The Tamil action comedy film Maaveeran, starring Sivakarthikeyan and Aditi Shankar, has crossed the ₹76 crore mark worldwide in its 24-day run. This makes it the fourth biggest grosser of Sivakarthikeyan’s career, after Remo , Doctor , and Seema Raja.
The film had a good opening weekend, grossing over ₹20 crore in Tamil Nadu alone. It continued to perform well in the following weeks, and even managed to hold its own against big-budget releases like Ponniyin Selvan 2 and Varisu.
Maaveeran’s success is a welcome relief for Sivakarthikeyan, who had a flop with his previous film, Prince. The film’s positive reviews and strong word-of-mouth helped it to connect with the audience, and it is now emerging as a sleeper hit.
The film’s success is also a testament to the growing popularity of Tamil cinema in the international market. Maaveeran has grossed over $2 million in overseas markets, including ₹55 lakh in the Gulf countries, ₹33 lakh in Malaysia, ₹38 lakh in North America, and ₹42 lakh in the UK.
Overall, Maaveeran is a decent outing for Sivakarthikeyan and his team. The film has grossed well at the box office, and it has also received positive reviews from critics. It is a good sign for the actor, who is now looking to build on this success with his upcoming films like SK 20 and Ayalaan.
Here is a breakdown of Maaveeran’s box office collection:
- India: ₹59.4 crore
- Tamil Nadu: ₹48.5 crore
- Karnataka: ₹3.9 crore
- AP/Nizam: ₹4.3 crore
- International: $2 million
- Gulf: ₹0.55 million
- Malaysia: ₹0.33 million
- North America: ₹0.38 million
- UK: ₹0.42 million
Maaveeran is a profitable film for its producers, considering its budget of ₹35 crore. The film’s success is a boost for the Tamil film industry, which has been struggling in recent years due to the rise of the multiplexes and the competition from other language films.
