It was supposed to be the big weekend at the CBO as Rajinikanth`s Kochadaiiyaan was slated for release. But unfortunately the film`s release got postponed at the last minute.
Taking cue two films advanced their release date - Yaamirukka Bayamey released on Friday and Santhanam`s Vallavanuku Pullum Aayudham on Saturday. Due to the last minute rush, VPA started only from noon - shows in many places.
Vallavanuku Pullum Aayudham due to its wide release in Chennai city and suburbs, got an edge and is the number one at CBO this week. The film grossed nearly Rs 45 lakhs in two days, which is not bad for a film which released on Saturday.
In the second place is the horror-comedy Yaamirukka Bayamey. It did well due to good word of mouth, which worked well in multiplexes. At number three is Vaaya Moodi Pesavum, which is a multiplex hit and continues to hold on well.
The Amazing Spider-Man has taken a big drop in its second week and is at number four. And in the fifth place is Yenammo Nadukkathu, which has picked up due to good word of mouth.
