Karthick Naren is back after his previous venture Naadaga Medai in 2019. Karthick Naren’s debut as director was with the movie, ‘Dhuruvangal Pathinaru’ in 2016 and he has decided to venture into the action thriller genre with Mafia Chapter 1, starring Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar in the lead roles. Ahead of its opening weekend closure, Karthick Naren is receiving a lot of hype for Arun Vijay’s much awaited movie as well as for Arun Vijay and Karthick Naren’s combo which is coming together for the first time.
However, bad news awaits the makers of Arun Vijay’s movie “Mafia Chapter 1” as Tamilrockers, a leading torrent site for movies download has already leaked the full movie online.
Will Mafia Chapter 1’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Box Office Collections?
Mafia Chapter 1 is one of the most awaited action drama entertainer movies with Karthick Naren, Priya Bhavani Shankar playing the lead. Considering the amount of expectations from fans at stake, the early pirated release of Mafia Chapter 1 movie online for free download, is likely to dent its earnings.
As emphasized earlier, modern day movies depend a lot on opening week collections as a significant source of return on investment. With the advent of Tamilrockers and other online movie streaming sites, film makers face a daunting task of dealing with this situation.
However, Mafia Chapter 1 is hyped well enough and the cast of Karthick Naren in a significant role will definitely attract his fan base to the theaters to watch the movie. Also, Mafia Chapter 1 promises to be a gripping anthology romance movie and watching it on a mere 480P or 720P print will not do justice for the entertainment at stake, we believe.
On the other hand, first hand reactions of Mafia Chapter 1 are promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Mafia Chapter 1 on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run. Incidentally, the movie Mafia Chapter 1 is produced under the banner of Divine Pictures. Most of the recent movies produced in the Tamil movie industry have been released on Tamilrockers on the day of the release.
Mafia Chapter 1 Movie Hit or Flop? First Day Collection
First day collection for Mafia Chapter 1 is predicted to be INR 3.5 crores in all box offices. The first day overseas collection is pegged at INR 1.8 crores in all languages.
Mafia Chapter 1 has been open to good reviews. However, the festival holidays is likely to boost up its occupancy in the first week.
Total Worldwide Gross: 55 Cr(expected)
The Box office collection shows it has a strong opening and since being a long weekend we expect it to hold the Box Office for weekend. The word of mouth about the movie might help in long run and let’s hope it does well at Box Office. We will update the Box Office collections as soon as we get more updates.
