Written by Selvaraghavan and directed by Gitanjali Selvaraghavan, Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam, which was released on January 1st 2016, received average to positive reviews from critics. But will that help the movie at the box office? Trade analysts think so.
Starring a host of newcomers, the film gained popularity because of Selvaraghavan's involvement in the project and rightly so. In that context, the film will have its own set of audiences and thus might collect big by the end of its opening weekend (first three days).
But, thanks to a bold attempt by the husband-wife duo, Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam might fail to pull in family audiences into cinema halls and that might turn out to be the biggest drawback of this film, in terms of its box office collections.
Considering all these factors and valuable inputs from trade experts, Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam might gross close to 6.5 Crore rupees from its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu alone.
The capital city Chennai is expected to contribute handsomely towards the overall collections of the movie, which is produced by Kola Bhaskar.
