Arrambam - Box Office Collection

Arrambam received positive reviews and was Ajith Kumar's highest grosser at the time of its release. It was the 8th highest grossing Tami film at the time.

Arrambam opened to a grand response at the Diwali box office. It grossed a huge 8.75 crore in Tamil Nadu on its 1st day. Ajith's film held the 3rd biggest 1st day in Tamil Nadu after Enthiran and Thuppakki. It set a new record in Chennai City grossing over 80 lakhs. It went on to gross 2.45 crores in Chennai City over its 1st weekend and 25.50 crores in Tamil Nadu.

The action film scored well abroad too opening well in key international markets including Malaysia, North America, Europe, and South East Asia. Kerala, Karnataka, and Andhra/TG had decent openings as the film lacked much pre-release buzz in these territories.

After the grand opening, Arrambam started to slow down outside urban centers. The movie finished with a gross of 52.50 crores in Tamil Nadu leaving distributors with minor losses in specific territories in the state. Arrambam failed to satisfy distributors in its Telugu version and just broke-even in Karnataka and North India. Fortunatley, Arrambam was a "Super Hit" internationally and a "Hit" in Kerala.

Overall, Arrambam can be declared an "Above Average" for its minor losses in key territories and the considerable loss it caused for its producer. The movie grossed nearly 95 crores worldwide with 67.30 crores from India and USD$4.46M abroad.

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.
