Sivakarthikeyan's "Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam" (VVS) has done good business in India, despite receiving mixed reviews from critics.
"VVS" earned approximately ₹3.55 crore nett on the first day of its release, according to senior film journalist Sreedhar Pillai. The riotous comedy entertainer is expected to perform well during the first weekend, as there are no other Tamil film releases. Moreover, the Ganesh Chaturthi holiday is expected to help in the film's business.
"VVS" had the best ever opening for a Sivakarthikeyan film. The television anchor-turned-actor is on a roll following the success of his last two releases - "Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga" and "Ethir Neechal". His latest release "Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam" could well be a hat trick for the talented actor.
"#VVS has taken a fantastic opening in TN. It is @Siva_Kartikeyan's best ever day 1 opening. It is a hat-trick and he can b called a Star!" Sreedhar tweeted.
"VVS" is about a group of careless youths who are in a tug of war with senior citizens of the village headed by Sathyaraj. Siva appears as the leader of the "Sangam" (youth club), while Parotta Soori plays his sidekick. Debutant Sridivya features as Siva's love interest in the film. Directed by Ponram, "VVS" has Rajendran and Sri Ranjini in supporting roles. Bindu Madhavi makes a cameo appearance as a teacher. The film's music composed by Imman received much appreciation.
The romantic-comedy entertainer has received positive response from film buffs thanks to Sivakarthikeyan and the promotional activities of the "VVS" team. Siva travelled across several places in Tamil Nadu including Coimbatore, Salem, Trichy, Tirunelveli and Madurai. He received tremendous response from fans which has largely worked in his favour.
With no big Tamil releases in the next few days, "VVS" is likely to maintain its business and earn more revenue in the first week.
