It happened yet again. While there were only two movies going steady at the box office last week, it has zeroed in on to just one this week (making our lives easier for a weekly countdown). No rewards for guesses though. Superstar's movies always ruled the charts however it is one of these days when no other movies dared to stand before his latest attempt - Sivaji. Superstar reigns the box office and how? Without a company that is. Well, all we have to ask is, does it ever get lonely at the top?
Cast: Rajnikanth, Shriya, Vivek
Direction: Shankar
Music: A.R.Rahman
Production: AVM
Released date: June 15

So what if it is two weeks now ever since Sivaji had been released at the cinemas. The initial excitement has not drained yet and if you could lay your hands on a ticket without much effort consider yourself lucky. Such is the exhilaration Sivaji has generated among fans and public alike. The media hype was worth every bit of it; the fans gathering in front of the cinemas scream so. Not many are satisfied with their first rendezvous and are turning repeat audiences to catch a second glimpse of the superstar. After all these festivities do not happen often.

Trade Talk:
Miracles happen but not often, trade tends to say. May be once in two years? It has been a long time this kind of money is churned out of a movie in Kodambakkam. And going by the recent trade reports, the cash flow isn't going to take a rain check at least for the next couple of months or so.

Public Talk:
The theatres just could not contain the excitement of an ordinary fan who is bursting into shrieks and whistles whenever the superstar makes his appearance on the screen. What if the critics thought the movie is plagued with Shankar's 'one man social crusader' theme, fans are definitely not complaining. Well, they get to see their icon only after a couple of years and his irrepressible charisma is all over the movie. A back-to-back entertainer with a younger superstar, what more can a fan ask for? They seem to have obliged and are letting their hair down at the halls.

N.O. Weeks Completed: 2.
N.O. Shows in Chennai over the last week: 756.
Average Theatre Occupancy over the last week: 96 %.
Collection over the last week in Chennai: Rs.1.92 crores.
Total collections in Chennai by end of the third weekend: Rs.4.07 crores.
