Sri MGR Year 100, 10th May, Wednesday

Your interaction is needed for this post.

Some of us might have heard myths about MGR's doppelganger, used during 1970s. My father had a friend who is one of MGR employees, often visits my home and I disliked his demeanor. 

Later my father used to tell me about MGR's adventures in politics and he once said about MGR using a lookalike to outwit his adversaries. Unfortunately I was around 9 years old and I did not took much interest to know more about MGR, and now my father and his friend are no more. 

Below is one image which is not photoshopped or tampered, what is your opinion after viewing this image? 

Same image with full detail along with MGR ? is K.P.Ramakrishnan the photo is shared in our blog by his son R.Govindaraj.

Please provide your answer "Yes" or "No" to

A Flexible and Deadly Blade

Sri MGR Year 100, 21st April, Friday

The urumi or curling blade in English is a type of weapon used in martial arts and its origin is from South India. This weapon is known in Tamil as ‘surul vaal’, as its name suggests, this weapon consists of a metal blade that is wielded like a whip. The surul vaal has often been described as one of the more bizarre martial arts weapon that entire world has seen. It is an extremely dangerous weapon, not only for those whom it is used against, but equally so for its wielder. Thus, this weapon is one that is exceptionally difficult to master.

This urumi or surul vaal was used by our Puratchi Thalaivar MGR for the climax action scene in "Rickshawkaran". After, MGR breaks away from the chains he draws the deadliest weapon from his belt which is the correct way of placing the surul vaal. 

MGR had used two different length weapons to perform this fight scene. One weapon length that MGR uses is nearly 4 feet long with four blades. The action scene lost roughly for two minutes. 

There is no knuckle guard only thumb guard is present for protection of the wielder, MGR has took lot of risk. We all know that Puratchi Thalaivar is well versed in various martial arts this surul vaal technique is taught in final level in Kalaripayattu. Because it is a difficult weapon to use.  

Click the image to enlarge, as I have posted the above images to comprehend how much lengthy weapon MGR uses. While performing this art in the table, MGR uses lengthier one which is roughly 9 feet.

This fight scene is more than enough for us but MGR while swinging the weapon over his shoulders in arcs, performs yet another breathtaking jump over oil barrel. MGR the master in martial arts and master entertainer.

Sri MGR Year 100, 13th April, Thursday

MGR fan members in Facebook and Mayyam will know who is Muthaiyan. He is one of the MGR fans who had a special talent in uploading Puratchi Thalaivar MGR images from his movies. He had a knack of exhibiting MGR in various themes, as he had experience in audio-visual his images stands apart from other MGR fans. 

It is disheartening to me when I came to know that Muthaiyan from Salem is no more. He passed away on 11th April, 2017. We have lost one hard working guy who carried MGR legacy to the media. We team prays for his soul to rest in peace and our heartfelt condolences to the grieving family. 

Muthaiyan once gave me title cards of most of MGR movies, I took all the colour movie title cards and uploaded in our MGR blog a couple of years back. The images he posted from the video will give a doubt from which movie MGR had given such a pose and a specialist in still images taken during action scenes without jerks. His works include collection of MGR's titles shown in the title card such as Makkal Thilagam, Puratchi Nadigar, Ponmanachemmal and Puratchi Thalaivar from every movie MGR acted, types of glasses he used, MGR in various disguises, uploading MGR smile images, collage of MGR images etc. He used to post in alphabetical order and he used to work late hours, you can still see his posting in mayyam which are uploaded during 2 and 3 am. I want to say about his humour, he posted his bike and named it as "Kadhal Vaganam" remembering one of Thalaivar movie. He is against using water mark in MGR images and he also not wanted to use his name in his shared images.
