Devar Films and M.G.R. was a force to reckon with at Tamil Box-Office. They apparently made 16 films with “Makkal Thilagam” in the lead. “Thaiku PinTharam”, their first film with “Puratchi Thalaivar” made so much money that the producers built a studio with the proceeds. The village-back drop movie was dubbed into Telugu as “Mathru Sapatham”.
