சுந்தரேசா.. ஒலி உண்டு .. ஆனால் ..ஓளி இல்லை

Although hit by recent drawbacks, there is no doubt that RajiniKanth still continues to remain possibly, even now, the best bet for any producer in TamilNadu. When one thinks of Rajinikanth’s humble origins in the 1970s, one if reminded of his characters as Parattai in BharathiRaja’s ’16 Vayathinile’, Mahendran’s ‘Mullum Malarum’ and a few K.Balachander Movies.. Several of Rajini’s movies are relatively unknown to most people..

In recent years, several movies, long believed to be lost, are resurfacing, although, they are far from perfect, and one realises that thanks to the Digital technology of today, we have managed to salvage atleast something, an advantage that the classics made prior to 1950 did not have and were allowed to die.

The picture is hardly rosy.. But this one is a strange case.. Sathurangam is a 1978 movie directed by Durai of Pasi Fame. It also stars yesteryear actor Sreekanth, of Thangapathakkam Fame ( seen as Sonia Agarwal’s Father in Kadhal Konden), Thengai Srinivasan, Actress Prameela, Actress Jayachitra ( Inakki Setha .. Naalakki Paal Fame), to cite a few..

So, why is this example so strange? It is a case of the video visuals of the first half available, but the video content of the second half is missing. The movie ( i suppose the exclusive rights holder) has uploaded the same movie, on three seperate occasions, and three times, the visuals are not accessible beyond the same point.. Using my sources of DVD retailers, i was not able to get a copy of this movie at all. It is quite unlikely that this movie is being sold as a DVD copy in TamilNadu.. No other copy of this film seems to have surfaced online, as well..

Incidentally, watching this movie reminds one of a famous movie, made by Visu.. That calls for a seperate post in itself, though. With the help of the available audio, I have managed to construct the rest of the movie sequence. I hope this benefits someone.

Movie Synopsis – Part I

  1. The scene opens auspiciously in a Brahmin household. Sundaresan suddenly comes running ( RajiniKanth). HIs brother RamKumar (Srikanth) has thrown a Rubber snake to scare him and tell him to finish his bath quickly. ( Rajini appears to be of a fearful character in this scene, while Srikanth appears to be a more dominant personality.)
  2. RamKumar tells Sundaresan to finish his bath soon, and waits for him, when Thengai Srinivasan comes to thier house. Rajini is the elder working brother and it is he who is sponsoring college education for the younger brother – Srikanth. Their mother Pandari Bai appears to be a widow.
  3. Thengai Srinivasan is Pandari Bai’s son-in-law, but unfortunately his wife has passed away. Yet, he maintains co-ordial relations with this family.
  4. There is a character in Rajini’s office who takes bribes .. A woman ( married possibly) who has put on lots of weight who flirts with this character, and Rajini – The Samiyar, as he is called by the Younger ladies.
  5. After a barrage of teasing, Rajini is surrounded by Young women staff – The ladies try to tease Rajini repeatedly on sexual matters , before he gives them a befitting reply, when they ask him, what he would do after he gets married – ‘Unga Appa Amma.. Enna Senjangalo, Adha Dhaan Naanum Seiven’.. The girls immediately run away from the place.
  6. Y.G.mahendra and Srikanth along with a group of their friends, tease the girls regularly in college. They also tease the college Professor.
  7. The scene turns tragic when the teasing friends, push the Professor’s tiffen box and it falls on the ground, with contents scattered. The Professor curses them – ‘Oru Yezhai Professor Vaithula Aduchutele. Urupadamaatel.. Sathyama Urupudamaatel.
  8. As Srikanth tries to warn the hapless professor of further complaints to the Principal, a woman comes in between, and pushes him away supporting the Professor. As Srikanth gets angry with the Girl, Y.G.Mahendra pleads to him, ‘Dey, enakku Irukradhu Orey oru Murai Ponnu Mattum Dhaan da.. En Vazhkaiya Soonyam aakidatha da‘, to which Jayachitra now in her car replies arrogantly back, ‘Ille Naa. Mattum.. Ivaru Kizhichiruvaaru‘. 
  9. Thengai Srinivasan brings his sister to Pandari Bai’s house. Thengai is trying to arrange an alliance for her, but she wants a wealthy alliance. Thengai is poor and his sister is uneducated, so getting a groom as per her taste will be difficult says Thengai – AUDIO SYNC Missing..
  10. Rajini enters the house and is shocked to see the girl having grown so big..
  11. Rajini gives his salary slip directly to his mother and then asks for Rs.10 for some expense. His mother tells that you should have taken it and then given the remaining to me. Thengai sees this and is very happy. He blesses Rajini and praises showers on him making his mother happy.
  12. The professor comes home to complain about (RamKumar) Srikanth, to say that he is teasing him everyday in office.  The Professor says that his name is ‘Anatharaman’ but he is called as ‘Kathirikai Thalaiyan’ by Ramkumar and his group.
  13. RamKumar comes home & Rajini, Thengai and Pandari Bai satirically remind him in various ways of the word ‘Kathirikai’. She instructs him to bring the family Undiyal and to follow their family practice, that anyone who made a mistake would drop a coin in it. As Srikanth brings the Undiyal, instead of him, his mother drops a coin and disappointingly says ‘Unna Pethetha Thappu Thaanda‘. She leaves the scene disaapointedly followed by Rajini and Thengai in different directions, leaving Srikanth with the Undiyal.
  14. The Next day, Ramkumar and his groups of friends block the Professor coming on a cycle. The feared Professor turns around when Jayachitra in her car stops him. She asks him to put the cycle in the car’s dicky and escorts him to college, as the young boys sing the famous ‘Surangani Surangani Song ‘..
  15. Jayachitra’s friend asks her if she can’t ask her father to get Ramkumar dismissed, as he is spoiling everybody. ( Jayachitra’s father may be a big shot in this colllege), to which she replies – ‘Avan Dhandikka pada vendiyavan illa, kandikka pada vendiyan.
  16. The next day as the fearful Professor returns fearing Ramkumar, some thugs who live in the Professor’s colony get agitated and want to take it out on Ramkumar, inspite of the Professor’s inhibitions.
  17. As the Thugs start bashing Srikanth, YG Mahendra rushes and informs Rajini, who comes to save his brother. Rajini does not fight like a hero, but rather fights like a sidekick like YGMahendra ( maybe  due to his fearful nature.)
  18. As the fight gets over, Srikanth is surprised to se his brother fight like this and wishes him : a Real life dialogue : ‘Paarada.Naan unna ennamo nenachen? Shoka fight panriye. Srikanth madiriye irundadhu.. Ok.. Ok.. Rajinikanth madiriye irundadhu.”
  19. V.k.Ramaswamy is a man who wants problems, in his life, only to realize the value of happiness. He says he has none, so he himself has instigated labour problems in his factory.
  20. V.k.Ramaswamy is Jayachitra’s dad and Y.G.Mahendra’s mama. Labour people have come to his house, because VKR has purposely said that losses have happened and he can provide only 4 % bonus for this year. He purposely tries to instigate the labourers into a word fight. But surprisingly, the labourers say that they do not even want the 4% bonus in order to show their faithfulness to their boss, and leave happily shouting slogans in favour of VKR, leaving him shocked and stunned.
  21. Thengai has arranged an alliance for his sister and invites his mother in law Pandari bai and brother-in-law Rajini. The groom is Rajini’s friend, who says that the boy is good. But Pandari Bai hesitates. She is a widow and does not want to come to such auspicious functions. But Thengai insists that she comes, as after a long time this is a good function in their house. Pandari Bai finally relents. [ ANOTHER SOCIALLY REFORM RELEVANT ISSUE RAISED BY DURAI ON THE LINES OF ‘ORU VEEDU – ORU ULAGAM’ ] 
  22. They start demanding dowry. A scooter , and some acres of land. Thengai openly says that it is his only sister, and he says that he would put some jewellery to the best of his ability, and he would get them a scooter. The groom’s father claims that his son is not a peon to agree for such a low amount of dowry. To which, the prospective groom’s mother relents back – ‘ Neenga etho seiveenga nu nenachu dhaan, ponnu kku vayasana dhanatha kooda perusu paduthama..” Before she completes, Rajini interrupts her ‘Nanganallur le Rendu Groundum , Maapillai Ku Oru Scooter vaangi kudutha, ponnukku vayasu kuranjidumo?‘. Pandari Bai folows up – ‘Naalu vaarthai ketalum, narukkunu ketai da‘. ; His mother responds – ‘Enna perusa ketuta.. Oru Scooter a mattum vaangindu, ipdi patta oru ponna, unga payan kattikuvana?‘. Pandari Bai replies that as per their customs, they cannot bring this girl into thier family, as she herself has given one [ Her dead daughter to Thengai], else Meenakshi ( Thengai’s sister) would have been her Maatuponnu ( daughter in law). The Groom’s father says that ‘Velai Pogatha Porullukku – Ipdi oru Saaka?‘, to which Rajini gets angry and asks them to leave. [ THE SOCIAL PROBLEM OF DOWRY IS BROUGHT ABOUT IN THIS SCENE.] 
  23. Rajni tells Thengai not to worry and promises to marry Meenakshi..  THE KAASI YAATHIRAI SEENU IS A Little Funny.. The Marriage happens successfully and everyone wishes the couple well..
  24. During the wedding night itself, she asks him various questions including about his salary. His wife takes a dig at Rajini’s practice of giving his salary to his mother, and taking a rupee everyday from her. But the dialogue does not take a serious undertone, and the wedding night is consumated.
  25. The next day Srikanth complains to his mother, that he could not sleep without his cot. His mother asks him to keep silent and wait for a few days, to which he retorts by saying that he’d rather stay in his friend’s bachelor room for a few days. since the cot ( possibly the only one in the house) had been shifted for Rajini’s wedding night. Rajini over hears the conversation and tells him that by the time he returns from college, the Cot will be put back in his room.
  26. As Rajini goes towards his room to remove the cot, a conversation ensues between him and his wife.
    1. Sundaresan – ‘Indha Kattil Fan ellamey Ramudhu. Nethu Namakku Kalyanam Aache nu kuduthurundha. Inakki..Naama..” ( before he completes the sentence)
    2. Meenakshi – “Kuduthuranum. ( sarcastically). Avalo thaane? Besh. Rombo Nanna Irukku. Kaal Anna sambathikadhavarukku indha aathu le Fan, Kattil Ella vasathiyum irukku. Indha aathukku kaakavey Sambathikiravarukku, Oru Paayum, Thalagoni dhaan sondham nu nenakiren. ” She digs him further – “Yena. Ippo Kattindu Irukeengala Veti.. Idhu Ungalukku Sondhama, illa idhuvum unga Thambikki sondhama?” Pandari Bai on the sewing machine over hears this and is worried, seeing where the conversation is heading toward.
    3. Sundaresan – “Look Meenu. Enna Insult Pannadha. Indha Aadambara Vaazhkaile Nambikai Ille. kedaikradha vechundu Santhoshama irukradhu dhaan nimmadhi ya tharum nu Amma adikadi solluvanga. Naa Atha dhaan follow pannitu irukken.”
  27. As the scene ends, Thengai enters the house. Pandari Bai enquires Thengai to find out the cost of a Fan and a double cot. Thengai enquires asking for whom, to which Pandari Bai says, for Sundaresan. Thengai feels guilty saying that he should have brought these things, but Sundaresan refused to accept them. As they converse, Rajini ( Sundaresan) enters and hears the dialogue. He refuses Thengai and says that henceforth, Thengai should not buy anything for Meenu. The day he is able to afford a Fan and a Double cot, he would buy it for her. Pandari Bai pleads and says that she is a young girl and may be she isn’t getting sleep without a fan. Rajini sternly refuses and says, that today it is okay. I can buy her a fan. Tomorrow, if she says, I can’t walk and need a car. Is it possible to buy a car? “Irukradha Vechu Sandhosha Padrava Thaan Manaivi’, he concludes. As Thengai tries to suggest him, Rajini bolts and says that his wife does not need anything, and if he insists on buying something, he tells him to buy not for his wife, but Thengai’s sister instead ( Both are the same)
  28. YGM asks his friend Srikanth, to find out whether Uma ( Jayachitra ) loves him or not and how to set her up , to which Srikanth replies – ‘Machan, Andha Thimir Pidichavala kattikita, Kooja thaan thookanum. Maanam Rosham Illama dhaan Vazhanum. Pesama, avala marandhitu’ . YGM – ‘ Enakku Maanam Rosham thevai Illa, Uma dhaan venum‘. Srikanth dictates and YGM writes a love letter.

  48. A client accidentally comes to Rajini’s seat, shocking Rajini, when Masilamani pulls him back. The client is scared. Masilamani assures him, that he will flex the new guy somehow, and get the client ( from whose he has taken a bribe), and get his job done.
  49. VKR Brings a bad news to the family. His Son-in-law ( Srikanth) has been barred to attend the exams due to insufficient attendance. Rajini feels not because Srikanth has lost a year of his studies, but a year of his mother’s hard work has been lost.
  50. Pandari bai is upset. She says that she has worked for this family for 28 years. Now, she wishes to go to Kasi. But people who go to Kasi should leave behind something that they really love – So, she says she is going to leave behind talking to her younger son. This shocks everyone except Srikant himself.

  53. Masilamani comes home. He tempts her by telling that even a peon in his office leads a better lifestyle than Sundaresan. Masilamani – “Kai Ezhutha Dhaan nu Sundaresan Nenachitu Irukaan. Adhu Neetavum Kathundana, Vazhkai le munnerilam. Sundaresan a maatha vendiyadhu unga poruppu” ( hand should be used for taking bribes as well.) By the time Masilamani finishes his conversation, Sundaresan arrives on the scene.
  54. Masilamani encourages him by saying that he is no longer a bachelor and a family man now. Sundaresan clearly tells that neither will he accept bribe nor will he be a part of it. He tells Masilamani to leave. He warns him that any further attempts, and he will complain about Masilamani to the higher officers. On the way, Masilamani says this to Meena – “Avan Pesinadha Keturupeenga nu Nenekiren. Thalai Anai Mandirathukku Neraya Sakthi Undu Nu Kelvipattiruken. Aprurom, Unga Saamarthyam.” [ WHAT A DIALOGUE?] ]
