    hindi serials were far more superior to tamil ones , either in content or techniques,
    though tamil serials caught them in content wise with the entry of greta filmakers like KB into TV, its only SUN tv's effort in mid 90s that put tamil TV on par with the hindi counterparts in techniques.

    the success of anna kolangal promted many drama producers venturing into tv serials with YG mahendra, mouli, kathadi ramamurthy etc, coming with their own.
    the doordarshan owned by government , so they wanted to give all prospective producers a chance to earn in the new medium. so they created this 13 week time span for a tele serial, that is a serial can run for 13 weekly epiodes(for three months).
    this was initially difficult, but with the increase in slots in weekdays and sundays, enabled many to come with many serials.

    so by mid 1985 we have 10 serilas in weekdays and a couple more in weekends.

    YG mahendra produced some brilliant serials(often remakes of his dramas), unlike sekar, his serials were serious ones with humour interspersed in between.
    one brilliant work is "silandhi valai-in which he plays the dual role of a poor textile shop salesman and ahardened criminal,
    the former with a family to support suffers for the misdeeds of the latter,

    i still remember the title song with only a guitar instrument,

    silandhi valai, silandhi valai
    sandharbam silarai maatti vaikkum
    valai thaan silandhi valai,
    adhil samarthyam kondu
    meendu varum kalai than sirandha kalai....

    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.
    one can never forget the adventures of steering the antenna ... when ur mom is trying to call u n say
    "inum konjam da ... inum konjam ... varudhu .... dei thallAdha ... pochu po...oru nimisham vandhudhu .... marupadiyum pinnadi suthu"

    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.

    another drma stalwart mouli tried his hand in tv serials by remaking one of his masterpiece FLIGHT 172, the most popular by any standard, considering the fact that its DVD release in 2006 met a success on par with tamil movie blockbusters.

    its the story of a group of people's experienc3e in chennai airport, after the delay of the presidigious madras-bombay flight 172.
    the passengers spend time together inthe airport lounge andinclude people of all walks of life , like a madhawaram party(headed by mouli-getting a chance to perform in a bombay sabha),
    a busy businessman, an actress, a english professor and even a murderer escaping law.

    the naive, and good hearted mouli and his party meddling with the co passengers and getting rebuff.
    one of his accociate payyalu(a look alike of muthu kkalai or vadivelu of earlier time) evoked enough laughter by his looks.

    the way mouli translates payalu' words in english is simply awesome,
    the way he pronounces stomach ache as styomachachey is simply superb.
