MOGALIREKULU - A TV Serial With High Social and Moral Values of Life

A great Telugu Mega TV Serial named MOGALIREKULU is on the air for more than four years on Gemini TV ( Telugu ) channel. It is great because of its story centered around unparalleled ethical and moral values of society. It is great because it is based on a novel of the great Telugu Novel Writer Yuddhanapudi Sulochana Rani. She is one of the greatest writers of novels based on the social and ethical values of life. Her characters are superb in all her novels. Her imagination spins great male and female characters possessed with very gentle and moral values and yet arrogant and dominant to the circumstances. And, the screenplay has been beautifully spiced up with nice and appealing dialogues by Bindu Naidu which added more colors to the serial.

The title was very suitably chosen by the story writer as "Mogalirekulu". It represents the beautiful, fragrant flowers called Mogalirekulu which blossom in the midst of thorns and snakes but remain intact unaffected by the surroundings by spreading a good fragrance and giving beauty to the surroundings. The main characters of first-generation Dharma, Satya, Daya, Keerthana, Shanti, and Selva Swamy represent these flowers who were born and grown up in the midst of crimes, quarrels, and violence between families; but they emerged as good characters with high moral values, with infinite love, and an unbreakable bondage in spite of all those oddities and sufferings they faced. And, R.K.Naidu was the most admired ideal character of all those main characters as evident from the applause and fanfare he received in a very short span of time.

In Mogalirekulu, the main hero R.K.Naidu is such a great personality. At present, he is DG of Mumbai in the story. Previously, as ACP, he has gone through many agonies of life along with the other main hero, Dharma who is the eldest brother of R.K. Naidu's wife Shanti in the story. Both the characters are main heroes even though it was supposed by the writer that Dharma would be the main hero. Both these characters are of superb nature. They possessed all the good qualities of sweetness in voice, humbleness, respect for others and their values, loyalty, kindness, strength to face any type of situations, eagerness to help the needy, and what not.

Dharma was more kind-hearted and brings up his two brothers and a sister and one neighbored orphan girl with love, care, and responsibility. For their livelihood, he had to work under a contractor who was a gang leader and local Don. Dharma was very loyal to his employer who offered them food, shelter, and work. That contractor was also very friendly with him as Dharma was very loyal and protected him from all odds. But due to some incidences, their friendship breaks and Dharma was unable to digest the fact, that this closest friend-cum-employer Selvarajan and his mother Gomathi were behind their and their family's destruction. His conscience does not want to believe this. But it was a fact. There was a lot of inner conflict in his mind regarding what is right, what is wrong, what is moral, what is immoral, why people do wrong things and crimes, etc. Due to this conflict and mental confusion, he leaves all his men and goes to solitude in search of some answer for all this. His acting depicting all these feelings is great.

Similarly, The character of R.K.Naidu as a responsible police officer is very great. He deals everything with a great responsibility, keeping aloof all family matters during work. He faced many worst moments of his life during discharging of his duties. But he was very determined, bold, smart and cautious in all his actions and outcomes all hurdles. His character should be an exemplary example of the Khaki uniform in self-discipline, loyalty, endurance, confidence, smartness, and willpower. The police department should learn lessons by seeing this character.

All the characters in this serial are marvelous. But, what I want to stress here is their acting talents. If you watch the serial, you yourself will come to know how great their performance is.

R.K.Naidu's character is cast by M.Sagar. His action is superb. His expression of emotions at the victims of violence and injustice, his expression of loyalty and sincerity at workplace, and his acting during dealing with his superiors in the middle stage of the story, and his present dignity as DG of Police, his habits and walking style and speaking style are best suited to the position. His other character, as Munna the missing son during blasts, and his portrayal of the character as a goonda (mafia-don) was also very fascinating. His aggressiveness as an angry young man, with a pistol and cigarette and hanging coat during his encounters for taking revenge on bad elements of society and his acting as drinker are all very naturally portrayed by him. His encounters with each and every character are very greatly performed by him with superb skill.It seems acting has come from birth to him. Nothing appears to be artificial in his expressions or movements throughout the scenes.His present portion as Mahidhar Naidu is very fascinating and you would love to watch him stuck to the small screen especially during his encounters with Gomathi.

Gomathi's role is cast by A.Sruthi. She had acted previously in other serials and movies also. Her action in this Mogalirekulu is very great and mind-blowing. Her expression of anger, cruelty, wickedness, cunning nature, etc. are so super that you feel wholly moved with her expressions and become restless to do something to prevent her from doing any harm to your other loved characters. Such is her acting talent. Her speaking style, ascent, and action are very suitable to her role and nobody else could have done so much justice to the role.

The characters of Selvaswamy and his son Ishwar are also very suitably enacted by the actors doing those roles. Previously, Selvaswamy role was done by a person with the same name. His was of a little bit gentle and subtle nature in the beginning when Dharma was associated with him. But later on, the role required a vigorous and more stubborn personality and so the actor was changed. The present actor of Selvaswamy role is doing greater justice to the role. His expressions of feelings are very natural and his physique and dressing style, etc. are all best suited.

The heroine character of the first-generation Meenakshi and second generation Devi till recently were enacted by actor Likitha who is also a good actor. Her portrayal of Meenakshi as a South Indian humble, gentle, and kind-hearted character was very good. Beauty also contributed to her action. Her action as Devi was also very superb. She was able to portray all the feelings very naturally. The present actor of Devi portion is also good at acting. She is also doing her best to suit the character.

All other actors of the characters of Sathya, Shanti, Keerthana, Durga, Pallavi, Sindhu, Shanker, Rajani, Muniyamma, Aravind, his assistant Jagdish are all doing good to their roles. And not the least, Munna's tiny and lovely friend Ali character's actor is also to be not forgotten.

On the whole, Mogalirekulu is a great TV Serial in the Telugu language and it deserves felicitations by all Telugu people. The producers of the serial M/S Srikanth Entertainment Pvt.Ltd., Director Manjula Naidu, Script and dialogues writer Bindu Naidu, original story writer Yuddhanapudi Sulochana Rani, and Gemini TV are all commendable for presenting such a marvelous work to our Telugu Viewers. Further, all the actors and staff of the serial producing company are to be complimented for their contributions.
