Adimai Penn was released on 1st May 1969 all over Tamilnadu. Subsequently Hindi version was also released in North India.
I hereby produce the Silver Jubilee and Collection records of Adimai Penn movie the real 8 page booklet was done by MGR Kalaikuzhu Rasigargal Salem, which was issued during the release of Nam Nadu. I got this booklet one and half years back. I have given the last 4 pages of the booklet.
The collection records are categorized into 50 days collection and 100 days collection in theater wise, District wise collection and State wise collection. The booklet was issued with the help from Pallavaram Ramamurthy, Tamil Mani, Abdul Gani (Chennai) Madurai Rangasamy, Marimuthu (Trichy) Subramanian (Kovai) Vai.Ko.Rasu, Durai, Ram and Govindaraj (Salem). I am wondering how many of them should be alive now. If they are still living how many of them know that their work is being published in Internet and the World is watching their hard work. This booklet is 40 years old and the MGR Fans were at the age group of 25 to 35 at that time.
