Silambam Master

On the topic of movies, here is a Tamil classic from 1966 titled Mugarasi starring the legendary MG Ramachandran aka MGR.  The movie centres on the ancient Tamil martial art of Silambam.  In this cut, MGR uses a pair of maduvu made from deer horns to fight two stick wielding Silambam opponents. Captured off a TV playback, the video is a bit fuzzy and you have to turn up the audio. But check out the original production quality; they don't make them like this anymore. India
