Sri MGR Year 92, November 3rd Tuesday

This post is dedicated for those who have unveiled the mask of Box Office Emperor MGR.

Taken from thread.

இவற்றைச்சொன்னால், அதை நேராக எதிர்கொள்வதைவிடுத்து அவர்கள் திசை திருப்பும் வாதம் என்ன தெரியுமா?. எம்.ஜி.ஆரின் படங்கள் இன்றைக்கும் வசூலாகின்றன. நன்றாக ஓடுகின்றன என்பதுதான். ஏன் அடிமைப்பெண்னையும், எங்கவீட்டுப்பிள்ளையையும், ஆயிரத்தில் ஒருவனையும் மட்டுமே இப்போது வெளியிடுகிறீர்கள்?. ஒரு உழைக்கும் கரங்கள், ஒரு பட்டிக்காட்டு பொன்னையா, ஒரு சங்கே முழங்கு, ஒரு ‘ ஒரு தாய் மக்கள்’ என்று மறு வெளியீடு செய்து பாருங்களேன். அப்போ தெரியுமே ‘பாக்ஸ் ஆஃபீஸ் கிங்கின்’ திறமையும் செல்வாக்கும்.

With help of friends I am able to record the re-release of MGR movies from 2006, 2007 and 2008. And 2009 is under preparation. For this I have to answer. They tell that MGR is weak in BO, and only MGR’s mega hits are re-released frequently.

Not only mega hit MGR movies released today MGR’s average movies for them flops are released every week in Tamilnadu and fetch money. I am giving the re-release of flop movies (average movies for us) in Chennai city alone, which is spinning money for the distributors. Madurai region and other will follow soon.

In 2009:

Uzhaikum Karangal was released in New Broadway as 11.30 show from 10.7.2009 to 16.7.2009.

Neerum Nerupum released in Minerva as 3 shows from 14.8.2009 to 20.8.2009.

For other movies released in 2008 check this url.

Please count how many flop movies (for them) have released in 2008. More will follow soon, I cant find time to publish this post properly.

The best here:

They will accept that Kalangarai Vilakam is flop movie, that same movie is running successfully in Nataj theatre as 3 shows and the distributors have placed ads in Daily Thanthi on Friday and Monday.

    Thambi Says:

    May we they can release the Sivaji film they consider THE best and the reality. Not just Kalangarai Vilakkam, all the movies they referred here had re-releases.

    With no office too Sivaji fans, even Shanthi theatre is not releasing any good Sivaji film. (except Puthiya Paravai recently). But MGR films are all over the place.
