Kolaigaran maintained its impressive opening week momentum and sustained well in its 2nd weekend too. The impact of India vs Pakistan cricket match was obviously there on Sunday’s collections but Kolaigaran was still the top film in TN in its 2nd weekend too, despite the release of three new films such as Game Over, Suttu Pudikka Utharavu and Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja. After 10 days, Kolaigaran has grossed 13.5 crores in TN, with the Chennai city gross being 2.04 crores. At the recent success meet of the film, veteran producer T.Siva predicted that Kolaigaran will get a lifetime TN share of 8 to 9 crores. That very much looks on the cards now! But after the release of films such as Sindhubaadh and Thumbaa on Friday, Kolaigaran will definitely see a hit in its screen count and will play with a restricted show count across the state. The Kolaigaran makers are also pretty happy with the response to the Telugu dubbed version of the film, Killer, which had a simultaneous release on June 7th.
Kolaigaran is a whodunit crime mystery thriller directed by Andrew Louis, with Vijay Antony, ‘Action King’ Arjun and debutante Ashima Narwal in the lead roles. 7 years after his under-rated first film Leelai, Andrew has left his mark in a completely different genre and has emerged as one of the directors of note in the industry.
The success of the film also puts Vijay Antony back on the map of salable heroes in Kollywood. He has a slew of films in his kitty, and recently signed on for a grand big budgeted action thriller with director Vijay Milton. The shooting of this new film is expected to be wrapped in a single stretch. Agni Siragugal, Thamilarasan, and Kaaki will be the composer-actor’s other upcoming releases.Read More
