    Is it...?.உங்கள் வீட்டில் மூன்று ரசிகர் மன்றம் இருந்ததா?. ஆச்சரியம்தான் . வழக்கமாக மூத்த தலைமுறையினர் நடிகர்திலகத்தின் ரசிகர்களாகவும், இளைய தலைமுறை எம்.ஜி.ஆர். அபிமானிகளாகவும் இருப்பார்கள். ஆனால் உங்க வீட்டில் உல்டாவாக இருந்திருக்கிறது. உங்க அம்மா ஜெய்சங்கரின் அபிமானி என்பதில் சந்தோஷம், ஆனால் இவற்றைப்படிக்க அவர்களால் முடியவில்லையே என்பதில் மிகுந்த வருத்தம்.

    எங்கள் வீட்டில் அப்படியில்லை. Top to Bottom நடிகர்திலகத்தின் ரசிகர்கள்தான். அப்பா, அம்மா, கணவர், நான். இதெல்லாம் ஆச்சரியமில்லை, இன்றைய இளைய தலைமுறையைச்சேர்ந்த என்னுடைய 13 வயது மகனுக்குக்கூட 'சிவாஜி அங்கிள்' படம்தான் பிடிக்கிறது.

    சகோதரி சாரதா அவர்களுக்கு எமது கனிவான நன்றிகள் !

    எம்மால் இயன்ற , எமக்குத் தெரிந்த தகவல்களை இத்திரியில் பதிக்க சித்தமாயிருக்கிறேன் !!

    மக்கள் கலைஞர் ஜெய்சங்கர் அவர்களின் முதல் திரைப்படமான இரவும் பகலும் 14.1.1965 , பொங்கல் வெளியீடாக , வெள்ளித்திரையில் வலம் வந்தது. சென்னையில் கெயிட்டி, பிரபாத், சரஸ்வதி ஆகிய 3 திரையரங்குகளிலும் மற்றும் தென்னகமெங்கும் வெளியானது. கணிசமான திரையரங்குகளில் 8 வாரங்கள் (56 நாட்கள்) ஓடி ஒரு நல்ல வெற்றிப்படம் என்கின்ற அந்தஸ்தைப் பெற்றது.

    "இரவும்" , "பகலும்" மூலம் "ஆக்ஷனும்" , "ஆக்டிங்கும்" கலந்த ஒரு புதுமை ஹீரோவாக தமிழ் திரைக்கு ஒரு புத்துணர்ச்சியை ஊட்டினார் ஜெய்சங்கர் என்றால் அது மிகையன்று.

    இரவும் பகலும் வெளியான அதே பொங்கலன்று தான் , நடிகர் திலகத்தின் பழநி திரைப்படமும் , மக்கள் திலகத்தின் மெகா ஹிட் படமான எங்க வீட்டுப் பிள்ளை திரைப்படமும் வெளியானது என்பதும் இங்கே குறிப்பிடப்பட வேண்டிய ஒன்று.

    அன்புடன்,
    பம்மலார்.

    சாரதா,

    ஜெய் பற்றி பலருக்கும் தெரியாத விஷயங்களை வெளிப்படுத்தியிருக்கிறீர்கள். ஜெய் ரசிகர் மன்ற கொடி பற்றிய உங்கள் தகவல்களை குறிப்பிடுகிறேன். மேலும் இது போன்ற அரிய தகவல்கள் வரும் என நம்புகிறேன்.

    நீங்கள் சொன்ன இரண்டு விஷயங்களை பற்றிய அடிஷனல் செய்திகள். ஜெய், எம்.ஜி.ஆரோடு இணைந்து நடிக்கவில்லை என்பது உண்மைதான். ஆனால் ஒரு படத்தில் அவர்கள் இணைந்தார்கள். ஆன் மிலோ சஜ்னா (?) ஹிந்தி படம் தமிழில் ஒரு தாய் மக்கள் என்ற பெயரில் ரீமேக் செய்யப்பட்டது. இரண்டாவது கதாநாயகனாக ஜெய் ஒப்பந்தம் செய்யப்பட்டார். முதல் நாள் படப்பிடிப்பு "பாடினாள் ஒரு பாட்டு" காட்சியோடு தொடங்கியது. ஆனால் காலையில் ஆரம்பிக்க வேண்டிய படப்பிடிப்பு மாலையில் தான் தொடங்கியது. எம்.ஜி.ஆர் படங்களைப் பொறுத்தவரை அவர் மாலையிலும் இரவிலும்தான் படப்பிடிப்பை வைத்துக் கொள்வார். ஆனால் ஜெய்க்கு அந்த நடைமுறை ஒத்து வரவில்லை. எனவே அவரே வாங்கிய அட்வான்சை திருப்பிக் கொடுத்து விட்டு விலகிக் கொண்டார். பிறகு அந்த வேடத்தில் முத்துராமன் நடித்தது அனைவருக்கும் தெரியும். இந்த் தகவலை ஜெய்யே ஒரு முறை பேட்டியில் குறிப்பிட்டிருந்தார்.

    இரண்டாவது காயத்ரி - முரட்டுக் காளை சம்பந்தப்பட்டது. காயத்ரி வெளியானது 1977 -ம் வருடம் அக்டோபர் மாதம் 7-ம் தேதி. [நாம் பிறந்த மண்ணும் அன்று தான் வெளியானது]. அப்போது ஜெய் ஹீரோ -ரஜினி ஆன்டி ஹீரோ - வில்லன். ஆனால் ஜெய் அந்த படத்தில் கிட்டத்தட்ட ஒரு கெஸ்ட் ரோல் மாதிரி தான் பண்ணியிருப்பார். முரட்டுக் காளை வெளியானது -1980 -ம் வருடம் டிசம்பர் மாதம் 20-ம் தேதி. எனவே காயத்ரிக்கும் முரட்டுக் காளைக்கும் எந்த சம்மந்தமும் இல்லை.

    அன்புடன்

    Nice wrting, saradha. Enjoyed it ver much. My two cents about Panjavarnakili. I saw this film in DD as I was 13 or 14 (79,80). Even though I was fascinated by the songs particularly Thamizhukkum amudhenru per and azhagan muruganidam aasai vaiththen. (The prelude of this song is simply superb. even today it is un beatable. simply the voice of suseela ammaa... for this song is absolutely great).

    Coming to the prt of jai, he acted in a double role in this film. Hero and villain. I really resent that jai didn´t pursue in these type of roles. He remained me of Marudhu ( Bale Pandiya fame) in his negative role.

    Altogether a great film, superb songs and very good artists.

    some how i missed this thread. My Second brother was a great fan of Jai. In fact , during early 70's he written one story with dialogue (only three characters in that story) and sent to Jai for his approval and his interest in films. But Jai immediatly replied with his photo with signature and return the script and advised my brother to concentrate on studies. After that he stopped writing. he never missed Jai movies. Whenever I comes to B'lore, my brother used to see Jai.

    After I shifted to B'lore (during 80's) my first job was in Jai Enterprises (I got this job through my brother only) . this firm was owned and financed by none other than Jai and run by his two brothers. I met only Jai's brothers and never met this Genius Man Jai.

    One of the most popular and successful Tamil cinema stars of 1960s and later in many action-oriented, highly enjoyable, thrilling entertainers was Jai Shankar.? It is indeed regrettable that inspite of his many achievements and very rare qualities hardly seen in a dog- eat-its-own-tail world, he has been sidelined by not only the Tamil movie world to which he contributed so much for so little in return and also the mass media.

    Above all he was an outstandingly excellent human being with a heart overflowing with the milk of human kindness and he did many good Samaritan-kind deeds without seeking publicity or trying to build up his image.

    Subramaniam Shankar, to give his original name, was born on July 12, 1938 with his father being a judicial magistrate.?? He was a typical Mylaporean of the bygone decades going to the famous PS High School and then Vivekananda College, where he did his Honours degree.? Following the footsteps of his father he studied Law but gave it up after a year because of his interests in fine arts like theatre.

    Bitten by the drama bug, he joined Cho's Viveka Fine Arts, which consisted mostly of Mylaporeans where he did insignificantly small roles.? Obviously not happy he moved out and the break came with Koothabiran's Kalki Fine Arts where he made a mark playing a lead role in Kalki's 'Amara Thaara'.

    Expectedly he tried to break into films but found that it was not that easy.? He was rejected by many producers who thought his eyes were too small for a movie hero.? Somewhat disappointed he took up a job with the Simpson and Company group and was posted in Delhi where he worked for sometime.? But the movie bug continued to grow inside him and he came back to Madras where he again? acted on stage.? An excellent performance in a historical play brought him to the attention of the adventurous film producer from Trivandrum, Joseph Thaliath Junior (incidentally he was also the son of a judge) and the break came in Thaliath's 1965 production "Iravum Pagalum" in which he was christened Jai Shankar.? The low budget movie produced by Citadel Productions and directed by Thaliath JR. had a pretty new face, T. K. S. Vasantha.? The tautly told thriller turned out to be a surprise package scoring well at the box office.? A new slim intensely active movie star named Jai Shankar was born and he never looked back.

    The same year saw him climbing the famed tree higher with another hit,? an AVM production "Kuzhandaiyum Deivamum" inspired by the Walt Disney hit "Parent Trap" with Jamuna as the female lead and Kutty Padmini playing a double role.

    His charming manners, total absence of starry airs and ability to get on with all kinds of people endeared him to the movie world.? Consequently he began to get more films.? "Panjavarna Kili" directed by editor-turned-filmmaker K. Shankar and written by Valampuri Somanathan with Jai and K. R. Vijaya in lead roles was again a hit.

    Rama Sundaram, T. R. Sundaram's son who took up production under the family banner Modern Theatres cast him in a number of films.? Ramappa (as he was affectionately known) was an engineering graduate and the two men of education and culture became close friends and found it easy to work together.? It resulted in Jai working in a number of interestingly narrated thrillers, "Iru Vallavargal" (1966)… "Vallavan Oruvan" (1966)… "Kaadalithaal Podhuma" (1967)… "Naangu Killadigal" (1969, a Modern Theatres production)… "CID Shankar" (1970)… "Karundhel Kannaayiram" (1972)… and others.?

    The mention-worthy and hit films of Jai are too many and the long list includes "Pattanathil Bootham" (1967, directed by editor turned noted multilingual filmmaker M. V. Raman and written by Javert Seetharaman, it was a successful rehash of the Hollywood movie "The Brass Bottle".? It had K. R. Vijaya in the female lead and her appearance in a swimsuit thrilled moviegoers!)… "Nilagiri Express" (1968, written by Cho, it was a well done suspense thriller with Vijayanirmala the female lead.? Later this film was remade in Malayalam and other languages)… "Jeevanamsam" (1968, written and directed by Malliam Rajagopal, the film had besides Jai and Vijayakumari, a pretty and talented newcomer named Lakshmi (daughter of celebrated filmmaker of yester decades Y. V. Rao and actress Kumari Rukmini) who would go places as multilingual star actress and filmmaker…? "Nil-Gavani-Kaadhali" (1969, directed by C. V. Rajendran and written by Chitralaya Gopu, the film had Jai, pretty dancer L. Vijayalakshmi and multilingual star Bharathi.? A suspense thriller it had catchy music by M. S. Viswanathan and a couple of songs became hits)… "Poovaa Thalaiya" (1969, produced by politician film producer Rama Aranganal and written and directed by K. Balachandar, the film was an excellent domestic comedy of manners with Gemini Ganesh, Vennira Aadai Nirmala and Jai in a lead role with good music by M. S. Viswanathan)… "Nootruku Nooru" (1971, written and directed by K. Balachandar and inspired by a foreign movie, it had Lakshmi with Jai and proved successful)… "Ganga" (1972, a 'curry' western with Jai playing a cowboy hero, directed by noted cinematographer Karnan who also produced the film. Jai made similar westerns for Karnan like "Jambu",
    "Jagamma" (1972), "Engal Paattan Sotthu" (1975), "Orey Thanthai" (1976) and others.

    As a person he had such concern for others in genuine distress.? When producers gave cheques which came back like homing pigeons from the bank he never took any legal action.? Instead he preserved all the colourful cheques as mementoes.? (Another person of similar attitude was famed Tamil film comedian and character 'Thengai' Srinivasan who made a picturesque album of all the bounced cheques which he showed to his friends with glee!)

    During 1976 a famous unit manufacturing silk sarees and similar goods organised a star show? in Erode and had invited a new star-actress on the horizon who made a splash in a musical hit which established Ilayaraja right on top.? She had been fixed to 'grace' the occasion by a noted Tamil scholar, writer and film producer.? Much to his shock she informed him in the last moment? that she would not be coming!? With his heart hammering hard against his ribs, the Tamil film producer took the train to the venue and travelling on the same train was Jai Shankar to whom he explained his plight and acute embarrassment.? Jai promised to be present at the show from Salem where he was shooting in about an hour or so.? True to his word he drove along with Asokan and other stars in the film and the restless crowds at the venue went mad seeing Jai coming up.? That was the man.

    A friend wanted to purchase a tract of land owned by Jai Shankar and negotiated with him about the price and other factors.? Jai told the would be purchaser that the land had not yet been registered in his name due to some problems but he was sure of getting it eased out and offered to sell the land subject to that condition.? The buyer who knew Jai agreed and when the dispute was settled and when the land was registered in Jai's name, promptly he gave it to the buyer without a second thought or word.? That was Jai Shankar.

    He was also a man of principles to which he stuck hell or high water.? One of his well wishers suggested that he should call on MGR and pay his respects to him, but Jai did not agree and said that he had no reason to do so though he had high respect and regard for the iconic superstar.

    Successful stars come and go, fade in and fade out but great human beings like Jai Shankar are hard to find today especially in the phony world of lens and lights…

    Memorable tamil movies-Iravum Pagalum(1965)

    STAR CAST:

    Jaishankar (debut)???? TKS Vasantha???? Asokan???? Kanthimathi???? Pandari Bai

    Joseph Thaliath Junior, son of a high ranking Travancore judicial
    officer bitten by the movie bug relocated to Madras to make movies.
    To learn the ropes he worked as assistant director under veterans
    under pioneers like S. Soundararajan (Tamil Nadu Talkies) and others
    before he joined hands with noted art director, filmmaker and studio
    owner F. Nagoor and promoted a production company Citadel Films.? Why
    Citadel?? Thereby hangs a tale.? His favourite novel was A. J. Cronin
    classic "The Citadel" which he wanted to film in Tamil.? A story of
    the medical profession in London, Nagoor told his young friend that
    such subjects in those days were risky, especially for the maiden
    attempt and suggested a crime thriller which became "Iravum Pagalum".
    Fond of the book Thaliath named his company after the book and later
    when he built his studio in Kilpauk he called it Citadel Studios. The
    studio has vanished but today only the cement-name board? 'CITADEL'
    remains.

    Planning a low budget movie he decided to cast new faces and looking
    around he found a handsome, slim young man from theatre, Subramaniam
    Shankar whom he cast as hero giving him the new name Jaishankar!

    One of the most popular and successful Tamil Cinema stars of 1960s and
    later in many action-oriented, highly enjoyable, thrilling
    entertainers was Jai Shankar.? It is indeed regrettable that in spite
    of his many achievements and very rare qualities hardly seen in a dog-
    eat-its-own-tail world, he has been sidelined by not only the Tamil
    movie world to which he contributed so much for so little in return
    and also the mass media.

    Above all he was an outstandingly excellent human being with a heart
    overflowing with the milk of human kindness and he did many good
    Samaritan-kind deeds without seeking publicity or trying to build up
    his image.

    Bitten by the drama bug, he joined Cho's Viveka Fine Arts, which
    consisted mostly of Mylaporeans where he did insignificantly small
    roles.? Obviously not happy he moved out and the break came with
    Koothabiran's Kalki Fine Arts where he made a mark playing a lead role
    in Kalki's 'Amara Thaara'.

    easy.? He was rejected by many producers who thought his eyes were too
    small for a movie hero.? Somewhat disappointed he took up a job with
    the Simpson and Company group and was posted in Delhi where he worked
    for sometime.? But the movie bug continued to grow inside him and he
    came back to Madras where he again? acted on stage.? An excellent

    (incidentally he was also the son of a judge) and the break came in
    Thaliath's? "Iravum Pagalum" in which he was christened Jaishankar.
    The low budget movie produced by Citadel Productions . had a pretty
    new face, TKS. Vasantha.

    ?The tautly told thriller turned out to be a surprise package scoring
    well at the box office.? A new slim intensely active movie star named
    Jaishankar was born and he never looked back…

    It also had melodious music (T. R. Papa)? with some songs? 'Iravu
    varum…' and 'Ullathin kadhuvugal….' becoming hits.
