Venturing successfully with the field of advertising, Papillon Communications exerts itself into tinsel town, but with a documentary on the life history of Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar. The documentary would be released on the special occasion of Thevar’s 100th anniversary.
Muthuramalinga Thevar born in the Pasumpon Village of Madurai District earnestly worked for the development of poor and downtrodden people in the society. He also had worked with Netaji Subash Chandra Bose for the freedom of the country.
Leading a rich and luxurious life, Thevar possessed 32 villages and for the exciting part, he had them to donate to the people who were suffering from poverty. Thevar was a rational leader and showed keen interest and concern for spiritualism and this is something that none haven’t got to know about this. You know why it was a hidden truth in all the past? For a simple reason that he was Tamilian for only freedom fighters of North India were promoted…
But Papilon communication takes delight in bringing out the hidden past to the light of world. The duration is of 75mins that includes well researched materials and 3D technology has been used for the scenes where no video footage is available….
The documentary has been filmed extensively at several places including Madurai, Ramanathapuram, Tiruchy, Uraiyur, Pudhukottai, Thanjavur, Aaduthurai, Vellore, Kallupatti, and Pulichikulam where Thevar had lived and visited. The Muthukulathur incident which is recorded in history has also been filmed without any deviation from the truth. The Aimuga Vinayagar temple built and consecrated by Thevar is also featured in the documentary. The documentary features three songs penned by Yugabharathi. The music has been scored by Vijay Antony and actor Vagai Chandrasekar has lent his voice for narration.
Piece of fantabulous research has been studied by M P Abraham Lincoln who has served as a correspondent for several years with various dailies including Daily Thanthi, Dhina Bhoomi, Kathiravan, Dhinamalar, Dinakaran and Tamilmurasu. Getting facts well-researched, Abraham has compiled a well-designed script and direction of the documentary.
The documentary is based on solid research backed by sufficient evidence for all the incidents narrated.
