The big surprise is that Kathal has managed to not only survive the Pongal onslaught but managed to be at the second position. Subhash Ghai's Kisna which is a flop has managed to be at the number three position in Chennai city due to its good opening.

Box-office top 5

1 Tirupachi

Trade Facts : After taking a fantastic opening, the film has started sliding in the second week.

Director :
Trade Facts : The film is drawing huge family audience and from Chennai alone it may collect Rs 80 Lakhs, its production cost!.

A contrived climax and slow narration in the second half.
