House full shows, record turnout, laugh riot and that’s Imsai Arasan!!
Shankar deserves all the praise

We may forgive the director for these failings but he must definitely be congratulated for attempting a new path and Shankar deserves all the praise for venturing into a topic which the whole family can relate to and watch together.
Sorry, House full…

The movie witnessed a bumper opening all over the state, that of equivalent to any Vijay or Ajith’s movie and surprised trade pundits. Thanks to the brand name Shankar and Vadivelu’s pulling power.

The movie is now entering the second week of running and it is reported that it is still running to packed houses in many theatre in and around Chennai. Mayajaal which is located at the outskirts of Chennai, screened special shows.
There were many who were returned without getting tickets at Devi complex. The black ticket rate was Rs.150/- here against the original price of Rs.50/-. On weekdays also the show was full in advance booking and it was hard to get ticket on 17th July, Monday evening.

Similar scenes prevailed in Rohini complex and other suburban theatres like Thiruvanmiyur Theagaraja. Kamala theatre witnessed a heavy crowd after a long time. The busy Arcot Road becomes jammed in traffic when the movie show ends here

The echo in Telugu desam

Just as the Tamil public likes charades on its politicians, Telugu fans are equally quick to lap up such fare. After all, politicians as a race are just the same everywhere. Therefore, enthused by Imsai Arasan’s show, producers in Telugu are keen to buy the language rights for the film. It is to be seen whether it would be dubbed or have a new version. Again, director Shankar who produced the film is savvy enough to understand the economics of dubbed Tamil films.
Suresh Kondeti who produced Shankar’s Kadhal as Premiste and Sakhi producer NV Prasad are exploring the possibilities.
Vadivelu as Tenaliraman?

Meanwhile, there are attempts to rope in Vadivelu in another period film – Tenaliraman. Will Vadivelu accept this and strike gold this time too? We should wait and watch.
