Maari - Box Office Collection

Maari opened to mixed reviews from critics and held a decent word of mouth from the audience. This didn't effect the film holding Dhanush's biggest career opening but it did cause the film to slow down later on after that. The film did hold a huge loss in Chennai but everwhere else showed good profit making the film to be a profit overall in Tamil Nadu. Outside of Tamil Nadu, the film had an outstanding performance in Karnataka, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Singapore. Maari grossed a total of 46.25 crores worldwide becoming a "Hit" at the box office.

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.
