Two prominent Tamil films made their way into theatres yesterday (Nov 27th). While Inji Iduppazhagi had an impressive star cast, including the likes of Arya, Anushka and Prakash Raj, Uppu Karuvaadu was awaited by many movie buffs as the film had a certain Radha Mohan against the director's name.
Though Uppu Karuvaadu managed to gather positive reviews from fans as well as critics, Inji Iduppazhagi, even after attracting average reviews, might fare better at the box office, according to trade experts.
What might work in favour of Inji Iduppazhagi at the box office is Anushka's charm and acting skills which subsequently might attract family audiences into theatres.
Going by the guesstimate of trade experts and theatre owners, the Anushka starrer might gross around 8 Crore rupees in Tamil Nadu alone, from its opening weekend (first three days).
On the other hand, Uppu Karuvaadu is predicted to amass close to 6.5 Crore rupees from its home state. However, box office collections of the Radha Mohan directorial is expected to stay steady throughout its second week, while Inji Iduppazhagi might lose its way gradually, according to trade sources.
