50 days of Kollywood's TN Industry Hit Viswasam
Thala Ajith’s mega-blockbuster Viswasam, directed by Siva and produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, completes 50 days in many centers (said to be 125) across TN today, and also in some outer-TN markets. The film is the highest Kollywood grosser in TN, collecting more than 130 CR in the state. The lifetime theatrical share of Viswasam in TN will be close to 75 CR. It's next only to Baahubali 2 when it comes to TN gross and share. Thala Ajith and Siva have notched their biggest Hit together after their previous successes like Veeram and Vedalam. They've made a superb comeback after the forgettable Vivegam in 2017.
Viswasam will have it's Telugu and Kannada dubbed versions releasing in March. Whether the film can cross the 200 CR gross mark worldwide, depends on how the dubbed versions perform. The main reason for the massive success of Viswasam is its wholesome family appeal; the father-daughter sentiment clicked big time. There have been numerous viewers who felt emotionally overwhelmed in the climax. The ‘Kannana Kanney’ song has given a long-standing identity to Viswasam. Thala fans have had a ball dancing to ‘Adchi Thooku’ in theaters. D. Imman has delivered a sound score for the film.
