A Request For Nadigar Thilagam Fan

Sri MGR Year 95, 8th June, Friday

When some one from Nadigar Thilagam fan base wrote a poem about Karnan successful re-release, and in the poem he has indecently wrote about Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, MGR fans started to write comment about the re-release of Karnan in the srimgr.com site.

Seeing this a Nadigar Thilagam fan who comes in the name of Saradhi, Amudhan, Unami vilambi, Sowrirajan, Sathyasai, Sivakumar, Adapaavingala, Arun, Politics_since60s etc. all are the same person wrote comments and replies. I can judge because apparently every comment was published from 1st May 2012 from 10.45 am onwards. I do not got that much traffic on that day to my site for this innumerable comments. All the comments arise from one location, I am spending nearly 1 to 2 hours everyday checking the traffic pattern of my site through webstat and Google analytics. So it is not difficult for me to correlate how many persons or person has given this comment.

I have been writing MGR blog from 2005 and I know how many people will comment, for what and why they comment. The above said name was logged on to our srimgr.com site on 1st May 2012 from 10.45 am and the same person was giving comments till 5 pm, the whole office hour, but it is not a working day. And he thinks that I am idiot, below are some of the comments that he has written.

ithayakani

ithayakani_collection

A MGR fan has given comment that Ithayakani movie has generated 50 lakhs as tax, here he asks the published proof, when other MGR fan gives the published proof he says that this was published by us! he wants the proof from thinathanthi, dinamani etc. I know the above was given in a daily definitely not in thinathanthi, at the time MGR and Adhithinar are not in good terms.

karnan_50

The above was given to notify the different names he used, watch the date and time of comment.

karnan_mgr_movies

He further states that to defeat Karnan release MGR movies were released weekly. How intelligent he is. I have been posting how many MGR movies were re-released every year from 2007. I am asking him how many Nadigar Thilagam movies were released during 2007 to 2012 and do you think to counter his movies, 40 to 45 MGR movies were released every year in Chennai alone, and you think MGR movies were only re-released because of Nadigar Thilagam movie release? And he says that family crowd is only for Nadigar Thilagam! do you think MGR movies are adults only?

mgr_fans

Here is another move by him, he feels that MGR fans are from cheri that is downtrodden people. He, in another name Sathyan, a name given by his subconscious mind, that Karnan is running in Sathayam theater that time, copy pasted an article written by Gopalan Ravindran in blogs.wide journal. org. He feels that I will be mortified by saying that “Do you think this group will ever understand your diction..? They will take this to all universities to understand the meaning of what you have written !”. Ok Sir, do you know what Gopal Ravindran has written?

For your kind information I have been writing this blog not for persons who majored in English Literature and my Blog subject is not English literature, my readers are MGR Fans, some are less educated, who have some knowledge of English language, operating the computer and watching internet. This I should keep in mind and use simple words to make them understand what I am trying to say.

If you feel my writing is not standard why do you visit? Am I giving any money for your visit? or did I beg your self to pay a visit?

mgr_hits

Another genius question by him.

mgr_sivaji

His knowledge of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR and Nadigar Thilagam are limited you can understand how well he knows about Nadigar Thilagam.

politics

Here in the above comment he says that our beloved Leader MGR is a person to be prosecuted under section 420. And further states that Rajiv Gandhi was killed by MGR’s attitude.

And another comment which clearly states his knowledge about MGR. He says that Chandrababu who directed Maadi Veetu Ezhai and became pauper? and Chandrababu set fire to the negative of the movie.

Sir do you know this fact, when was the movie maadi veetu ezhai was produced? After 1964 MGR gave chance to Chandrababu to act in Parakum Paavai, a meaty role in Adimai penn all this happened after Maadi Veetu Ezhai incident. About the fire part, he might have gone through a book written by Vijayan titled MGR Kathai there Vijayan mentions that MGR did not give proper call sheet to Gemini S.S.Vasan for Olivilakku and S.S.Vasan asked his assistant to go to Ramapuram gardens and ask the call sheet if MGR did not answer rightly, throw the negatives and burn it in front of his house. And MGR gave call sheet and completed Oli Vilakku. This is what Vijayan has written in MGR Kathai, the commenter has gone through this and related to Chandrababu incident. His attitude clearly states that he is half baked in his views.

Please do not write if you do not know about Puratchi Thalaivar MGR. Write about Nadigar Thilagam properly, if you have doubt ask your senior Nadigar Thilagam fans who know quite well about his movies and politics.

There is a saying.

Nobody knows how much or how little one knows until he starts talking (writing).

sivaji_politics

In the above comment he has given a reply for Professor Selvakumar about the election result of Nadigar Thilagam. Read and understand how childish his reply.

challenge

In the above comment he has challenged MGR Fans to release and break Karnan Records. Why we should do? and he thinks that MGR Fans are the persons re-releasing MGR movies from 1978 to till date.

jayalalitha

The pinnacle of his comment, he mentions that we MGR Fans preferred Jayalalitha rather than Janaki Ramachandran. Are you ok Sir, do you think the votes garnered by Jayalalitha comes only from MGR Fans? even MGR votes are people vote, they did not look MGR as Actor. Some people not liked his movies but voted for him. Ask senior Nadigar Thilagam Fans if you have doubt.

Finally I want to say to him is, I am writing about MGR only, glorifying him, and not about Nadigar Thilagam Sir. And at the same time if you Sir like to see articles about degrading MGR, you are looking at the wrong site, just Google, I am assuring you Sir. So please do not waste your precious time by reading the junk written by downtrodden people.

  1. excellent reply roop. i will publish mine soon

  2. In response to NT fan:

    Sivaji has family audience. Does that mean MGR films are not watched by women!!!! If that is the case why NT did not win in the election on his own? They want to follow only Dinakaran, Daily Thanthi, Sivaji Times, Sivaji Kural, Sivaji Murasu, and of ourse their our mayyam thread. கண் மூடி போகிறவர் போகட்டுமே. However let them find some facts about NT from the attached link:

    http://www.sangam.org/2008/11/Sivaji_Ganesan.php?uid=3155&print=true

    “Of the 49 TMM candidates who stood for election, none were elected. Sivaji himself lost at Tiruvayaru constituency to DMK candidate Chandrasekaran Durai by a margin of 10,643 votes. He notes, “The votes that I secured came from people of another party. It is true that I was defeated”.

    So now who betrayed NT? Now are they going to say what we have provided now is also fabricated news?

  3. In response to NT fan:

    We indeed appreciate the successful runoff Karnan! Daily 4 shows in all theaters and all shows Housefull and tickets being sold in black @ IRS.2000.00 which also is in demand!!! Yes somewhere NT fan used a world called that “Santhosham” Does he really know it means?

    Karnans so called successful run is something like Shahid Afridi scoring a century once in 50 innings and the success of MGR films for years is like Don Bradman scoring a century in every time he plays:

    பொய்மை எப்போதும் ஓங்குவதும் இல்லை உண்மை எப்போதும்தூங்குவதும் இல்லை

    In fact the cheap comments of such fans bring only disgrace to the
    NT. Unfortunately, we are forced to retaliate.

  6. For the matured NT fan I need to say the following:

    Subsequent to Karnans success, why not release All NT films in all Tamil Nadu Theaters every week. Tamil Cinema is, in fact, going through a very bad situation. Everyone shall become millionares overnight!

    ஏய்பவர்க்கே காலம் என்று எண்ணி விடாதே

  7. In response to NT Fan:

    Had MGR wanted to become CM , why did he give his full fledged support MK after the demise of CNA? He could have become the CM then itself! Now what do you want to say for this – plot? We know what we can expect from a senseless person like you.

    All your comments are baseless and you want to say just for the sake of it. So the best option for you is the shut all your openings and keep quiet.

    Please do not make such comments in the name of NTFan, which even NT family members will not like.

    பொது நீதிக்கும் நேர்மைக்கும் பயந்துவிடு

  8. Fantastic blows , Your facts are 100 % correct ! Keep on with your
    Good work ‘Roop ‘! WE ARE BEHIND YOU ! LONG LIVE MGR FAME !

  9. All the people of Tamil Nadu know very well that MGR , the only super star of Tamil cinema. Even after his death , and even today his movies has been repeatedly seen by more and more fans . Many people who born only after the passing away of our beloved leader were his fans. His movies were sold for highest amount till he was acting. Even after his passing away his movie named “Anna Nee En Theivam” was sold for highest amount which was concluded by K.Bhakiyaraj for 14 crores which was the record upto that time. In the book named “Encyclopedia of Indian cinema” only our MGR’s photo was published in its cover from south India. It is false report that Sivaji’s movies ran for more than 100 days and 200 days . His finished movie ( I forgot the name) was not yet released. I read an article in KUMUDAM magazine at the time of Sivaji’s passing away. One of his fan and famous film producer stated about that film in that magazine and his aim was to release that picture. And many movies like Parampariyam waited for long and long period for lack of distributors and became utter flop.

  10. comment
    Politics_since 60s
    Yes, Mr.Selvakumar…He has forgotten one more point….After acting on screen as saviour with clean habits who will always preach the effects of drinking….once he became CM, he joined hands with Mr.Udayaar a liquid baron and promoted “Gadaa” mark saaraayam to every nook and corner of tamilnadu and made many Citizen(kudimagangal). Isnt this equal to Section 420 of IPC? But Mr.mohan might justify saying it is a revenue for government…

    my reply

    mr.politics

    makkal thilagam opened liquor shops in his tenure for selective period not all the 11 years he ruled, first know the fact. he is the only leader who opened and closed your favorite gadaa mark saaraayam in his rule the shops were closed after 31st December 1986 that is the last day your favorite drink saw the light of tamil nadu. If you need proof check your dailythanthi December micro film that are available in Chennai dailythanthi office. So how you can say he is 420, oh you were boosting that you are legally supreme than makkal thilagam fans.

    thalaivar opened such shops only for revenue, when his government had necessary funds he closed it immediately. the same was sarcastically mentioned in balachander movie it is also a proof for you.

    people were already drinking kalla saaraayam right from your sivaji guru kamaraj rule. if you want proof the same is published in leading dailies on those days. and the government started to open these shops during karunanidhi rule, makkal thilagam is only person to close liquor shops, that is why thai kulam voted makkal thilagam and most people had the confidence in his rule. they know thalaivar has clean habits in real life too unlike other actors that is why he was undefeated in politics .

    you might also ask did makkal thilagam ruled for 11 years were is the proof you can check it in dailythanthi dinamani, not only tamil dailies but also english too like hindu, indian express.

  11. what is section 420:
    Whoever cheats and thereby dishonestly induces the person deceived any property to any person, or to make, alter or destroy the whole or any part of a valuable security, or anything which is signed or sealed, and which is capable of being converted into a valuable security, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.

    in which way is thalaivar capable of prosecuting him under section 420. did he personally had any monetary gain through introducing liquor shops. do you have proof that thalaivar received such and such amount and amazed wealth and constructed large villas, engineering colleges, medical colleges, marriage halls, bank funds in his name or in his family names. if you have proof then publish it or else you are 420 and you get enthralled by defaming thalaivar that is the gain you received by the comment you have made, you 420. do you know about thalaivar brother chakrapani family do you know they are living like thalaivar fans they do not have large villas, engineering colleges, medical colleges or bank deposits in their names. a person who have ruled for 11 years and still his siblings heirs are struggling to have good life. what this means, that thalaivar is BHARATH RATHNA and you are 420. unfit to call my thalaivar.

    fire in porur that you have mentioned can you give the proof that thalaivar did that, did the same news came in dailythanthi that M.G.R. was the responsible person. once again asking you do you have proof, if not you are 420 you are a person whose life is full of cheating and should be prosecuted under section 420 of indian penal code.

  12. drinking is evil but the congress government issued permit to drink is it not a crime is this does not comes under 420.

    i want proof please forward the published proof of the following to my email address:

    1. 1000 plus huts caught fire that was done by thalaivar.
    2. Chandrababu becoming pauper for maadi vitu ezhai.
    3. sa asokan becoming pauper after releasing netru indur nalai, sa asokan son is still living ask him to forward the audit records to my email address.
    4. producers not producing jaishankar moveis.
    5. actor ravichandran loosing his market out of blue.
    6. actor nagesh house raided by thalaivar? is Income Tax department owned by thalaivar or central government.

    Forward all these details to my email address selvagrouch@gmail.com within one week failing which you will be named as Mr.420.

    • Certainly he wont reply but start some ugly false news in Mayyam,In Makkal Thilagam MGR part II all the Sivaji fans are coming and making baseless allegations and iti is being allowed because of that Mohan Ram (actor)

      • Thanks for your comment Sir. As you have mentioned what Mohan Ram is going to achieve from false allegations?

      • Do you know who the person has written this comment in srimgr.com site?

  13. Thalaivar is the only ‘real’Super Star in Tamil film world.
    When talking about films, his enemies say he does not know acting, but when talking about politics, the same people say he mesmerised the people by his acting. Dont care about these hypocrites. Go ahead with your splendid work.

  14. Dear Roop,

    Please accept my congratulations for the Excellent reply you have published. .

    In my opinion, our great beloved MGR cannot be compared with any actor or even with any Leader in the Politics.

    However, sometimes, it is necessitated to give suitable answers to some of the genuine Sivaji Ganesan’s Fans in response to their reasonable queries. . For other majority lunatic sivaji fans, we need not reply since they put on us meaningless questions. It is not obligatory on our part to answer to their silly questions.

    The entire world knows that MGR is second to none. For example, the film Padagotti, when it was released in the year 1982 created a Record by its running continuous period of one month (from 02-07-1982 to 29-07-82 with not less than 3 shows in 9 Theatres at Chennai alone, unlike the Movie Karnan, which was compulsorily run with only one show in the Theatre just to establish that it also can run 100 days (100 shows) with few Audience and at times single digited audience.

    The film Padagotti, when we take into account similar to Karnan’s calculation of running days, can be construed that it ran for 189 days (i.e. 3 shows x 7 days x 9 Theatres.

    We can also quote the Records created by the Film Anbe Vaa in the year 1983 and the film Ulagam Sutrum Vaaliban in the year 1990, likewise.

    Therefore, let us not bother about such baseless and useless comments posted by those lunatic group.

    Very soon the list of flopped movies given by Sivaji Ganesan, out of his total films of 288 (ending with Poopparikka Varugirom, will be published in our mgrdevotees Website.

    OUR BELOVED LEADER ONLY HAS REPEATED AUDIENCE FOR EVER.

    This is the historical truth.

    Long Live the name and fame of our beloved god M.G.R.

    Prof. S. Selvakumar
    .

    • Professor Selvakumar Sir thank you for the comment.

      The comment that have been posted in srimgr.com site in many names were done by one person. And we should not blame other Nadigar Thilagam fans. His intention is to defame MGR only. For that we should not write any ill about Nadigar Thilagam as this was written by his fan, we should write only about the style of his comment Sir.

      As you have mentioned about the re-run of MGR movies please publish with proof. Once again thank you for your comment.

    • After the sad demise of Thalaivar Oli Vilakku was released in Theatre Nagesh. I think it was 4 shows a day for the next 5 weeks.

      In the same manner USV was released in many theaters in 1990, correct?

      • Yes Ulagam sutrum valiban had a good collection in 1990 re-release, but I was not a MGR fan during 1988 so I do not know about Oli Vilakku re release in Nagesh Theater. Seniors has to provide information.

  15. In resposne to NT fan.

    Why should Makkal Thilakam Fams digitalise his films and release the same. Does Sivaji Fans or Sivaji Films do the same in case of NT Films. So writing nonsense. Why Sivaji Fans/Films produce new films. Instead they can digitalise NT films and release them!!!!!

    Further it is not necessary for MGR films to be digitalised. It always enjoys excellent run whenever & wherever released [ including worst prints]. Also, check for yourself if the best prints of other actors are more expensive than the worst prints of MGR films.

  16. In response to 840 NT Sivaji Fan:

    So you say SA Ashokan became a pauper after the release of Netru Indru Naalai and Chandra Babu because of MVE.

    Does that mean SS Rajini became a pauper after the moderate success of BABA? Do you know that 99.9% of the films are not released by the producer. It is sold to the distributors?

    OK just for argument sake, how many producers became pauper after taking films with NT, there are many films of NT which were utter flops. Why do not you direct the same question to any real NT fan?

    You are writing some cheap comments about MGR and his fans and making us retaliate. You should know that NT fans provocate MGR fans. As otherwise we do not make any comments on our own about NT Sivaji Ganesan or his acting capabilities.

    Secondly why do we [MGR Fans] need to make any comments. Our Thalaivar is the Box Office Emperor and ruled TN for 10 years. That is more that enough to show his fan following and popularity.

    MGR Bakthargal

  17. In response to NT fan:

    “PRODUCERS NOT PRODUCING JAI SHANKAR MOVIES”

    Firstly, you should know that the number of Films produced at the time were like like now.

    There was a saying at that time “Firday means Jai Shankar movie is released”. You should try to get the details/ number of films Jai Shankar acted every year and then open your filthy mouth.

    பொய்யிலே பிறந்து பொய்யிலே வளர்ந்த பெருமானே, try to write something realistic

  18. In response to NT fan:

    “actor ravichandran loosing his market out of blue”

    If we go by your comments whatever was happening in the film world was all because of MGR.

    You say only Sivaji films had a successful run. If that is that case MGR would have stopped that as well! Even SSR, Gemini and many more also faded during the 1970. Does that mean it is also because of MGR.

    We can only pity on you. It is high time you get admitted in any mental Hospital, because I strongly doubt that you are writing such comments just to get noticed. Please note that all your pranks and gimmicks will not work.

    உழைப்பவரே உரிமை பெறுவதிலே இன்பம். That is the verdict of the people of TN.

    • Boss, do not argue with people who does not know anything about our Vadhiyar. Nobody can act like him nor be active like him.

      After the death of 25 years, even his name is not only famous and popular in Tamil Nadu, even outside the Tamil Nadu. Even now also his movies are getting released in Karnataka, Andhra and Kerala where one can find lakhs of fans followed in the neighbouring states. Even exactly on 24.06.2011 Adimai Penn was Re-released in Bangalore and other parts of Karnataka where it has Ran for 50 days creating a record collection of 17 Lakhs whereas the Vasantha Maligai and Karnan has been released in bangalore where it has gone utter flop as it could not able to create the record like Adimai Penn.

      MGR has won the best actor National award for Rickshawkaran movie released in 1972. Shivaji????????????????????????????

      Recently Ulagam Sutrum Valiban Movie has been released in Malaysia created a record there , Shivaji Movie???????????
      MGR’s Statue has been installed in Malaysia, Shivaji Statue?????

      Shivaji started making father and Elder brother roles when his age crossed 45-50, and during age of 60 Grand Father Role, but our Vadhiyar till his last movie (Age 60) he is the HERO of the HEROES.

      As Radharavi told during 1983-1984 where there is a heavy loss suffered by Tamil Film Industry, MGR has donated Rs.5 Lakhs towards the welfare fund eventhough he was not acting in movies at that time.Shivaji??????????????????????????????

      He is the first Indian donar for the war welfare fund during India china war.Shivaji????????????????????????????????

      Shivaji = Dada Saheb (Only for Films), but MGR = Bharat Ratna(Jewel of India) means in every good field.

      Please note, Shivaji & Shivaji’s Son Prabhu are great fan of Vadhiyar.

  19. Some of the MGR films in those years released subsequently ie. 6 to 8 films in 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, in which super hit moveis were running packed and very few had to fetch lesser collection but not flaps as that of other Actors ie. half theatre or quarter theotre strength were not there for MGR movies, since the cost of MGR films were high so if 3/4th of the threatre strength is not there films were shifted to other towns. Everywhere MGR films were running with good collection. It is an established fact for which records are there from 1950 to 1977 till he quit the films.

    • Sir thanks for the comment. Everybody knows this fact but some wants to over cast a shadow on MGR’s performance in box office.

    • Dear friends,

      In my youth, I had witnessed all the records of those years’ heroes. I am referring to 1950 to 1977 ie. Pre-entry of Kamal and Rajini. Generally, MGR films were running packed houses, even flop movies too ran upto one month with houseful shows. If the strength of the theatre is below ¾ it would be shifted to other towns, where it ran with packed houses with profit motive and days were not taken into account. That is why some of the best movies were also shifted to other towns when 6 – 8 number of films released consecutively, in the years 1963 to 1968. The main reason is that the salary of MGR and the cost of production of MGR films were always higher than the other Actors. Whereas the same were cheaper for other actors and hence films were allowed to run with quarter / half theatre strength to 100 days and even upto Silver Jubilee week, if marginal profit was there, such of those films should not be compared even with the collections of 50 days of MGR films. MGR had severe setbacks during 1959, when there was fracture in his leg, he could not act on films for few months, in which Baga Pirivinai turned to be box office hit of the year. In 1960, MGR got recovered and recouped with and did acting to complete the unfinished films, in which Kalyana Parisu became box office hit. Thereafter from 1961 to 1977 except 1972 his films were box office hits and all time records consecutively. In the year 1972, Vasantha Maligai became all time record, in which year MGR was expelled from DMK and he was terribly disturbed and the fans were behind him to tackle the situation and hence he could not concentrate on the films. However, few films were released in which Nalla Neram stood second in collection. In 1973 itself the record of Vasantha Maligai was beaten by Ulagam Sutrum Valiban an all time record. Shivaji himself fed up with regard to poor collection of his films and started doing over-acting long before. When there was a query from the Press People regarding his over-acting, Shivaji lamented and said nowadays the people of TN want only over-acting or otherwise they are not seeing his films. All other Actors were doing under-act which was accepted by the people, whereas Shivaji’s over-acting could not be digested by the people except a few. This being the situation then, why the fans of Shivaji are in angry with MGR? Both of them are not alive now. The MGR fans were that much devoted and dedicated to MGR, they worked hard day and night and were behind him to make him the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Whereas the unfaithful fans of Shivaji could not make him a member of Legislative Assembly, which had to lose even in his own native constituency with a margin of more than 10,000 votes. The Fans should feel shame on them and not blame MGR. Shivaji is not at all blamable in any way. No doubt he was the Best Actor of Indian Cinema. The fans of Shivaji should realize their own recklessness and failures on their part when he was alive. Now that the past proven track records and history cannot be changed by anyone.
      S. Ranganathan

  20. The first two written by me may kindly be deleted and the last one may be kept for readers, since I had added certain facts in the last one, please.

  21. It was Shivaji himself fed up with regard to poor collection of his films and started doing over-acting for which the Press People also pointed out regarding his over-acting, Shivaji lamented and said nowadays the people of TN want only over-acting or otherwise they are not seeing his films. All other Actors used to act to the required level, which was accepted by the people, whereas Shivaji’s over-acting could not be digested by the people except a few. This being the situation then, why the fans of Shivaji are in angry with MGR? The MGR fans were that much devoted and dedicated to the Thalaiver and MGR had high hope on his Fans, who served as defense force for the mission of their mentor during 1972, when he was expelled from DMK and they worked hard day and night in the field till MGR rose to the position of Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Whereas the unfaithful fans of Shivaji could not make him a member of Legislative Assembly, which he had to lose even in his own native constituency with a margin of more than 10,000 votes. The Fans should feel shame on them and cannot match them with the fans of MGR in any aspect. As far as collection part and box office hits he was second to MGR. In fact Shivaji had more common viewers for his religious films like Thiruvilaiyadal, Thiruvarutselver, Sarasvathi Sabadam, Kandhan Karunai etc. who are not at all in the fold of Fans. The problem is not with MGR and Shivaji. One who was wounded and lost the battle used to lament and cry and always try to revenge on the won. The fans of Shivaji should realize their own recklessness and failures on their part when he was alive. Let Shivaji fans watch the activities of Kamal, Rajini, Vijayakanth, Sathyaraj, Sarathkumar, Vikram, Ajith, Vijay, Surya, Simbu, Karthik and so on. They are prepared to do anything for their mentor. Is that spirit was with Shivaji Fans. Their own sense of thing was pricking their heart and soul and their own conscious should make them realize their follies and failures on the past. Now that the past proven track records and history cannot be changed by anyone.
    Let MGR’s glory flourish

  22. Small correction after “Let Shivaji fans watch the activities of the Fans of Kamal……… Fans is missing.

  23. At last we have to pity on Shivaji fans as they want to hide their own faults with regard to their sincerity towards their mentor. Dear Roop,

    In my youth, I had witnessed all the records of those years’ heroes. I am referring to 1950 to 1977 ie. Pre-entry of Kamal and Rajini. Generally, MGR films were running packed houses, even flop movies too ran upto one month with houseful shows. If the strength of the theatre is below ¾ it would be shifted to other towns, where it ran with packed houses with profit motive and days were not taken into account. That is why some of the best movies were also shifted to other towns when 6 – 8 number of films released consecutively, in the years 1963 to 1968. The main reason is that the salary of MGR and the cost of production of MGR films were always higher than the other Actors. Whereas the same were cheaper for other actors and hence films were allowed to run with quarter / half theatre strength to 100 days and even upto Silver Jubilee week, if marginal profit was there, such of those films should not be compared even with the collections of 50 days of MGR films. MGR had severe setbacks during 1959, when there was fracture in his right leg, he could not act on films for few months, in which Baga Pirivinai turned to be box office hit of the year. In the same year Veerapandiya Kattabomman was produced at a huge cost ran more than 100 days but the collections were not even nearer to the production cost. The same was happened to Karnan also in 1964. In 1960, MGR got recovered and recouped with and did acting to complete the unfinished films, in that year Kalyana Parisu became box office hit. Thereafter from 1961 to 1977 except 1972 his films were box office hits and all time records consecutively. In the year 1972, Vasantha Maligai became all time record, in which year MGR was expelled from DMK and he was terribly disturbed and the fans were behind him to tackle the situation and he had to encounter the hurdles given by the DMK Govt. then and hence virtually he could not concentrate on the films. However, few films already completed were released in which Nalla Neram stood second in collection. In 1973 itself the record of Vasantha Maligai was beaten by Ulagam Sutrum Valiban an all time record. Shivaji himself fed up with regard to poor collection of his films and started doing over-acting for which there was a query from the Press People regarding his over-acting, Shivaji lamented and said nowadays the people of TN want only over-acting or otherwise they are not seeing his films. All other Actors used to act to the required level, which was accepted by the people, whereas Shivaji’s over-acting could not be digested by the people except a few. This being the situation then, why the fans of Shivaji are in angry with MGR? Both of them are not alive now. The MGR fans were that much devoted and dedicated to MGR had high hope on his Fans, who served as defense force for the mission of their mentor during crisis in politics they worked hard day and night and lifted MGR to the position of Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Whereas the unfaithful fans of Shivaji could not make him a member of Legislative Assembly, which he had to lose even in his own native constituency with a margin of more than 10,000 votes. The Fans should feel shame on them and cannot match them with the fans of MGR in any aspect. The problem is not with MGR and Shivaji. One who was wounded and lost the battle used to lament and cry and always try to revenge on the won. The fans of Shivaji should realize their own recklessness and failures on their part when he was alive. Let Shivaji fans watch the activities of Kamal, Rajini, Vijayakanth, Sathyaraj, Sarathkumar, Vikram, Ajith, Vijay, Surya, Simbu, Karthik and so on. They are prepared to do anything for their mentor. Is that spirit is with Shivaji Fans. Their own sense of pricking heart, soul and conscious would make them realize their follies and failures on their part earlier and they have nothing to talk about the present and future. Now that the past proven track records and history cannot be changed by anyone. Let MGR glory flourish.

  24. fact is fact. who were really benefited not financially are lucky enough. we need not bother about the success or failure of the movie. we should see whether to watch the movie worth or not. we should see how the youngsters of this generation receives/appreciates. past is past. let the youngesters not to repent or not to loose their future. we should not miss to watch yester years bloc busters.
