Rajinikanth is back with bang. The four-year break will come to an end with his Kochadaiiyaan releasing worldwide on Friday (May 23). And we are back to the most crucial part of the movie - the business of the flick at Box Office. And the predictions say that the collections of this-year releases like Vijay's Jilla and Ajith's Veeram are set to be broken by the superstar's magnum opus.
On a rare note, a Rajinikanth's movie is releasing with mixed pre-talk. As Kochadaiiyaan is not a regular masala flick, a section of audience have not shown their interest towards the film. For some, the quality of the animation has not impressed. These factors have made traders to be sceptic about the film's prospects at Box Office.
The good news is that Kochadaiiyaan is getting good response all across the globe. The fans of Rajinikanth are buying tickets in huge numbers and the negative feedbacks seem to have not made any impact on them. This is ensuring the film's good business at Box Office on the release day.
Looking at the response for advance booking, traders have confidently said that the Rajinikanth's film will get the biggest opening of 2014 in Tamil Nadu, thereby breaking the records of Jilla and Veeram. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Jilla, Veeram, Kochadaiiyaan Screen Counts
Ajith Kumar's Veeram and Vijay's Jilla had managed to make less than 10 crores on the release day. Those movies were released close to 800 screens worldwide. But in case of Kochadaiiyaan, the screen count has crossed 3500 as of now.
Kochadaiiyaan Surpass 10 Crore Mark Easily
Traders analyse that even if half of the screens ran packed house, Kochadaiiyaan will surpass Rs 10-crore mark at Box Office.
All Three In TN Box Office
Even at Tamil Nadu Box Office, Kochadaiiyaan is likely to make far better collections than Jilla and Veeram. While Vijay and Ajith's films had released in somewhere between 330-370 screens, the Rajinikanth film is hitting the screens in 500 theatres.
Record Number Of Shows
Indeed, at some of the multiplexes in Chennai, there will be record number of shows. In Mayajaal alone, it will have 100 shows starting from 7am to 11 pm.
Mega First Week Guaranteed
Traders end on a positive note that at the least, the film will make thunderous business in the first weekend taking the Rajinikanth's fan following into the consideration.
