Greatest Actor Ever! - The Starting Point! By Far the Best Debut Performance of Tamil Cinema!

This is a song from the movie Paraasakthi, the debut movie of Sivaji Ganesan the greatest actor the world has ever seen or will ever see! Parasakthi is a 1952 Tamil film starring Sivaji Ganesan, Pandari Bai, S. S. Rajendran, S. V. Sahasranamam, Sriranjani and others. It was directed by R. Krishnan and S. Panju (Krishnan - Panju) and produced by AVM. The film Parasakthi was released on Deepavali Day in the year 1952, after months of shooting and preparations.The story and dialogues written by M Karunanidhi is based on the tale of three brothers, Chandrasekaran (Sahasranamam), Gnanasekaran (S. S. Rajendran) and Gunasekaran (Sivaji Ganesan) who settle down in Burma during the Second World War. The youngest Gunasekaran gets the opportunity to visit India for the marriage of their younger sister Kalyani (Sriranjani) but as fate would have it, he gets stranded at sea due to intense Japanese bombardment of Burmese ports. The story evolves around the life of the three brothers and sister as they lead their own separate lives under different circumstances and how they eventually unite in the end. Sivaji performs with great style and class like a seasoned veteran without a mere hint of hesitation that is normally seen in actors in their debut performances. This particular song has been sung by C S Jayaraman, Lyrics by Udumalai Narayana Kavi and Music by R Sudarsanam. You can see the spark in Sivaji and his dominating screen presence even though this is his debut movie. Several songs written by legendary lyricists such as Ku Ma Balasubramaniam, Papanasam Sivan, Udumalai Narayana Kavi and Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram of the era prior to Kannadasan are truly timeless classics.
