Simbu’s action masala entertainer, Kuthu, a remake of a Telugu hit has taken a decent opening all over Tamilnadu. In its opening weekend (April 2 to 5) the film has taken 84 per cent collection, though critics find it to be a “low class mass masala”.
Simbu can heave a sigh of relief as his solo film has an opening which the trade says is better than his arch-rival Dhanush’s last film Puthukottayilirundu Saravanan. Kuthu is expected to do better in B and C centres, where there is an audience for such action masala films.
Srikanth Deva’s songs are being appreciated by the masses and now Simbu can take full credit for the success of this solo hero film and now slot himself as a ‘saleable star’.
