Aadhavan - Box Office Collection

After riding high off of Ayan's success, Suriya became red hot in the trade. Aadhavan was made on a high budget and was sold for high rates in the market. The movie had a grand opening at the Diwali box office and was met with a generally positive response from audiences and critics alike.

Aadhavan initially performed well at the box office grossing great numbers across Kollywood's markets. The movie then started to slide down and finished with minor losses against its high distribution prices.

Aadhavan became Suriya's 2nd highest grosser globally after Ayan grossing nearly 61 crores with 46.75 crores from India and USD$2.99M abroad. The movie is declared an "Above Average" for its minor losses despite a decent box office performance.

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.
