Tamil and Telugu films in the 200-crore box-office club

box office

The business of Tamil and Telugu films at the box-office has mushroomed since 2008-’09, with several films entering the 100-crore club. In fact, Baahubali 2 has completely changed the game for not only the South film industry but the entire country, leaving behind every single Bollywood movie, too, in its wake. However, for the amount of South films entering grossing over 100 crores, very few have succeeded in entering the selective 200-crore club. In fact, only a handful of films from Kollywood and Tollywood have hitherto managed to break the 200-crore barrier, which is starkly less as compared to their Bollywood counterparts.

Nevertheless, grossing 200 crores or more is always a big deal and needs to be duly applauded. In that spirit, we’ve decided to compile every Tamil and Telugu film that’s part of the 200-crore club at the box-office along with their total worldwide gross and verdicts. Check the list out below:

Film Lead Star(s) Language Year of Release Worldwide Gross in INR
Dasavathaaram Kamal Haasan Tamil 2008 200 crore
Enthiran Rajinikanth Tamil 2010 289 crore
Vishwaroopam Kamal Haasan Tamil 2013 220 crore
I Chiyaan Vikram Tamil 2015 240 crore
Baahubali: The Beginning


Rana Daggubati


Telugu 2015 602 crore
Kabali Rajinikanth Tamil 2016 350 crore
Baahubali: The Conclusion


Rana Daggubati

Anushka Shetty

Telugu 2017 1710 crore

Thalapathy Vijay

S.J. Suryah

Kajal Aggarwal


Nithya Menen

Tamil 2017 245 crore


With many big film featuring major superstars like Vivegam, Jai Lava Kusa, SPYder, Vishwaroopam 2, Kaala, Mersal, Naa Peru Surya, Dhruva Natchathiram, Bharat Ane Nenu, and 2.O lined up for release, the likelihood of more than a few Kollywood and Tollywood films joining this list is highly possible.
