Two weeks back MGR movie “Kumari Kottam” was re-released in Natraj theatre, but I was not able to reach the venue. This week brand new print Devar Films “Thaai Sollai Thattadhe” was re-released.
MGR movie Ad was placed in Daily Thanthi Vellore Edition not in Chennai. There was less posters and only one type is printed but the crowd was huge.
I reached the venue 5.25 p.m. B.S.Raj and Sathya was already present. The happy news is that the Special edition of Nadodi Mannan will be released this week overcoming the hurdles which I will tell in my future post.
Matinee show was almost full I find people coming out of the theatre their profession were painter, tailor, rickshaw puller, street vendor etc. and large number of women. The character enacted by MGR in his movies has these professions. There was no new MGR movie after 31 years but still people are crazy about him because he told their problem, he gave confidence to them through his songs and dialogues. His presence is still felt.
Old MGR fans were talking about this movie and the records, the cinema halls, and they showed paper cuts. Another set of people were enquiring about the Re-release of ‘Ulagam Sutrum Valiban”. The probable date is October 3rd or October 10th. The movie will be released simultaneously in 10 theatres in and around Chennai.
