Kalakalappu has emerged as a surprising winner at the Tamil Box Office of this year. The movie made with the minimal budget is doing wonderful business, thereby bringing smiles on the faces of the makers of the film.
The film was released in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in 259 screens on May 11. Having received good reviews from the critics and favourable word-of-mouth, the movie has managed to collect Rs 5 crore plus in its first weekend.
Adding to that there wasn't any other release, which helped the movie to make good business, claims a trader. The movie witnessed an average of 85% occupancy in the first weekend and it remained same on Monday (May 14).
UTV Chief Dhananjayan Govindan said, “The responses for Kalakalappu have been extremely good and it is doing well at the Box Office considering the fact that the movie does not have a big star cast and made with the medium-budget.”
