It was a grand Diwali at the south box office as two intriguing movies clashed - Kaashmora and Kodi. While one is a mythological drama, the other is a political thriller. Kaashmora starred Karthi in three distinct avatars, while Dhanush starred in a double role in Kodi! Both movies had enough reasons for fans to be excited. And now the post reactions for both have been positive. Everyone has raved about Karthi's versatality nd Dhnaush's double action treat. While Kodi has dominated on the local front at the TN Kaashmora is creating waves overseas,especially at the US box office. On day 1 itself it earned a whopping Rs 85 lakhs, which soon increased to 1.49 crore by the end of Day 2. Now the latest updates suggest, the movie has earned 3 crore at the US box office. The movie was allotted 155 screens in Tamil and Telugu while Kodi has been allotted a mere 41 screens. What even more brilliant, on day 1, the total overseas collection was Rs 2 crore.

But at the Malaysian, UK, France box office, Kodi takes over the mythological drama, not by a large margin, even then, apart from at the local front, that is the TN box office. The only box office, both are equally ruling is the Chennai one. So, as of now, it is too early to say who the clear winner is in this box office race. If we can say so, looks like both movies are doing equally well.
Kaashmora is about a con man who pretends to know black magic. There comes a day, when this man encounters a real supernatural experience and it's about how he tackles it. As for Kodi, it's about the brilliant concept of 'once a twin always a twin'. Even Trisha has been praised for her a bold, negative character.
