Last Friday (July 1), two prominent Tamil movies had swooped into cinema halls across Tamil Nadu. While Jackson Durai was a horror-comedy, Appa was a social oriented drama.
Now, it is time for us to check out the box office prospects of both these movies over their opening weekend (first three days).
According to trade experts, Jackson Durai, which has been directed and produced by Dharani Dharan and MS Sharavanan respectively, might surpass the box office collections made by Appa, by the end of its first weekend.
The movie, which stars Sathyaraj, Sibiraj, Bindu Madhavi, Karunakaran and Rajendran in key roles, might go on to gather close to 6.5 Crore rupees from the whole of Tamil Nadu, it is said.
On the other hand, Appa, which has been directed and bankrolled by Samuthirakani, might amass 5 Crores (approx) from its first three days in Tamil Nadu, according to trade analysts.
Appa stars Samuthirakani, Thambi Ramaiah, Namo Narayana and Vignesh of Kaaka Muttai fame in important roles.
