Sri MGR Year 100, 12th March, SundayOld theatres in and around Chennai are the heaven for the distributors for re-releasing old movies and particularly Puratchi Thalaivar MGR movies. And one such theatre is Mahalakshmi. Couple of years back theatre management converted old system of showing movies into DTS and Qube format. And from then on Mahalakshmi theatre was showing new movies.
"Ayirathil Oruvan" Second Week Poster
I have to get past the theatre daily for my work and I use to see that every week a new movie been released in this theatre. And to my knowledge I have not seen that movie for a second week run. Last week Divya Films have released "Ayirathil Oruvan" as 3 shows on the eve of Jayalalithaa's birthday. And the Sunday evening show was houseful! Lots of images and videos were uploaded and shared by MGR fans in social media.
Due to the huge response from the fans, "Ayirathil Oruvan" movie is now screened for the second week. It is unprecedented for a Di, DTS movie release in Mahalakshmi to see a second week run. Mr.Chockalingam of Divya Films have forwarded the second week poster to share in our MGR blog.
