MGR Hits - Maanicka Theril

This song is an evergreen hit from the MGR Jayalalitha starrer Thedivantha Maapillai. This movie was released in 1970 and was directed by P R Panthulu. Music is by M S Viswanathan and lyrics by Kannadasan. The song has been sung by TMS and P Susheela (Jayalathitha had preferred L R Easwari's voice in several movies of hers) A brief one line synopsis of the movie is as follows.  MGR sets out to seek his father’s murderer and ends up falling in love with the murderer’s daughter played by Jayalalitha. This is a dream sequence song featuring MGR and Jayalalitha who had been noted for her own confident style of acting. Both MGR and Jaylalitha had paired to give some  great hits of that period. There was a time during which Jayalalitha had acted exclusively in MGR movies. Eventually she had gone on to do several movies with Sivaji and other leading actors of that period Muthuraman, Jaishankar, Ravichandran and others.
