Masss - Box Office Collection

Masss grossed a total of 75 crores worldwide with 50 crores from India and USD$3.89M abroad.

Masss shocked the trade with its opening. The movie had an opening very well below the standards of a Suriya film grossing only 5.40 crores on its 1st day in Tamil Nadu. Initial reviews were encouraging but it was not enough to support Masss at the box office.

Usually Suriya movies have a loyal family audience support that help the movie keep a decent performance after the opening. Masss' low numbers made the trade to believe that Suriya may have lost some of his loyal support from family audiences due to his recent choice of movies. Venkat Prabhu movies (The director of Masss) are often perceived to not be family-friendly as well.

Masss put up unexpectedly low numbers throughout India. The film did decent business in certain overseas territories including Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Singapore but failed to do so in other overseas territories.

Masss was released in Tamil Nadu by the producer himself which helped avoid losses to distributors. It was a profitable venture internationally as well. Other markets failed to return profits. Due to Masss' low box office numbers and losses in key territories, Masss is declared an "Average".

The following shows what distribution method each territory is distributed through. The Profit/Loss column in the distributor analysis table is calculated based off of which distribution method a territory is distributed through. This makes it so that a distributor's profit is not always calculated by subtracting "Rights" from "Share". Indian Movie Stats focuses on four different distribution methods: Non Refundable Advance, Minimum Guarantee, Advance Basis, and Own Release.
