Sarkar - Box Office Collection

After its 2nd weekend, Sarkar has a cume total of 239 crores worldwide with 169.75 crores from India and USD$9.55M (69.33cr) abroad. Vijay's movie received a mixed response from audiences and had an unhealthy drop during its weekdays. Chances of breaking-even are slim in some key territories.

Sarkar has earned a revenue of 91.50 crores for its distributors in India. The film is deemed a safe venture in Karnataka, Andhra/TS, North India, and Kerala. Despite small numbers in Kerala, Sarkar's buyers will have no losses there because they bought the film on a commission basis. Tamil Nadu is the only concern for Sarkar in India as the movie recovered only 83% of its investment so far in the state. Given Sarkar's performance, it is impossible for it to break-even in Tamil Nadu.

In the overseas market, Sarkar has fetched profits for a few while disappointing the majority. Sarkar is declared a "Blockbuster" in the Middle East and is expected to break-even in Europe too. Unfortunately, Sarkar will face losses in almost all other overseas territories.

Sarkar - First Weekend Collection

Sarkar had a massive opening weekend. It grossed over 200 crores worldwide. The political thriller grossed 140.80 crores in India and USD$8.51M (61.89cr) abroad.

Over its 6-day Diwali weekend, Sarkar earned a massive 96 crores in Tamil Nadu with a distributor share of 55.50 crores. It recovered nearly 70% of its investment in the state already. After a sharp drop on Monday though, there is uncertainty in the trade of whether or not the film will break-even in Tamil Nadu.

Sarkar's grand start brought in profits to many investors outside its home state. The Telugu version is already in profit. With theatrical rights priced at 7.50 crores, the movie earned a distributor share of 7.55 crores in just 6 days. Sarkar reflected the same success in North India. The following week will have Sarkar bring in profits for distributors in Karnataka too. In the overseas market, Sarkar is expected to surpass Mersal to become actor Vijay's highest grosser abroad. Contrastingly, Sarkar is projected to flop in Kerala. The mixed reviews affected the movie's performance dramatically after its 1st day.

Mixed public word of mouth is worrying the trade and the next week will be crucial for Sarkar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and certain other overseas territories.
