Velaikkaran - First Weekend Collectin

Velaikkaran grossed 35.85 crores globally after three days at the box office. The film debuted #2 in India after Tiger Zinda Hai. Velaikkaran grossed 24.45 crores domestically and USD$1.78M (11.40 Crores) abroad. The film received a generally mixed to positive response from audiences opening well in A centers. B and C centers unfortunately failed to share a similar response opening to numbers below Sivakarthikeyan’s last release “Remo”. Despite the negatives, Velaikkaran set a new record for Sivakarthikeyan edging past Remo’s three days global cume of 34 cores.

Post Remo, Sivakarthikeyan created huge buzz in the trade and managed to fetch fancy prices for Velaikkaran. Due to such prices, the film had to aim for nearly 65 crores in Tamil Nadu alone to become a profitable venture for many of the parties involved. With the movie collecting a mere 22.25 crs in three days, Velaikkaran has disappointed many. On the bright side however, Velaikkaran has shown an overall positive trend with its 2nd day numbers in Tamil Nadu being nearly 90% of its 1st day. Velaikkaran’s 3rd day in Tamil Nadu distribution circuits have all shown figures higher than its 1st Day. With this trend, the trade hopes for Sivakarthikeyan and M. Raja’s duo to hold strong in the upcoming days.

Outside of Tamil Nadu, Velaikkaran had an average opening with only certain overseas territories and Karnataka returning decent numbers. Malaysia, North America, and Singapore have opened to decent numbers while Oceania, the Middle East, and Sri Lanka returned “Ok-ish” numbers performing a bit below “Remo”. Europe was very poor for Velaikkaran with the poor publicity and Christmas holidays to blame for. Velaikkaran’s venture in Kerala has already been declared disastrous as it looks like it is going no where near the expected 2.50 crs distributor share.

All eyes are on Velaikkaran’s upcoming weeks at the box office as its performance post its opening will determine the movie’s fate.
