Kanthaswamy - Box Office Collection

Kanthasawmy was made on a lavish film budget and had huge pre-release hype. The film had the 2nd biggest craze for a Vikram film after Anniyan. The Tamil superhero film was sold for huge prices for a non-Rajini/Kamal film.

Kanthasawmy opened to mixed reviews from critics and had a mixed word of mouth amongst its Tamil and Telugu audiences. It had a huge opening at the box office grossing 16 crores in Tamil Nadu during its first week with 1.73 crores coming from Chennai City. It grossed 8 crores from Andhra Pradesh, 1 crore from Kerala, and 1 crore from Karnataka during its first week.

Soon after the opening, Kanthasawmy dropped badly at the box office causing heavy losses for its distributors as its rights were sold for a hefty price. It closed with a gross of 23.75 crores from Tamil Nadu with Chennai City contributing 4.60 crores. Kanthasawmy finished with a worldwide gross near 51 crores with 38 crores from India and USD$2.58M abroad. The movie was Vikram's 2nd highest grosser worldwide after Anniyan and was declared a "Below Average".

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.
