driver harasses old lady
Sir, The other day, my friend was privy to an
incident when an old lady was trying to catch an
auto near Sharma Park (Habibullah Road) to
visit a temple a kilometer away. When she
stopped an empty auto, the driver demanded
Rs. 70. When she told him to charge as per
meter, he refused. Seeing the plight of the lady
my friend tried to help her. When he warned the
driver that he will lodge a complaint with the
police, the driver was least bothered and instead said that he too had connections in the
police. The driver also had the audacity in not
allowing the old lady to hire other autos by
shooing away the vehicles and threatening
those drivers. Finally after close to 15 minutes,
the driver drove away and the old lady managed
to find an auto that agreed to charge as per the
meter. – V.N.S. Jayaraman, Motilal Street,

Demand to turn Usman Road service
lane into an auto stand unwarranted
Sir, This refers to the road roko resorted to
by auto-rickshaw drivers outside R1
Mambalam Police Station, T. Nagar, last week
demanding that they be permitted to park
their vehicles along Usman Road service lanes
and close it to vehicular traffic. Even at present,
a number of auto drivers are misusing the
eastern side service lane of Usman Road for
parking their vehicles. By resorting to road
roko, the drivers are only trying to get an official
sanction. The service lanes are already narrow and if autos are allowed to park on them it
will cause heavy traffic jams and also cause
hardship to pedestrians. Further, if the service
lanes are closed to vehicular traffic to enable
parking of autos and private vehicles (as demanded by the auto drivers), the residents of
the side streets will be put to untold hardship,
for they will have to take detours to reach their
homes. As it is, the western end of the service
lane is encroached upon by roadside vendors
preventing vehicular movement. The encroachment on this lane is such that even
walking has become impossible. The residents
of side streets of the western end service lane
are facing acute problems because of the
encroachment. The demand by the auto drivers is unfair and should not be conceded to.— K.
Sreenivasan, 16, Ramaswamy Street, T.
Nagar
Say no to extortion by LPG
delivery men
Sir, It is a standard norm to tip the LPG
delivery person more out of goodwill. The amount
of tip is up to the consumer and the delivery
person has no right of demand. The other day
the delivery person demanded Rs. 40 as tip for
delivering the refill to my neighbour and refused
to accept anything less. He also threatened
that if he was not paid the demanded amount,
he will cause difficultly in future refills.
My neighbour rightly refused to pay any tip
