Sri MGR Year 93, 20th May Thursday
Tamil Cinema has unique features and trends. Some actors became trendsetters with their singing capacity or action or style or expression and dialogue delivery. The trend in Tamil Cinema during 1930’s to early 1950’s were songs more number of songs was sure success in Box Office. This changed when the Dravidian ideologues from Drama entered Cinema in late 1940’s, then Dialogues ruled the Cinema, lengthier the dialogues are, people were glued to their actors performance.
This dialogue trend lasted for two decades, most of MGR movies were centered during the peak of Dialogue period of Tamil Cinema. But in MGR movies lengthy dialogues were seldom used even MGR own production “Nadodi Mannan” released in 1958 did not have lengthy dialogues, powerful shorter ones were used. 2 or 3 minutes powerful dialogues gave the needed cause in movie goers, that same effect was also done by 10 second shorter dialogues, often called as One liners and now popularly known as Punch dialogs. There are thousands of witty one liners and philosophical one liners and shorter dialogs in MGR movies, it is impossible to reproduce the entire catchy lines from MGR movies in our Blog but very important ones can be done. As a part of this mission and to enlighten some of young MGR Fans and MGR Admirers with help from MGR Devotee Sailesh Basu I will try to provide unique, exciting, creative catchy lines performed by MGR in his Movies.
Here I have given three dialogues from movies Sangay Muzhangu and Ayirathil Oruvan, the first dialog is from a Court scene during the climax were MGR tells about himself (the Character) but it suits his real life.
The Second dialogues are from Ayirathil Oruvan the famous witty one liners between MGR and M.N.Nambiyar. Enjoy and please comment and provide some more information from MGR movies regarding the dialogues.
