Song: ‘Ondre Kulam Endru Paaduvom’
Movie: Pallandu Vaazhga
Singer: KJ Yesudas
Music: KV Mahadevan
On MGR’s 101st birth anniversary, a song in which he preaches religion to a bunch of convicts. The period in which the movie Pallandu Vaazhga released – 1975 – was when MGR was mobilizing support for his new party, the AIADMK, through his films. He’d just split from the Karunanidhi-led DMK. “Ondre Kulam Endru Paaduvom,” which essentially says ‘God is One,’ was written by Pulamaipithan.
