Tamils’ First Space Movie

Sri MGR Year 100, 10th December Sunday

In Tamil Cinema, science fiction movies are seldom tried. 2 generations back talking about science fiction based stories are termed nerdy, and our way of living those days saw movies based on the day to day life of a simpleton. And the film technology was in nascent stage, never able to compete with standards set by Hollywood.

Earth man (MGR) fighting with an alien villain (Nambiyar)

But they tried. Many of MGR fans had the information that our Puratchi Thalaivar movie was first to try such a theme. In 1963, Kalai Arasi was released. MGR acted in dual role one an Earth man and another an alien. The movie has many technical shots and breathtaking miniatures effects.

In Daily Thanthi yesterday paper they have written an article about a new movie starring Jayam Ravi titled Tik Tik Tik, a science fiction space thriller that is going to be released soon. In that article the writer has mentioned that Jayam Ravi movie is not the first of its kind as earlier a MGR movie had space theme in Kalai Arasi. The full article is given below, click the below image to expand.

Sri MGR Year 100, November 26th Sunday

2017 is the centenary year of beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, MGR fan clubs, associations and as well as the Government are celebrating in grand manner.

Recently I happened to see an ad in Daily Thanthi that a new movie on the life story of MGR is going to be produced by Ramana Communications who had already produced life of Kamaraj movie.

The ad placed in the Tamil Newspaper

I also saw that the shooting was held and the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy presiding the function. The movie is been directed by A.Balakrishnan and for the first short Satish Kumar acted as MGR.

Let us go back a few years many have started the project for small screen and as well as for big screen. Do you remember Idhayam Pesugirathu Manian presented MGR life story in Sun TV which telecasted couple of episodes and I don’t know what happened to the remaining episodes.
