Kochadaiiyan Overseas BO – Rajini Can’t

And I don’t know what to say about my daughter Soundarya who directed this picture.

I saw the picture.

After seeing the picture, I told her. “Soundarya, I’m proud of you. And definitely the whole nation will be proud of you. Congrats.”
– Tamil film star Rajinikanth boasting about Kochadaiiyan and his daughter Soundarya

Ha ha ha ha.

What is that alcohol-loving Rajinikanth high on? Kalla Sarayam? Care to share some with us, Rajini-Can’t? πŸ˜‰

People are spitting on Soundarya’s face for the pathetic quality of graphics in Kochadaiiyan.

And this jackass Rajinikanth is spinning a tall yarn about his little twit’s “great achievement.”

Shameless wretch!

Kochadaiiyan BO - Disappointing

Paper Tiger

Now is the time for all wise men to accept the truth.

Rajinikanth is a paper tiger!

A tiger who roars only when he has directors like Shankar to call the shots.

Not when he has little twits to “mis-direct” him.

Despite a long weekend (thanks to the Memorial Day holiday in the U.S.), despite the endless hype about the first Indian motion-capture film and despite all the favorable reviews from friendly media, Rajinikanth’s latest film Kochadaiiyan has fared miserably in certain key overseas box office circles compared to his previous film Enthiran.

For the opening May 22-25, 2014 weekend, Kochadaiiyan grossed a mere $436,165 at the U.S. box office (less than a third of Enthiran).

Kochadaiiyan’s fate was no different in the UK. Again, the movie grossed less than a third of Enthiran.

Kochadaiiyan has come in for some serious mauling at the hands of respected critics like Raja Sen who wrote:

This is a loud, unforgivably tacky production, handicapped not merely by substandard animation but a complete lack of imagination.

By the way, collections from Hindi and Telugu versions of Kochadaiiyn are insignificant.

So why were Kochadaiiyan’s BO collections so low in the U.S. and UK?

Simple answer folks – Overseas Tamils are not as dumb as their Indian counterparts!

Telugu film ManamΒ  (Akkineni x 3), which also released May 22 in the U.S., grossed nearly twice the figure of Kochadaiiyan.

Hell, my Tollywood bΓͺte noire Allu Arjun’s Race Gurram, which debuted in the U.S. a few weeks back, has fared far better than Kochadaiiyan in its opening weekend.

If Kochadaiiyan collections proceed along the current trajectory, its U.S. producer/distributor Eros International and exhibitors could end up with considerable red ink on their books!

    It is running in a theater here surprisingly but i didn’t bother to go after seeing the shoddy motion capture.

    Loose motion capture is a more apt description.

    You write: Loose motion capture is a more apt description.

    Ha ha ha ! πŸ˜‰

    I skipped it primarily because I had full confidence that Soundarya knows far less than me about movies!

    In retrospect, I was proved right when I read the reviews about the shoddy graphics!

    As I’ve said several times in the past:

    Stalin was so right when he told the ailing Lenin’s wife Krupskaya that just because she sleeps with Lenin or uses the same toilet as Lenin did not mean she understood Marxism-Leninism.

    Ditto with the little twit who thinks she knows movies just because she sprang from Rajinikanth’s loins. πŸ™

    One by one Modi’s Supporters will fall down.

    Finally, it will be himself.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    There will be some intra-party dissidence against him.

    But I doubt Modi is going to fall so easily like his Congress counterparts.

      When I was in Chennai recently and the topic of movies was the subject of discussion one person said

      “Indha rendu kezhavanga (Kamal and Rajini) thollai thangala. Renduthukkum pesave theriyadhu. Oruthan eppovume olaruvan (Rajini) innu oruthan (Kamal) enna pesaran nu yarukkum puriyadhu sila samayam avanukkum theriyadhu. Ivanga thollai dhan thanga mudila na ivanungalode ponnunga pannaran koothu adhe vida mosam a irukku.”

      (It’s hard to endure the antics of the two old fogies Rajini and Kamal. Both can’t speak. One (Rajini) blabbers and the other (Kamal) is incomprehensible, sometimes even to himself. As if their antics were not bad enough, their daughters’ antics are intolerable.)

      Regarding your last sentence, I’m hoping Soundarya or Aiswarya will do a repeat of Shruti.

      See the second & last pictures of Shruti below:

    Its time for two Kannadigas, who looted Tamilnadu for so many years; to get Ashamed and Haplessly Crushed. First, it will be rajinikanth and then, it will be Jayalalitha.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:


    No evidence that either has looted in a literal or figurative sense.

    BTW, Rajini is a Marathi fellow not a Kannadiga. His name is Sivaji Rao Gaekwad. Not Ramesh Gowda!

    • msveda   May 27, 2014 at 10:06 am

      I don’t mean in that way. Rajini has invested a lot in Bangalore and he has created thousands of Job opportunities in Bangalore.

      But he has done little to Tamilnadu compared to Bangalore. He also promised to pass down “Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam” to his Tamilnadu fans, which still didn’t happen till today.

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      1. You write: Rajini has invested a lot in Bangalore and he has created thousands of Job opportunities in Bangalore.

      I’ve read two biographies of Sivaji Rao Gaekwad and neither mentions the superstar’s “job creation in Bangalore.”

      2. What are the fans going to do with a Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam.”

      At least, if Rajini donates some books to libraries a lot more people will benefit.

      A Kalyana mandapam only leads to more Kalyanams and more Kulandai! πŸ™ (A choultry only leads to more babies in overpopulated India.)

      • Naveen   May 28, 2014 at 12:27 am

        Thanks to the Kalyana Mandapam kuzhandhais have kudumbam otherwise it will become a country of bastards.

        Hail Rajini for helping India maintain its moral fabric. :-))

        SearchIndia.com Responds:

        You write: Thanks to the Kalyana Mandapam kuzhandhais have kudumbam otherwise it will become a country of bastards.

        So Rajini is stemming the population of Tamil bastards, eh?

        I suppose we could extend the logic further and say Rajini is preventing Tamil bastard crime through his Kalyana Mandapam because single parent children are more into crime. πŸ˜‰

          Yes. After solving the problem of Tamil bastard count Rajini will attend to the menace of upper caste women prostitutes that msveda is concerned around. All in good time.

            Don’t Bring In Comments that i Made in Another Topic into this Topic, Mr. Naveen.

            Also i properly clarified about Term in another Comment. If you want to reply, post comment in that Topic.

    • Naveen   May 28, 2014 at 1:16 am

      Which world do you live in?

      Jayalalitha has squashed all her rivals in the assembly elections and now the national elections.

      Rajini’s next movie Lingaa is destined to be a blockbuster. He has not given 2 duds in a row for atleast 2 decades.

      SearchIndia.com Responds:


      Wonderful name.

      I can imagine the discussions 12-months from now – Boopalan asking Aswin, “Hey, have you seen Rajini’s Lingaa?” And Aswin angrily retorting, “No, I don’t look at any other Lingaas except mine.” πŸ˜‰

      • boopalanj   May 29, 2014 at 3:14 am

        Ha ha.

        Let’s not forget that it is Rajini’s Lingaa which was the primary reason that we endure Kochadaiyan today πŸ˜‰

        I wish his Lingaa had not done well at “the box office” πŸ˜‰

        SearchIndia.com Responds:

        If Kochadaiyan stumbles at the BO, will Rajini compensate distributors/producers/exhibitors?

        That’s the Billion Dollar Question now, Lingaa be damned!

        • boopalanj   May 29, 2014 at 5:17 am

          Btw, I meant, without Rajini’s Lingaa, there would not be this creature called ‘Soundarya’ and hence No Kochadaiyaan.

          • Naveen   May 30, 2014 at 9:02 pm

            Deep! πŸ˜€

    • boopalanj   May 28, 2014 at 3:57 am

      And Komalavalli a.k.a Jayalalithaa’s ancestors were from Srirangam (the constituency she’s currently elected from). “Iyengar” is a tam-brahm community.

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      Not just Rajini or Jayalalitha.

      Countless Indians have found fame and fortune far from their original home – MGR, Amitabh Bachchan, Subramaniam Chandrasekhar, Deepika Padukone, Sunny Leone, Rajesh Khanna etc found success far from their homes.

  4. msveda   May 28, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    Kochadayan is already a flop, as it couldn’t meet high hype created by Genius Fans Like you, Mr. naveen.

    Come on, Naveen. We will see what Lingaa will do.
