Tamil action-drama Pichaikkaran, starring Vijay Antony, has been officially declared a hit, with the film netting over Rs 5 crore at the box office in its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu.
“Till Tuesday, the film has done a business worth Rs 5.75 crore. It has already earned its distributors profits and is expected to continue performing well throughout the week,” said trade analyst Trinath.
Directed by Sasi, the film is about how far a son will go to save his mother from impending death. “The mother sentiment angle worked wonders with the masses while the rest of the commercial elements appealed to the masses,” said an elated Sasi, adding that actor Vijay Antony needs to be lauded for playing a beggar.
Produced by Vijay Antony, the film also stars Satna Titus.
