MGR Magan is about In M G Ramasamy (Sathyaraj) who is helping his Theni district village people by treating them with natural homoeopathy medical treatments for generations. The village people call him by the name of the legend MGR because of his helping tendency. He usually takes all the herbs needed for the medicines from the hill that is near his village. A rich businessman residing in the village tries to convert the hill to a quarry using his money and influence. He gets the hill in the auction and MGR files a complaint against this act and his son (Sasi Kumar) does not support him in this case. Father and son get into a heated argument.
