MovieCrow Box Office Report - March 25 to 27
The long Good Friday weekend saw the release of three notable Tamil movies, namely, Thozha, Zero and Valeba Raja. Also, Hollywood film Batman V Superman was ruling across multiplexes in the city. Check out the box office ranking of Tamil movies in Chennai during last weekend.
Thozha, starring Karthi, Nagarjuna and Tamannah in the lead roles, opened to positive reviews from the critics and the movie also struck a chord with the audience. Although Thozha is the official remake of French movie 'The Intouchables', director Vamsi Paidipally has made sure that the movie appeals to the sensibilities of Tamil audience. The movie is likely to become a hit at the box office.
Director Shiv Mohaa's Zero took a decent opening and received fairly positive reviews, thanks to the unconventional and intriguing screenplay. We will have to wait and see if the movie maintains the momentum.
3. Valeba Raja
Sadly, the successful KLTA combination of Santhanam and Sethu couldn't attract audience to the theaters for Valeba Raja. The crowded weekend at the box office had further deteriorated its prospects.
Vijay Antony's Pichaikkaran and Vijay Sethupathi's Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum were still successfully running across a handful of screens, while last week's release Pugazh had lost majority of screens to new releases.
Upcoming week's releases
Darling 2, Hello Naan Pei Pesaran and few more lesser known films will be hitting the screens on April 1.
