Krrish 3 vs Arrambam this weekend at the box office

Two huge releases, Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 and Tamil superstar Ajith’s Arrambam are all set for a huge battle at the South Indian box office.

Hrithik has a huge fan-following in the south, almost all his films have opened well in Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. But this time around, Arrambam is likely to affect the business of Krrish 3 in the south, especially in Tamilnadu.

Krrish 3 – Arrambam

The advance booking of both films kick-started on Saturday and the response has been phenomenal for both. In major cities, Krrish 3 tickets are selling like hot cakes. A few morning shows are ‘housefull’ in advance or filling up quickly. A few multiplexes are screening as many as 30 shows per day, with one show every 20-25 minutes!

Tickets of Arrambam too are in high demand. There are reports that several exhibitors are increasing the screens and shows of the film in Tamilnadu by reducing the shows of Krrish 3 and older releases.

In Karnataka, all shows of Arrambam on November 1st have been cancelled as the state celebrates ‘Rajyothsava’.

The South Indian territories will be important for Krrish 3, if it has to have any chance of break the opening day record of Chennai Express or crossing the 30 crore mark. What would make it even tougher is the fact that Friday is a working day.

A question to all our readers from the south Indian states. What’s your pick – Krrish 3 or Arrambam? Tell us! Do mention your state or city too.



  • Havent seen Arrambam but O am sure it will be 1000 times better than Krrish 3.
    Cartoony villains and rubbish songs in Krrish 3 will sink it

  • I’ll go for Krrish 3 as i’m a big fan of hrithik.
    But for others Arambham would definetly the first choice as we know after the come back movie Magatha , Ajith is in most than ever. He is also called the next superstar of south after Rajnikanth.
    But we can’t judge the future anything can happen as Ajith’s last movie Billa 2 was not accepted by Malayali audience . So figure crossed for both movie.

  • aarambam what???that film is not releasing in andhra..k3 is releasing 450 screens in a.p and 200 in tn 7 kerala and 100-150 in 750-800 screens in south more than aarabam in south..

  • I Prefer both because about hrithik i had already said and you all know him

    But Ajith he is king of opening in tamil cinema
    He has no cinema family back ground he came to industry without support of any god father and he is also a great racer and mostly good human being he will stand in queue when he votes or to pay school fees for his daughter and avoids fan clubs and film functions and attends charitable functions which and when in need of tamil cinema

    Fans call him THALA

    Aarambam will make big thing as it was a great combination of actor director combo(BILLA a hindi remake of DON)

  • Advance booking report via krish3: pritty good because of huge screen size but not upto mark compare to yjhd or chennai express, means pre diwali release affect it but due to huge craze and buzz k3 1st figer may cross 25cr althoug single screen yet to be reported, source via @boxofficedetail.
    The romance pridiction, k3 need 25cr plus 1st day to recover its invesment, anything less 25cr trun down k3 to become all time diwali diastar.

  • those who talking about 250 crore for krrish 3…are actually talking abt the total collection of all movies releasing in Nov 2013

  • Arrambam all the way!
    Most people wont watch Krishh 3 missing ARRAMBAM in tamil nadu.
    I am from karnataka….even here Arrambam has more shows than Krishh 3.
