What the all India trade calls “the Eid (Ramzan) previous” can now be seen in Chennai and certain other pockets in Tamil Nadu.
Traditionally, the weekend before Ramzan festival (Aug 31) is the weakest all over the country, as box-office is at an all-time low.
Anyway two more small releases are there in Tamil. Bharath’s Yuvan Yuvathi will clash with RK’s Pulivesham in a dozen Chennai screens.
The only big release if you can call it is Conan The Barbarian-3D in English and Tamil, which is releasing in more screens than any new Tamil releases!
Meanwhile all eyes are on the August 31 Ramzan line-up of biggies- Ajith’s Mankatha, Salman Khan’s Bodyguard etc. All theatres in Chennai city are gearing up for it.
