Theatres in Tamil Nadu and other parts of South India are paving the way for the next mass Tamil release of the season. The much awaited Siva Karthikeyan starrer "Kakki Sattai" is getting ready for a release on 27 February, 2015.
As per latest reports, the producer of the movie Dhanush is making sure that no stone is left unturned for the mass release of the movie. Though Dhanush's latest flick "Anegan" and Ajith's movie "Yennai Arindhaal" is running fairly well in theatres around the globe, the makers are trying to fit the movie in maximum theatres possible.
Reports from the industry suggest that the upcoming Siva Karthikeyan starrer has already been assured more than 375 screens in Tamil Nadu alone. With this huge release, industry experts are now waiting to see how the movie is going to perform at the box office.
Most of the experts believe that if this entertainer could manage a decent opening, the film will have a safe run and the producers can expect a good return in their hands. They are also waiting to see whether the latest flick will be able to cover box office collection records of other recent movies like "Anegan", "Yennai Arindhaal", "Kaththi" and "I".
It will be great feat for Siva Karthikeyan if he could surpass the collections of any of these movies, considering the popularity of other stars that are mentioned in the list.
Dhanush's latest flick "Anegan" had a dream run in theatres and has reportedly collected ₹6.55 crore on its first day in India. Ajith's "Yennai Aindhaal" too received overwhelming response in theatres as the movie grossed ₹14.05 crore on the first day in India alone.
Other films like Rajinikanth's "Lingaa", Vikram's "I" and Vijay's "Kaththi" are the biggest openers for Tamil cinema in worldwide box office.
Rajinikanth's "Lingaa" opened to massive collection of ₹37 crore worldwide and Vikram's "I" had earned ₹34.74 crore on the release day from two versions. It is the second biggest opener after "Lingaa". Similarly, Vijay's "Kaththi", which was released last Diwali grossed ₹23.80 crore worldwide. In Tamil Nadu, the movie had earned around ₹12 crore.
Considering the expectations from "Kakki Sattai", many believe that the film is capable of rewriting many box office numbers.
Directed by Durai Senthil Kumar, film is touted as an action-comedy entertainer with all the commercial elements. This is the second time that Siva Karthikeyan has teamed up with director Durai Senthil Kumar after the blockbuster "Ethir Neechal."
