When the Tamil movie industry was primarily dialogue-driven, MGR turned the tide around by packaging small pockets of profound wisdom in his film songs.
Eminent Tamil poets like Bharathiyar, Bharathidasan and Kannadasan joined hands with the enigmatic numero uno star of Tamil Cinema, MG Ramachandran or MGR.
The profound meaning and wisdom in MGR’s film songs were highly liberating and morale-boosting for the common folk, who cherished the songs delivered by MGR close to their heart.
The songs hit the bull’s eye of the heart of the common man whose mundane sufferings in life they addressed. Yet, they had so much of heightened esoteric philosophy inherent in them in different multiple layers.
Such was the magic of a combination like MGR as the protagonist delivering the lines of Kavi Arasu (King among Lyricists) Kannadhasan, Paavendhar Bharathidasan, Bharathiyar and so on and so forth.
Not only did the songs enchant the common folk, the coolie to the multi-millionaire, women, children and the older folk, they also helped the political ascent of MGR to the stature of three-time Chief Minister of the state, Tamil Nadu.
Such magic, such mega events, such a brobdingnagian success story and a huge proportion of what caused them, the songs, the insights they shed into our lives and how all of them come together to make a great leader and a great society do warrant a read.
