After a busy Friday, which witnessed the release of two big movies, OK Kanmani(O Kadhal Kanmani) and Kanchana 2, it is now time to look at the business side of things. Box office collections of both these movies will be crucial and here is our predictions.

While both Kanchana 2 and OK Kanmani  saw nearly 70 percent theatre occupancy in many cinema halls in and around the city on Friday, collections from the opening weekend will depend heavily on how these two movies fare over the weekend.

Ultimately, it looks like both these movies will see profits but which will come out on top is the actual question. Check out the slides below to know the answer.

OK Kanmani Cast & Crew

Produced and Directed by Mani Ratnam, it stars Dulquer Salmaan, Nithya Menon, Prakash Raj and Leela Samson in the lead. While PC Sreeram has handled the camera, AR Rahman has taken care of the music and is edited by A Sreekar Prasad.

Audience And Critics Verdict

Based on the early reviews the movie is termed above average and hence will most probably have a good run over the weekend. Being a Mani Ratnam's movie, it is bound to do well throughout the week as well.

Popularity In Other States

Apart from Tamil Nadu, OK Kanmani is predicted to do well in Kerala for obvious reasons. However, its business in the states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana might not be impressive due to some stiff competition from Kanchana 2

Expected First Day Collections

In Tamil Nadu alone the movie was said to be released in more than 300 screens. With more than 65 percent occupancy(approx) on its first day, the expected collections is around 5.5 crore rupees.

Kanchana 2 Cast & Crew

Produced by Bellamkonda Suresh and directed by Raghava Lawrence, it stars Raghava Lawrence, Taapsee and Kovai Sarala in the lead. While Rajavel Olhiveeran has handled the camera, music is by Leon James, C. Sathya, S. Thaman and Ashwamithra.

Audience And Critics Verdict

Like OK Kanmani, Kanchana 2 has been termed above average with an excellent first half and an ordinary second half. The movie though is said to have enough in it to entertain one and all.

Popularity In Other States

Kanchana 2 has managed to get some attention in all five South Indian states, thanks to its successful prequels. Also the genre of the film might attract more number of audience in all the important cities.

Expected First Day Collections

Having distributed by Sun Pictures, the movie has managed to grab more than 350 screens in Tamil Nadu alone. With more than 70 percent occupancy(approx) on its first day, the expected collections is around 6.5 crore rupees.

Box Office Predictions

Going by the trade sources, in its opening weekend, Kanchana 2 might do a tad better than OK Kanmani as it might attract family audiences'. Another key factor is that people might opt for horror-comedy over romance this weekend as the former might present them with more chills and thrills.

Kanchana 2 apart from doing well in A and B centres will also be loved in the C centre as well. OK Kanmani on the other hand might face the heat later in the week with the support of only A and B centres.
