The first colour movie from Devar Films was Thanthaiyum Maganum. When MGR was shot by M.R.Radha in 12 January 1967, Chinnappa Devar approached MGR and booked in couple of films such as Vivasahi, Ther Thiruvizha, Kadhal Vaganam and Thanthaiyum Maganum (Father and Son).

 

All other movies were released and this movie did not go to shooting stage. And after many years Devar Films first colour movie in Tamil, Nalla Neram was released in 1972.

 

In the end of 1969 Emgeeyar Productions planned to produce a big budget movie Inaintha Kaigal story written by Ravindran. We already posted about this movie. Planned to be shot in Iran, the Government of Iran did not gave permission for the shooting and the movie was dropped with two days shooting. MGR then planned to shoot Ulagam Sutrum Tamilan later named as Ulagam Sutrum Vaaliban.
