Mankatha - Box Office Collection

Mankatha was Ajith Kumar's comeback at the box office after a doormant period following Billa's release in 2007. The movie released to positive word of mouth and opened grand at the box office. It was estimated to have grossed nearly 6.50 crores in Tamil Nadu on its 1st day - the 2nd highest after Enthiran at the time.

The comic heist film grossed nearly 24 crores in its 5-day opening weekend in Tamil Nadu. Its 1st week total is said to be over 30 crores. Other territories in India and abroad shared a similar response as well.

Mankatha exemplified its "Blockbuster" run in all released territories barring Andhra Pradesh. Ajith's film grossed nearly 73 crores worldwide with 58.75 crores from India and USD$3.10M abroad.

Ajith's film finished as the 7th highest grossing Tamil film of all time. It was the 3rd highest grossing film in Tamil Nadu after Enthiran and Sivaji. Mankatha was a movie to remember from Ajith's film career with critics claiming it as the best thing Ajith has ever done since Billa in 2007.

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.
