MGR And Musical Instrument

Puratchi Thalaivar MGR is a great music lover everybody knows that he selects a particular tune for his songs which are still remembered by his fans and music lovers.


One month ago MGR Devotee Tirupur Ravichandran gave an idea of posting about the musical instruments that MGR used in his 115 Hero movies. Then he started to send various images of our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar Ponmanachemmal MGR with musical instruments.


I categorised into two segments one is Western and another Indian musical instruments.


Below are the images forwarded by Tirupur Ravichandran to share this in our MGR Blog.




In the movie Ninaithathai Mudipavan MGR uses lots of musical instruments, trumpet, clarinet, band etc. The above image is the musical instrument of clarinet family.

  4. India as a country has made it big in many fields of art like music or movies, dancing and painting etc. It remains home for some of the best talents that the world has ever seen. All these artists today have made a mark on the international front owing it to their skills and religious practice. They have taken the Indian art, culture, music and dance beyond geographic boundaries. In case of the Indian singers, their soothing voices have reached out to and won many hearts globally. When it comes to Bollywood Hindi music, old is gold proves to be true. Eminent composers and singers like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, S.P. Balasubramaniam etc. have created music that everyone loves to listen to even today. `
