Far below, in the second position, is the Sasikumar-directed Easan, which has dropped and carries mixed reports.Holding a premiere (albeit after the release) seems to have worked for the 3D film Chutti Chathan, which has picked up in its second weekend and is at number three.At number four is the evergreen hit Enthiran, and in fifth position is Band Baaja Baaraat, which is turning out to be a dark horse at the box office.
