Chennai weekend box-office (Feb 04-06)

Tuesday, 8 February, 2005, 05:17

It was Black magic at the Chennai box-office. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's critically acclaimed Black netted an incredible Rs 9,52,000 net from two screens with Satyam alone netting Rs 7,07,000! Vijay's Tirupachi is way down at number two position having netted just Rs 6,27,000 from four screens in Chennai city.

Close on its heels at number three we have Kalignarin Kannamma which has become a "must-see" for DMK cadres in the city. The Sanjay Dutt-Ashwarya Rai-Zayed Khan snooze inducing Shabd took a good opening but has fallen by Monday is at number four and the biggest surprise packet is Udayananu Tharam, the Mohanlal starrer which has shown an increase in its collections more than its opening weekend collections at Sangam!
