Sivakarthikeyan starrer ‘Maan Karate’ gets a big box office swoop on its opening day, with collections believed to be around Rs. 3 crores – though the producer hasn’t revealed the exact amount.
This is Shivakarthikeyan’s third movie and so far it matches collections of the movies of some of the big names in Kollywood. Though occupancy in theatres waned from 90% in the morning to lower numbers during the matinees, the multiplexes recorded good attendance.
The movie also seems to be getting good ‘word of mouth’ reviews and ‘thumbs ups’ from the fans, though the critics have given it mixed reviews.
The movie’s lead female role is played by Hansika Motwani and the pair seems to have good onscreen chemistry. Directed by Thirukumaran and produced by P. Midhun, the film’s music was composed by Anirudh Ravichander.
All this officially makes ‘Maan Karate’ this summer’s first big release. Excellent post production promotions and the success of the pre launched audio seem to have played a big part in drawing crowds to the theatre.
Is this a sign that the talented Sivakarthikeyan might soon make it to that esteemed ‘top tier’ of stars in Kollywood?
