Check out the box office collection report of Atharvaa's "Irumbu Kuthirai", Suriya's "Anjaan", Vijay Antony's "Salim" and Ashwin Kakumanu's "Megha."
The Atharvaa starrer has taken a decent opening, despite receiving negative reviews from critics.
"Irumbu Kuthirai" minted ₹47.39 lakh in its opening weekend at the Chennai box office. The film witnessed average theatre occupancy of 60 percent in Chennai, reported Behindwoods.
"Irumbu Kuthirai" hit screens on 29 August, but the film opened to poor reviews from critics. However, the long weekend (29-31 August) seems to have helped the film amass decent collections. It needs to be seen as to how the Atharvaa starrer fares on week days.
Directed by Yuvaraj Bose, "Irumbu Kuthirai" has Atharavaa playing the role of a biker. The film also has Priya Anand, Johnny Tri Nguyen, Raai Laxmi, Devadarshini and Jagan in supporting roles. It is produced by AGS Entertainment and the music is composed by G.V. Prakash.
Suriya's "Anjaan" has been declared average. The film, which released on 15 August, received fantastic openings at the box office. However, negative reviews have affected the film's business and it witnessed a drop in collections. The gangster flick has minted over ₹4 crore at the end of the third weekend in Chennai and is still being screened in several theatres across Chennai.
Directed by Lingusamy, "Anjaan" has Suriya appearing as a gangster. The film also has Samantha, Soori, Manoj Bajpai, Dalip Tahil and Vidyut Jamwal in pivotal roles. The film's music is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and UTV Motion Pictures, Thirrupathi Brothers have produced the big budget entertainer.
Vijay Antony's "Salim" has fetched decent reviews from the critics. The film also took an above average opening and minted over ₹43 lakh in the first weekend at the Chennai box office, reported Behindwoods.
Of all the new releases that hit the screens on Ganesh Chathurthi, "Salim" is the only film that has managed to get good feedback from critics. Positive word of mouth is likely to help the film rake in some decent collections at the box office.
Directed by N.V. Nirmal Kumar, "Salim" has Vijay playing the title role. Aksha Pardasany plays his love interest, while R.N.R. Manohar and Swaminathan appear in supporting roles.
Ashwin Kakumanu's "Megha" has taken a poor opening at the Chennai box office. The film was released less number of shows and earned only over ₹68,000.
"Megha" hasn't got favourable reviews and the film doesn't seem to stand a chance against other new releases at the box office.
