M.G.Chakrapani In “Ithaya Geetham”-1950




Name of the film :  Ithaya Geetham

Year:                      1950

Company:               Cittatal,Jeevadhara(Hindi)

Length:                   15020 Feet

Date Of Release:      29.07.1950

Production:              Joseph Thaliath

Direction:                 Joseph Thaliath

ScreenPlay:             Joseph Thaliath

Music:                       S.V.Venkatraman

Story:                       Joseph Thaliath

Cast:                        T.R. Mahalingam, T.R. Rajakumari, T.P. Rajalakshmi, C.V.V.  Panthulu, P.S. Veerappa, M.G. Chakrapani, C.S.D. Singh, V.S. Susheela, Lalitha-Padmini (dance)

Joseph Thaliath Jr. was the son of a judge of the Travancore High Court when it was a princely state. Branching off from the conservative family, he landed in Madras with dreams of making films. Fighting against odds, he worked as assistant director under the sadly forgotten, South Indian film pioneer S. Soundararajan of Tamil Nadu Talkies. Soon after, he promoted his own production company named Citadel Film Corporation. With the help of noted art director, studio-owner and producer- director F. Nagoor Joseph, he launched his first productionGnanasoundari (1948). A slice of Christian mythology, it turned out to be a box office bonanza, and he at once launched his second filmIthaya Geetham. A period love story and costume drama written by Joseph himself, the script and dialogue were by Naanjil T.N. Rajappa, a fairly well-known writer of the day.

Ithaya Geetham was all about a king, who on his deathbed leaves his queen (Rajalakshmi) and daughter (Rajakumari) in the custody of his friend (Singh) who has two sons, the elder (Veerappa) and the younger (Mahalingam).While the elder son goes to fight a battle, his younger brother and the princess fall in love. Returning victorious from the war, the elder son claims the hand of the princess, but she finds it difficult to decide. The upset younger son goes to battle where he is injured. Realising her folly, the princess attends to her lover. The brothers fight a duel over the princess and the younger brother wins. The lovers marry and rule the kingdom…

Rajakumari and Mahalingam made an attractive pair and the film had tuneful music (composer S.V. Venkataraman, lyrics, Kambadasan and K. P. Kamakshi). Many songs became popular — ‘Vaanulaavum Tharai neeyey' and ‘Odivaa venmugil poley', both duets sung by Mahalingam and Rajakumari.

Joseph directed the film, and produced it assisted by M. Natesan, well-known costume maker of the day, who later became a producer-director. Veteran actress and the first star of Tamil Cinema T. P. Rajalakshmi played the queen mother.

An additional attraction was the dances by Lalitha and Padmini.

Excellently photographed (R. R. Chandran), the film was richly mounted (art direction Joseph Thaliath Jr.).

In spite of them all, Ithaya Geetham did not prove to be a box office success as expected. Joseph dubbed the film into Hindi under the title Jeevan Tara, but it sank without a trace.

The film was mostly shot at Citadel Studios in Kilpauk. Spacious, the studio had one entrance on Landon's Road, and the other on Poonamallee High Road where the Reserve Bank Staff Quarters stand today. The Landon's Road part was sold to a Christian institution. Today only the cement stand with the name ‘CITADEL' exists today; everything else has changed.

Why ‘Citadel'? (Years later, Nagoor told this writer that the favourite novel of Joseph was the famed A. J. Cronin's ‘The Citadel' which he wished to make as his first film. Nagoor advised his friend that Tamil Cinema would not accept such a story, and as a consolation, Joseph named his company ‘Citadel'!)

Remembered for impressive production values, tuneful music and the stunning Rajakumari.

M.G.R’s Grandson’s Passion Comes True






Mr.Vinesh.V.Nair is the grandson of M.G.R’s elder brother M.G.Chakrapani  and son of M.G.Chakrapani’s daughter M.C.Vijayalakshmi.Since childhood he was interested in music and writing,he always wanted to release his own music album and he learnt to play keyboard and guitar.Vinesh has an obsession for motor sport and music of all kinds. He ran a motorsport company in India .In 2004, he was a guest commentator on an F1 feature on GO 92.5, a popular radio station in Mumbai, India. In 2009, Vinesh produced a F1 feature editorial for People Magazine’s India edition covering the full Formula One season of that year.Now he is working in dubai and have his own firm the sphinx group. And now his passion comes true by producing his own music album.

Vin Sinners a.k.a Vinesh Nair started singing in a church choir at the age of 9 because that was his way of getting out of study sessions in boarding school. In 1991, he started writing music and compiled enough material for a full album and named it 'It's just Me' but that never got produced. The same year, Sinners joined hands with Gerard Brewty and put together a band called 'Acanthus' that remained an amateur college band that was inspired by classic 80s rock styling but would often experiment with alternative styles while performing live.


                44452_134128176632227_115656058479439_178331_5773660_n                                  44452_134128186632226_115656058479439_178333_2411051_n           









It was in 1994 that Vinesh used the name Vin Sinners for the first time. In fact, the name appeared in an article he wrote for a local inter-college newspaper and incidentally that article was about the evolution of Guns n' Roses. Acanthus disbanded in 1995 and Gerard migrated down under while Vin pursued a career in advertising and like many others of the time, a talent would lay latent for 14 years.

After those 14 years of silence, Vin Sinners took to writing fresh material in January 2009. By the end of the month, there was enough material for a full studio album but it would remain on the shelf while Vin took to building his new company called The Sphinx Group.With over 37 songs written down fortune had to change at some point. On May 25th, 2010, Sinners was introduced to Atif Javed Ali, an immensely talented musician who runs a studio called 'The Playback Lounge' in Dubai, UAE. In a matter of moments, it was clear that there was something that could come together and the journey to give voice and melody to the heaps of material began. The first song that was completed was 'The Wise Man' a dedication to Sinners' late Father. The rest would start to unfold over the next few months.

Mr Vinesh has a message for all MGR FANS “I also plan to do a song on The Legendary Person who I always admire thiru Puratchi Thalaivar M.G.Ramachandran my grandfather (a hard rock song that will chronicle his life) like I have done for Barack Obama. I will be doing early next year and I planning to have in both English and Tamil ”.

In conversation with  Mr.Vinesh’s mother M.C.Vijayalakshmi,she says she is very excited about the album and waiting for release of the album

Arignar Anna Durai’s 102th Birthday



                                     annadurai_parimalam_20090608 copy


Conjeevaram Natarajan Annadurai (Tamil: காஞ்சீபுரம் நடராஜன் அண்ணாதுரை) (15 September 1909 – 3 February 1969), popularly called Anna (which means elder brother in Tamil), was a former Chief Minister of the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. He was the first member of a Dravidian party to hold that post and was also the first non-Congress leader to form a majority government in independent India.

Annadurai was born on 15 September 1909 in Kanchipuram (then called Conjeevaram), Tamil Nadu, to Natarajan and Bangaru Ammal in a dominant Sengunta Mudaliar caste. He was raised by his sister Rajamani Ammal. At the age of 21, he married Rani while he was still a student. The couple had no children of their own hence they later adopted and raised Rajamani's grandchildren.He attended Pachaiyappa's High School,but left school to work as a clerk in the town's Municipal office to assist with the family finances.In 1934, he graduated with a B.A. degree (Hons) from Pachaiyappa's College in Chennai. He followed that up with a M.A degree in Economics and Politics from the same college. He worked as an English teacher in Pachaiyappa High School. Later he quit the teaching job and began involving himself in journalism and politics.

He was well known for his oratorical skills and was an acclaimed writer in the Tamil language. He had scripted and acted in several plays. Some of his plays were later made as movies. He was the first politician from the Dravidian parties to extensively use Tamil cinema for political propaganda. Born in a middle class family of weavers, he started his career as a school teacher and then moved into the political scene of the Madras Presidency as a journalist. He edited several political journals and enrolled as a member of the Dravidar Kazhagam. As an ardent follower of Periyar E. V. Ramasamy he rose in stature as a prominent member of the party.

With differences looming with Periyar, on issues of separate independent state of Dravida Nadu and on inclusion in the Indian Union, he crossed swords with his political mentor. The antipathy between the two finally erupted when Periyar married Maniammai, a lady much younger than him. Angered by this action of Periyar, Annadurai with his supporters parted from Dravidar Kazhagam and launched his own party, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK). The DMK initially followed ideologies the same as the mother party, Dravidar Kazhagam. But with the evolution of national politics and the constitution of India after the Sino-Indian war in 1963, Annadurai dropped the claim of an independent Dravida Nadu.


Various protests against the then ruling Congress government took him to prison on several occasions. The last was during the Madras anti-Hindi agitation of 1965. The agitation itself helped Annadurai to gain popular support for his party. His party won a landslide victory in the 1967 state elections. His cabinet was the youngest at that time in India. He legalised Self-respect marriages, enforced a two language policy (over the three language formula in other southern states) for the state, implemented subsidising cost of rice and renamed the Madras State to Tamil Nadu.

However, he died of cancer just two years into office and his funeral was the most attended one at that time, holding a Guinness record. Several institutions and organisations are named after him. A splinter party launched by M. G. Ramachandran in 1972 years after the death of Annadurai was named after him as ADMK (Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam).

M.G.Chakrapani's impressive performance in “MahaMaya -1944



P. U. Chinnappa, P. Kannamba, M.G. Chakrapani, N. S. Krishnan, T. A. Mathuram, M. S. Saroja, R. Balasubramaniam, D. Balasubramaniam, S.V. Sahasranamam, M. K. Meenalochani, ‘Baby' T. D. Kusalambal (later, Kushalakumari ), T. Rajbala (later T. R. Rajani) and T. R. B. Rao

Inspired by the unexpected box office success of Kubera Kuchela, the first star screenwriter of Tamil cinema, Elangovan, began to work on his next movie Mahamaya (1944) and according to S. K. Habibullah, (son of S. K. Mohideen,) he worked for nearly a year on the screenplay and had some problems, ending the story. So he worked out three different endings and left the final choice to the producers, M. Somasundaram and ‘SK', and director T. R. Raghunath. And all three endings were shot!

To briefly narrate the storyline…Gandhara princess Mahamaya (P. Kannamba) and Vikram  (P.U. Chinnappa), prince of a neighbouring kingdom, are students of the same guru in an ashram. One day, Mahamaya innocently garlands Vikram's sword unaware of the implication of her act. According to tradition, it means she had married him! However, both get married to different partners, but when they meet again, Vikram reminds her of the garland and insists she belongs to him and when she rejects his advances, he abducts her. Mahamaya escapes but is disowned by her husband. Therefore, she kills her child and herself to prove her chastity.

The successful lead pair of Kannagi, Chinnappa and Kannamba, were cast again in lead roles, Kannamba as Mahamaya and Chinnappa as the king who lusts after her. In his hunt, he is encouraged by his wily friend Neelan, played superbly by M.G.Chakrapani (MGR's brother). This character of the manipulating genius was believed to have been based on the historic character, Kautilya, who wrote the Arthashastra and was advisor to the great Maurya emperor, Chandragupta.

Filmgoers of the 1940s considered this aspect of the king lusting after another person's wife vulgar. Especially after Kannamba had played Kannagi, the personification of chastity among the Tamils. Mahamaya flopped at the box office even though critics considered it a good film and praised the performances of Kannamba, Chinnappa and Chakrapani.

Surprisingly there were only 10 songs, which was rather unusual for a movie of that era. The reason was the restriction on footage (11,000 feet) imposed during the Second World War (1939-1945). S.V. Venkataraman and Kunnakudi Venkatarama Iyer composed the music with the lyrics by Kambadasan and Sundara Vathiyar. However, only one song rendered by Chinnappa, ‘Silaye nee ennidam', became a hit.

This film, which was shot at the Newtone Studio, had technical finesse. The cinematography was by the maestro Marcus Bartley, while Jiten Banerjee (camera), F. Nagoor (art) and Dinshaw K. Tehrani (sound), famed film technicians of that period, and directors of Newtone Studio contributed to the gloss.

There were dances by M. S. Saroja (later Mrs. Raghunath) which were choreographed by M. Meenakshisundaram Pillai and Pandit Bholonath Sharma, a Kashmiri who came down to Madras to work in films. His wife was the noted film star B.S. Saroja and sadly Sharma died in a car accident.

Elangovan was credited as co-director with A. Kasilingam, a fine editor as assistant director, who later became a noted filmmaker.

Despite the pluses, technical and creative, Mahamaya did not make the grade.

Remembered for technical finesse and M. G. Chakrapani's impressive performance.
