Dhanush has all the reasons to celebrate as his Uthamaputhiran took the best opening among Diwali releases.
The film has become a hit largely due to the family audiences, who are loving the feel-good factor and comedy in the film.
The film has netted approximately 58 lakhs in three days from Chennai city and another Rs 67 lakhs from Salem area, which the trade feels is a good opening.
It is hat trick victory for Dhanush-Mithran combination.
The producers Mohan Apparao and T Ramesh of Balaji Studios are likely to cover their cost and turn profitable in the first week itself. Says T Ramesh: "Uthamaputhiran is a universal hit and it has taken the best ever opening for a Dhanush film in the overseas market. The film is a hit as it catered to family viewers and the comedy of Dhanush and Vivek is being cheered".
Abirami Ramanathan, who is distributing the film in Chennai city and Salem area said: "Uthamaputhiran has taken the best opening among all Diwali releases. It is working as it is a typical festival film and bringing in the family audiences. The Dhanush-Vivek Comedy is the highlight of the film".
