Thalaivaa - Box Office Collection

Thalaivaa released on August 9th worldwide excluding Tamil Nadu as the film witnessed controversies and issues regarding it's release in the state which got the film delayed for a great amount of time. During the delay in Tamil Nadu, pirated videos went viral on DVDs and the internet which got most of the movie's audience in Tamil Nadu to watch the film before it's release in the state. The piracy took a big control of Thalaivaa's footfalls (audience) which resulted in huge losses. Thalaivaa didn't make much of an impact outside of Tamil Nadu as well. The movie was declared a success in Kerala and became an average venture in Karnataka, Mumbai, Delhi, etc. The movie was an above average grosser overseas and a below average in Andhra/TG. The movie was later then released in Tamil Nadu on August 20th after all the issues were sorted out. The film grossed 20 crores after it's 6-day weekend. Thalaivaa grossed a disappointing 6 crores from it's transition from it's first weekend to it's second weekend. After it's third weekend, the movie was out of most of it's initial screens which got the movie to a total of 29 crores in Tamil Nadu. This resulted in a huge 21 crore loss in Tamil Nadu. Despite the movie not facing much problem outside of it's home state, the film was only profitable in Kerala and and the overseas market. The film only brought in small profits from Karnataka and the rest of India. If it wasn't for the delay the total gross in Tamil Nadu would have reached near 46 crores at most. At the end of it's run the movie met with a total gross of 71 crores worldwide becoming a financial loss for distributors.
