Two prominent Tamil movies Amma Kanakku and Metro, released in cinemas last Friday (June 24). While Amma Kanakku was directed by debutante Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, Metro was helmed by Ananda Krishnan of Aal fame.
So, how is the box office prospects of both these movies in Tamil Nadu? Well, according to trade experts, Amma Kanakku might fare better than Metro as the former has more chances of attracting family audiences.
Metro has its own restrictions as the film is certified 'A' by the censor board and hence might find it difficult to keep the cash registers ringing through out the weekend.
Having said that, Metro has managed to garner excellent critical reviews, which might propel its chances at the box office, especially in A centres.
Going by the theatre occupancy on its first two days (Friday and Saturday), The Shirish-Bobby Simha starrer might gather close to 6.5 Crore rupees from its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu alone.
Amma Kanakku on the other hand might garner 8 Crore rupees (approx) in Tamil Nadu, from its first three days.
