Last Friday saw the release of two highly anticipated films, 36 Vayadhinile(36 Vayathinile) and Purampokku Engira Podhuvudamai. It's now time to check out their individual box office collections.
I said these two movies were highly anticipated, which they
were, because of certain genuine reasons. As we all know, 36

On the other hand, Purampokku boasted of a brilliant
casting and since it was SP Jananathan's film, some kind of
social message was expected out of it, its unique title also helped
in garnering some interests among fans.
With both these movies clashing at the box office, it is indeed
a matter of interest to know which film has managed to come out on
top, not just here but also in the overseas.
In Tamil Nadu, both these movies have done well so far. But what
has come across as a surprise is that Purampokku has
managed to surpass 36 Vayadhinile as far as the collection
Though Purampokku is a multi-starrer, Jyothika's
comeback movie was expected to rule the box office here as it is a
feel good movie. But thanks to good word of mouth,
Purampokku has come out strong.
However, the scenario changes when we look at the overseas
collections. Take a look at the slides below for detailed
box office collections of Purampokku Engira Podhuvudamai
and 36 Vayadhinile.
