Velan the Bakthi serial with Seetha in the lead was a runaway hit among the audience. We can never leave religion from life but this serial had a wonderful twist to the age old Murugan Tale. Murugan was more human than God. Murugan was one among us. Someone who could be one among us and solve our problems. It was just the perfect religious celebration on screen. We were all glued to the screen to see our favourite God Murugan in a different avatar. It was the serial which brought out the faith within us and gave us the comfort that we desperately needed to move away from all our worries.
Popular actress Seetha played the lead. Even popular comedy actor Sathish was part of the Velan cast. Velan, was a social mythological story. Velan, was a blend of both social issues and fantasy filled mythological story. Seetha played the role of a protagonist and virgin mother.Lord takes the form of human to bring redressals. The title song by Pushpavanam Kuppuswamy was just about perfect for the tone of the serial. Nowadays serials with Nagam as the heroine is the trend. Serials like Velan are hardly seen these days. That’s why Velan is special.
