The 12-day total collection of "Naanum Rowdy Thaan" stands at Rs 3.35 crore. The movie has been getting good reviews from celebrities and film critics. Hence, the Tamil flick has made such a huge business in two weekends, say traders.

Vikram's "10 Endrathukulla" has been pushed down to the second place. The Tamil movie could only earn Rs 21.77 lakh from 120 shows and minted Rs 1.65 crore in its five-day opening weekend from 210 shows. The total collection of the film after 12 days stands at Rs 2.23 crore.

The average to bad reviews from critics and audience have played spoilsport for "10 Endrathukulla". Post opening weekend, many big screens have been given to "Naanum Rowdy Thaan".

Tamil and Telugu movie "Rudramadevi" is in the third position at the Chennai box office. The film has collected Rs 2.79 lakh from 21 shows to take its collection to Rs 1.34 crore by the end of its third weekend in Chennai.

Jayam Ravi's blockbuster "Thani Oruvan" had raked in Rs 1.28 from 12 shows. It has collected Rs 6.65 crore by the end of its 10th weekend.

Another Nayantara movie "Maya" had only nine shows last weekend, from which it made Rs 1.16 lakh. The total collection of the Tamil flick now stands at Rs 3.32 crore.
