Sify Chennai Box office – This week
The big news at CBO this weekend is that King Khan has emerged ‘Number 1’ with his Om Shanti Om collections remaining steady in its second week thanks to multiplexes ( Sathyam, Inox and Mayajaal). Added to that the much hyped ATM collections, are going downhill, which helped OSO, to emerge as a winner in the top slot in five Chennai screens.
And the big surprise is the rise of the dark horse Dhanush’s Polladhavan, which has taken the number two slot due to good word –of-mouth. Please note that it is playing only in single screens or old complexes. It would have been the number one if it had played in multiplexes where elite audiences would have lapped it up. At Pilot in Royapettah, a single screen regularly showing dubbed English films,Polladhavan has netted a record Rs 6.45 lakhs,in its first week more than the Tamil dubbed Spiderman-3 existing record of Rs 5.85 lakhs!
Surya’s, Hari directed action family drama Vel, is not a city film so had a marginal drop but is steady and a winner due to the films collections in B and C centers, and is in the third position. ATM has taken a beating, but is holding on in the fourth place, while Kannanmoochi Yeanada makes an entry in the fifth position only on the strength of its multiplex collections.
