Vedalam - Box Office Collection

Vedalam was a blockbuster for Ajith and director Siva. The movie did great business for an Ajith film and was the actor's first film to do 100 crores worldwide. It finished with a gross over 118 crores with 87.40 crores from India and USD$4.69M abroad.

Vedalam brought Ajith's market to a better level in Tamil Nadu. The film attracted family audiences and did great business outside A centers. Ajith was always at a disadvantage for not having a loyal family audience base and B & C center audience but Vedalam changed that for the hero. Vedalam grossed a huge 72 crores in Tamil Nadu becoming the 3rd highest grossing film in the state after Enthiran and "I".

Siva's directional gave profits in most areas. The movie gave out profits in all Indian territories. Vedalam did great business abroad especially in Malaysia and Sri Lanka. Europe and Singapore on the other hand were relatively poor to other territories.

Despite mixed reviews from critics, Vedalam proved to be a huge success at the box office. The movie is declared a "Blockbuster".
