and Powerstar's Kanna Laddu Thinna
Aasiaya (KLTA) has got a flying start at the Box
Office. The film, which was released on January 13, has emerged as
the Pongal winner with the film recovering the production cost in
the first three days itself.
The Tamil film, which was competing with Alex Pandian
and Samar, made six crore rupees in three days.
Udhayanidhi Stalin of Red Giant, on a rare note, disclosed about
the business made by KLTA. He wrote, KLTA first 3
days collection for TN theatrical is Rs 6,80,65,560 and distributor
share is 3,75,98,768!"
The failure of Alex Pandian and the confusions over the
release date of Samar made people to divert their
attention towards KLTA. This eventually guaranteed a good
collection on the opening day. But what worked well was the good
word-of-mouth, which is doing wonders for the movie.
Santhanam and the Powerstar's performance with a decent story
are the highlights of KLTA, which also features Sethu,
Vishaka Singh, VTV Ganesh, Kovai Sarala and others in the cast. The
film, which was released on 205 screens, is the first Tamil winner
of 2013 at the Box Office.
