Ranking based on Chennai Box Office Collections from Nov 25th 2011 to Nov 27th 2011


5. Thambi Vettothi Sundaram

Inspired by a true story, Thambi Vettothi Sundaram has had good potential to be a riveting watch if only the director had focused on his characters and added a dash of credibility to them. Despite Karan and the powerful performer Anjali's presence, Thambi Vettothi Sundaram lags in terms of its lack of credibility.

Trade Talk:
Rural centers are providing respite from the hands down the urban centers provided.

Public Talk:
A not-so-brilliant attempt for Anjali after the successful Engeyum Eppodhum.

No. Weeks Completed: 2
No. Shows in Chennai over this weekend: 27
Average Theatre Occupancy over this weekend: 20%
Collection over this weekend in Chennai: Rs. 78,240
Total collections in Chennai: Rs. 24 Lakhs

Verdict: Below Average Opening


4. Vithagan

Parthiban's 50th film has Parthiban directing himself. The movie has an interesting first half and a far too fetched second half. Parthiban and Poorna's performances are the highlights.

Trade Talk:
The movie has had a below average opening and sustaining the same will be a mighty task.

Public Talk:
Poorna looks so much like Asin!

No. Weeks Completed: 1
No. Shows in Chennai over this weekend: 120
Average Theatre Occupancy over this weekend: 25%
Collection over this weekend in Chennai: Rs. 5,71,222
Total collections in Chennai: Rs. 38 Lakhs

Verdict: Good Opening


3. Velayudham

Vijay's Velayudham might not have had anything novel or special, but it's a no holds barred commercial attempt nevertheless. Vijay has Hansika and Genelia to romance.

Trade Talk:
Velayudham is the Diwali winner with theaters registering good turnout - both by Vijay fans and general viewers alike.

Public Talk:
Chillax!

No. Weeks Completed: 4
No. Shows in Chennai over this weekend: 174
Average Theatre Occupancy over this weekend: 35%
Collection over this weekend in Chennai: Rs. 12,25,585
Total collections in Chennai: Rs. 7.50 Crore

Verdict: Hit


2. 7aum Arivu

Call it Sci-fi or fantasy Murugadoss's 7aum Arivu could raise the bar that was set by him in his earlier movies. This being Shruti's first Tamil film, she has done an impressive job of stringing the movie together with her performance.

Trade Talk:
The movie is going strong in urban centers with patronage from Suriya fans.

Public Talk:
All Murugadoss needed was consistency in his story throughout the end, as brilliantly as it was started.

No. Weeks Completed: 4
No. Shows in Chennai over this weekend: 177
Average Theatre Occupancy over this weekend: 45%
Collection over this weekend in Chennai: Rs. 17,52,853
Total collections in Chennai: Rs. 8.37 Crore

Verdict: Hit


1. Mayakkam Enna

As the brother duo Selvaraghavan and Dhanush is back with the former spinning a tale of love and longing, as intense as it is enjoyable. Albeit receiving reviews that the movie's pace is slow, Mayakkam Enna has its heart in its place and the slow pace is totally warranted.

Trade Talk:
Releasing to full houses over the weekend, Mayakkam Enna is likely to extend its might for another couple of weeks with good collections.

Public Talk:
Its kolaveri for Dhanush all over!

No. Days Completed: 3
No. Shows in Chennai over this weekend: 438
Average Theatre Occupancy over this weekend: 90%
Collection over this weekend in Chennai: Rs. 97,09,345

Verdict: Good Opening
