The Tamil Puthandu weekend (April 12 – 14), for the first time ever did not have any major releases. The two little known films which released, does not even feature in this week`s CBO!
The big holiday weekend was uneventful as collections were nothing much to write about. The IPL matches also ate into box-office collections, especially the last ball nail biting CSK victory over RCB on Saturday night.
Added to that Tamil Puthandu (April 14) special films on television like Thuppakki, Naan Ee and OKOK kept the audiences glued to their homes on Sunday. In short it was not a weekend for movies at the CBO.
However last week`s Settai which carried mixed reports, due to lack of strong opposition and UTV`s aggressive promotions continues at the number one slot. In the second place is Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, which is holding well.
At number three and is NTR`s Telugu hit Baadshah, which did well in the Ugadi weekend. Chennaiel Oru Naal, is holding well in `plexes and is at number four. In the fifth place is the action packed Hindi film Commando.
