Vishal's Paayum Puli released yesterday after facing a last minute demurral from some theatre owners. As it turned out, the protest that created a lot of fuss, helped the movie to earn itself an unintentional promotion at the right moment which might reflect in the box office collection of Paayum Puli by the end of its first weekend.
So will Paayum Puli be a success at the box office?
Well, it might be a moderate success as the movie has garnered
reviews from critics and movie goers.
But trade analysts think otherwise as they have predicted that
the movie might have enough in it to be more than just a mediocre
success at the box office.
Suggesting that the film might do really well at B and C centres
for its good stunt sequences and intense second half, experts have
also revealed that the movie's performance at A centres is
something that might bother its producers.
With tough competition from Jayam Ravi's Thani Oruvan
and all the other upcoming films that will be released in the
consecutive weeks, Paayum Puli's chances at the box office
looks a touch fragile at the moment even after considering all the
valuable inputs from trade experts.
