Movie Chennai Chart
Chennai movie chart this week has Dev and Dhillukku Dhuddu 2 on dominant positions. 

Closely following the top 2 is Ranveer Singh's Gully Boy, the musical drama directed by Akhtar. Ajith's Viswasam proves its high quality when keeping its fourth position even after more than one month of release. On the other hand, Priya Varrier’s Oru Adaar Love received enormous anticipation beforehand thanks to the main actress' heart-melting wink. However, other aspects seem not to meet the audience's expectation, consequently, it witnesses a significant fall in ranking, down to number 5 and continues struggling to hold the market.

Dev is a perfect harmonization between romance and action, narrating an intriguing road adventure which can keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Nevertheless, it is reviewed not to be impressive enough and obtain only below average critics. But despite all of those matters, the movie starring Karthi and Rakul Preet Singh still hits the headline with its amazing run at the box office.

Having a totally different genre, Dhillukku Dhuddu 2 still manages to leave a positive impression on the audience. The sequel to 2016 film Dhillukku Dhuddu smoothly combines 2 factors, horror and comedy, in just a two-and-a-half-hour-long performance. Starring Santhanam and Shritha Sivadas in lead roles, the movie receives encouraging reviews from both viewers and critics. As a result, despite releasing along with other blockbusters, Dhillukku Dhuddu 2 claims its own and rewarded position in the Chennai movie chart.
