Bharat Rathna MGR

Sri MGR Year 95, 25th June Monday

I happened to see Sollungae Anna Sollungae in Adhitya hosted by Imman. It is a comedy program in this a general knowledge question is shoot out to public and how well they answer, and sometimes the compere twist the question to make it more comical.


Yesterday the question was, Who is eligible to receive Bharat Rathna and name four persons who received the award? 11 persons were asked the question and as usual most of them answered wrongly but 6 persons said MGR other 3 recipients name were wrong.


The answer was given by young and old, South Indian and North Indian, man and women. The name MGR is easily related to the highest Indian Civilian Award, though the award was given to MGR posthumously people still remember the award and MGR.


Indian Government conferred Bharath Rathna award to MGR for his public affairs. The award was given posthumously.


Some in internet have projected that the award was given to him for his film career and some feel that the award was given to garner votes for Congress. Some have went to such an extent that they deleted the Certificate of Bharath Rathna which is published in Wikipedia, citing that it has been deleted for the following reason: Media without a source! Such is their hatred, MGR is a Bharath Rathna i.e. Jewel of India even they like it or not. They can only delete the image but not the image, MGR has left with us.


For them I also say that the award is given to MGR’s contribution to Tamil Nadu people, he served well than other politicians. 24 years after the award he is still regarded as God of the Poor and downtrodden, the best Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

Re Release Ninaithathai Mudipavan III

Sri MGR Year 95, 23rd June, Saturday


MGR movie Ninaithathai Mudipavan was re-released previous week in Mahalakshmi theater. The video below was captured by me for the Friday matinee show.


The video clip is the meeting of two MGR characters Sundaram and Ranjith. All the persons will be in different costumes and Sundaram is mistaken as Ranjith. And when real Ranjith comes up for the function he has another plan.


The character Ranjith is a diamond smuggler he uses his look like Sundaram against Police. Here in the video clip, look how Ranjith character played by MGR, dominates Sundaram right from the start through his body language, dialogues and camera angle. People enjoyed the dashing entry performance of MGR as Ranjith, unique to drama introduction.


After this movie release many MGR Fans christened their new born male child as Ranjith.





The above video with animation of Larry is about the antics of MGR for this particular scene.


MGR Devotee Sathya Video will be uploaded soon.

Manthiri Kumari

Sri MGR Year 95, 21st June, Thursday


MGR Devotee Tirupur Ravichandran has forwarded the Cinema Express article about MGR movie Manthiri Kumari.




Two page review was published and below is the review that have appeared in Cinema Express.




Click the above image to read.




Click the above image to read.


Though MGR acted in the leading role but more importance was given to Villain character. Even the Director Ellis Duncan kept a long shot to show MGR’s expression in the Durbar scene. This shows how much the Director tried his best to hide MGR’s talent. But MGR’s swashbuckling kept him ahead of others.

Re-Release Ninaithathai Mudipavan

Sri MGR Year 95, 16th June, Saturday

MGR dual action movie Ninaithathai Mudipavan was re-released in Mahalakshmi theater this week. I went to the matinee show yesterday and captured some videos. Here is the one video captured during the first scene of the movie.



The print was good but not excellent I have uploaded 70 MB version of the first scene.


The scene is intro of Sister character Saradha, after the rejection and humiliation you can see how MGR reacts in that two seconds, no close up shot to show his facial expression and two steps by MGR to comfort her with words and finally a brother hug. Also watch how MGR fans react to that scene.


The titles appear over Two Leaves symbol the first MGR movie to show the ADMK victory symbol. The movie was released on 9.5.1975 all over South.
