We are here to make sense of all that we hinted
above. Vel, Surya-Asin-starrer, directed by Hari
seems to be doing well across all centers impressing
both the youth and family audiences alike, with
an interesting blend of action, romance and comedy.
Coming a close second is Kannamoochi Enadaa, which
is being well received by family audiences in
the urban centers. Now the anticlimax. The most
expected film of the festive season, Azhagiya
Tamil Magan opened very well in all the centers
during the weekend but come Monday and theatres
are reporting poor response for advance booking.
Sources say that it might slip to the fourth place
in the coming weeks. At the fourth place, right
now, is Polladhavan, which is the dark horse that
is picking up with good word of mouth spreading
around in all centers across the state and analysts
feel it has the potential to emerge the winner.
However, Machakaaran seems to be the lone loser
this time with an unimpressive opening and not
so encouraging word of mouth response either.
In just a week after Deepavali, the box office
has witnessed turmoil of sorts. With more movies
getting ready for the post-Deepavali frenzy, get
ready for bigger upsets.
Wait for our top ten ratings to get the clear
picture by the close of this weekend.
