Chekka Chivantha Vaanam And Nawab Boxoffice Report:
Here is good news that all Mani Ratnam fans are waiting to hear from a long time. The legendary director has got a hit after a gap. The opening weekend collections of the latest outing from Mani Ratnam, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has ensured that it is a hit.
The multiple star cast film featuring Aravind Swamy, Simbu, Arun Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi in crucial roles has won the audience mandate. The racy thriller style narrative and the bold, unexpected climax have bowled over the audience.
If Chekka Chivantha Vaanam sustains well from the first Monday, it will be heading towards a Super Hit status. Mani Ratnam hasn’t had a big success in a long time. Ok Kanmani is the only other film of his that fared well in the last decade. Raavanan had opened well, but failed to sustain, in between.
Meanwhile, the Telugu version Nawab is a disaster. The reports are positive, but the audience turnout has been surprisingly muted. The total lack of local presence is the reason for the response, many feels. At specific B and C centres, the movie was replaced after three days; it was that poor.
