Selvaraghavan's 7-G Rainbow Colony has stormed the Chennai box-office with a 100 percent opening in four huge theatres with a combined seating capacity of 4608 seats. The film with a newcomer as hero has taken a superb opening like a superstar film, and is holding on very well on Monday.

Chiranjeevi's Shankar Dada MBBS which has opened in two theatres was only able to take 76 percent opening and collected Rs 9, 74, 408 with tickets priced at Rs 100 and Rs 70, the film has fallen by Monday!

At the third position, we have Giri followed by M.Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi and Bose at the fourth and fifth position. Vishwa Thulasi which also released this Friday is a total wash out, with the theatres refusing to divulge the collections as they are very poor!

Film Cast Pluses Minuses Trade fact

7-G Rainbow Colony
Ravi Krishna, Sonia Agarwal Solid story with good presentation. Yuvan's music and Sonia's performance. A contrived ending and the length of the film. Has taken a bumper opening all over Tamil Nadu. The distributors will recover their cost in the first week itself.

Shankar Dada MBBS
Chiranjeevi, Srikanth, Sonali Bendre, Paresh Rawal Mega Star Chiranjeevi A pale remake with lot of mass elements added to suit the image of its hero. The distributor may break-even in Chennai, as it opened in two huge theatres.

Arjun, Reemma Sen, Ramya, Vadivelu Front benchers get all what they need. Lots of action and glamour.
A cliched story with predictable story and proceedings. Due to strong measures taken by government against the video pirates the film is doing well.

M.Kumaran Son of Mahalakshmi
Ravi, Nadia Moidu, Asin, Prakash Raj, Vivek Nadiya Moidu and Ravi combination as mother and son. They are the
lifeline of the film
Too mushy in the second half which is highly melodramatic In Chennai collections are steady with family audience appreciating it.

Srikanth, Sneha, Kalabhavan Mani Well choreographed action scenes and Srikanth's convincing portrayal as a commando. A cliched story with a predictable ending. Since the film was sold at a very low price, distributors will break even.
