Even while the Dewali countdown continues to be ticking in, Surya-starrer ’7am Arivu’ has set a box-office record!
Soon after the bookings opened up up for ’7am Arivu’, all tickets were offered out for any entire week, well, this did not come like a surprise because the film is among the two most anticipated films this Dewali together with Vijay’s ‘Velayudham’.
After much compulsion and disappointment proven by Surya fans, theatre proprietors and marketers organized for any special show eventually just before the discharge also it got full within couple of hrs of opening too.
And today, the cinemas have arranged for any special matinee and evening show prior to the film release and tickets were again offered out within couple of minutes from the opening!
Appears like its indeed likely to be a clash of leaders this Dewali in the Box Office, with both ’7am Arivu’ and ‘Velayudham’ garnering much attention each day.
Surya’s Dewali treat ‘7am Arivu’ to take box office by storm
‘7AM ARIVU’ WILL OPEN TO PACKED HOUSES!
Just a day to go! Surya’s biggest film 7am Arivu (Ezham Arivu) will hit the theaters on Dewali. Directed by the Ghajini fame A.R Murugadoss, the film has created much hype and hoopla, thanks to the marketing blitzkrieg, and a grand music launch. The movie is going to release with 1000 prints.
The movie also stars Kamal Hassan’s beautiful daughter Shruti Hassan as a scientist while Surya will be seen in a double role: as a circus artist and as a Buddhist monk. The film also has a surprise element as the handsome Vietnamese actor Johnny Tri Nguyen was signed to play the villain and not any Indian actor. Along with Shruti Hassan, the other female lead of the film is the bubbly young actress Abhinaya of ‘Nadodigal’ fame.
However, sources claim that the film drew inspiration from Christopher Nolan‘s last year’s hit Inception. However, the director AR Murugadoss dismissed the news, reasoning that he had begun shooting much before the release of Inception. After completing the film, he clarified that he had not been inspired or remade any film, also stating that Hollywood filmmakers can “feel free to remake 7am Arivu”.
The audiences are eagerly waiting for the film releasing on Dewali, and as per reports the advance booking for 7am Arivu began on October 19, 2011, and almost all the theatres are fully booked for the next five days.
