Thalaivaa - Box Office Collection

Thalaivaa had a delayed release in Tamil Nadu while releasing outside of the state on August 9th. Due to opposition from a local political party, Thalaivaa released in Tamil Nadu on August 20th. By then the damage was already done as piracy went viral causing severe damge to Thalaivaa's potential business in Tamil Nadu. The film was agreed to be sold at a far lesser price in Tamil Nadu because of this.

Thalaivaa went on to become Vijay's 2nd highest grosser outside of Tamil Nadu. The movie became financially profitable overseas and Kerala while failing in Andhra/TG and Karnataka.

Thalaivaa grossed 73 crores worldwide with 46.20 crores from India and USD$4.32M abroad. It was declared an "Above Average" at the box office for its minor losses and lack of business in Tamil Nadu due to piracy and its release troubes.

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.
