Singam 2 box office collects Rs 9.25 crore on opening day

Suriya’s film has mixed reviews from critics but the audience seems to be enjoying the movie

Suriya Sivakumar-starrer Tamil action-drama Singam 2, which released worldwide on July 5, has got a good opening. It collected Rs 9.25 crore on the release day in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka despite getting criticism for being too lengthy.

“Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 45 crore, Singam 2 collected a total of Rs 9.25 crore on the day of release from Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka,” said trade analyst Trinath.

The critics said Hari Gopalakrishnan’s directorial venture as over commercial and extremely lengthy, but it seems that the viewers are enjoying the film.

The success of Singam 2 comes as a respite for Suriya after his last two releases – 7am Arivu and Maattrraan failed to keep the cash registers ringing.

Singam 2 is a sequel to highly successful Singam. Gopalakrishnan went behind the camera to helm both the films.

Besides Suriya, Singam 2 also features Anushka Shetty, Hansika Motwani, Nasser, Mukesh Rishi, Danny Sapani, Rahman, Radha Ravi, Santhanam, Vivek and Anjali.
