Wednesday, 25 May, 2011, 12:07

Pirates in English and Tamil released in a dozen screens and got the bigger screens in the multiplexes. Another major advantage was Ethan getting postponed at the last minute. Pirates took over those screens and made a killing.At number two is Ko, which is rocking the metro and is sure to come back to the number one position next week, when there are no major releases.In the third position is Vaanam which is steady at the multiplexes. And in the fourth position is Kandaen, which just could not take an opening. Azhagarsamiyin Kudirai has been getting critical acclaim and is in the fifth place.
