Gautam Menon’s mega-folly and depressingly disgusting Cooum Dump of a movie Vaaranam Aayiram (Surya), is a box office disaster in the U.K., according to the numbers from the UK Film Council.
Even trashy Tamil films like Kuselan, Kuruvi, Bheema and Billa fared better in the U.K. than Vaaranam Aayiram.
And why not – Vaaranam Aayiram is a pathetic piece of shit that had no business being released in a theatre.
If Surya and Gautam ‘inept’ Menon wanted a joy ride on the ego train, they should have limited the screening of this piece of junk to Friends & Family and not inflicted such painful agony on the paying audience.
Au contraire, Surya and Gautam ‘inept’ Menon duped us of $15 by promising a movie and showing us some ugly images flashing on the screen.
For the opening weekend (November 14-16, 2008), Vaaranam Aayiram had a pathetic opening gross of a mere £44,589, much worse than a crappy movie like Kuruvi.
Vaaranam Ayiram came in at No-16 for the opening weekend and had an average gross of £4,954, lower than Billa, Kuruvi and Kuselan but higher than Bheema and that ultimate kuppa Aegan.
