collection is not included in this report. (The
whole Chennai rate was Rs.6.5 crores!!)

Chandramukhi which had a spectacular running here,
ran up to 105 days in the complex. Sivaji has beat
that with 20 more days.
Even it is the first movie to have Special shows

kind. No movie except than Sivaji had such numerous
Total 159 days of running
You must keep in mind that Sivaji was screened in
Santham too for 34 days. So, if you total both you
would get 159days. Wow….what a record in this VCD/DVD
