Bala's disciple and debutant director actor Sasikumar's Subramanyapuram becomes the classical blockbuster of this season and even sidelined the mega budgeted Dasavatharam in the very third week of its release.
Though Dasavatharam has already become a hit in Tamil, the average inflow of viewers in the 5 week of its release has diminished a lot and most of the theaters are waiting for a suitable replacement for Dasavatharam. Currently, the film is showing at 14 theaters in Chennai and 9 out of them will change the film at the time of Kuselan release.
Subramanyapuram is screening at 6 screens in Chennai 15 screens in outer Chennai, but the average inflow of viewers is 100 percent for all the shows! Especially, in Shanthi and Udhayam many viewers returned with disappointment due to the unavailability of tickets for the night show on Tuesday. After seeing this overwhelming response, the distributors decided to screen the film in 3 more theaters in the city.
In week days also, the film manages with 100 percent attendance and has already collected its entire budget even at the end of its second week run in Chennai city and suburbs only.
