Two months back I requested S.Kumar to send the re-release records and the collections, he sent 300 pages of Xerox copies of nearly 110 MGR movies. I am sorting out the huge datas he has provided. It will take another two months to complete. He also sent various photos to publish in our Blog.

This photo is from Tutucorin 15.2.2009 on the 100th week of MGR movie release in Sathya Theatre. The 100th movie of the week was MGR’s 100th movie Oli Vilakku.

These are some of the MGR fans in Madurai. This photo is on 22.2.2009 during the re-release of Vivasahi in Madurai Meenatchi Theater.

Can you tell me how many of them are above 30 years?

This photo is on the felicitation by V.Veerapandi (Madurai Talkies Employee) to S.Kumar on his service to his God (MGR).

And this one MGR Fans Sister-in-law Saroja Devi visited Madurai and she was greeted by MGR Fans and Devotees.

Madurai Meenatchi theater is synonymous to MGR movies. This is the photo of S.Kumar with S.S.Rajendran.

Kavalkaran and Uruku Uzhaipavan were re-released recently in Madurai Meenatchi.

The images of Periya Edathu Penn was forwarded by S.Kumar. Below is the ad placed in the News paper dt.10.5.1963.

Another image is the successful completion of 10th week of MGR movie in all the theaters including Madurai Sridevi.

This is the movie review which came in the Cinema magazine in 1963, pardon for the poor scanned picture.

The movie was crossed 100 days in Chitra, Crown (Chennai) 91 days in Mahalakshmi (Chennai), Trichy (theater name not available) 93 days, Madurai Sri Devi 10.5.1963 to 2.8.1963 – 85 days due to legal problem between the Film distributor and Theater management the movie was changed to City Cinema (Madurai) 3.8.1963 onwards – 55 days combined run 140 days. Since Madurai is MGR’s fort. Most successful records comes from Madurai there is no second opinion.
