I was looking forward to Paiyya more than this somehow even if it was by Selva. I just got interested.
dialogue at the very start.
Wow. WOW. I had no idea this film would be as it appears in the trailer. I had only heard the song “Indha Paadhai” or however it is spelled a few months back and figured the movie had already came out.
It been in the making nearly 2 years. Karthi signed the film soon after Paruthiveeran I think. Rumours are that the budget went out of control and the producers didn’t have the money.
Anyway release is on Pongal so they say. Fingers crossed.
omg, I have never heard women speaking like that before in an Hindi film. It’s funny. I love the way the lead guy is comes out of the car too. This looks like Indiana Jones like fun.
Hi bollylove, yeah the dialogue at the beginning is kinda of a shocker. Anyway, film released today.
Sify calls it engaging.
Behindwoods not too impressed
Either way I will be watching it.
Among the four Pongal releases, the big budget Aayirathil Oruvan as predicted by the trade has taken good opening.
Though there had been a lot of negative talk about the film on the first day of release, AO took a super star type opening.
On day-one of its release, there had been a lot of complaints from theatre owners about the length of the film and some of the controversial scenes.
However, director Selvaraghavan trimmed the film by 20 minutes, and all the negative talk slowly evaporated.
In fact, at Kamala complex in Vadapalani area and Maharani in Mint area, the film had houseful shows on day-two; the pressure for tickets is very high.
The Trichy distributor of the film Gjnavel Raja says: ” The negative talk surrounding AO on the opening day has gone after we cut 26 minutes of the films second half. All the controversial scenes have been deleted, and believe me collection of the film is almost same as Vettaikaran and Ayan.”
Says Meenakshisundaram, Manager Mayajaal Multiplex: “AO has taken a bumper opening. We had 39 shows for the film per day and it is going choker- block. The film grossed Rs 7.02 lakhs on day one, which is very good.”
Sources close to the AO unit say that the complaint from the audiences that they have not been able to follow the story in the second half has worked to the film’s advantage as there has been repeat audiences and people are slowly appreciating the grandeur and Selvaraghavan’s guts to try something new.
Meenakshisundaram feels that AO will do very well at his complex during the four day Pongal weekend, as there is tremendous pressure for tickets.
The leading distributor Tirupur Subramaniyam who has taken the film’s Coimbatore- Nilgiri area, says AO has opened big. What is working to the films advantage is the long weekend and holiday season ahead.
Thanks Vijay bro for always updating on Box office stuff.
