MGR - Background

I created this site to post MGR's songs from Tamil movies which has motivational and philosophical value. I won't be including any of his romance or love songs.

A little background about MGR :

Maruthur Gopalan Ramachandran (January 17, 1917 – December 24, 1987), popularly known by his initials MGR, was an Indian(Tamil) film actor, producer and politician.

He made his film debut in the 1936 Tamil film Sathi Leelavathi in a supporting role. In the late 1940s he graduated to leading roles and for the next three decades dominated the Tamil film industry. He became a member of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) political party and rose rapidly through its ranks. He successfully used his popularity as a film hero to build a large political base. In 1972, he left the DMK to form his own party the Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (ADMK). In 1977 he became the chief minister of Tamil Nadu - the first film actor in India to become the chief minister of a state. He remained as chief minister till his death in 1987.

In Tamil Nadu, he has a reputation for philanthropism and is considered to be one of the greatest political leaders and actors of the state. He is idolized by his followers as Puratchi Thalaivar. MGR was posthumously honoured with the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award.
