Key Highlight
  • DD Returns has grossed Rs. 29 crores in India, emerging SUPER HIT at the box office
  • In Tamil Nadu DD Returns has collected Rs. 28 crores plus, crossing last two parts of franchise

Tamil horror comedy DD Returns, short for Dhilluku Dhuddu 3, has emerged as a SUPER HIT movie at the box office. The Santhanam led comedy ensemble grossed Rs. 9 crores approx in its second weekend, experiencing only a marginal 23 per cent drop from its opening weekend. As a result, the film's ten-day total stands at Rs. 29 crores at the Indian box office, with the majority of earnings coming from Tamil Nadu, where it has crossed the Rs. 28 crores mark.  In doing so the film has crossed the previous two parts of the franchise rather comfortably; Dhilluku Dhuddu (Rs. 21 crores) and Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 (Rs. 19 crores).

The way the film has performed so far, going over Rs. 40 crores in Tamil Nadu would have been a rather easy feat but the film will hit a major roadblock on Thursday with the release of Rajinikanth starrer Jailer, which will cut its run short. However, should the film manage to secure some showings in the weeks ahead, finishing in the high 30s in the state remains an attainable goal.

The second half of the year has begun on a high note for the Tamil box office after a relatively subdued first half. In July, Maamaanan emerged as a big hit, Maaveeran has done nearly Rs. 50 crores and of course a super hit with DD Returns. Now, the much-anticipated Jailer is generating strong pre-sales and carrying good pre-release reports. If all factors align favourably, Jailer could be that big grosser that the Tamil Nadu box office is desperately in need of.


The box office collections of DD Returns at the Indian box office are as follows:

  • Week One: Rs. 20 crores
  • 2nd Friday: Rs. 2 crores
  • 2nd Saturday: Rs. 3.50 crores
  • 2nd Sunday: Rs. 3.50 crores
  • Total: Rs. 29 crores
