Corrections & Amplifications : As per the daily tracking of Box Office in the first 4 days of Naan Sigappu Manithan achieved Rs.7.3 Crores while MK achieved Rs.3.5 Crores during the 2nd long weekend. In Chennai city, Maan Karate has done higher box office collections as it occupied bigger screens and more screen counts than Naan Sigappu Manithan.
1. Maan Karate
In spite of the new release, Sivakarthikeyan's Maan Karate managed to hold its ground well. The movie has found immense level of support from family audience due to Sivakarthikeyan's popularity and Anirudh's chart-buster songs. Although the movie received mixed reviews similar to Sivakarthikeyan's earlier movies, trade sources have already declared Maan Karate as a hit.
2. Naan Sigappu Manithan
Vishal's Naan Sigappu Manithan opened to mixed reviews, in which Vishal's performance and Thiru's screenplay in the first half were unanimously praised. However, the second half may be too brutal for family audience to take in. Thanks to the extended weekend, the movie has taken a good opening.
3. Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavanigalum (OKMK)
The collections of OKMK has taken a huge dip, as many screens have replaced the movie with Maan Karate and Naan Sigappu Manithan. In spite of the innovative script and positive reviews, the movie could not sustain at the box office due to lack of star power and weak promotions.
There are 4 other movies that are occupying around a handful of screens in key locations are Nendunchalai, Cuckoo, Thegidi and Nimirnthu Nil.
Upcoming week's releases
Vadivelu's comeback vehicle Thenaliraman and Vaibhav's Damaal Dumeel are hitting the screens on April 18.
