Chennai box-office – (Jan 26-28 ): Sify.com
Pokkiri rules and is the clear number one by a mile! Its hold over the CBO is amazing. In its third weekend, the film is still drawing 95 percent! At number two this week is the multi starrer Salaam-E-Ishq, which opened in four huge screens with combined capacity of over 4500 and by day two started dropping. In comparison Mani Ratnam’s Guru is still the hottest show in town, and is steady at 85 to 90 percent during this weekend.
Dhanush’s Thiruvilayadal Aarambham continues to rock, and has become a favourite with the family audience. Though GK films have boosted the publicity of Thamarabharani, it has not reflected in the collections and is at number five.
