Description
From the Jacket:

From a very modest beginning, MGR scaled the heights of popularity in Tamil films and politics. With several mega-hits under his belt, MGR's popularity shifted over from the reel to real when he became the darling of millions - as a politician, who empathized with the common man.

Having begun his political career as a member of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), he established the Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (ADMK) in 1972 and was elected the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu consecutively for a record three terms. MGR's legacy continues to flourish through various orphanages, hospitals, schools and fan clubs associated with his name.

Charitavali is a series of biographies dedicated to the legendary figures of India.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
