Mani Ratnam’s epic project Ponniyin Selvan 2 has had an impressive start, with exceptional attendance during its matinee shows yesterday. The film now ranks as the third highest opener of 2023 in TN, trailing only Thunivu and Varisu, which were released during the Pongal 2023 season.
The impact of PS2 is set to intensify in the upcoming days, as the film will soar high amidst the extended opening weekend and the absence of any significant release until May 12th. With the school holidays underway, PS2 is expected to achieve significant numbers within the first ten days of its screening. It remains to be seen whether it can surpass the first installment’s impressive box office performance, which came close to the 480 crore mark worldwide.
