Hat trick

Hi, this is to tell u that Parasakthi has passed its GA review. Also, it is my third consecutive GA nomination after Karnan and Thuppakki. Kailash29792 (talk) 04:22, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Congrats :) Wish to see more old Tamil movies attain GA status. Vensatry (Ping me) 04:55, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
For my next "wannabe GA" Chandralekha (1948 film), there were some issues that you noted. As most of them have been solved, are there anymore issues you forgot to mention? After that, GA nomination is the next step. ---- Kailash29792 (talk) 04:16, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
You're yet to address many issues. Vensatry (Ping me) 06:11, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
I asked a question in the PR, whether the film's official DVD can be used as a source for the soundtrack? Saddest thing is, I don't know who the singers are. Kailash29792 (talk) 14:36, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
I've already left an answer for that in the page. I'm not an expert in film related articles, so better ask someone like Blofeld. Vensatry (Ping me) 15:05, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Glad to hear someone willing to work on a decade-old Tamil film. Though it looks okay, there are some minor issues relating to sourcing and puffery. Let's wait for the reviewer's call; I'll edit the article now and then. Vensatry (Ping me) 02:55, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

As I was working on Gemini, few references claim it to be the 162nd film produced by AVM. The template count revealed it to appear at number #158. Any idea about the remaining? -- Sriram Vikram (talk) 16:29, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
I can very well remember the movie trailer where it was promoted as the 162nd film. The template is still incomplete and the films are not arranged chronologically. So go ahead with the sources. Vensatry (Ping me) 16:36, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
As Sriram's content has little relevance to this section, I say he move it to a different section in this talk page. As for a possible FA review of Parasakthi, is anyone open to help or give suggestions? Kailash29792 (talk) 18:10, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Good job! Shall we proceed with the DYK nom? Vensatry (Ping me) 15:02, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
I undid the edit you made about the ALT text, and provided a link to the MOS explaining why. Have a read of that section, and let me know what you think. From my interpretation, it means we don't have to explain exactly how the image looks unless the image is there to illustrate his appearance. As in this case it is there just to illustrate him, I think it is simply appropriate to put his name. But let me know if you think I'm wrong: I'm open to disagreement!
Yeah, shoot on with the DYK nom; I can't think of anything especially interesting or exciting, so if you can suggest something feel free to just open a nomination and put me in as author2. If there isn't anything up by this evening, I'll have a crack at it. Harrias talk 15:09, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
I'll work on the DYK. On the alt text, I think it shouldn't just be the name of the subject since it's quite obvious that the article is about him. This definitely does not fall under example #1 given in the guideline. Vensatry (Ping me) 15:16, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Moodu Pani

Hi, I have a two-book encyclopedia named "The Best of Tamil Cinema", written by G. Dhananjayan. The second of the two books states that Balu Mahendra dubbed for Prathap Pothan in Moodu Pani, (pg. 45) so I used it as a source. But Dhananjayan has made many minor misleading facts in both the books, and this may be just one of them. Since we cannot prove whether most of the facts are true, (maybe until I email him about the mistakes) we can only stick to what the book says. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:26, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Even am not sure. In the scene where Pratap speaks over phone to fix an appointment with a psychiatrist, resembles Balu's voice (the dialogues are in English). But in the very next scene, the conversation between Pratap and N. Viswanathan, the voice is a bit different. Vensatry (Ping me) 11:14, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

I saw that before, but did you notice the date of expiry in the certificate. It mentions the date of expiry as 1984 and not 1987. Normally it's 10 years after the issue in those days. Also it says, "introducing" Rita Bhaduri in the title credits; she has appeared in many films before 1977. Is it the case where production had commenced in 1974, but the film got released only after three years? Vensatry (Ping me) 14:24, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
See this book published in 1974. Vensatry (Ping me) 14:26, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Translation

Though I can speak and understand Hindi well, reading an understanding formal Hindi is a bit hard for me. Seeing page 33 of the document, I estimate that the beginning of the page reads K Balachandar's Achamillai Achamillai was awarded the Best Tamil film at the 32nd National Film Awards. It also says Rajam Balachandar and V Natarajan won the Rajat Kamal (Silver Lotus) and INR10,000 cash, while KB won INR20,000 cash. The box reads "Praśasti" which means Preface, but I don't think that matters. ---- Kailash29792 (talk) 12:40, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Winners receiving Swarna/Rajat Kamal and cash prize would be quite understandable for someone who is familiar with these documents. I wanted to know what it says about the award winners. Vensatry (Ping me) 16:44, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
About the Winners: (translated from Hindi)
  • Rajam Balachandar: She has been active in the film industry since 1980, and has made films in every South Indian language.
  • V Natarajan: Born in 1944, he worked in a post office before entering the film industry. He joined Kavithalai, (the company which made Achamillai Achamillai), when it was being built.
