Sivaji at No 1 : Behindwoods.com

Do we have to say more? The movie has been on top of the charts ever since it hit the screens.

Trade Talk:
The trade pundits are totally taken aback by the response this movie is getting. Even on its 7th weekend most of the theatres are full. The very idea of releasing the movie in record number of theatres which was loathed upon is now being called as a master stroke. As everyone from the distributors to the theatre owners are frequently visiting the Bank, full of smiles.

Public Talk:
Shankar has given what the fans wanted, entertainment. Rajini charisma and style has been utilized to the most and topping this will be an uphill task. Family audience who are flocking the theatres are a little unhappy about the excess glamour quotient.
