After the release of Dhanush's Maari, it is now time to turn our attention toward its box office collections. Though it is way too early to determine the official first day (Friday) collections of the movie, based on the trade talks, the first weekend collections of Maari can be predicted.
But the question is, can Dhanush fans alone take up the responsibility of making the film a box office hit? I'm afraid the answer is no, especially considering the strong hostility it will face from Baahubali over the weekend.
But what will work in favour of Maari is its raw nativity and hence the action-comedy entertainer might have overwhelming response in B and C centres.
Also the fact, Maari is the only Tamil film that released just before the eve of Eid, makes it that much more easier for it to cash in on the festive weekend to perhaps fish out lots of dough.
How much can the movie possibly earn from its first weekend? Check out the slides below to know:
