    Tamil TV serials-A nostalgic view

    thinking about the current state of tamil serials being telecast in various channels all day long, one can see a same pattern in all these serials and noone can blame the producers except the audience themselves.

    and thinking deeply about tamil serials, i also think how serials begun in tamil and how they went on and the advancements made in the mean time and also the degeneration into the present level.

    the year is 1984 and it signifies many things in my nostalgic trip down memory lane.

    in 1984 the first tamil Tv in india, chennai tholaikatchi started beaming colour broadcast of tamil programs,
    the year 1984 India celebrated silver jubilee of television in india.
    and in 1984 first star nite program in tamil was conducted by chennai doordarshan.(a memorable events particpated by all film stars and drama personalities)

    and most of all 1984 is the year in which my family actually bought a TV set as our own.

    although i have remembed the first movie i saw in Tv is porter ponnusamy- a thengai srinivasan movie(a porter in day and do-gooder by night).
    we watched in awe and amusement in whatever was shown in those days , like,
    kanmani poonga,
    kanbom karpom,
    chitrahaar,
    chitra mala,
    vayalum vaazhvum,
    ethiroli,
    munnottam,
    oliyum oliyum,
    tuesday weekly drama,
    sunday tamil movie, saturday hindi movie,
    regional movies in many days, and so on..

    also my brother mastered the art of turning antenna(remember? the three long aluminium sticks in our mottai madi)in specific directions made us watch the ceylon Tv called rupavahini -in which we watched ssome tamil programs.

    coming back to serials.....

    my brother and me have long debated on the first tamil tv serials,

    me saying its the pathinaalavadhu virundhali(14th guest) and him saying S V sekar's vanna kolangal.
    that debate continued for long, with each vehementally supporting his claim.

    14vadhu virundhali is crime/suspense thriller.
    the lead cast is headed by sowcar janaki and supported by noted drama personalities.
    conceived and directed by leo prabhu,
    the story is about the investigator probing the murder at a party thrown out by a rich dowager played by sowcar janaki, in her palatial bungalow(its actuaaly a small hosue-but as per story its a bungalow),
    the party attended by 14 guests, but the identity of only 13 is known,
    so the detective investigates the guests one by one,in the meantime many past things of sowcar's life is shown in flash back.

    how the detectives catches the mysterious 14 th guest is shown brilliantly in a neat screenplay.
    sowcar janaki performed exceptionally well.
    the serial was shown on tuesday(if i remember correctly)7 in the evening.

    vanna kolangal by SV sekar dram troupe was aired in sunday morning 8'o clock and evoked interests in one and all , particulary among children and youth for the simple story, light hearted comedy.

    SVS is a family man with a wife and son and gets into unwanted trouble by his antics and gets out safely using good humor and native(naive)intelligence.

    kutty padmini made debut as wife of sekar and supporting cast were from his dram troupe.

    each episode is a separate story and full of fun and entertainment.
    vanna kolangal remained in the minds of tv viers for along time,
    and its popularity is known by the fact that , when in 1993 sun tv started , they re telecast the serial with impressive TRPs.

    no sakthi , vanna kolangal is not brindha;s debut,
    its nam kudumbam in 1989/1990 in thurday nights in doordarshan 2 channel.
    in between sekar did a handful of serials , like thevai oru maapilai.

    when nam kudumbam was telecast the chennai boys fell madly for the young brindha(studiying in a city college at the time), we even started a rasigar mandram for her.
