Director Shankar’s Nanban has got off to a flying start. The movie starring Vijay, Ileana, Srikanth and Jeeva has been well scripted with an universal theme of aiming big and pursuing what your heart calls for, that has become a hit with the youth. Throwing light on the poor education system prevalent in the country, Nanban has all the ingredients for making a long run at the theaters.
The movie released to packed cinema halls two days before Pongal day i.e last Thursday the 12th. As the family audience enjoyed an entertaining release, Vijay fans across the state celebrated with big cutouts of their hero decorated in garlands outside movie halls. As per records, Nanban scored a total of 15 crores in the first day itself, and made a strong run in the following days, right through the Pongal weekend. Being a brave remake attempt of the Hindi movie 3 idiots, Shankar and Vijay fans assured a record run for Nanban. The first week collections stand testimony to the fact, with Nanban collecting 57 crores from Jan 12th -16th, that’s just 5 days. Composer Harris Jayaraj too is delighted to add another special movie to his credits as he thanked his fans, “I thank everyone for your overwhelming response for our film Nanban.”
