Studio Greens Paruthiveeran, the debut film of Karthi directed by Ameer has taken a fantastic opening all over Tamilnadu. The audience especially in Madurai, NSC, Tiruchi and rural areas are treating it like a Thiruvizha(festival).

In Chennai city, Coimbatore considered as A+ area the film is neck-to-neck with Mozhi, which too has taken a good opening in urban areas. What has happened is that Paruthiveeran and Mozhi to a certain extent has eaten into Pachaikili Muthusaram second weekend collections. Paruthiveeran has collected a whopping Rs 3.69 Crore net from 92 prints in Tamilnadu, in its opening three days. The word-of-mouth on the film is very good, mainly in rural areas, and the viewers seems to have fallen in love with Karthi and Priya Mani.

Meanwhile the violent rape scene in the climax of the film has been trimmed voluntarily by the producers themselves. Says Gjanavel Raja of Studio Green, the producer of the film:" Paruthiveeran has taken a Ghajani like opening and has the potential to be a super hit. We have considerably trimmed the rape scene in the climax, as per initial request from the viewers and theatres screening the film. In the second week we will be increasing the number of prints, on the demand of our distributors."
