Second Week

Sri MGR Year 100, 12th March, Sunday

Old theatres in and around Chennai are the heaven for the distributors for re-releasing old movies and particularly Puratchi Thalaivar MGR movies. And one such theatre is Mahalakshmi. Couple of years back theatre management converted old system of showing movies into DTS and Qube format. And from then on Mahalakshmi theatre was showing new movies. 


"Ayirathil Oruvan"  Second Week Poster

I have to get past the theatre daily for my work and I use to see that every week a new movie been released in this theatre. And to my knowledge I have not seen that movie for a second week run. Last week Divya Films have released "Ayirathil Oruvan" as 3 shows on the eve of Jayalalithaa's birthday. And the Sunday evening show was houseful! Lots of images and videos were uploaded and shared by MGR fans in social media. 

Due to the huge response from the fans, "Ayirathil Oruvan" movie is now screened for the second week. It is unprecedented for a Di, DTS movie release in Mahalakshmi to see a second week run. Mr.Chockalingam of Divya Films have forwarded the second week poster to share in our MGR blog.

Tamil Captain Blood

Sri MGR Year 100, 4th March, Saturday

Rafael Sabatini's novel "Captain Blood", in my opinion the best on screen version, our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR starrer, digitised motion picture with colour corrected and one of Divya Films proud production "Ayirathil Oruvan" is released in Mahalakshmi theatre this week on the eve of Jayalalithaa's birthday celebration. 





Above are the ad images given in print media and as well as in Facebook. We thank Mr.Chockalingam of Divya Films on releasing the cult classic movie.

The Hindu

Sri MGR Year 100, 22nd February, Wednesday

The Hindu Tamil daily continuously wrote about our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR for the centenary celebration. They shared the authoritative and rare information which were already published in many books and magazines. 


Later they published it as a book titled "MGR 100 Kaalathai Vendra Kaviya Thalaivar". Above is the cover of that book with a mesmerizing MGR image done by A.P.Sridhar. 

"The Hindu Tamil's tribute to M.G.Ramachandran, MGR 100, has sold more than 5,000 copies in less than a month of its launch on January 26. The Hindu Tamil ran a 100 day series titled MGR 100 on the eve of his centenary focussing on the many attributes of the actor-politician who founded the AIADMK.

This series that recalled his colourful legacy in an interesting way received an overwhelming response from the readers. The successful series was then compiled into a book, which again was a huge hit among readers.

A second print order of 5,000 copies of the book had also been placed, and have had a great response. The Hindu now plans to go for a third print of the book, which is priced at Rs.200".
