Padikkadavan - Box Office Collection

Padikkadavan released along with Vijay's Villu for 2009's Pongal festival. The movie was met with mixed to negative reviews from critics but went on to become Dhanush's highest grosser in Tamil Nadu.

Villu flopping at the box office helped Padikkadavan pick up its performance. The movie finished with a total collection of 3.40 crores in Chennai City and 15.50 crores in Tamil Nadu. Despite slightly edging Yaaradi Nee Mohini in Tamil Nadu, Padikkadavan still fell behind Dhanush's previous highest grosser in many centers across the state.

Padikkadavan was not able to repeat its success in Tamil Nadu outside of its home state. It failed to deliver much profits in Kerala, Karnataka, North India, and abroad. Thus, the film failed to surpass Yaaradi Nee Mohini globally. But because of its success in Tamil Nadu, Padikkadavan can be declared a "Hit" for Dhanush.
