7aum Arivu - Box Office Collection

Suriya teaming up with A.R. Murugadoss again after the massive success of Ghajini in 2005 created huge hype in the trade. 7aum Arivu was made on a huge budget of 80 crores and was sold for massive rates for a Tamil film.

7aum Arivu opened huge at the Diwali box office despite clashing with Vijay's Velayudham. The movie grossed 7.65 crores on its 1st day in Tamil Nadu placing 2nd to only Enthiran in the state surpassing Ajith's Mankatha. It went on to gross nearly 28 crores in its 5-day opening weekend in Tamil Nadu earning well above Vijay's Velayudham. 7aum Arivu opened huge outside of Tamil Nadu as well.

7aum Arivu finished with a gross of 55.50 crores in Tamil Nadu becoming the first Non-Rajini film to earn over 50 crores in the state. It grossed 7 crores in Chennai City, 11 crores in the Chengalpet Circuit, 5.80 crores in the TT Circuit, and 4.5 crores in the Salem Circuit. Despite such huge numbers all across Tamil Nadu, 7aum Arivu fell below its huge theatrical rights. The movie was taxed higher than Suriya's previous films because of a new entertainment tax ruling and was only able to earn a 32.50 crore distributor share in Tamil Nadu against its 36.50 crore theatrical price.

Luckily, 7aum Arivu's box office numbers outside of Tamil Nadu was enough to give profits to distributors. The movie did record business for Suriya outside of Tamil Nadu by a great margin despite competition from Vijay's Velayudham.

7aum Arivu grossed nearly 108 crores worldwide making Suriya the 3rd South Indian hero after Rajini and Kamal to have a film gross over 100 crores worldwide. The movie did approximatley 88.45 crores in India and USD$3.99M abroad.

7aum Arivu broke-even for its distributors worldwide with a total distributor share of 59.40 crores against its total distribution rights of 59.40 crores. The movie can be declared a Hit for its massive box office numbers despite lack of profit for distributors and its producer.

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.
