Ponniyin Selvan, a historical epic by Mani Ratnam on Friday, had its theatrical debut. The movie sold a tonne of advance tickets and is already playing to full theatres for its early-morning shows. All indications point to the multi-starrer shattering box office records for Tamil cinema, most likely becoming the best-opening Tamil movie of the year.

Ponniyin Selvan I had advance booking sales of close to 17 crore rupees for Friday, according to trade sources. This surpasses Kamal Haasan’s blockbuster Vikram’s 15-crore mark as the highest grossing Tamil film of the year. Additionally, it is estimated that the movie has received roughly $1.3 million (almost 10 crore) in overseas advance bookings.

Considering these figures and the high level of ticket demand on Friday morning, industry experts predict that the movie will debut to between $30 and $35 million in India alone. On the first day, additional offshore sales of 20 crore are possible. According to additional sources, the domestic total could potentially reach $40 crore on the first day if the movie receives favourable reviews and strong word-of-mouth. Ponniyin Selvan I will have the greatest first-day worldwide gross of any Tamil movie this year with a first-day gross of 50–60 crore as a result.

When it was released in June, Vikram made a worldwide gross of 54 crore and a domestic opening of 33 crore. Ponniyin Selvan ought to easily surpass these figures. The question is how much farther it can travel. The movie has received overwhelmingly positive early reviews from critics, industry analysts, and viewers, thus word of mouth will be effective.

The Manjummel Boys team receives a legal notice from Ilaiyaraaja saying, “Remove the song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan or…”

In February 2024, the film Manjummel Boys, starring Sreenath Bhasi and Soubin Shahir, was released. The unauthorised use of renowned Tamil music composer Ilaiyaraaja’s song, Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan, from the Tamil film Guna (1991) in Manjummel Boys has resulted in legal trouble for the Malayalam film, according to The Hindu.

Makers of Manjummel Boys vs. Ilaiyaraaja

The Manjummel Boys makers were accused by Ilaiyaraaja of “illegally” using Kamal Haasan’s song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan in their film without getting his “consent, permission or licence,” according to the report.

According to the notice sent through Ilaiyaraaja’s attorney, he wrote the song. The notice stated that “the same or any underlying gesture cannot be a substitute for our client’s permission/licence/content for such usage,” even though the Manjummel Boys creators had acknowledged this fact in the title cards.

Select one of the two options.

Given that the musical piece had been used commercially without permission and without paying royalty or licence fees to Ilaiyaraaja, his legal team demanded that the producers of Manjummel Boys either get the composer’s consent or immediately remove the musical piece from their film in addition to making restitution for unauthorised usage.

The notice purportedly threatened to take appropriate legal action, both civil and criminal, against Shawn Antony, Babu Shahir, and Soubhin Shahir, the film’s producers, should they choose not to pursue either of the two options.

Concerning Manjummel Boys

In the survival drama Manjummel Boys, a group of eleven friends from Kerala are organising a trip to Tamil Nadu’s Kodaikanal. Their journey takes an unexpected turn when one of the friends falls into the Guna Caves, so named because of the 1991 film of the same name starring Kamal Haasan. The next scene in Manjummel Boys depicts the other friends fighting against all obstacles to save their friend.
