Chennai Box-Office: June 21 to 23

Monday, 24 June, 2019, 07:05

It was not a great week for movies at the CBO, as none of the Tamil new releases impressed. Added to that Vijay Sethupathi’s Sindhubaadh which was to release on Friday, did not make it due to financial issues.

So Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh took a very good opening and is the clear number one by a mile at CBO, this week. The film has grossed Rs 52 lakhs in three days which is fantastic, considering that it is the remake of Arjun Reddy, which was a blockbuster in Chennai city.

In the second position is Toy Story 4, which has taken a decent opening thanks to big IMAX screens and carries decent reports. Thumbaa is the best among Tamil releases as it made a decent 36 lakhs from Chennai city in its opening weekend.

At number four is Game Over, which is a failure at the box-office. And in the fifth position is Dhanush’s Pakkiri, the dubbed Tamil version of The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, which took a poor opening.
