    Dear Swarup and friends,
    You can without hesitation include films of 30s here. The title is suggestive as its take off is arrived for discussion.

    MANY OF YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD OF THE FILM "TOOFAN QUEEN" mentioned in the book of Film News Ananthan. Here is a rare chance to see it with audience. VINTAGE HERITAGE is screening this film as detailed below. Make use of it.

    விமர்சனங்களுக்கு அப்பாற்பட்ட இறைவன் நடிகர் திலகம்.. கடலின் ஆழத்தை அளந்து விடலாம். நடிகர் திலகத்தின் செல்வாக்கை அளக்க முடியாது... அது பயனளிக்கும் போது தான் அதன் ஆழம் புரியும்....

    Yes, the above seems to be from Ashok Kumar 1941. Lyrics here

    Randor Guy's review http://www.hindu.com/cp/2008/01/25/s...2550401600.htm
    An old thread in The Hub about MKT. I do not know either Tamil or Hindi and may be making some mistakes. I saw some Tamil and Hindi movies in the forties and fifties possibly starting with Rajamukti and Ratan. So there is some exposure and I still listen to some of these songs.

    There is an inersting article by Stephen Putnam Hughes "What is Tamil about Tamil Cinema?", in South Asian Popular Culture, vol.8, no.3. October 2010,213-219 discussing the early days of Tamil Cinema. The early influences of the North where films were made to later politics. An example of early influences is this song from Chintamani 1937

    which seems similar to Shanta Apte song from Amar Jyoti 1936

    Putnam's article is worth a read I think. I am not sure whether iot is freely available. I have a copy and if anybody is interested, I can send iot by e-mail. My e-mail address
