Vishal has been doing well in the industry with his last two films having turned out to be successful projects. It needs to be seen if the actor will end the year by scoring a hit with "Poojai." The box office status of the film is expected to be known in a few days.
Nerungi Va Muthamidathe
Lakshmy Ramakrishnan's "Nerungi Va Muthamidathe" has taken a below average opening with the film grossing over ₹3 lakh at the Chennai box office. It witnessed average theatre occupancy of 35 percent during the weekend.
Limited screens, low key promotions and lesser known actors might have resulted in the film getting poor openings. Moreover, Diwali releases "Kaththi" and "Poojai" are holding on to major screens which might have also affected the film's business.
However, the thriller drama has received good reviews from the critics. It needs to be seen if the positive word of mouth helps the film fetch decent collections in the coming days.
