You know for sure that the fate of a film is sealed right on the first day of its release because the talk comes out and the opening collections give a good picture. The business model is also such that the makers are looking to earn their investment within the first weekend.
In lieu of that, one movie which had a shaky release has shocked all with its openings. We are talking about the movie Uttama Villain and reports reveal that the film has opened to overwhelming response. Incidentally, the early shows got cancelled both in Telugu and Tamil.
Even the ticket fare was returned and refunded but still the opening response was superb. It looks like Kamal Haasan may well be a hero at the box office then.
