Tuesday, 4 March, 2014, 02:01

The Chennai Box-Office is at an all-time low. None of the recent releases are doing well, footfalls in popular multiplexes are at a record low. If weekends are in the range of 50 to 60%, weekdays are hovering around 10 to 20%!It is the examination season, so it is but natural collections have been hit. Still for the sake of a countdown, here is our list for the week.Aascar Films` Arivazhagan directed Vallinam was given the big screen at the multiplexes, enabling to get an average opening. It is the number one at the CBO this week.In the second position is Thegidi, which is doing decent business in multiplexes and has very positive word-of-mouth. The film since it is playing in smaller screens can be assured of a long run.Udhayanidhi Stalin`s Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal, is able to get the family audiences and is at number three. The film has been exempted from entertainment tax, which has helped the trade. At number four is Bramman and in the fifth position is Goli Soda, which continues to attract family audiences.
