Silambarasan's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, which was released in theatres on September 15, earned decent reviews from critics and moviegoers. The makers had officially announced the other day that the movie has collected ₹50.56 crores from across the world from its first four days of release.
However, an audio clip of leading exhibitor-distributor Tirupur Subramaniam which has been doing the rounds on social media says otherwise. The veteran said that the Tamil film industry is going through a phase of lull and that exhibitors have pinned their hopes on Ponniyin Selvan and Naane Varuvean.
Contrary to what team Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu has been claiming, Subramaniam noted that the film is doing just average business at the box office. He also added that the situation of Arun Vijay-starrer Sinam is no different. This revelation from the distributor-exhibitor has left many cinephiles stunned.
A fan war between fans of Dhanush and Silambarasan, too, erupted on Twitter after the audio clip went viral on the social media platform. Many even started comparing the performance of Thiruchitrambalam and Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu at the box office. With only 10 days left for the arrival of Naane Varuvean and Ponniyin Selvan, the trade is looking forward to knowing how much the Gautham Menon directorial would collect in the final run.
A few aspects of the gangster drama have been garnering appreciation from various quarters. The makers have recently informed that the movie's second instalment will be made as a proper pan Indian project which will release simultaneously in five languages.
However, they are yet to announce the tentative release date of the second instalment. While the first part focused on Muthu's rise as a don from a naïve village boy, the second part is expected to explore his life as a cold-blooded gangster.
