Jigarthanda has been released in about 250 screens. The Karthik Subbaraju directorial movie would have got more number of screens if it had a solo release. However, Sarabham has managed to get 150 screens for its release in the state.
Dhanush's Velai Illa Pattathari is still doing good business and this factor made Jigarthanda and Sarabham to settle with 250 and 150 screens, say traders.
On the opening day, Jigarthanda and Sarabham have done good business. The early trade reports say that in Chennai, the occupancy for the Siddharth's film was above 60% and for the other film it was not up to the mark. We are yet to get the official figures of the first day collections of both the Tamil flicks.
As both the films have garnered good response from critics and audience, the weekend should be good in terms of collections for Jigarthanda and Sarabham.
Jigarthanda, which is a gangster film, features Siddharth, Bobby Simha and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles. Whereas, Sarabham is a myster movie featuring Naveen Chandra, Salony Luthra and Aadukalam Naren in the key roles. On the slideshow, read what fans are telling about these films on Twitter...
