Kaththi - Box Office Collection

After the great success of Thuppakki, actor Vijay and director A.R. Murugadoss teamed up for another film - Kaththi. The movie released in 2014's Diwali festival and received positive reviews.

Kaththi broke records in terms of opening at the box office. It took the crown off of Enthiran and grossed a huge 13 crores on its 1st day in Tamil Nadu. It earned 39.50 crores over its 5-day opening weekend in the state. Kerala, Karnataka, North India, and the overseas market all opened grandly as well.

Kaththi was not able to put up a great performance like Thuppakki as its public talk was not as great comparitvely. Kaththi dropped a bit at the box office and fell behind Thuppakki in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Kaththi became both Vijay's and A.R. Murugadoss' highest grosser worldwide. It grossed nearly 131 crores worldwide becoming the 3rd highest grossing Tamil film at the time of its release. It grossed 89.70 crores in India and USD$6.82M abroad. Kaththi was declared a "Super Hit" for its big box office numbers. It did not achieve the "Blocbuster" verdict for its average performance it had after the grand opening.

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.
