Chennai Box Office (January 18 to 20)

Wednesday, 23 January, 2013, 05:11

At number two is Samar as more screens and shows were added and word of mouth is decent. In the third place is Alex Pandian which has turned out to be below average due to negative talk.And in the fourth place is the rock steady Kumki, which is still bringing in family audiences. Life of Pi still continues to bring family audiences in multiplexes, especially after it got all those Oscar nominations and is at number five.
