Muthu was estimated to have grossed USD$700K in Malaysia and SGD$450K in Singapore. The film edged out Rajini's previous film Baashha in most overseas territories. It grossed a total of USD$1.68M from its first phase overseas release.

In 1998, Muthu was dubbed in Japanese and found great success in Japan. The film ran for 182 days in the country grossing ¥400 million (USD$3.08M). It had a record run in the Cinema rise theater where it grossed ¥208 million. It is still currently the highest grossing Indian film in Japan.
