It was a terrible weekend for movies at the Chennai Box-Office. Two big releases Mani Ratnam`s Kadal and his former assistant Bejoy Nambiar`s David were lackluster at the CBO.
Both the films failed to take the all-important opening due to negative talk. Kadal had so much riding on it; a fresh new pair, AR Rahman`s songs and the Mani Ratnam brand, but content was not liked by the audiences. Though it is this week`s number one, the film has failed to take an opening and has taken a beating at the box-office.
At number two is David, a badly dubbed Tamil version added to the woes of the audience, but due Reliance`s smart marketing got a large number of screens. This film also took a lukewarm opening. In the third position is Kanna Laddu Thinna Asai, which is still doing well due to lack of competition.
Race 2 is limping at number four and Life of Pi continues to hold on at number five..
