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.”

Director Siddique’s movies that have worked have always had an equal mix of humour, action and sentiments. In his latest film, however, the director, who has also scripted the film has dropped the humour element in favour of more action and a patience-testing plot to pass off as a thriller. The movie’s protagonist 40-year-old Sachidanandan (Mohanlal) is just released from prison after serving a double life sentence for killing a police officer at a juvenile home. His family, however, welcomes him with open arms and within the first 30 minutes, he reveals to them that he wasn’t just serving time the past 24 years. To up the suspense quotient, Siddique has also given his protagonist a special skill that aids him in the film’s multiple action scenes that include two in the dark and one smack in the middle of a dustbowl.

Sachidanandan’s past, however, soon catches up to him and his family, and forcing him to return to the ways he didn’t want to. In the middle of all this is a police officer Vedantham IPS (Arbaaz Khan) who is on the hunt for an elusive drug boss Edwin Moses. How Sachidanandan’s, Vedantham’s and Moses’ paths cross is what the film is about, but Siddique opts to use so many tropes and misdirection techniques to get there that by the end of it, the audience could hardly care who Moses is and what his ultimate aim is. Mohanlal as Sachidanandan is dour-faced for most of the film, except for the comic scenes where he tries to observe the niceties after his life in prison. In fact, more of these scenes could have elevated the film. Arbaaz as Vedantham IPS has a powerful presence, but is underused. His parallel story seems to get lost in the mess that Sachidanandan and friends get entangled in, and the police officer becomes an apologetic footnote, at best.

The film’s leading ladies Mirnaa, Honey Rose and Gadha do their parts well in what limited scenes they have. Anoop Menon and Sarjano Khalid as Sachidanandan’s brothers Vishnu and Manu, respectively, perform decently. The comedy track from Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Tini Tom and Irshad fall flat, however. Deepak Dev’s songs in the film add a bit of energy that the film, which is 164 minutes long, desperately needed. If Siddique could have kept the run-time in check and maybe stopped short of building Sachidanandan as a superhero, the movie could have passed as a decent watch.

Pattas Review

Pattas is a film starring Dhanush, Sneha, and Mehrin Birzada. The film is produced by Satyajothi Films and directed by Durai Senthil Kumar. Sneha is shocked when she realistically meets Dhanush at the Nilean Kickboxing Academy run by Naveen Chandra. Who are the two? Pattas is the film that tells Naveen Chandra and their relationship.

Dhanush has two roles as Patas, Shakti and Dravia Perumal. The age difference between the two characters, including the body language, has been brought to the fore by his realistic performances. Sneha as a virgin. She has effectively played the role of a beloved woman and an affectionate mother who avenges the man who killed her husband.

Pattas Review

Pattas Review

Naveen Chandra as the villain. The villain who is a strong match is intimidating. Mehrin Birzada has contributed greatly to the film’s romantic episodes. KPY Satish makes the first half interesting with his innate dialogue delivery. Naser, Munishkant, and Manopala have played their part. 

The Vivek-Mervin alliance and the background music was a great strength for the film. Cinematographer Om Prakash has a great story that takes place in two different periods. The manner in which the art of slavery is handled and the way it was handled in the screenplay made the film interesting. The romance scenes in the previous half weren’t that impressive. This pattas draw attention to the way the Tamil arts and cultures are described as commercial cinema.
