Action King Arjun's Marudumalai has got a fantastic opening across Tamil Nadu and has even toppled Sivaji- The Boss to reach the top.
The top five Tamil films of the week are:
1. Marudumalai - Director: Suraj. A racy and peppy masala of Arjun that reminds the story line of Ajith's half hearted attempt "Kireedam" but the comedy scenes between Arjun and Vadivelu have gone in the film's favour. The distributor and exhibitors are looking very happy and they have collected half of their investment in the third week of the film!
2. Shivaji – The Boss Director: Shankar. The blockbuster is celebrating its 100th day now and still finds decent crowd on the weekdays and 90 percent turnout during the week ends!
3. Ammuvagia Naan - Director: Padma Magan. The success of this sensitively made film on a sex worker has surprised many. Kudos to the team for their courage!
4. Arya - Director: Balasekharan. Arya, a typical formula entertainer helps Madhavan to come out from his Maddy image and has strengthened his fan base in B and C centers.
5. Urchagam - Director: Ravichandran. The film was released without any fanfare and got an average opening but its collections are getting better by the day.
