Subtitled copy of Thillana Mohanambal is in Amazon.in. I bought it from there. The film depicts love, culture and tradtion of tamil nadu. And love betwwn bharatnatyam performer and nadaswaram performer, the two arts being favorite of tamil nadu. It is a cult classic movie. Even today when it is telecasted in tvpeople watch it as it was released yesterday. Such was the directional value of movie. But i am not sure if you would like it.
Vijaysree Venkatraman wrote for The Hindu in 2008 that the "special effects in this summer's Hollywood superhero movies were spectacular, but, for me, the mythological Maya Bazaar [sic] hasn't lost any of its magic", adding, "If watching the genial half-demon polish off a wedding feast single-handedly remains a treat, seeing the greedy duo from the groom's side get whacked alternately by the furniture and the wilful carpet has me in splits". The Hindu film critic M. L. Narasimham wrote: "Though there were several movie versions in various Indian languages, the 1957 Vijaya Productions' Mayabazar is still considered the best for its all round excellence". According to The Times of India, "With a powerful cast and a strong script, this movie is a stealer. Savitri, NTR [N. T. Rama Rao], ANR [Akkineni Nageswara Rao], SV Rangarao and not to mention Suryakantam add layers to their characters. Of course, the language and the dialogues, simply unbeatable. Some of the scenes are simply hilarious." d2c66b5586
