Santhanam is one of the most popular actors in Tamil cinema and has impressed countless fans with his flawless comic timing. At present, he is in the limelight because of his latest release Dhilluku Dhuddu 2, which hit screens on February 7, 2019. The lively horror-comedy opened to a good response at the box office and impressed the critics. Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 held its own on Friday (February 8, 2019) and over the weekend, emerging as the top choice of the target audience.
Here is the complete report.
Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 Day 4 Chennai Collections
According to industry tracker LM Kaushik, Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 has managed to collect nearly Rs 1.93 crore at the Chennai box office in four days and emerge as a big winner. The film witnessed good growth over the weekend and beat the competition.
Santhanam Beats Simbu
Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 is currently ruling the Chennai box office. It has beaten the critically-acclaimed Sarvam Thaala Mayam and Simbu's Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven to occupy the top position. The film's solid performance clearly proves that many in the industry had made the mistake of undermining Santhanam's abilities as an actor.
Is This Why Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 Won?
Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven was a big threat for Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 because of STR's star power. However, as the Sundar C directorial never really clicked with the fans or the critics, it failed to even affect Santhanam's film. Sarvam Thaala Mayam is meant for a niche audience and hence did not affect Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 at all.
The WOM Is Positive
The general feeling is that Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 is a pretty lively and entertaining film that features a rib-tickling second half. Most critics have also pointed out that Santhanam and Rajendran's chemistry is one of the biggest highlights of Dhilluku Dhuddu 2. The Word Of Mouth (WOM) is quite healthy and this should help the film do good business in the coming days.
The Road Ahead...
Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 is likely to remain the king of the CBO for a few more days. However, it might slow down when Dev hits the screens on February 14, 2019.
