Jeetu Joseph is back after his previous venture Aadhi in 2018. Jeetu Joseph’s debut as director was with the movie, ‘Drishyam’ in 2007 and he has decided to venture into the action thriller genre with Thambi, starring Karthi, Jyothika, Sathyaraj, Nikhila Vimal and Seetha. Ahead of its opening weekend closure, Karthi is receiving a lot of hype for Jeetu’s much awaited movie as well as for Jeetu and Karthi’s combo which is coming together for the first time with ‘Thambi’.
However, bad news awaits the makers of Karthi’s movie “Thambi” as Tamilrockers, a leading torrent site for movies download has already leaked the full movie online.
Will Thambi’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Box Office Collections?
Thambi is one of the most awaited action thriller entertainer movies with Karthi playing the lead. Considering the amount of expectations from Karthi’s fans at stake, the early pirated release of Karthi 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, Thambi is hyped well enough and the cast of Karthi in a significant role will definitely attract his fan base to the theaters to watch the movie. Also, Thambi promises to be a gripping action thriller 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 Thambi are promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Thambi on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run. Incidentally, the movie Thambi is produced under the banner of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. Most of the recent movies produced in the Tamil movie industry have been released on Tamilrockers on the day of the release.
Thambi Movie Hit or Flop? First Day Collection
First day collection for Thambi is predicted to be INR 10 crores in all box offices. The first day overseas collection is pegged at INR 3 crores in all languages.
Thambi has been open to mixed reviews. However, the festival holidays is likely to boost up its occupancy in the first week.
Total Worldwide Gross: 75 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.
