"Arrambam" will reportedly release in more than 500 screens in Tamil Nadu for the first two days, after which the screen count will drop to accommodate other Tamil releases, such as "All in All Azaghuraja" and "Pandiya Nadu."
Advance booking for "Arrambam" is phenomenal and the Ajith starrer is expected to get an earth-shattering response on its first day. Some theatres are reportedly planning an early morning show at 5 am to appease the fans.
The film is expected to take a thunderous opening and make good collections, thanks to Ajith, known as the undisputed king of opening. Expectations are sky high for the film as the actor has teamed up with director Vishnu Vardhan for the second time, post the success of their 2007-blockbuster "Billa."
"Arrambam" fever has not just gripped India but is also generating a lot of buzz in key overseas markets including the US, the UK and the Middle East. According to reports, booking for the film is taking place at a brisk pace in these parts of the world.
The Ajith starrer is reportedly an action-packed entertainer with all the commercial elements. "If you want to have a blast, 'Arrambam' is your answer. We have done everything in our power to entertain you and I have to thank my team for that. They are the best!," the film's director was quoted as saying by Behindwoods.
While Ajith's presence will ensure the film a good opening, it has to be seen if it will be able to break records set by the actor's previous films. His 2011-release "Mankatha" had the biggest opening for a Tamil film in that year. Meanwhile, "Billa 2", which released in 2012, gave Ajith his biggest opening in recent years.
Besides Ajith, "Arrambam" has an interesting star-studded cast, including Arya, Nayanthara, Taapsee Pannu and Mahesh Manjrekar, while Telugu actor Rana Daggubati appears in a cameo.
The film's cinematography is handled by Om Prakash and editing is done by A Sreekar Prasad. Its music is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
