2 Days Total Box Office Collection of ‘Remo’
Sivakarthikeyan’s Remo has opened to positive reviews and registered an earth-shattering opening at the Tamil Nadu box office. The movie was released on Friday, October 7, and it has done fantastic business on its first day at the collection centres. Remo was released in over 400 screens in Tamil Nadu. It had a good pre-release talk, which helped the film get a massive response for advance booking. Cashing in on the hype, exhibitors had early morning shows in many centres and this played a major role in its success on the opening day.
Generally, they have early morning shows only for the films of A-list actors. The trade reports say that Remo enjoyed over 70 percent occupancy on the first day and many have declared that it has become the third bigger opener of 2016 after Rajinikanth’s Kabali (Rs 21.5 crore)and Vijay’s Theri (Rs 13.5 crore). It has reportedly beaten Vikram’s Iru Mugan, which had minted Rs 5.5 crore on the first day. However, the exact collection made by Remo has not been revealed. Some unconfirmed reports say that it has earned a little over Rs 6 crore.
The film has been released big in Kerala and some foreign countries too, where it has made decent collections. On its opening day with overall 30-35% of occupancy, Kapoor & Sons had minted the amount of 6.85 crores on Indian screens. Sivakarthikeyan starrer “Remo” witnessed a good jump at the box office on Saturday Still the film has reported the business of 7.25 crores* on Saturday and made its 2 days total as 13.25 crores* at domestic box office.
Remo clashed with Vijay Sethupathi’s Rekka and Prabhu Deva and Tamannaah Bhatia’s Devi. All the three films have garnered good reviews. But it has to be seen how the movies perform in the next few days. The trade experts are predicting all the three flicks will do well, considering a long weekend. Coming back to Remo, it is a romantic-comedy film, written and directed by Bhagyaraj Kannan and produced by RD Raaja. Sivakarthikeyan’s performance and decent story are said to be the highlights of the Tamil flick.
