Viswasam box office collection day 2 ajith film

Thala Ajith’s latest offering Viswasam is ready to break box office records. Often called the ‘King of openings’ by fans and trade pundits, the mass entertainer has had a bigger opening than Rajinikanth’s Petta at the Tamil Nadu box office, according to trade analyst Ramesh Bala.

“#Pongal2019 Tamil Releases – Day 1 Box Office Update: #Viswasam has taken a bigger opening than #Petta at the TN Box Office..#Petta has taken bigger opening than #Viswasam at the Overseas Box office..,” Bala recently shared on Twitter.

Despite featuring big stars like Nayanthara and Ajith, the movie’s storyline has failed to make a positive impression on critics.

“The interval sequence is the most important part of a big commercial film. No matter how dull and routine the first half was, if the director manages to end it on a high-voltage note, it will revive the audiences’ faith in the filmmaker. It encourages them to return to their seats after a short break even as they know deep inside their heart that, usually, they will have to suffer another hour and a half of dull and routine moments. Director Siva couldn’t even conceive a decent interval sequence, promising a better second half,” Indianexpress.com’s Manoj Kumar R said in his review of the film.

Written and directed by Siva, the movie also features Jagapathi Babu, Anikha, Vivek, Yogi Babu. Viswasam had hit theaters on January 10.
