Latest Tamil movie ‘Tholi Prema’ is receiving poor response on working days. The film caught the attention of a good number of audience in the opening weekend but failed to receive similar kind of response from the audiences in week days. Facing box office competition with adjacently released south Indian films, the Tamil language movie is struggling hard to make a sufficient business at Andhra Box Office.
Featuring famous south Indian actor Varun Tej in the leading role, the newly released south Indian film faced average occupancy on first day of its release. Though it was tough for the movie to compete with the Tamil version of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bollywood film ‘Padmavati’, it managed to catch the attention of some people in the cinema halls. Multiplexes in the Tamil speaking states were housefull for ‘Padmavati’, but the latest release succeeded in dominating some theatres in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Padmavati movie did not receive consistent response from the cinema lovers in 2nd week. That’s what benefited the latest Tamil film, which features Sapna Pabbi, Suhasini Maniratnam, Priyadarshi Pullikonda and Vidyullekha Raman in the supporting roles. Film critics praised the movie’s storyline which revolved around the man who is now residing in some foreign country and suddenly reminds of his past love. Plenty of masses responded to the film with a positive feedback.
The romantic film expected minor hike in the public response on Saturday. The movie could receive highest response on 2nd and 3rd day. Receiving a huge response from people, the Tamil film managed to earn Rs 8 crore in the opening weekend. Including the overall income earned on Sunday, the film’s business crossed double digit box office figure in initial three days. However, the movie did not meet up filmmakers’ expectations of earning more than Rs 50 crore in the first weekend.
Beating all other adjacently released films which released on 10th February this year, ‘Tholi Prema’ achieved good rank in the list of highest opening weekend grosser Tamil movies of year 2018. After Suriya’s latest film ‘Thaana Serndha Koottam’ impressed the fans of south Indian film industry by earning record-breaking box office income, Varun Tej’s latest movie, with its amazing box office collection, earned more respect for the industry. It will be quite interesting to see whether it continues to earn steady monetary profit by the end of first week.
