A total of five films graced this theatres this Deepavali.
Thanks to the State government for doing away with pirated VCDs and the fact that all five films stars being popular actors, there has been a good collection at all the theaters where these movies were screened.
The festive day followed by a weekend and Ramzan has meant a huge queue in all theatres. In spite of showers, people have thronged the cinema halls. Though all the movies have been doing a good-business, the real contest at the box-office seems to be between Ajith's comeback film Attagasam and Silambarasan's Manmadhan.
Both the films have opened to maximum number of theatres in the State. The two movies are expected to send the cash registers ringing in the coming days. Ajith in Attgasam looks cool and confident and may emerge as the number one in the race.
Following these two would be Sarath Kumar's Chatrapathy while Vijayakanth's Neranja Manasu, though had a fantastic opening, has very little prospects of continuing the good flow.
Last in race would be Dhanush's Dreams, which is about adolescent love story. Unlike other Dhanush's ventures, Dreams has not had a good opening.
As of this opening week, it's between Attagasam and Manmadhan.
