Thuppakki - Box Office Collection

Thuppakki brought back actor Vijay's prime at the box office. The film was Vijay's first commercial success since 2007 when Pokkiri released. Thuppakki grossed nearly 127 crores worldwide with 98.10 crores from India and USD$5.19M from abroad.

Thuppakki had a massive opening at the Diwali box office setting a new record for a Non-Rajini film. The movie grossed 9.30 crores in Tamil Nadu on its 1st day and 36.50 crores in its 6-day opening weekend. The opening was the same all around the world barring the film's Telugu version.

The movie was a game changer for big budget films. After Thuppakki's grand success, Kollywood's market potential for big budget flicks grew. Thuppakki was the first Non-Rajini film to gross over 100 crores from just its Tamil version. It was the 3rd highest grossing Tamil film at the time only behind Enthiran and Sivaji.

Thuppakki grossed a massive 71.40 crores in Tamil Nadu after finishing its run. It was the 2nd highest grosser in the state after Enthiran surpassing Sivaji. Thuppakki was also the 2nd highest Tamil grosser in Kerala after Enthiran. The movie placed 3rd in Karnataka. Vijay and A. R. Murugadoss' film did great business internationally as well placing as the 4th highest Tami grosser overseas.

Actor Vijay went on to new heights with the success of Thuppakki. This film is largely credited for bringing Vijay's hype amongst moviegoers back to where it was 5 years before.

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.
