Trade circles point out that Dhanush’s Thodari, which enters its second week in theatres today, has hugely disappointed theatre-ownes as well as his fans by failing to do well in its very first week.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon and produced by Theagarajan of Satya Jyothi Films, the release of Thodari in theatres was delayed at least on two occasions before it finally released in theatres on 22nd September. The producers didn’t get the much-needed pre-release publicity campaign right as the film’s release remained uncertain (for various reasons) till the very last moment.
Thodari released in more than 350 halls in Tamil Nadu but even the first day’s shows were very dry at most centres. Distribution circles were really shocked that the first day’s shows of a frontline could be as dry as the case with Thodari has been.
The film has been a non-starter not only in Tamil Nadu but in theatres abroad too, thus becoming the most disappointing film in the national award-winning actor’s career with regard to box-office collections. Thus, it can be easily said that Thodari is the biggest failure in Dhanush’s career and we only hope he bounces back with his next film Kodi!
