Lingaa - Box Office Collection

Lingaa opened to negative reviews and word of mouth from critics and audiences. It ended up failing at the box office cuasing great losses for distributors. Nevertheless, it finished as the 3rd highest grossing Tamil film at the time behind Rajini's two other movies Enthiran and Sivaji.

Lingaa had an average opening at the box office. In Tamil Nadu it had a great response in Chennai City and the Chengalpet region while underperforming in all other areas. It grossed 11.30 crores on its 1st day in Tamil Nadu placing 2nd to Kaththi. Rajini's film went on to gross 27.50 crores in its opening weekend in the state.

The movie had a good opening in Andhra/TG, Karnataka, and the overseas market as well. In Kerala and North India, Lingaa opened badly.

Lingaa quickly dropped after the opening due to its negative public talk and finished with a worldwide gross near 133 crores. It grossed 89.25 crores from India and USD$7.12M abroad. Lingaa was declared a "Disaster" for causing over 60 crore loss to distributors - the biggest loss Kollywood has ever seen till date.

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.
