Anil Nedumangad’s note: When Mohanlal turns 60, MG College is a memoir of life. Forty years ago (1979), little did you know that the ‘doll’ in the middle would make history. This magazine page tells many stories. Kavalam Sreekumar was the first in the top row and the star of that college was Kavalam Sreekumar. The gentle form of becoming a worshiper of youth, singing only the songs of his own style. Lal was the second runner up in the college arts festival drama competition.
The next year, the flowers were released in the snow. Lal BCom completes its third year in the film’s success. The college day celebration is back with a star cast. The old drama made its debut. Kuttakam Kuttan Pillai as the protagonist. Revathi Kalamandir Suresh Kumar along with producer Sanal Kumar played an important role in the drama.
The Commerce Department is located in a small two storied building under the hill at the rear, away from the main building of MG College. Commerce block was called Mutta College for the joke. Commerce Block was a mainstay of the block, since there was a separate route to the Commerce Block from Cotton Pipe, the back door of the MG College. Naturally, it became Lal’s journey too.
The commerce block has the story of a celebrity. Actor Jagadeesh comes here as a teacher. Priyadarshan’s Ottaram Ammavar Ariyarum will be seen in the movie. It should also be remembered that Gopalakrishnan Nair was the principal at the time. A teacher who stood with actors like Lal. He also became involved in college drama. Being a principal is a treat to come with children to rehearsal. It was Jagadeesh who found the path. Jagadeesh helped to study the dialogue in the Principal’s room. Being a teacher, Jagadeesh can walk into the principal’s room.
More than four decades later, the college grandmother is proud of herself – as every Malayalee has chested her super star son.
