Comedies reaped gold for Tamil cinema - Exclusive

on Dec 18, 2013

Tamil film industry had nearly 200 releases this year, producing the maximum number of hit comedies. In this vast scape, comedy proved to be economically successful at the Tamil box office, with the exception of a few commercial outings in other genres.

Comparatively, Kollywood has more number of hit comedies in 2013. Powerstar's Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasiya, Pandiraj's Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, Dhanush produced Ethir Neechal, Vijay Sethupathi's Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara, Siva Karthkeyan's Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Siddharth's Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru directed by Sundar C are few to name.

"The most profitable films have been those made on a budget of Rs.5 crore to Rs.8 crore. For instance, 'Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasiya' which was made on a budget of Rs.3 crore earned about Rs.12 crore, while 'Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam' earned a profit of Rs.23 crore on an investment ticket window, it wasn't a big success as the budget itself is Rs. 90 crores. Suriya, Hansika, Anushka starred Singam 2 has surprisingly managed to mint over Rs.50 crore in the first few weeks of its run," Trinath said.

"Fox Star Studios-produced and debutant Atlee Kumar directed romantic-drama Raja Rani featuring Arya, Nayantara, Jai and Nazriya Nazim was another surprising Tamil hit of 2013. Arya's Raja Rani managed to collect over Rs.50 crore during its lifetime at the Tamil box office," said Trinath.

Some big-budget duds in Tamil included Vijay and Amala Paul''s Thalaivaa directed by AL Vijay, Bharatbala's first film as a director Mariyan with Dhanush and Parvathi Menon and Alex Pandian with hot on-screen pair Karthi and Kajal Agarwal.

The above given is a sneak of Tamil films performance at the box office during the 12 months of 2013 and way2movies will be back soon with complete Kollywood hits and flops list of Rs.7 crore," as per trade analyst Trinadh.

"If you were to calculate on return on investment, Siva Karthikeyan and Sri Divya starred Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam is undoubtedly the biggest Tamil hit of the year, which brought in huge profits to producer Dhanush's Wunderbar Films" he added.

Big-budget, star-studded films such as Ajith's Arrambam, Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam and Suriya's Singam 2 also managed to rake in the moolah.

"While Kamal Haasan's magnum opus Vishwaroopam may have minted over Rs.100 crore at the ticket window, it wasn't a big success as the budget itself is Rs. 90 crores. Suriya, Hansika, Anushka starred Singam 2 has surprisingly managed to mint over Rs.50 crore in the first few weeks of its run," Trinath said.

"Fox Star Studios-produced and debutant Atlee Kumar directed romantic-drama Raja Rani featuring Arya, Nayantara, Jai and Nazriya Nazim was another surprising Tamil hit of 2013. Arya's Raja Rani managed to collect over Rs.50 crore during its lifetime at the Tamil box office," said Trinath.
