The team of Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal is on a real high. The anticipation around the film is touching unprecedented high in business circles. The movie, touted to release quite dramatically on Valentine’s Day weekend, as of now, has been charted into 252 release centres in Tamil Nadu. The enormity of this number can be gauged from the fact that Nanban had released in 268 centres on January 12. Thus, the reception that MUK is now receiving is nothing short of awesome for a film featuring a hero who is just one film old. With such a wide release, Atharva and his heroine Amala Paul are surely set to go several notched higher with MUK. Debut director Elred Kumar too is set to have quite a high flying start to his career. A lot of the excitement surrounding the movie is being attributed to the chartbusting music scored by G.V.Prakash Kumar which has been a rage ever since its release. Also, the fact that MUK carries the banner of RS Infotainment, a production house that has given hugely popular movies like KO and VTV, has worked as an added advantage.
In fact, the Valentine weekend is a momentous one for RS Infotainment as they will have both MUK and Ekk Deewana Tha (the Hindi version of VTV) releasing on the same day.
The rights for MUK all over Tamil Nadu have been snapped up by four major distributors who went for the film after watching it. it is reported that they compared the Atharva-Amala combination to the evergreen combinations like Kamal-Sridevi and Rajni-Sripriya. They also made quite a nostalgic comparison of father and son; stating that while Murali was renowned for his soft romantic films, his son looks to be going one step further with romance.
With such a grand reception on the business front, MUK is all set to make Valentines Day special for the Tamil box office.
