Nanban next only to Enthiran!

Nanban, the Tamil comedy drama film and official remake of hindi '3 idiots", directed by kollywood's biggest revenue generating director Shankar, has become the second highest grosser film in Tamil cinema history only after Enthiran.

According to trade circles, the film went on to collect the highest ever numbers generated by a Vijay starrer movie and became a huge and first blockbuster of year 2012.

Asick Meera of Mariyam Pictures who purchased the TK area distribution rights of the movie described the collection of Nanban as follows, “After Enthiran, Nanban is the only film that drew repeat audience and at times performed on par with Enthiran”.

Sivakumar of Cosmo Village Pictures, the distributor for Coimbatore & Nilgiri area said "The gross collection of Nanban from the 4 circuits is around Rs. 5.5 crores and it is a feat as only Enthiran has managed to surpass in the recent past which went on to collect Rs. 8 crores”.

Considering Enthiran's widest release all over the world in general and tamilnadu in particular, what Nanban has done is phenomenal by any yardstick.

As per Gemini Film Circuit (GFC), the producers of the movie who were wise enough to purchase the tamil remake right, Nanban fared exceptionally well in Tamilnadu, Kerala and overseas and still going strong in Madurai and coimbatore areas and according to GFC Nanban has shown nothing less than phenomenal performance in the Madurai and Coimbatore belts.

Though Nanban gave testimony to the fact that Vijay is one of the biggest stars in Tamil film industry with an assured opening but the most notable and striking factor that emerged from both Enthiran and Nanban was that Shankar is the biggest brand in south indian cinema not to mention the bollywood.

Year 2012 augurs well for the tamil cinema industry which has not seen many blockbusters in the recent past. Without a doubt this year opened well as far as kollywood is concerned as both Nanban and Vettai did extra ordinary business at the box-office.

Let us hope that this trend continues for the rest of the year in such a manner that it benefits all that are involved in the huge industry.
