We had earlier predicted that Vijay Sethupathi's latest release Sethupathi, which released along with Jayam Ravi's Miruthan on 19th February, may go on to collect close to 4 Crore rupees at the Tamil Nadu box office by the end of its opening weekend (first three days).
Looks like we got our equations almost right as the film, portraying the Soodhu Kavvum actor as a cop, has reportedly collected 3.5 Crore rupees from the whole of Tamil Nadu.
In Chennai city alone, Sethupathi is said to have gathered a decent 70 Lakh rupees (approx) from its opening weekend.
Expect the film to do well in its second week as well as it is expected to pull in family audiences, thanks to the good word of mouth the SU Arun Kumar directorial has managed to achieve.
Meanwhile, Jayam Ravi's Miruthan has turned out to be a money-spinner. Though an experimental flick, Miruthan seems to have cashed in on the new experience it has managed to present the Tamil audiences with.
By amassing a whopping 8 Crore rupees (approx) from Tamil Nadu alone, the Shakti Soundar Rajan directorial has exceeded its box office expectations by a long way, at the end of its first weekend.
In Chennai too, Miruthan has fared exceedingly well by grossing an impressive 1.2 Crore rupees, according to a report.
