Yesterday 19.10.2008 I reached Motcham theatre at 5.50 p.m. the street was full with MGR Fans and Devotees. Two police Jeep was near the theatre to control the crowd. Minute by minute the crowd encroached half of the service road. 10 number of garlands were placed on MGR cut out.

House Full in Motcham Theatre

Release of Ulagam Sutrum Valiban in Sri Brinda.

Deccan Chronicle about Ulagam Sutrum Valiban issue date 20.10.2008.

Most of the critics say that the Fans of Actors will clap, whistle, fix posters and cheers their Actors but MGR Fans are different, MGR Devotees not only cheer Puratchi Thalaivar but also perform ‘Annadanam’ whenever Block Buster MGR movies were released. Below is the notice of Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR Bakthargal, they went to “Anbu Illam” H.I.G. 434, 1st Main Road, M.M.D.A. Colony, Mathur, Chennai, to feed the 38 poor children on 19.10.2008.

The weather was becoming worse and I expected rain at any moment but did not until the MGR Devotees pooja was finished the next minute the rain was pouring swiftly on us.

See for yourselves no words can describe the joy of MGR Devotees and MGR Fans, the opposite of this theatre is Ayisha Hospital the people inside also came out and watched this function. 1000 wala was going on one side, abishekam and flowers another side, traffic on halt (watch the video).


The only ticket left was Rs.40/- (watch the video) which become full within 5 minutes. The people waiting to see the movie was enormous and to ease the traffic, Police requested theatre officials to open the gate and let us in before the show time. Gates wide opened and everyone rushed inside.


Before viewing this video I have to say that all the movie clips in this post, are as is condition, Ulagam Sutrum Valiban was already enhanced video was bright, crystal clear and the sound – mind blowing, DTS nearly 80% of the back ground music was changed it felt like watching MGR acted English movie.

Scene 1

Scene 2


Some of MGR Fans did not like this change, but the reaction of DTS effect for fight scenes, songs and dialogues has overwhelming support. Watch the videos. Bottom line about this change is that MGR movies have entered DTS experience and it rocks definitely MGR’s Ulagam Sutrum Valiban is for youth audience they will enjoy each frame.

More videos of fights scenes, songs and dialogues etc. in the next post.

Mega Release

October 18, 2008

This is MGR The Box Office Emperor

MGR Pictures “Ulagam Sutrum Valiban” was released in 4 theatres in Chennai yesterday. I planned only to take some photos in Motcham theatre after 6.30 p.m. but with Yukesh Babu’s help I covered two theatres before the first show. Those who are looking at this post had to thank Yukesh Babu who made it possible for me.

This movie is just not a re-release it is Mega Release because the record held by Dr.Rajkumar (Kannada movie Super Star) for 44 centers (4 months before) for re-release record beaten by Puratchi Thalaivar MGR’s Ulagam Sutrum Valiban for 50 centers. You will find some of the theatres below.

First we reached Motcham theatre by 11.00 a.m. we thought the movie time was 11.30 but the show time is 12.00. Already Kalaiventhan MGR Bakthargal and Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR Bakthargal have erected Pandal, Placards, posters and vinyl banners.

There was shortage of Garlands due to festive season, Friday and of course MGR movie. 5 theatres screening MGR movies this week, 4 theatres Ulagam Sutrum Valiban and one Mattukara Velan in Mahalakshmi.

I found nearly 20 Auto rickshaws in the parking lot, street vendors, a couple who were living below the Doveton flyover were first to fill up the theatre and for the first show. And one MGR Hard core fan Purushothaman who had plan to see the movie 2 shows continuously. A special mention physically challenged MGR fan also came to see the movie remember for the first show. That is the craze of MGR.

There was lot of placards placed by Venkat of Ponmanachemmal Sri MGR bakthargal. Some of the placards were removed by theatre management. It will be posted soon in this blog.

Evening show for Sunday in all Chennai theatres are houseful before the first show in Motcham.

Pilot theatre was full of vinyl boards and found that the people have not gone to their house since Thursday who were busy fixing the vinyl boards and cut outs.

Diamond pictures have stated that the songs are only DTS and added CGI. I received calls from my friends and found that there is no CGI in Ulagam Sutrum Valiban and they have removed the original BGM and created new BGM with latest instrument.

Some of the scenes have wonderful effect the Dog scene in Robinson house, Fountain scene, plane scene in the song etc. and some are not.

Many hard core MGR fans feel that DTS have killed the movie and some say that this will be more appealling to the younger generation. More about this in the next post.

I think this post has more number of Images.
