    Devotional Films of the 1960s and 1970s

    There was real spirituality in the films of the 1960s and early 70s unlike those of the 80s, which made use of amateur technology and turned out to be unwittingly funny, if not disgraceful.
    Let us discuss the historic devotional films of the 1960s.

    When you speak of devotional films and the 1960s, the first name that comes to mind is Sivaji Ganesan.
    If Lord Siva were to appear on earth, he would find competition in Sivaji!

    Thiruvilaiyadal - as Lord Siva
    Karnan
    Saraswathy Sabatham - as Naradhar and poet
    Thirmaal Perumai - as Azhvaars
    Thiruvarutselvar
    Kandhan Karunai
    Raja Raja Cholan

    2 classics by AP Nagarajan tops the chart
    1. Thiruvilayadal

    2. Saraswathi sabatham

    of course lot of films followed it like thiruvarutchelvar, thirumal perumai etc ..

    the professionalism, the small small nuances and minute things they took care of be it photography, the way sets were done all mind blowing

    watch saraswathi sabatham here


    watch thiruvilayadal here

    For non-spiritual types like me (who likes spirits), I think good performance and very strong script are the draws. I can't watch any of these without NT. NT is essential ingredient. Saraswathy Sabatham for me is a must revisit every few months. Then, of course, Thiruvilayadal.
