Iru Kodugal to be screened at IFFI Golden Jubliee

By N.Thyagarajan


The IFFI has planned to screen the National Film Award film Iru Kodugal at its Golden Jubilee celebration to be held in Goa. The film directed by the late Director K.Balachander for the story of I.Joseph Anandan will steal the show among various other films to be screened at the IFFI. it is said.

Late Director K.Balachander could not be forgotten  for his acumen in direction and also in penning dialogues, in 70s and 80s gave many successful films. Todays popular actors like Kamalahassan and Rajinikanth are popular because both of them were from the school of Balachander, I have been hearing on many occasions from various people.
Balachander might have directed various films and written dialogues, but one would not forget the two of his films, Edhir Neechal with Nagesh in the lead role pairing with Jayanthi and another one Iru Kodugal with Gemini Ganesan and Jayanthi.

In Edhir Neechal, Jayanthi-Nagesh and in Iru Kodugal Jayanthi with Gemini Ganesan along with Sowcar Janaki took the film to a pinnacle house. There are no love scenes between Jayanthi and Gemini Ganesan in Iru Kodugal. The hero and the heorine appear as mother and father of two children who are studying with the only one son of Sowcar Janaki. Gemini comes to know that his previous love Sowcar Janaki becomes IAS when she gets transferred where Gemini Ganesan is working as a clark in the same government department.

Gemini Ganesan falls in love with Sowcar Janaki, when he make visits to Varanasi and looking for a coffee shop. Sowcar Janaki who then as a girl, daughter of V.S.Raghavan understands that a Tamil from Chennai wanted to have a cup of coffee. She to divert the attention of Gemini Ganesan, she speaks in Tamil from kitchen. She also supplies a cup of coffee and this creates love between them.

Nagesh as another clerk in Gemini Ganesan's office, with his comedies and best supportive actfor the story's narration.

I am seeing people still today, including several youngsters have been watching the film, for the story of I Joseph Anandan who had penned the story. Incidentally, he was also a colleague of the late Director in a Central Government office.

If one should appreciate the 1969 Tamil films , one has no option, other than to accept the story-line of the Iru Kodugal, for which it has no other parallel line.

One more remarkable scene in the film was that Comedian C.K.Nagesh appears as Poet Bharathi for a song of the film. ( Pappa Paatu Paadiya Bharathi Naan dhaney)

Azhagu serial spins around affection of mother towards her two daughters

( By N,Thyagarajan )

Azhagu serial which occupiesimportant place every day with numerous audience for the story-line as well for the film actress Revathy (Asha) and Thalaivasal Vijay, has an unending enmity between two sisters who were separated when both were hardly young.

People who watch the telecast of the serial every day in evenings between 6.30 pm and 7 pm, are wondering over the absence of the house which was bought not for a song but for Rupees one crore.

One can't deny simply that all the characters has no value at all, because, each and every character involves with the story and if one becomes absent on a particular day, the audience are recalling what happened to the other character on the particular day.

Poorna who envies Sudha knows that the latter is her elder sister, but did not show any courtesy or sympathy and continues to take revenge. Sudha who also knows that Poorna is her younger sister, takes lightly all that Poorna does against her. But being a sympathiser and not interested in taking severe action against Poorna, Sudha from the beginning has been very kind and also wins in all the tricky plan to attack her.
In the initial stages, the story begins from Kumbakonam exhibiting all important scenes to make the story very stronger.
When the director is going go make realize Poorna about all her evil doings against her own sister and how the story has been taken still remains a mystery. And that is the trick the story-writer employs to attract a large number of the serial viewers.
