Ever since I came to know that Kamal Hassan’s next project is titled Marmayogi, and that it is the title of a 1951 MGR movie, I have been trying to get the old movie. Any amount of search on the Internet has proved abortive. I cannot even find a single song from the movie, let alone the movie’s soundtrack.
My travails have produced only very limited information – that it was the first Tamil movie to bear an A-certificate; that it was not MGR who essayed the title role, but that it was Serukalathun Sama (whom I have hitherto not heard of – it seems he played Kambar in the 1937 version of Ambigapathy, in which MKT played the lead – I haven’t seen this movie either); that Marmayogi was a king; that MGR played Karikalan; and that Pandharibai and Anjali Devi were also in the cast.
I invite readers to share more details about the 1951 movie – storyline, plot details, links etc. Thanks in advance.
