As per early indications Nanban leads the Pongal race, as it opened two days before Vettai on January 12. Nanban has netted a record Rs 2.27 crores in four days at CBO, which is outstanding. Vettai which opened on January 14 too reported 95 % opening for the first two days, which is fantastic.

At number three is Mahesh Babu`s Telugu entertainer The Businessman, which due to shortage of screens has opened in limited screens and has taken 95 %opening.

In the fourth place is Kollaikaran the third Pongal release which opened in limited screens. And in the fifth position is Mounaguru, which continues to do good business in multiplexes.
