Pongal releases – the initial Box Office status

Now that the Pongal fever and the initial obsession for the movies are over with, the movies that are in the race are starting to show their true colors at the box office. If initial reports are anything to go by then take our words for it: Pokkiri is emerging as a winner at the box office.
Thanks to the slashed ticket rates Pokkiri had the biggest of all the openings among the Pongal releases. The close competition came in from Ajith’s Aalwar and Vishal’s Thamirabarani. Popular dancer-cum-actor Prabhu Deva’s Directorial debut in Tamil lived up to its pre-release expectations. Reports suggest that the movie is running to packed halls as opposed to the other releases.
Pongal does not seem to be the sweetest time of the year for Ajith. Though the movie opened to full houses on Pongal, the next few days seems to be a let down. It can turn out to pick up in the later days to come. The third movie in the race is Thamirabarani. With diverse reactions at the box office, it is learnt that Thamirabarani is definitely catching up slowly.
Paruthiveeran hasn’t seen the light of the day yet and if good reports and word of mouth of this 25th Jan release gets in motion, the other three movies might have a dent in their collections,
specially in the B & C centers.
