Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bollywood movie Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela has done wonderful collections at the Box Office. But it is not the same in Tamil Nadu Box Office. The Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's flick has managed to make decent business in the first weekend in the state.
According to traders, the response for Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela on the release day in Chennai was not up to the mark. It was mainly because of the Sachin Tendulkar factor. As the cricket legend was playing his last test of his life, people stayed glued to TVs.
Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela banked heavily on youth turn out in Chennai and traders were expecting to make good collections in the first weekend. But it did not become a massive hit in TN because of many factors, believe the industry insiders.
Traders analyse that the currently running successful movies in cinemas did not allow Ram Leela to get a stupendous opening in Tamil Nadu. And also new release Pizza 2: Villa, which opened up to positive reviews, played spoilsport for the Hindi flick.

Ram Leela, A Big Release

Low Turn Out For Ram Leela
While Ram Leela had a low turn out on the release day in the city at major screens, the response on the weekend was better.
Arrambam Affects Ram Leela
Ram Leela was mainly affected by already running successful flick Arrambam starring Ajith Kumar.
Movies That Affected Ram Leela
Other movies like Krrish 3 and Pandiya Nadu did not help the cause for Ram Leela. Not to forget the affect of Hollywood flick Thor: The Dark World.
Ranveer No Match To Khans
Traders also point out that Ranveer Singh is not an A-list actor and one cannot expect Ram Leela to make business like the movies of Khans (Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman Khan). The establish actors will always guarantee you to pull audience in the opening weekend.
All these have made Ram Leela to make decent business in the opening weekend in Tamil Nadu.
Future Looks Better For Ram Leela
However, Ram Leela, which has got a positive reviews from various quarters, is expected to better the collections in Tamil Nadu in the coming days following the good word-of-mouth.
So far, Ram Leela has made Rs 61 crores at the Indian Box Office and has reportedly made close to Rs 90 crores worldwide.
