Tharai Thappattai 1st Day Box Office Collection
Maverick filmmaker Bala is back with his latest film “Tharai Thappattai”, starring Sasikumar and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar. The Tamil film has been released today on the occasion of Pongal. It is a special movie for Bala for a few good reasons and mainly because his association with maestro Ilayaraaja for the movie marks the latter’s landmark 1000th film as a music director. Also, he has directed his protégé Sasikumar, who had worked as an assistant director to him in classic “Sethu”, in “Tharai Thappattai” for the first time.
The trailer and other promotional materials clearly indicate that it is a hard-hitting emotional film. Adding to that, the audio has become a big plus point for the film as this has helped the film to have a positive vibes around it. “Tharai Thappattai” has Satish Kaushik, RK Suresh, Amudhavaanam, Kaavya Shah and others in the cast. Chezhiyan has handled the cinematography department while G Sasikumar has edited the flick.
Anyhow, Story of the film as Like his usual films, Bala has taken a backdrop that are not touched by many mainstream filmmakers. This time he has churned out a story about karakattam (It is an ancient folk dance performed to woo rain goddess Mariamman) dancers. Sannasi and Sooravali are in love but the hero decides to sacrifice his relationship wishing that his leading lady marries a government servant to lead a better life than them. But he pays a price for his decision as he realises that she leads a miserable life.
The remaining part of “Tharai Thappattai” is about how he seeks revenge against baddies in dreadful manner. We expect Tharai Thappattai to get above average response with more than 35% occupancy on major cities of India. Tharai Thappattai will definitely get a good opening despite ‘Dicator’ is a strong competitor that is releasing on same day. Due to good review and strong word-of-mouth opening day total box office collection of Tharai Thappattai movie may rise up to Rs 4.50 Crores*.
