'Shaakuntalam' features by Samantha are all set for a grand release tomorrow. Gunasekhar National Film Award winner has donned the director’s hat for the 13th time, and expectations are high considering he’s fresh from the super success of 'Rudhramadevi'. Let's read the day-wise Shaakuntalam box office collection here.
'Shaakuntalam' has a good chance as there are no big releases lined up right now, so a solid opening can be expected from Samantha’s mythological drama. Initially, predictions were made of up to 20 crores but as it got closer to the release date, it seemed like the buzz was missing.
Be it good music or the trailer not being as powerful as compared to the teaser, Samantha’s big film hasn’t made a huge impact ahead of its release. The VFX is a big letdown. Mind you because the movie is 3D and so, it comes across as very childish.
Shaakuntalam's pace in the first half would feel quite rushed if you don’t believe in love at first sight. The chemistry falters in bits and pieces but there are some moments where their chemistry is believable. The second half is what you wait for the most because it is the main crux of the story.
'Shaakuntalam' may earn Rs 4 crore mark at the Indian box office as its advance booking collection now stands at 1.35 crores gross for day 1.

Of course, it’s not up to the mark but still, it’s a good sign that the film has finally shown some movement in ticket sales after moving at a snail’s pace yesterday.
The credit should also be given to reduced average ticket prices for all formats. Earlier, the rates were very high.
