It is also noteworthy here that ‘Warisu’ and ‘Thuni’ were released on Wednesday 11th January itself. Of these, ‘Warisu’, which was released only in Tamil on Wednesday, was released in Hindi and Telugu on Friday, January 13. Meanwhile, ‘Thuniv’ has been thrilling the audience since day one in both Tamil and Telugu languages. Both these films are not faring well at the box office, but their earnings are definitely better than the average if we look at the last year’s situation.
Now the ‘dog’ can only hope for a miracle
‘Kute’ is the worst at the box office. The film’s viewership was 8-10% on Sunday as well. That means only 8 to 10 seats out of 100 were seen in cinema halls. The film earned a business of just Rs 1 crore on the first day. 1.20 crore on Saturday earnings. But on Sunday, the revenue again fell to 1.05 crores. In this way, ‘Kute’ has achieved a business of Rs 3.25 crore in the first weekend.

‘Naya’ is faring worse on Monday morning shows. In theaters, out of 100 seats, the audience is found in only 5-6 seats. In such a scenario, it is clear that only a miracle can sail this film’s boat now. But producers who don’t spend much on pre-release promotion or don’t promote much seem to be abandoning the film with the help of OTT.
‘Warisu’ beats ‘Thuniva’ in opening weekend
On the other hand, Dalapati Vijay’s ‘Warisu’ and Thala Ajith’s ‘Thuniv’, which hit the theaters on Pongal day, are witnessing a tough clash. At first it seemed that ‘Thuniv’ would win this race but now ‘Warisu’ has the upper hand in 5 days. Vijay’s film collected Rs 87.25 crore in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages in five days. On Sunday, ‘Warisu’ did a business of 20 crores, which includes Hindi collection and 1.55 crores. ‘Warisu’ is sure to join the 100 crore club on Monday. However, it should also be noted here that ‘Thuniv’ is obtained in two languages while ‘Warisu’ is obtained in three languages.

The condition of ‘Warisu’ in Hindi is not so good either. However, it is definitely better than the Bollywood release ‘Kute’. ‘Warisu’ collected Rs 70 lakh on its first day in Hindi on Friday. 1.40 crore on Saturday earnings. 1.55 crore in the Hindi version on Sunday. In this way, ‘Warisu’ has collected 3.65 crores in its first weekend in Hindi. ‘Kute’ collected 3.20 crores in three days.
