The artist who refused to write dialogues in MGR’s film… should have been a tiger!!


1954 movie “Malaikallan” starring MGR and Banumathi. The film was directed by Sriramulu Naidu. Artist M. Karunanidhi penned the dialogues for the film and poet Namakkal wrote the story for the film.



Namakkal is a poet and Congressman who wrote the story for the movie “Malaikallan”. So the artist was initially reluctant to write the dialogues for the film.

However, it came to a point that MGR could act as the hero only if the artist wrote the dialogues for the film. That is, the director and producer of this film Sriramulu Naidu said to MGR that “I will make the film with you as the hero only if the artist writes the dialogues for this film”.

In such a predicament, MGR visited the artist in person. He expressed his problem to the artiste and requested, “Anyway, you have to write the dialogue for this film”. Being a close friend of MGR during that period, the artist agreed to write the dialogues for the movie “Malaikallan”.

However, when the artist worked on the film, there were frequent fights between him and director Sriramulu. So when the work of this film was completed, the artist said, “Don’t put my name in the title of this film”.

The artist’s verses were very popular in those days. In this situation, the artist said that his name should not be put in the title, which shocked the director. After that, MGR again visited the artist in person, convinced him and brought him to the director. Only then did the artist allow his name to be used in the title.
