Tamil Cinema’s Highest Opening-Day Grossers At The Box-Office

Box-Office Kollywood Top

It goes without saying that the opening-day collection one-of-the-best indicators of where a film is headed, more so when talking about big-budget movies featuring big moviestars. Admittedly, there are instances when a film’s business rises after lackluster day one numbers due to positive word-of-mouth and favorable reviews, but such cases are rare and occur mostly with small, content-driven films. And with all due respect and copious love to such dark horses, the fact of the matter is that they can never come close to the dizzy peaks of a film that opens massively and end up doing thumping business.

Even though some of these huge openers crash on account of deplorable reviews and mediocre word-of-mouth, the truth remains that the trade eagerly looks forward to such films because no movie industry can survive let alone thrive sans their contribution.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the highest opening day grossers in Tamil cinema:

Film Main Star (s) Worldwide Gross (INR)
Kabali Rajinikanth 87.50 crore
Lingaa Rajinikanth, Anushka Shetty 39 crore
I Chiyaan Vikram 36 crore
Enthiran Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan 30 crore
Vivegam Ajith, Kajal Aggarwal 33.08 crore
Theri Vijay, Samantha Ruth Prabhu 28.46 crore
Bairavaa Vijay, Keerthy Suresh 28 crore
Kaththi Vijay, Samantha Ruth Prabhu 26 crore
Si3 Suriya, Anushka Shetty 25 crore
Vedalam Ajith, Shruti Haasan 22 crore
24 Suriya, Samantha Ruth Prabhu 21.80 crore

 

Fingers crossed that in the future, Kollywood is able to generate even bigger opening-day numbers than the ones compiled here.
