    Endhiran is set to be India’s biggest blockbuster


    Rajinikanth starrer Endhiran has finally arrived, with a bang. We all know how the advance booking for the first two weeks in Chennai went out within minutes of the ticket counter opening, how people queued up to watch 4am shows on the Friday of release, and how audiences have been going berserk in cinema halls at the antics of their favourite star.

    What remains to be seen, however, is whether India’s most expensive film ever – at a budget in excess of Rs150 crores – will be able to earn back its investment and make profits. Early reports indicate that it most certain will accomplish the gargantuan feat.

    Sun Pictures, the owners of the film, are reported to have already earned Rs210 crores, clearly making a profit. “In the case of South films, things work differently,” explains trade analyst Amod Mehra. “Sun Pictures, who hold the satellite rights themselves, has made a handsome profit on the film.”

    Even if we look at the box office prospects of the film, it seems like Endhiran is set to be the biggest hit in the history of Indian cinema. “The films should earn a nett amount of Rs35-40 crores in only the south territories over the first weekend itself,” says Komal Nahta, editor of Film Information, adding that he’s only talking about the Tamil version.

    “Then there are the Telugu versions, Hindi versions and the business that should come from the release of the Tamil version in other parts of India and overseas.”

    The biggest Indian grosser of all time, 3 Idiots, earned a total nett amount of Rs202 crores from box office receipts. Endhiran seems set to break that record, mainly due to Rajinikanth’s appeal that goes beyond south India to many parts of the world, all of where the film has reportedly opened to packed houses. Screens in the US, Europe, Japan and Malaysia are all seeing unprecedented crowds for an Indian film, even Asian films.

    “In places like Dubai, the fan frenzy is said to be unmatchable. Plus, in major south Indian cities, ticket prices have been hiked to unbelievable amounts – from Rs1500 to Rs3000 – in spite of which, shows in every cinema hall are House Full for the next 10 days,” says Nahta.

    While the Telugu dubbed version of the film, Robo, has had a phenomenal opening as well, the Hindi dubbed version, Robot, has opened to average collections. “Having said that, the most a dubbed Hindi film earns is a little over a crore. Robot, the Hindi version, itself should do a business of over Rs10 crore. Now, that is saying something,” says Mehra.

    It’s the magic of ‘Superstar Rajini’, after all.

    I suggest ppl see this clip from his movie Annamalai.

    Its been almost 12 years since this came and I have seen this movie countless times...yet I get goosebumps everytime I see this scene and the style,background score really rocks.

    YouTube - Annamalai - Rajini becomes the new President of the Association


    I suggest you dont say it within Tamil Nadu borders for your own good. :lol:

    if there is one man i'm most comfortable with the title of super mega star, that's rajini. most ppl don't know that apart from being a terrrrrrriiiiffficc entertainer, he's also a GEM of a man. He really has no controversy (no shooting of black bucks, hit & run), eats boiled vegetables for lunch and is genuinely a very humble and friendly guy. 5 Gold Stars to someone who hasn't let success go to his head. I'm watching that movie in the theatre one way or the other. My no.1 star.

    @ gowthamraj,
    I watched the movie yesterday night

    well my verdict is only a 2/5

    My theme of the movie is taken from I Robot about artificial intelligence going wrong
    Some of the graphics were looking extremely comic,specially the robot talking with mosquitoes,the fire sequence and at the end were the multiple robots transform into a single one
    And they spoiled the sci fi sequence with to much Indianization,Robot falling in love was the last thing i liked to see

    Paathen da.....Mullukka mulukka Shankar padam...Rajini padam maariye illa.
    Onnu rendu scenla thaan anda mass irunduchu.

    Enakku ennamo Shivaji ida vida nalla irunduchunu thonudhu...Adu sema mass ah irundudhu...idu appadi illa.
