In the year 1965, our Puratchi Thalaivar starrer Enga Veetu Pillai, Panam Padaithavan, Ayirathil Oruvan, Kalangarai Vilakkam, Kannithai, Thazhampoo and Asai Mugam were released of this Enga Veetu Pillai became a box office movie and all time popular Ayirathil Oruvan came second in MGR movie collection of 1965.
In1965 the 100th day of Ayirathil Oruvan was not celebrated due to death of students who participated in Hindi agitation. The producer of Ayirathil Oruvan B.R.Panthalu had given a publication stating the reason.
In 2014, Divya Films Chockalingam had made a tremendous effort by restoring the entire footage of Ayirathil Oruvan and re-worked with the sound effects and released the movie in over 100 centres all over Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Karnataka and overseas. There was no posters as Election campaign for the Parliament is going on. Instead of the hurdles Ayirathil Oruvan restored version successfully crossed 100th day on 21.6.2014 and special show was conducted on 22.6.2014 in Albert theatre.
