May 24, 2009
MGR Fan from 1975 and Ponmanachemmal MGR Devotee from 1987 and one of the person behind the MGR movies Guinness Record T.T.Selvan aged 41 years proud son of Thangavel and Lakshmi hails from Tutucorin. He spends two hours daily to spread the word of MGR.

The Guinness Record of screening MGR movie in Sathya theater in Tutucorin started on 4.3.2007 with MGR double action movie “Ninaithathai Mudipavan”. So far the theater has screened 116 movies, in the 25th week again Ninaithathai Mudipavan was screened, 50th week Ragisya Police 115, 75th Week Raman Thediya Seethai and 100th week MGR’s 100th movie Oli Vilakku, 116th week previous week i.e. 17.5.2009 is Kumari Kottam.

This function also continued for the 50th week and 75th week.

For the 100th week the Reels of Oli Vilakku was taken to the theater by an Elephant that function was briefly given in our earlier post. The function was presided by members of AIADMK, MGR Fans from India and abroad. Total people present in the function was 4000. The people who have watched the movie Oli Vilakku was 2850 unparalleled in History for one show theater full capacity was 1000, others were allowed to watch the movie standing.
