Re-release Thanipiravi Part II

Sri MGR Year 93, 28th March Sunday

Somehow I managed to reach the theater by 6.00 pm and the ceremony has started for God MGR. The devotees started to perform their regular pooja. 14 tier garland was done by Kalaiventhan MGR Bakthargal Trust, Speaker system was done by Sri MGR Bakthargal.

The IPL wave was overcome by MGR, the crowd was huge lining from one end of the theater to another end. I saw lot of cycles and tricyles in the parking lot. The crowd was half way in the highway they physically obstructing the traffic. Their joy know no bounds.

New MGR Magazine

Sri MGR Year 93, 8th March, Monday

Most actors have fan made magazines in their acting period. But after their death or retirement the magazines will vanish. 

But our beloved Leader MGR is not that kind of an Actor, after becoming the Chief Minister he stopped acting in 1977 and his last film was released in January 1978. But even now we can see dedicated MGR Fan magazines in News stands. Various magazines comes out but only 2 or 3 are hitting the stands periodically now another MGR Fan magazine titled Nalai Namathey hit the stands this month from the Urimaikural MGR magazine team.
