A TRIBUTE (SAVITRI)
Savitri is one such prestigious artiste. Savitri's amazing talent was in full form in 'Missamma', a hit comedy that established Savitri's place firmly as a star. Mary in the film comes into an agreement with a Hindu youth, MT Rao (NTR) to pretend as a couple in order to get a job in a school. Mary was a Christian to the core, whereas Rao was a tolerant Hindu. What results in is a three hour pure comedy for the audience! Savitri was adored for the matchless ease in expression. Meena Kumari,the heroine of Hindi films said, "when I watch Savitri's acting. I usually get doubts about my own acting". Her strikingly expressive eyes and her superb sense of timing made her one of the greatest actresses. Amitabh Bacchan felt. 'Savitri was one of the first actresses with unbelievable spontaneity'. Maya Bazaar is another film that brought fame to Savitri. She played the role of Sasirekha. Recollecting the 16- annas Telugu lass clad in parikini, in the song 'allibilli ammayiki...'reminds us of Telugu culture of rich telugu culture of yesteryears.
