Sivaji has emerged the undisputed king all
over. The boss is ruling in each and every
theatre it has been released in. According
to trade pundits, Sivaji has racked in an
unbelievable Rs.95 crores in India alone,
by the end of its third weekend. Unbelievable,
isn’t it? But, it’s true, because
as opposed to other Tamil films,
Sivaji was not just released in Tamil Nadu but across
India with a record of 650-plus screens including 18 theatres
in Maharashtra, 4 in Delhi and Kolkata, respectively.
The movie is a major hit in all these theatres. And is
a record for any regional language movie. In Delhi even
the Hindi junta is choosing Sivaji over Jhoom Barabaar
Jhoom and other Hindi movies. The overwhelming response
to the film in Delhi came as a surprise considering that
the film was in Tamil and without subtitles. But people,
who are drawn towards the theatres due to the hype, looking
for entertainment, are not disappointed. In Andhra Pradesh,
both the Telugu and Tamil version were released, with
both doing unbelievable business. In close to three weeks,
the Telugu version has crossed Rs.18-crore mark. Maharashtra
and Kerala have also reported never-heard-before business.
Overseas too, Sivaji is doing mind-boggling business.
In Malaysia it has already crossed Rs7.8-crore mark. In
its third weekend, the movie was placed in the second
spot behind the big budget summer extravaganza - Transformers,
but ahead of the other big release Die Hard 4.0 and Fantastic
Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer.
The numbers from the US is not available yet, but the
movie is said to have broken all the records for a Tamil
movie, taking 100% opening across the country in the first
week and dropping down to 80% in the third week. The collections
are expected to have crossed Rs.4.5 crores.
In UK, the movie has collected Rs.2.75 crores so far.
Easily one of the biggest Indian movies of the year.
No official details have been released from Singapore
and Australia. But here again, the movie had taken a grand
opening clocking 100% in the first weekend and dropping
down to 75% in the third week.
