Tollywood Legend Savitri’s Troubled Marriage with Rekha’s Father Gemini Ganesan; Didn’t Bother Her Children

Published

on

Mahanati Malayalam Movie

The recently released Telugu-Tamil bio-pic Mahanati enlivening the turbulent beset wild existence of the incredible on-screen character Savitri has gone into a few profoundly dubious parts of her life including her (losing) fight with the jug and her grieved marriage with early showing icon Gemini Ganesan, performing artist Rekha’s dad (from his other spouse).

Truth be told, when the important performing artists read the content their first inquiry was, “Would this film be allowed to be made?” Says the film’s young extremely focused producer Priya Dutt whose husband Ashwin Nag has directed Mahanati, “We were aware of what we had set out to do. The actors were all keen to be part of the project in big or small roles. It didn’t matter. They just wanted the story of Savitri Amma to be known to coming generations. The problem was, how do we get around the darker aspects of her life? The answer was simple. We didn’t get around the problematic aspects of her life. We tackled them headlong.”

The principal move to maintain a strategic distance from future offensive move was to make Savitri’s family into certainty. Says Priyanka Dutt, “We hid nothing. We didn’t try to make the film secretly or try to keep secrets from the family. We took Savitriji and Gemini Sir’s two children Vijaya Chamundi and Satheesh into confidence. They were told everything. I think the mistake that bio-pics make is to withhold information. This makes the people involved feel betrayed when the truth comes out. We hid nothing from Vijaya and Satheesh.” In truth Savitri and Gemini Ganesan’s youngsters were on the sets on a few events.

Recalls Priyanka, “Vijaya M’aam was specially supportive. She knew we were going to show her mother’s battle with alcoholism. She knew we would show her parents’ marriage to be far from perfect. And she was fine with it. I think she felt it was time her amazing mother’s story was told in the right perspective. There have been several books on Savitri Amma’s life. But none has done full justice to her. Vijaya M’aam hoped Mahanati would show her mother to be the formidable figure of Telugu and Tamil cinema who re-wrote the rules of the patriarchal film industry by becoming the first female superstar.”

Hence Savitri lost her fame and in this way started her furious fight with liquor abuse and secrecy. Says Priyanka, “There are many parallels between Savitri Amma’s and Meena Kumariji’s life. In fact the two were very good friends in real life. They both died around the age of 40.The difference was in the career span. Meenaji kept working till the end. Savitri Amma stopped working for many years before her death. The period between her death and this film is very long. That stretch had to be covered so that current generations would know what Savitri Amma had achieved.”

Fortunately for the group the greatest of performing artists approached to play cameo parts in Mahanati.

Says Priyanka Dutta, “I think the project had Savitri Amma’s blessings. Some divine force was definitely watching over us. There were uncanny incidents and coincidences during the shooting that made us feel we were being guided into doing the right thing. I remember Vijaya M’aam was on the sets the day we shot Savitri Amma’s home accidently catching fire. Vijaya M’aam looked at the chandelier on the sets and exclaimed, ‘How did you all know my parents had a chandelier exactly like that in her home?’ We didn’t know. We just did what came into our hearts. We wanted the world to know the woman behind the Savitri image. I think we achieved that.”

We simply did what came into our souls. We needed the world to know the lady behind the Savitri picture. I think we accomplished that.”

Maniyarayile Ashokan Review

A young man or woman reaching the age of marriage. Obstacles they face in getting married. The love, the dream, the frustration of love that comes into it, or the sadness of boredom. Malayalam cinema has seen all this in different contexts and different story contexts. Here, too, there is a protagonist in such a labyrinth; Ashok. The Thiruvonam release ‘Asokan in Maniyara’ has reached the screens of the audience by portraying Ashok’s dreams of a wife spreading love at the front door and finally reaching there.

Despite having a government job and a good family background, Ashok’s wedding dreams are dimmed by a small issue that has been on the agenda since Dineshan. His height and beauty create a sense of inferiority in Ashoka. It’s clear that he has not even had a girlfriend since school days. Even when a marriage proposal fails, Ashoka is disturbed by the situation where he accidentally hears what the girl who went to see the girl says.

Maniyarayile Ashokan Review

Throughout the film, Gregory plays the role of Ashoka, who puts so much pain inside, gathers close friends, and puts his pain into words and presents it to his parents. Gregory plays the lead role for whatever reason. Not enough of all this, the film enters a twist where Ashoka has to cross another big hurdle.

Ashoka is also a representative of individuals whose marriage may or may not be delayed because others often inflate trivial matters. He has been dealing with a part of Ashoka’s crisis in movies, short films and social media for years with humor. The film, directed by Shamsu Saiba and co-produced by Dulquer Salman and Gregory, is a reminder that it is never a joke from the point of view of the person experiencing the condition.

In the story set in a rural setting, Ashoka himself is the active character who shines on the screen from beginning to end. Shine is played by Tom Chacko, Krishna Shankar, who plays Ashok’s friends, and Vijayaraghavan, who plays his parents, and Sreelakshmi. ‘Asokan in Maniyara’ does not follow the stereotype of being the only major heroine. Anupama Parameswaran, Shritha Sivadas and Nayana Elsa are the heroines of the movie. Guest roles include Anu Sithara, Onima Kashyap and Sunny Wayne.

Maniyarayile Ashokan Rating: 8/10

Sufiyum Sujathayum Review

Learning Malayalam as a language is very difficult. I think we are hidden behind language, we don’t look at people when we talk. But when you don’t have a language, you have to look into the eyes of individuals. That person will see exactly what you really think and what you have in mind. I think honesty is a beautiful thing. I am a personification of true love and innocence, ”
