TFM Take Off - The 1940s

Thread started by RAGHAVENDRA on 17th May 2011 11:00 AM

Tamil Film Music from the word go, started its glorious innings in the 1930s. In 1940s it took off rapidly and then no looking back. We can come across many masterpieces of legends in this decade. To start with a concert form featuring in the film Sabapathy.

Sabapathy was a great entertainer and hilarious moments throughout the film featuring T.R. Ramachandran and Kali N. Rathnam were rip roaring and appeal even today. But it also had very good songs and the music was arranged by the Saraswathi Stores Music Troupe. The concert by P.A. Periyanayaki is a notable one and herself giving an on-screen presence added to the value. Directed and produced by A.T. Krishnaswamy and Av. Meyyappan, the star cast included Padma as the heroine, who was famous as a model for Lux Soap, then K. Sarangapani, C.T. Rajakantham, Mangalam and others.

Sabapathy is an ever-green classic.
