Vel - Box Office Collection

Despite the crowded Diwali release date, Vel went on to outperform all the movies that released alongside with it. The movie performed well in B and C stations across Tamil Nadu and helped Suriya get out of his urban look.

Vel earned a distributor share of 12.50 crores from Tamil Nadu returning a 2.50 crore profit to its Tamil Nadu distributors who bought the film for 10 crores. It gave out profits throughout all 8 distribution circuits in Tamil Nadu.

Vel received an average response in Kerala and Karnataka where Azhagiya Tamil Magan dominated the Diwali releases. Fortunatley, Suriya's film performed well in core Tamil markets outside of India including Malaysia, Singapore, and Sri Lanka. Other overseas areas were "Above Average" at best.

Vel grossed nearly 28 crores worldwide from its Tamil version with 21.45crores from India and USD$1.77M abroad. It was declared a "Hit". Note - The movie had a dubbed Telugu version but its collection is unknown.
