This week's CBO is from January 14th (Saturday) to January 16th (Monday), the three-day Pongal weekend holiday.
Paramasivan has taken the Pongal CBO by storm, with an amazing Rs 30.65 lakh net from six Chennai screens. It is an amazing figure as most of the screens had played daily 5 shows, and it grabs the number one slot.
At number two is Aathi, mainly because it lost Pongal day collections, and number three is Saravana, which also gained due to Vijay's generosity. In the fourth position - just behind - is Zinda which took a good opening. At the fifth position is the Telugu film Lakshmi.
