Sivakarthikeyan's Remo has emerged victorious at the Chennai box office. The Tamil movie has continued to make good collection in its second weekend, while the business of Devi has seen a decent growth in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
Remo, which had minted Rs 1.71 crore from 366 shows in its first weekend, has raked in Rs 1.27 crore in its second weekend, reports Behindwoods. It indicates that the Tamil movie has retained good viewership to take its 10-day total tally to Rs 4.82 crore.
It is a very good number for a Sivakarthikeyan film and it has already got the hit status at the Chennai box office.
The collection of Prabhu Deva's Devi has seen a decent growth as the movie earned Rs 43.01 lakh from 165 shows in its second weekend. The flick had earned Rs 37.8 from 141 shows in its first weekend. The 10-day collection of the movie stands at Rs 1.24 crore.
Vijay Sethupathi-starrer Rekka has been pushed to the third place and the business of this flick has seen a huge dip. The movie raked in Rs 28.39 lakh from 156 shows in its second weekend after earning Rs 65.72 lakh from 219 shows. The 10-day total collection stands at Rs 1.44 crore.
All the three movies enjoyed decent to great occupancies for the prime-time shows on Saturday and Sunday as no big Tamil films were released last weekend, say trade reports.
Coming back to other films, Hollywood flick Inferno had 102 shows in Chennai from which it has earned Rs 23.75 lakh. The business of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has completely slowed down as the film earned Rs 6.09 lakh from 39 shows in its third weekend to take its total collection to Rs 2.16 crore from two versions (Tamil and Hindi).
New movie Ammani has won the appreciation from the critics and the movie had just 12 shows in Chennai in its first weekend, from which it has earned Rs 1.08 lakh.
