"Naanum Rowdy Thaan" enjoyed a good occupancy on the opening day. In Chennai, the film witnessed above 60% occupancy, which helped the movie post a good score at the box office.

The simultaneous release of Vikram-Samantha starrer "10 Endrathukulla" affected the business of "Naanum Rowdy Thaan". However, the Vijay Sethupathi starrer received a better feedback from the audience as compared to Chiyaan's film.

"Naanum Rowdy Thaan" is expected to do better business during the Dasara holiday weekend. Even the screen count will be increased during the weekend.

Meanwhile, "10 Endrathukulla" has got a flying start at the box office. On the first day, it earned Rs 5 crore in Tamil Nadu and a total of Rs 6.5 crore from entire India. But, the movie got mixed reviews and we have to wait and see how the film will perform in the coming days.

"Naanum Rowdy Thaan", starring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara, is an emotional comedy. The Tamil movie has been written and directed by Vignesh Shivan. The good screenplay backed with wonderful performance of the lead actors has won the hearts of the audience.
