Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari’s most awaited film Kaatru Veliyidai hit worldwide big screens on Friday, April 8th, which also released in Telugu as Cheliyaa. The film received mixed reviews from film critics and audience. But, It has made good openings at worldwide box office especially in Tamil Nadu. Kaatru Veliyidai is romantic thriller filled with love and war, directed and produced by Mani Ratnam himself.
The story is not all that great however the screenplay is good. One thing which I found was different in this movie was the Hero’s (Karthi) character. He isn’t the chocolate hero that you are looking for in a romantic movie. He has a quirky character in this movie but has made justice to it. The characters suit the cast aptly.
The film was released in 1400+ screens worldwide. It has witnessed 90+ occupancy in Morning shows in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Now, The film is expecting to gross over Rs 10-12 crore from the Domestic Box Office. The witnessed houseful in morning shows in in most of the multiplexes & Single screens in Tamil Nadu & few parts of Hyderabad.
Now, The film is expected to collect between Rs 8 to 12 Crores in domestic box office on the first day. Kaatru Veliyida is produced by Mani Ratnam himself under his production house, Madras Talkies, while Popular producer and distributor Dil Raju presenting the Telugu version ‘Cheliya’ under his banner, Sri Venkateswara Creations
