The drop on the seventh day from the first day was less than 60 per cent, which is an incredible hold. In Tamil Nadu, it was even better at less than 50 per cent. A 50 per cent drop would be considered a very strong hold even for the smaller films, here it is coming for a film that opened to more than Rs. 20 crores plus, which is simply out of the world.

The Thursday collections in the state were 75 per cent more than that of Vikram, which previously held the record for the biggest non-holiday Thursday.
There seems to no stopping for the film in the second weekend as well, with today seeming to be another Rs. 10 crores plus day in Tamil Nadu. Saturday and Sunday have huge advances and both can go as high as Rs. 15 crores or more.
