A tribute to ‘Sivaji’ Ganesan

Early I use to see lot of MGR movies which are Action oriented, fights, inspiring songs, dialogues etc., in his movies he will be like normal person and fights for justice and become famous person. But in SG movies he will be already a famous person, circumstances made him downfall at last he will be a normal person. Then he started variance in dialogues, continuous dialogues with variation and expressions in his face. He made his debut in ‘Parasakthi’ who will forgot the court scene “Odinaal Odinaal Vaazhkayin Orethirke Odinaal”, and the song “Kaa Kaa Kaa” the song about crows how they shows their friendship among themselves. When EVR Periyar, CN Annadurai & M Karunanidhi found his navarasa and dialogues in stage, that art brought the role for Parasakthi. Later in Manohara, “Poruthathu pothum Pongi Ezhu” Kannamba tell this dialogue after that with his acting he will show breaking chains in action, this is called versatile. Andha Naal movie, this is the first Sivaji Ganesan movie I saw, which I immediately liked it, when AV Meyyappa chettiar went to Japan he saw the movie and immediately he decided to produce this movie in Tamil, that time, SG got hero fame at that time, this movie has anti-hero role, he accepted and done beautifully. In this thriller, gives the dialogue “Kolayum seivaal pathini”. I guess only film he acted with MGR is “Koondukili” also donned with negative role. He acted the movie called “Thooku Thooki” it revealed the message for Father, Mother, sister, wife and friend. The dance for “Yaaradi nee moghini” added his verstality. “Sabaash Meena” which is comedy movie then remade with Karthik and Coundamany. The patriotic dialogues “Vari vatti kishti” also acted with two hero movies. 
Paasa Malar the unique kind of acting, “Malarndum Malaraadha”, “Kaiveesamma Kaiveesu” these songs and dialogues given stardom to his acting. In movie “Karnan” he played the title role, he made justice to the role which is superhit in his career. It is digitalized and given 5.1 channel sound mix and re-released. In movie “Navarathri” he played 9 roles with different acting. In Thiruvilayadal he made different roles but more than that in every temples the audio release made his entry. “Motor Sundaram Pillai” he acted as father, “Ooty varai uravu” he played youth role. He acted in most Indian language movies, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada etc., Trishulam it is huge hit in Tamil Film Industry on those days. Lateron he did many movies then he donned a father role in “Thevar Magan” & “Padayappa”. I use to see his movies in weekends, we are mesmerized and involved in his movies. He awarded with Filmfare, Padma Shri, Padmabushan & 2 Xavier awards. He got the special jury National award for Thevar Magan. His dialogues, acting, face expressions will be forever.
