MC Box Office Report - April 17 to 19
The distributors and theater owners are happy as both OK Kanmani and Kanchana 2 took a very good opening last weekend. It's been a long time since more than one film received positive response(s) from the audience in a particular weekend. Check out the box office ranking of Tamil films in Chennai during last weekend.
1. Kanchana 2
Raghava Lawrence's Kanchana 2 was a sheer delight for single screen owners. The movie registered sold out shows across the city, especially in areas like Tambaram and Chrompet. The mixed reviews don't seem to bother the fans who seek entertainment.
2. OK Kanmani
Mani Ratnam is well and truly back with a contemporary tale of love and romance. The overwhelming reviews, stellar acting and rich technical values made the movie an instant hit at the multiplexes. Expect love-struck people to fill the theaters this week too. However, family audiences are apprehensive about watching the film with their family, due to live-in relationship subject. It might take some time before they trust that the movie has nothing controversial in it and can be enjoyed with their families too.
3. Komban and 4. Nanbenda
Both these movies were running across most of the multiplexes and a few single screens. These movies were lapped up by movie-goers who failed to grab tickets for the latest releases.
Anegan, I, Rajathandhiram and Chennai Ungalai Anbudan Varaverkiradhu were screened at one theater each as noon/matinee show. Meanwhile, Hollywood film Furious 7 overhauls Avatar and becomes the highest grossing Hollywood film in India.
OK Kanmani and Kanchana 2 will enjoy uninterrupted run until May 1, when movies like Uttama Villain and Vai Raja Vai would take up all the screens.
