When the Earth Stood Still

December 24, 2007

24th December 1987 the Time was 4.30 am my brother who went to buy milk return sober face and told MGR is dead. I thought the news should be another rumour. But when the time went past 5.30 am there was no traffic, silence. Radio announced MGR’s death. The Earth stood still, my neighbours (Press Owner and his brothers) who are hard core MGR fans were dumb struck. They dont know how to react to the news, some of them left to see MGR for the last time.

Here is the video of MGR’s final journey. I got this video somehow I edited to 2 mts, but when I tried to add some background music I was not able to do it. Eventhough I closed my room I was in tears, so I left this video muted.


Today MGR’s remembrance. My home is located in Purasawalkam constituency which is hold by DMK. But every street end there is MGR smiling face kept by MGR Fans.

Remembrance II

December 21, 2007

For Tamilan:

The image is taken from MGR movie records.

The First successful movie for MGR as Hero is his first Hero movie Rajakumari and not Manthiri Kumari as you have mentioned.

Secondly En Thangai record note number of days.

Nearly 17 years back I had the record for all MGR acted movies and which theater it was released. Unfortunately due to shifting and other reasons I lost most of the books, paper cuttings and pictures.

Below is the record for Oli Vilakku.

A week back Sathya showed two designs for the anniversary. Second design made as Poster for this year. Today Sathya handed over the Poster done by Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR Bakthargal. A Very young MGR’s portriat adored the poster.

MGR Devotees:
Yukesh Babu, M.Sathya, G.Raja, D.Kumar, S.Velu, B.Unnikrishnan, M.K.Venkat, Mullai Manivannan.
The wording are very different. “God apart of religion, not this twenty years even two hundred years after nobody can fill your place”.

Another view of the Poster. Long Live MGR Fame.
