Vettaikaaran - Box Office Collection

Vettaikaaran opened to a mixed response from audiences and critics alike. Despite the mixed talk, Vettaikaaran went on to become Vijay's 2nd highest grossing film after Pokkiri. The movie managed to bring in decent footfalls to theaters unlike Vijay's previous films that released after Pokkiri.

Vettaikaaran's pre-release business was the highest for a Vijay film despite his previous films failing to make profits. These high rates played spoilsport for the film and created minor losses for distributors in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and North India. Fortunatley the movie found success in Kerala and overseas markets.

Vettaikaaran grossed a total of about 48 crores worldwide with 36.50 crores from India and USD$2.45M abroad. It was declared an "Above Average" grosser for its minor losses. Vettaikaaran marked Vijay's 4th continious loss venture after Pokkiri.

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.
