MGR's Doctor

Sri MGR Year 95, 23rd April, Monday

MGR Devotee Sailesh Basu has forwarded this news article which appeared in Times of India. Dr.Sathyanarayana who have operated our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR when he was shot by M.R.Radha on 12th January 1967.

The News Article is given below:
 
ENT specialist Dr C Sathyanarayana, who removed the bullet from former chief minister M G Ramachandran's neck after he was shot by his actor colleague M R Radha, died at his residence in Anna Nagar on Wednesday. He was 99. Dr Sathyanarayana is survived by his wife, two sons and five grandchildren.

Dr Sathyanarayana was born on October 6, 1913 in East Godavari district of the then Madras presidency. He studied at Madras Medical College (MMC) and joined Stanley Medical College Hospital in Chennai as a lecturer. In 1957, he was transferred to the MMC, where he later became the founder director of Institute of Otorhinolaryngology.


His colleagues remember him as one of the finest surgeons. He was a personal physician to many VVIPs, including former chief minister of Madras presidency C Rajagopalachari. Dr Sathyanarayana was invited as a guest at the White House when John F Kennedy was the American president.


His former colleague and ENT surgeon Dr S Kameshwaran remembers him as a beautiful sculptor. "He sculpted in his free time. During surgery, we still saw his artistic skills. His surgeries were very neat and clean," said Dr Kameshwaran.


But his most unforgettable surgery was the one done of MGR. On Jan 12, 1967, when MGR was wheeled into the Government General Hospital with bullet injuries in his neck, many distinguished doctors did not want to operate on him. Dr Sathyanarayana pulled out the bullet that was stuck in his collar bone. "If the surgery had failed, it could have proved fatal for MGR. It must have been a challenge to operate when there was so much public attention," Dr Kameshwaran said.


He was also known for his research and was the first honorary editor of the Indian Journal of Otolaryngology. "He stopped practicing medicine six years ago but he continued to give advice to his students till a few days ago," said his grandson and theatre actor Ajit Chitturi.

70 MM MGR Movie

Sri MGR Year 95, 16th April, Monday

 

The first Tamil movie with 70 mm was Maaveeran which was released in 1986. But before that, in 1975 a 70 MM movie was planned by G.Umapathy who was the first producer for Tamil Cinemascope movie Nadigar Thilagam’s Raja Raja Cholan in 1973.

 

I had an opportunity to handle the Thirai Ulagam 1.9.1975 edition. In that the first page article is titled “Makkal Thilagam MGR Iru vedangalil nadika Oru Kodi Rubai selavil 70 MMyil uruvagum muthal Tamil padam – G.Umapathy thayarikirar”.

 

thirai_ulagam_2

 

The movie is based on the novel written by Kalki titled Sivagamiyin Sabatham. The 7th century story – The vow of Sivagami, MGR doing a dual role as the King Mahendra Varman and Mamallan Narasimha Pallavan, Muthuraman as aide in the role of Paranjothi, the villain for MGR is M.N.Nambiyar he is also doing a dual role of Naganandhi and Chalukya King Pulikesi. The supporting characters will be enacted by S.V.Subbaiah and S.Varalakshmi.

 

thirai_ulagam_front_page

 

The background music is by S.M.Subbaiah, dialogues by P.Neelakantan, choreography by Gopalakrishnan, since the movie is a historical one, the huge sets will be done by Angamuthu and camera is handled by two cameramen Balakrishnan and for the wrestling fight it will be Ravikanth who is a famous cameraman for trick shots.

 

The movie project was dropped as MGR became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, we were unfortunate in a way that this 70 MM MGR movie was not made.

 

The Newspaper Thiraiulagam was forwarded by Olikirathu Urimaikural MGR Editor B.S.Raj to share in our MGR Blog.

Malai Kallan Book

Sri MGR Year 95, 6th April, Friday

The Hindu Friday issue in Books review column, a Tamil novel by name Malaikkallan written by Namakkal Kavignar (Namakkal Ramalingam Pillai) was reviewed. Below is the review that has appeared.

 

malaikallan_book

 

A classic, this novel of adventure has been released after a gap of 16 years. The first edition rolled out in 1942 and was a best seller.

 

The celluloid version with MGR and Bhanumathi in the lead was a super hit too. The story of a golden-hearted bandit and his escapades laced with romance has eternal charm although the style and diction do sound outdated.

 

The book is published by:

 

Pazhaniappa Brothers, Chennai.

Price of the book is Rs.150.

 

malaikallan_movie

 

The movie was shot in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages. But the Tamil version enacted by MGR received the Government of India Lotus Award.

 

The cast includes apart from MGR and Bhanumathi are; M.G.Chakrapani (as the Inspector) T.S.Durairaj, Sriram, D.Balasubramaniam, P.S.Gnanam, E.R.Sahadevan.
