Look at CE, what a movie, i mean it was ATG but it faced hurdles, but like a champion hurdle racer, it jumped through all hurdles to become ATG
First hurdle was OUATIMD, i mean big movie, came 6 days later, everyone thought it will be big grosser, it came it affected CE, but as all champions do, CE rose, shook the effect and trampled OUATIMD and continued in it's historic journey
Second hurdle was Madras Cafe, small film, but took good opening in plexes, found decent appreciation, but CE being CE, continued on it's path to glory
Satyagrah was last, big starcast, by this time CE had 3 weeks of it's release, so Satyagrah was a threat, but CE had last few steps to achieve, in a final spring to glory, CE achieved that too
OUATIMD & SATYAGRAH were flop & MADRAS CAFE was average but these movies combined collected 157 crs, which shows how much they affected CE, but despite clash with combined force of 157 crs, CE like a champion overcame all those obstacles and went on to creatr history, one can only imagine as what would had happened had movie got free open weeks, but what one can't argue with is the name of CE written in golden words in the annals of history.
The mighty CE..!!
