      Tamil Movies 2020 Half-Yearly Box Office Report: Draupathi, Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal Excel!

      |

      The Tamil film industry has gone through several roadblocks from the beginning of the year 2020. The year witnessed some unexpected incidences in the first half in terms of passing away of several personalities and poor business by the big films. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, Tamil film industry managed to keep their balance with hits and flops.

      Hit Tamil Movies

      Though the year started with a big flop, the later releases performed extremely well at the box office. When we consider the half-yearly box office report, the first two films which comes to mind are Draupathi and Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal which turned out to be the winners of 2020 so far.

      Draupathi

      Draupathi

      Draupathi, directed by Mohan G and starring Richard Rishi and Sheela Rajkumar in the lead roles, turned out to be the biggest earner in Kollywood. The rural drama which released on February 28, is a crowd-funded film as no producer was ready to bankroll the project due to its sensitive content, the fake marriage cartel that took place in 2013. Made with the budget of Rs 4 crore, the film earned Rs 7 crore net at the box office.

Despite clashing with Draupathi at the box office, the film managed to make good numbers at the box office. Directed by Desingh Periyasamy, the Tamil romantic comedy was made with the budget of Rs 6.25 crore. Interestingly, it collected Rs 9.85 crore net at the box office.

After all, Dhanush and Sneha had to learn martial arts for the film. Directed by RS Durai Senthilkumar, Pattas was made with the budget of Rs 18.4 crore and managed to mint Rs 28.05 crore net at the box office.

      Oh My Kadavule

      Released on Valentine's Day i.e. February 14, 2020, Oh My Kadavule impressed the audiences.
