The film has bettered the collections of the opening day on Sunday, showing the way forward at the TN box office.
Vikram’s TN collections have already made it the all-time number one for a Kamal Haasan film, as it has beaten Dasavatharam which was the star’s best earner so far. Due to this sheer craze for the film all round, the 100 crore mark in Tamil Nadu is possible during the weekdays itself, as there is a big demand for tickets in the evening and night shows all round the state.

Karnataka has reported with collections of more than 11 crores while the Telugu states have pinned more than 10 crores. With the ROI contributing close to 3 crores, Vikram’s superb collections are a sight to behold.
