Vikram Box Office Collection

Vikram Box Office Collection Day 1: Kamal Haasan starrer recorded the third-highest of 2022 at the Tamil Nadu box office.

Kamal Haasan’s Vikram has taken a very good start at the Tamil Nadu box office. As per early estimates, the movie collected Rs 20.61 Crores (Gross) on its opening day. With this, it becomes the third-highest opening day grosser of 2022 after Valimai (Rs 32 Crore) and Beast (Rs 37 Crore). Vikram is now the highest opening day grosser for Kamal Haasan.

The film is released on around 550 cinemas in Tamil Nadu. Headlined by Kamal Haasan, Vikram also stars Vijay Sethupathi and Fahadh Faasil. Lokesh Kangaraj’s crime thriller has taken a solid opening at the Tamil Nadu box office with occupancy around 60%-70% in the morning shows. It witnessed good growth as the day progressed. In the night shows, the action-packed crime drama witnessed massive growth, especially in Chennai multiplexes.

Outside Tamil Nadu, the movie opened well in other Southern states. It recorded decent opening day numbers in Kerala and Karnataka. In Kerala, Kamal Haasan starrer collected around Rs 5.1 Crore (Gross). In Telugu states, the movie recorded big numbers on its opening day. However, the Hindi dubbed version of the movie hasn’t opened well. It was a total washout with collections of around Rs 30 lakhs.

In India, Vikram collected around Rs 34 Crore (Gross) on its opening day with Rs 20.61 Crore (Gross) coming from the home state, Tamil Nadu. In the USA, Kamal Haasan starrer records the highest premiere and opening day numbers for a Kollywood movie. Trade expert Ramesh Bala tweeted:

Overall, the opening day worldwide collection of Vikram is around Rs 48.68 Crore. This is a good opening and one can expect the movie to cross Rs 250 Crore in its lifetime.

Vikram Budget and Box Office economics

The total budget of Vikram including various costs is around Rs 150 Crore. The movie has already recovered Rs 201 Crore through theatrical, streaming, and satellite rights. So, even before its release, Vikram is a profitable venture for its producers.

Now coming to box office economics, Vikram should gross Rs 206 Crore worldwide to become a box office hit. The Hindi version should gross Rs 30 Crore to be called a hit.
