Chennai Box-Office: February 14 to 16

The Valentine Day in a way boosted ticket sales at Chennai Box-Office. On Friday, young couples flooded the theatres especially multiplexes, which helped the two Tamil youth-oriented releases – Naan Sirithal and Oh My Kadavule.

Hip Hop Adhi’s Naan Sirithal due to his personal popularity took a good opening and grossed Rs 1.15 Cr and is the clear number one. Though the rom-com with a message carries average audience report, it is collecting well.

The big surprise at number two is the rom-com Oh My Kadavule, which has brought romance back with a very impressive three day Valentine weekend gross of Rs 85 Lakhs. The film with upcoming stars like Ashok Selvan and Ritika got rave reviews and a cameo by Vijay Sethupathi helped it to get that opening.

In the third place is Vijay Deverakonda’s Telugu film World Famous Lover which carried mixed reports but average collections. And in the fourth place is the Oscar winner the South Korean film Parasite. At number five is Love Aaj Kal 2, which has not taken a good opening.

Chennai Box-Office: February 7 - 9

The footfalls are nothing great this week at CBO, as the content is not so exciting. Jiiva’s mass masala Seeru due to its day one opening piped past its immediate rival to be the number one at CBO with a gross of Rs 56 lakhs.

At the number two position is Mani Ratnam produced Dhana directed Vaanum Kottattum, which after a slow start picked up and has grossed Rs 55 lakhs. In the third place is the comic book big Hollywood actioner Birds of Prey.

Mysskin’s Psycho continues to hold tight at number four and in the fifth place is 1917 The Movie, which is having a good run at CBO.

 

Chennai Box-Office – Jan 31-Feb 2

The footfalls across cinema halls in Chennai City were low as the content was not attractive. Santhanam’s Dagaalty on day one took an OK opening but was WOM was negative and collections started dropping from Saturday. Still, it has managed Rs 62 lakhs in three days and is number one this week at the CBO.

Mysskin’s Psycho holds strong due to weak new releases and is able to attract the multiplex audiences and is at number two position and has grossed Rs 2.41 Cr in 10 days.

At number three place is the Hollywood action-comedy Bad Boys For Life, which took a decent opening and grossed Rs 34 lakhs in three days. In the fourth place is Nadodigal 2, which had a late release on Saturday and carries mixed reports. Rajinikanth’s Darbar holds on to number five position.
