All Time Great Hit from 1965 - MGR Hits

Aayirathil Oruvan is a Tamil movie starring M. G. Ramachandran and Jayalalitha in the lead roles. The film was released in 1965. The last song "Atho Antha Paravai" (Live like that bird) of the movie was a great creation which was portrayed brilliantly by MS Viswanathan and B.R. Panthulu. This is a western style of song and still remembered by tamil music lovers.

The movie was inspired from a swashbuckling Errol Flynn starrer, Captain Blood (1935 film) made by First National Pictures and Warner Brothers. M.G. Ramachandran was a huge fan of Errol Flynn and had also acted in the movie 'Malai Kallan' which was inspired from Errol Flynn's version of 'Robin Hood'. (Courtesy: Wikepedia)
