Veteran Journalist Abraham Lincon has drawn the cinema map on the life history of Great Pasumpon Thevar who as a freedom fighter with Subhas Chandra Bose movement, had done a lot for India's freedom. Not much known about the contributions made by Thevar, Lincon has made an indepth analysis and visited several places of Thevar's and had brought out a thesis. This is made into film title Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar Varalaru.Recently in press-release the following contents about the Pasumpon Thevar was issued.

I B Karthikeyan’s Papillon Communications which has several years of experience in the advertising industry has made a documentary on the life history of Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar. The documentary is being released on the occasion of Thevar’s 100th anniversary.

Titled ‘Pasumpon Thevar Varalaaaru’, the documentary narrates the story of Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar who worked for the poor and downtrodden people. Muthuramalinga Thevar was born in the Pasumpon Village in Madurai district and had worked with Netaji Subash Chandra Bose for the freedom of the country.

Thevar who was in possession of more than 32 villages, shunned luxury and worked for the freedom of the country and to redeem the people who were suffering in slavery. He also donated all the lands belonging to him without showing any partiality towards any particular religion or caste. However the life history of Thevar who was a national leader and who showed keen interest in spiritualism has been kept in the dark all these years. All the great deeds that he had done have all been hidden from the public eyes for the sole reason that he was born as a Tamilian.

To present the true picture about Thevar’s life history, Papilon communications has made a documentary after carrying out meticulous research on his life. The documentary running for about 75 minutes narrates with proof the service of Thevar in the freedom struggle and his contributions after the country became free. Advanced 3D technology and animation have been used to depict some of the sequences where no video footage is available.

The documentary has been filmed extensively at several places including Madurai, Ramanathapuram, Tiruchy, Uraiyur, Pudhukottai, Thanjavur, Aaduthurai, Vellore, Kallupatti, and Pulichikulam where Thevar had lived and visited. The Muthukulathur incident which is recorded in history has also been filmed without any deviation from the truth. The Aimuga Vinayagar temple built and consecrated by Thevar is also featured in the documentary. The documentary features three songs penned by Yugabharathi. The music has been scored by Vijay Antony and actor Vagai Chandrasekar has lent his voice for narration.

M P Abraham Lincoln who has served as a correspondent for several years with various dailies including Daily Thanthi, Dhina Bhoomi, Kathiravan, Dhinamalar, Dinakaran and Tamilmurasu and several weeklies has taken care of the research, compilation, script and direction of the documentary. The documentary is based on solid research backed by sufficient evidence for all the incidents narrated.

After Guru the movie-making maverick, Mani Ratnam, was bound to return to his favourite actor. It comes as no surprise to know Abhishek Bachchan and Mani Ratnam will team up again for their third film together.

After the terrific tuning that they shared during Yuva (which Abhishek describes as his career's first turning-point) and Guru, it doesn't require much calculation to see the creative and commercial viability of the Mani-Abhishek pair. Abhishek's better half too is back in the Mani- fold.

Coming out of his bereavement (Mani lost his brother earlier this year), Mani Ratnam is all set to announce a supple romantic film featuring filmdom's foremost marital pair.

Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan will come together in Mani Ratnam's film that starts shooting in September.

According to a source very close to the project: "It's going to be a very intense love story. Where Guru was more a bio-pic with a cavalcade of characters claiming screen space, this film will focus primarily on the romance. It's a very intense film. Mani's most romantic film to date. And yes, it's again based on real life characters."

An allegedly fudged residence certificate and the absence of divorce documents have put a question mark on the legal validity of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt's marriage with Manyata in Goa.

According to the state government, a residence certificate submitted by Manyata for registration of the wedding has been kept under suspension until the completion of an ongoing inquiry.

The inquiry into the authenticity of the residence certificate was ordered earlier this week by South Goa collector G P Naik. The marriage registration cannot be legally documented without the couple furnishing "certain papers" that are mandatory, officials said on Saturday.

Sub-registrar of Salcete (South Goa) Chandrakant Pisurlekar said the office of 'mamlatdar' (a senior revenue official) has issued a letter, which says the residence certificate of Manyata should be kept under suspension pending the completion of the inquiry.

The residence certificate of Manyata is under investigation as it didn't have the signature of the 'mamlatdar', the official who issues the certificate. The residence certificate, submitted by Manyata saying she had stayed in Goa for six months, has only the signature of 'talathi' (a lower level revenue official). The 'talathi' has been suspended for issuing an "illegal" residence certificate.

Pisurlekar said along with the residence certificate, both Dutt and his wife require to submit documents of their divorce as well. "Both are divorcees. So the documents should include divorce papers too," he said.

“Entertaining the crowd is not that tough but speaking sense is what matters the most…,” director-cum-actor Cheran spoke sense reflecting his reel image in every single action of his.

The three time national award winner was speaking at a function to distribute laptops to students of Raja College of Engineering and Technology here.

Reminiscing the days he spent at Industrial Training Institute, he urged the students to set a goal for themselves and go heart out to achieve it come what may.

“Don’t forget your roots. For, they will keep you grounded,” he exhorted. Expressing concern over the craze for courses in information technology, he said that people had became so self-centred that they dreamt of constructing their own house, car and other facilities forgetting the necessity to raise crops to feed them.

“Farming activity is not only a profession but a necessity. Many farmers have lost interest in agriculture and are migrating to urban centres looking for greener pastures. Under these circumstances it becomes imperative for people to create an awakening among the public on declining farm activities. As a son of the soil, I have started to practise what I preach in my life,” he said.


Relying on simplicity, Cheran said: “What I am now is an outcome of 15 years of struggle.” He urged them to spare a thought for the society, which had contributed a lot to their development. “What are you going to do for your society? Design your life in such a way that you can contribute something to the welfare of the society.”

He was very particular to note that the real taste of success could not be felt unless the society to which a person belonged to acknowledge the effort. “A person will be remembered as a thinker only when his society benefits from his or her contribution,” was his parting shot.

The college management arranged for distribution of 600 laptops in easy repayment options for the students. G. Nagarajan, college chairman and S.M. Sekkilar, Principal, were present.

BY.N.THYAGARAJAN

Produced By: Lotus Film Company (P) Ltd

Story, Screen Play & Direction: Prem

Music Direction: Sabesh - Murali

Cinematography: Om Prakash

Editor: Bhaskaran

PRO: Vijay Murali

Actors: Prem, Anusri, Pooja Bharat, Raguvaran, Rajeev, Anand Raj.

A commander-in-chief saves the life of the Indian Prime Minister who comes to Coimbatore from a terrorist group. This is the single line of the story narrated in a beautiful way without any ingredient for reaching the point of satiety. The story is narrated with various chains of reactions. From the scene of the PM getting admitted to a hospital after receiving bullet injuries and with a flashback of a military officer Raguvaran who looses his job in the 1971 Pakistan War taking revenge against his own mother country and the government with his association of another villain Anand Raj, the scenes of the film move fastly. Ananda Raj dialogues in this film saying that there might be a lot of diversions and differences in India due to various religions and castes, but once the people come to know that India is being attacked, they all would sink their differences and act unitedly to fight for their country, receive thunderous applause's from the audiences for each show.

Anand Raj, Raghuvaran and Rajeev have done their role well. Prem as commander-in-chief in this film does a lot of action equivalent to western films. Anusri and Pooja Bharath who are portrayed in this film as beautiful angels have also done their roles naturedly. Debutant hero Naveen shown in this film as a person who reaches the stages of death and comes back to his life is something new in the Tamil film history. Sabesh-Murali music is good.

One can call the film is a serious film without any item songs or duet songs. To Prem you can say "Zinda Baad".
