’7aam Arivu’ beats ‘Velayudham’ at the box office!

7aam Arivu earned about Rs 37 crore, while Velayudham managed to collect Rs 31 crore in the first week

Tamil cinemas were on a roll this Diwali with tough competition between Suriya and Vijay’s films 7aam Arivu and Velayudham respectively. But the box office report easily points out to which film made it and which tanked. Suriya’s 7aam Arivu stood out as the clear winner according to the opening week sales. The directorial by AR Murugadoss, in spite of getting mixed reviews, managed to rock the BO. According to trade pundits, 7aam Arivu earned about Rs 37 crore, whereas Velayudham managed to collect Rs 31 crore in the first week. 7aam Arivu had the advantage of 1,000 prints worldwide while Velayudham was released in about 650 theatres only. But Velayudham began to garner attention after critics gave thumbs up and the word-of-mouth spread. In addition to all this, Shahrukh Khan’s RA.One dubbed in Tamil has also been rated at No 3 at the Tamil box office. In about three days, RA.One managed to collect about Rs 6 crore. Coming back to the south films, apparently, the collections of 7aam Arivu are expected to go slow as theatre owners plan to increase the screenings of Velayudhum by reducing Suriya’s film screenings. The entire dynamics will change after that. Let’s wait and watch what the collections for the second week would turn out to be!

    this is wrong information about velayudham and 7aum arivu,, 7aum arive has grossed 40.25 crores in 6 days from 1000 screens worldwide ,, on the other hand velayudham has grossed 40 crores in 5 days from 850 screens ,,,, so the clear winner hear is velayudham

    • vishnu

      a slight mistake velayudham has only 650 screens and earned 40 crores

  • Arthi

    Terrible movie. This year is not good at all for surya! Back to back Disasters(Raktha Charithram,7aum Arivu),I hopefully wish he gives a strong comeback next year with his Maatran !

    • pandi

      diwaliku ellarum entertainmentana film paka virumbinathunalayum ithu innoru dasavatharam (science and new subject)mariyum irukarathala this happened i think songs also very boring invelayutham songs locations ellam pakka cutea irunduchu 7th sensela yamma yamma keka nalla iruku but other than that other songs below average ringa ringa over crowd and over noise

  • Murali

    Vijay’s velayudham is far more interesting than Surya’s 7′am arivu. With one factor about Bodhidharma that many people are not aware that he is Tamilian does not show that people are idiots. According to the story he helped Chinese people rather than people of Tamilnadu. When he has not served the people where he was born how can you expect people to remember him here in Tamilnadu. Mother Teresa is very famous in India rather than to the country where she was born coz of his service to the nation. Once we can agree of hypnotism in that movie, but repeating the same thing till the end is sick. I watched 7′am arivu first then Velayudham, I prefer to give Vijay an applause for given an good entertainer with a message.

    • ben

      are u a indian.. i think u r a neighbour contry.. thatsy u telling like// what a wonderful movie 7am arivu.. im proud to be tamilan as well as indian.. we only teach karate all over world. im vijay fan.. eventhough i like 7 m arivu more than velayutham.. i really praise to surya and murugadoss ti gave such a wonderful movie.

    Vijay go to politics.Don’t come for acting.Santanam do better comedies but in velayutham with vijay he cant do better.Vijay take part in all the scenes, does not give importance to others.He wants to do everything.mokka vijay

    • don
