Kollywood witnessed the release of four important movies last week. Though all four flicks (Rajini Murugan, Tharai Thappattai, Kathakali and Gethu) had aroused the interest of movie buffs prior to its release, only few have done exceptionally well at the box office.
Though the exact Tamil Nadu collections of all four films are yet to be revealed, reliable sources have confirmed the box office figures of Sivakarthikeyan's Rajini Murugan in Tamil Nadu.
The Ponram directorial is said to have amassed an impressive 19.5 Crore rupees (approx) from its opening weekend (first four days) in Tamil Nadu alone.
Hailed as the first 'blockbuster' of 2016 by fans and industry trackers, Rajini Murugan is standing tall among other releases in Chennai as well, as it has reportedly collected 96.21 Lakhs.
According to a report from Behindwoods, Bala's Tharai Thappattai has taken the second position in the capital city, by collecting 79.73 Lakhs.
While Udhayanidhi Stalin's Gethu has accumulated 62.64 Lakhs, thereby taking the third place, Vishal's Kathakali is said to have collected 57.91 Lakh rupees, from its first four days in Chennai.
