Yet another south film has been released pan-India and this time it is the dubbed version of Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan 1 or simply put, PS1. It was predicted in this column that the film would start at least 2 crore And the number of the opening day was pretty close to that, with what 1.85 crore* Coming in.

These are really fair numbers for the movie ps1 Dubbed versions are one of the most ‘core south’ films to come out on a pan-India level. Even the Baahubali series had its south premise, but then the characters, their names, their locations, their spoken language and conflict were presented in a way that had a pan-India appeal.

However, Ponniyin Selvan 1 is straight out of a piece of history and even the title has not been changed from Tamil, resulting in the appeal being quite distinctive. Yet, despite this, the film has seen decent footfalls.

Of course, this is all relative as many Bollywood films have performed so disastrously that even such openings seem fine. In any case, whatever comes out of the Hindi dubbed version of Ponniyin Selvan 1 will have added bonuses and Mulla’s origins will come from the markets of the south where it has opened quite well, especially Tamil Nadu where it is located.

It will be interesting to see if the Hindi version goes up over the weekend because if that happens we will be looking at at least a double digit lifetime for the film.

*Estimate. final number awaited
