Ayirathil Oruvan Release 13

Sri MGR Year 97, 21st May, Wednesday

This is the 999th post of our MGR Blog.

The restored version Ayirathil Oruvan was released in 2nd week of March 2014 all over South India, Singapore, Malaysia, UAE and France, now the movie is reaching a milestone of 75th day.

Below are two videos captured in Albert theatre for the 52nd day. The first video is title scene and followed by the first scene of our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR in the movie.


Second video is the song Yen Endra Kelvi. I was sitting in the balcony, one  MGR fan sitting in my row stepped out and was playing like our Thalaivar for the song. Suddenly people started to shout (3.17, you can see one hand) I looked out from the camera and found he was in the edge of the balcony wall and was gesturing like MGR, nothing serious happened but he ruined our joyous evening. I had added brightness to show you what he is doing on the balcony wall. After the end of the song only he came back to the seat. About this person he is not drunk might be trying to get attention or over awed by the song.

Video link for the song, click the link given below.



Above is the ad for the 75th day of Ayirathil Oruvan restored version.

Guardian Angel

Sri MGR Year 97, 17th May, Saturday

Yesterday 2014 Lok Sabha election result was announced and our beloved Leader Puratchi Thalaivar MGR founded party AIADMK won single handedly, 37 seats out of 40 with the help of MGR’s vote bank and Two Leaves symbol.


Above is the map showing the 39 constituencies and the respective parties which won, shared from Daily Thanthi.

Puratchi Thalaivar MGR founded the party in 1972, after persuasion of the people to remove the atrocious and corrupt rule of DMK. The general people supported MGR and he became the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the overwhelming support continued and still continues now, a generation after his death.


After the 2014 election result the victorious ADMK members poured milk over their Leaders statue and showed their respect and devotion. Image courtesy MGR Devotee Loganathan.

AIADMK contested this Lok Sabha general election without any alliance, the party general secretary Jayalalitha’s shrewd campaign, her deeds to the people and more over the victorious Two Leaves symbol and the Guardian Angel always in her side yielded the unprecedented victory to AIADMK. We thank the people who supported and made this a possibility.


This month header image for our MGR blog is Victoria crowning our Puratchi Thalaivar. The Roman Goddess of victory is always with our Guardian Angel MGR.
