Arun Vijay is getting a lot of love from the audience for his new release Thadam which is being acclaimed as a top-notch crime thriller. The twists and reveals towards the end are turning out to be a huge crowd favourite and the film is seeing progressively better collections in its opening weekend. While it grossed 23 lakhs on Friday in Chennai city, the Saturday gross leapt to 33 lakhs, for a 2-days Chennai gross total of 56 lakhs. After Thadaiyara Thaakka, Yennai Arindhaal, Kuttram 23 and CCV, Thadam marks one more successive hit for Arun in Tamil cinema. He is most certainly making all the right moves over the past few years.
The other new release 90 ML is polarising the audience; while the youth and feminists have taken a liking to the film, a majority of viewers have either taken offence to the film or found it hardly engaging. 90 ML has certainly created a sensation on social media. The film took the early lead over Thadam on Friday but the latter quickly took over the lead on Saturday. 90 ML has grossed 58 lakhs in Chennai city after the opening 2 days (30 lakhs on Friday and 28 lakhs on Saturday).
It looks like Thadam will win the race in the long run. We shall keep you posted.
