Padmini Pictures Ayirathil Oruvan which was released in 1965 had a 100 days run in three centres in Chennai. The same movie was restored and released by Divya Films Chockalingam this March 2014.
The younger generation those who are born after 1965, those who are born after MGR became Chief Minister, those who are born after our Leader’s death had an opportunity to know and experience how a 100th day celebration will be for a MGR movie.
Above images to the left shows part of the crowd and to the right is people watching the title card.
Like many MGR fans I was also blessed to watch the movie on the 101st day of Ayirathil Oruvan restored version. Yesterday itself the booking for Albert was full and the movie was shifted to Albert to accommodate the crowd.
A light shower happened before the evening show. As usual MGR Devotees and MGR Fans performed and showed their extra ordinary devotion.
More videos and images will follow soon.
