Suriya Sivakumar-starrer Tamil action-drama ‘Singam 2’, which released worldwide July 5, has got a good opening. It collected Rs.9.25 crore on the release day in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka despite getting criticism for being too lengthy.
“Reportedly made on a budget of Rs.45 crore, `Singam 2` collected a total of Rs.9.25 crore on the day of release from Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka,” trade analyst Trinath told reporters.
The critics said Hari Gopalakrishnan`s directorial venture as over commercial and extremely lengthy, but it seems that the viewers are enjoying the film.
The success of “Singam 2” comes as a respite for Suriya after his last two releases – “7am Arivu” and “Maattrraan” failed to keep the cash registers ringing.
The film is a sequel to highly successful “Singam”, and Hari Gopalakrishnan went behind the camera to helm both the films.
Besides Suriya, “Singam 2” also features Anushka Shetty, Hansika Motwani, Nasser, Mukesh Rushi, Danny Sapani, Rahman, Radha Ravi, Santhanam, Vivek and Anjali.
The trailer launch of Suriya and Anushka starrer ‘Singam’ has been done at Prasad Labs in Hyderabad.The film is the sequel of Suriya’s superhit film ‘Yamudu’. Hansikha is playing a key role, and Anjali is playing an item number in it.
S.Lakshman Kumar is producing this movie under Prince pictures banner.
The producer said that it is his first film and they are planning to release the movie on June 28th, releasing the audio on 14th.
Anushka says, ” All the films I’ve done in Studio Green banner are big hits and I am very happy at working again in this banner. I have acted with Suriya in Yamudu and it is a big hit. It is a joy to pair up with him once again for it’s sequel. This is a very gripping subject and it will be a bit higher than Yamudu regarding entertainment”.
Suriya says, ” I feel like coming to my own home whenever I come to Hyderabad. I am very thankful to Telugu people, who are receiving every film of mine very well. My market value has increased with Yamudu and it’s sequel ‘Singam’ will be a bit higher in technical aspect and entertainment. This is a film which shows the value of relationships, social responsibility and I have done a very challenging cop’s role. Devi Sri Prasad has given an outstanding music score, and the audio is a big hit in Tamil. I hope this film will become a huge hit here”.
Suriya Sivakumar, who is currently gearing up for the release of upcoming Tamil action-drama Singam 2, doesn’t rule out donning khaki for the third installment of the film.
Suriya returns as a righteous young cop in Singam 2, which is the sequel to Tamil blockbuster Singam.
“I would love to do the third part of Singam provided my director has the patience and time to work again. The excitement with with which we have worked for this film has given me the confidence to work again if there is a third installment in the offing,” Suriya told reporters.
He was speaking at the audio launch of Singam 2, which is directed by Hari Gopalakrishnan, who had helmed the first part.
“We spent nearly eight months on this project and, therefore, time becomes crucial if we are planning to collaborate for the next part. Director Hari is already committed to his next project, so am I. If time permits, we may return soon,” he added.
The film also features Anushka Shetty, Hansika Motwani, Nassar, Vijayakumar, Santhanam, Vivek and Anjali, among others, in important roles.
