M.R.Radha





Last Year I was asked by Chennai heritage/Madras Musings to present a Talk with Film Clips during the Chennai Week. The topic last year was Chennai as a backdrop in Films 1930s to 1960s. Stills from that research are seen in my earlier Blog. It was so wonderful an experience for me that I unhesitatingly accepted to deliver one more this year. My Talk this year is on the famed M.R.Radha. The first is in Tamil and the second in English. It is expected that I will shut up in an hour 's time.....but even if we double it , we can all be back home or out partying by 8.30 PM.

Hello Sir,
I'm Senthil from Gobi(Erode Dt.), working in Chennai, as a Software Engineer.
I'm here to clarify one thing. I'm searching for a film for a long time. I've forgert the name of that film. I'd remember only two of the actors, acted in it. One is actress Revathy. Another one is you. In that film, you are a friend/advocate for a person, who did the negative role. I think he's a general in Army. He used to give choclates to his boys. In one scene, you'd warned his enemies about him by saying the following dialogue. Let ABC be his Name in the film.
" ABC யாருன்னு நினைசீங்க?
அவன்(ர்) நிழலைக் கூட உங்களால touch பண்ணமுடியாது. Mind it."

I'm searching this film's name for the past couple of years. But I couldn't find. Could you please e-mail me the name of that film to me? My e-mail address is senthilmka@yahoo.com.

Thanks Sir,
Regards,
SenthilMohan K Appaji.
