Velayudham - Box Office Collection

Velayudham will be remembered for bringing back Vijay from his long period of commercial failures. Despite Velayudham failing to break-even in key areas, the movie was a relief for hero Vijay as Velayudham finally brought audiences in good numbers to a Vijay film.

Velayudham opened well during the Diwali festival grossing 6 crores in Tamil Nadu on its 1st day and nearly 21.50 crores in its opening weekend. It fell behind its competitor 7aum Arivu by a great margin. Velayudham grossed a total of 39 crores in Tamil Nadu incurring a loss of 2 crores in the state to its distributors.

The movie was able to recover most of its costs outside of Tamil Nadu. It even edged out 7aum Arivu in Kerala by 1.75 crores. Velayudham was declared a success in Kerala and the overseas market.

Velayudham grossed a total of 64 crores worldwide with 49.35 crores from India and USD$3.02M abroad. It was declared an "Above Average" for its minor losses it caused for distributors.

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.
