MGR is the Mantra for lakhs of his followers. The ever green superstar of Tamil Nadu, who had carved a niche for himself in Tamil cinema before assuming the office of Chief Ministership, still lives in the hearts of his fans. His legacy can never be eroded.
At a time when young heroes have come and the industry has undergone several changes, his movies still have the power of pulling huge audiences to theaters. To cash in on the opportunity, a couple of his yesteryear classics are getting re-released.

One of the die hard MGR fans says, "Seeing Puratchi Thalaivar on screen is always a thrilling experience to me. He is immortal. We enjoy the movie even now as a fresh one..." That is MGR Magic!
