Singham-3 First Weekend Collections

Tamil Star Hero Suriya’s Singham-3 (S3 / Yamudu-3) has completed its First Weekend Run (4 Days Weekend) at the Box Office. The movie has got a decent opening in the opening weekend but then it is not up to the costs involved and the movie’s Pre-Release Business. Given that, there are only small films lined up over the next weekend, the movie will be fancying its chances to garner better numbers.
Singham-3 which was supposed to release for Christmas was postponed to January. It missed the Republic Day Release due to Jallikattu Agitations in Tamil Nadu and has finally released in the dull February season. S3 is being directed by Hari who directed the previous films in Singham series. This is the fifth combination film of Suriya and Hari. Malkapuram Shiva Kumar who recently produced Manchu Manoj’s Shourya and Nikhil’s Surya Vs Surya bagged the Andhra and Nizam rights of the film for a whopping 18 Crore. This is the career best price for Suriya in Telugu Cinema Industry.
Given that, the previous installments in Singham series are blockbusters in Telugu as well, the hype in the trade circles is skyrocketing initially but all of it wanned off due to the back to back postponements. Suriya who is without a prominent success for a long time pinned high hopes on this film to make it big at the box office. His last film, 24 is a big disaster in Tamil, even though it performed decently in Telugu. It has to be seen how it ends in the movie’s full run at the box office.
