The much awaited actioner Bogan finally hit theatres on Feb 2nd. Right from its first look poster to its teaser to its trailer, the movie had everyone's attention, especially Arvind Swamy-Jayam Ravi's bromance. The hit combination was back again but this time both played cops. As the current Kollywood trend goes, this movie released on a Thursday too. Since yesterday, the movie has opened to positive reviews - The main lead's performances specifically Arvind Swamy and Jayam Ravi have been appreciated. But somehow despite the positive word of mouth the movie has opened to weak collection. As per reports on Behindwoods, Bogan has collected Rs 42, 00,000 lakhs only in Chennai. This is surprising considering the movie has been received positively. We can only assume, since the release day was a Thursday the turnout might not have been impressive. Hereafter, the collections may witness a huge boost since the reviews have mostly been positive. Also Behindwoods stated that official numbers are yet to be out. So it might be too early to draw a conclusion. Also Read: Bogan movie review: Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy’s terrific performances make for a winning entertainer
Bogan directed by Lakshman stars Hansika, Arvind Swamy and Jayam Ravi. Prior to the release, many suggested, the movie was a rip off of the nicholas Cage movie - Face off. But in an article by Sreedhar Pillai, Jayam Ravi has clearly clarified - “Yes, I play a cop in Bogan but there is no truth in the film being inspired by Face Off. This is something different and a first-of-its-kind in Tamil cinema packaged with elements of fun, mystery, adventure and romance.” In most reviews, everyone has praised Jayam Ravi - Arvind Swamy's chemistry. This time, both had a scope to perform with Hansika bringing the glam quotient to this film. In 2015, Arvind-Jayam gave one of Kollywood's biggest hits - Thani Oruvan. Interestingly, both were cop dramas. So will Bogan be their second hit? The box office verdict will tell.
