The anticipation level around the film is damn too high and it also will work as a factor. But there factors that can affect the prospect negatively as well. Because on 14th April, Malayalees celebrates Vishu with their whole family and it can affect the rush of morning shows. If that happens then it will become hard for Theri to beat I. But the hopes around the film is too high and people are waiting for it eagerly.
So that anticipation can make people come to the screens irrespective of all celebrations at home. Young people are the majority of the audience that comes for Tamil films in the first few days. Let’s hope that they will rush to the screens enthusiastically from the morning shows itself.
