Meanwhile, the major releases of Friday, Tamil film Velaikkaran, Malayalam film Vimaanam and Telugu film Hello too started its's UAE theatrical run on a good note. Despite the clash, all the South films have managed to get reasonable screens in UAE and all three films opened to positive reports from the audience and critics alike.
