With Monday being an Eid holiday, “Chandu Champion” has the opportunity to sustain its momentum at the box office. However, it will soon face competition from Nag Ashwin’s much-anticipated film, “Kalki 2898 AD,” releasing on June 27. Meanwhile, it contends with the horror-comedy “Munjya,” which has already crossed the Rs 50 crore mark.

It’s about heroism and realizing your potential, about taking your best shot despite adversities and sticking by your dream. It sounds not only clichéd but corny, and yet it involves us on a human level.”
