Vadachennai 5 days box office report

Dhanush’s recent release ‘Vadachennai‘ is scoring all time high. The first 5 day weekend collection (Wednesday to Sunday) only for Tamil Nadu is Rs.36 crs gross, and Rs.27 cr Nett collection. This is considered to be highest collection for any Dhanush movie till date. The movie is getting all good reviews by fans and general audience. Though a late release this year for Dhanush the movie is doing really good in boxoffice.

Dhanush got his much needed breakthru in the name of Vadachennai and Lyca’s success story continues in the second half of 2018.

Vadachennai which released yesterday on 17-10-18 for the pooja holidays is doing very well with critics and audience both giving the movie a thumbs up. This is the third superhit release from Lyca after Kolamaavu kokila, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. Vadachennai opened day 1 in Tamilnadu with record breaking gross beating Dhanush’s previous best Maari by a mile.

It is also to be noted the movie is certified ‘A’ and the makers did not compromise on the movie and went with A certificate.. We will have to wait and watch if the certification by any ways affect the inflow of family audience and the movie overall box office in Tamilnadu. In foreign box office like Singapore, UK where Tamil movies does well,the movie certification plays a huge role in attracting family audience with children (based on age)

But the movie is praised extremely well with the movie goers and some critics even giving their highest score for this movie, Vadachennai is surely to be in top 10 movies of 2018
