Dear Friends,

Today is the death anniversary of the one and only “நடிகர் திலகம்”. Hence, I decided to come out with this article on this day in remembrance of the great artiste, of whom I am also a big fan.

It is a well accepted fact that Sivaji Ganesan is perhaps the best actor of our times. I am sure every one will agree that what MSV is to Light Music, is Sivaji to Acting. There can be no second thoughts about it. MSV has the unique distinction of scoring music for more than 40% of Sivaji movies.

But the fact is Sivaji’s task of coming out with special performance for many of the intriguing songs was instigated by MSV, by His visualizing how Sivaji will act/react to such a lyric/song-situation in the respective movies. May be that’s a reason for MSV turning out to be an actor later on, giving good performances in some of the Films and TV Serials. Of course, there was another actor in the form of TMS who rendered such expressive singing – perhaps MSV was the Master in bringing out the best from TMS – which further contributed to the value of such songs and made them huge hits.

I am listing below 20 special numbers as examples to augment the above factor:

ேதவேன என்ைனப் பாருங்கள் (ஞான ஒளி)
ெதய்வேம ெதய்வேம (ெதய்வ மகன்)
அந்த நாள் ஞாபகம் (உயர்ந்த மனிதன்)
நியும் நானுமா (ெகளரவம்)
பாலூட்டி வளர்த்த கிளி (ெகளரவம்)
யாரந்த நிலவு (சாந்தி)
எங்ேக நிம்மதி (புதிய பறைவ)
பூ முடிப்பாள் இந்தப் பூங்குழலி (ெநஞ்சிருக்கும் வைர)
ேசாதைன ேமல் ேசாதைன (தங்கப் பதக்கம்)
ேபானால் ேபாகட்டும் ேபாடா (பாலும் பழமும்)
அம்மாடி ெபாண்ணுக்குத் தங்க மனசு (ராமன் எத்தைன ராமனடி) (2 versions)
பைடத்தாேன (நிச்சய தாம்பூலம்)
அம்மம்மா தம்பி என்று நம்பி (ராஜபார்ட் ரங்கதுைர)
ஆயிரத்தில் ஒருத்தியம்மா நி (ைக ெகாடுத்த ெதய்வம்)
யாைர நம்பி நான் ெபாறந்ேதன் (எங்க ஊர் ராஜா)
நிலைவப் பார்த்து வானம் ெசான்னது (சவாேல சமாளி)
அடி என்னடி ராக்கம்மா (ேசாக version) (பட்டிக்காடா பட்டணமா)
ெபான்மகள் வந்தாள் (ெசார்கம்)
எல்ேலாரும் நலம் வாழ (எங்க மாமா)
சக்க ேபாடு ேபாடு ராஜா (பாரத விலாஸ்)

In all these songs, one felt that it is Sivaji who himself has sung and not TMS. Especially, nobody realized that the voice for dialogues in some of these songs, like
“உங்கள் மந்ைதயிலிருந்து இரண்டு ஆடுகள் ேவரு ேவரு பாைதயில் ேபாயவிட்டன”,
“ஆயிரம் இருந்தூம் வசதிகள் இருந்தூம் no peace of mind”,
“அந்த அழகு ெதய்வத்தின் மகனா இவன்”,
“குழந்ைத என் ைகைய கடித்துவிட்டது ேபாடா ேபா”,
“அந்த நாள் ஞாபகம் ெநஞ்சிேல வந்தேத”,
“நித்தமும் நாடகம் நித்தமும் நாடகம் நிைனெவல்லாம் காவியம்”,
and the dialogues in ”சக்க ேபாடு ேபாடு ராஜா “,
was that of TMS and not Sivaji. All credit to TMS for this splendid work. But the Man behind all this success was none other than our Master, who apart from His “The Ultimate” status in Light Music, had the skills to get in to Sivaji’s shoes and compose songs for “The Actor” in the best possible and most fitting manner.

This is not to take away any credit whatsoever from the great Sivaji, but only to highlight the acting side of our Master, which I am sure every one will appreciate.

With best regards,

Venu Soundar,
Mumbai
