The Ajith-Siva starrer, Vivegam Movie, billed to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the season had a mixed response in Box Office Collections in last four days it has been in theatres. While it was expected to do well in Chennai where Ajith has his fan base, it has faced stiff competition from Arjun Reddy in Telugu theatres. The small-budget movie has somehow managed to upstage the high profile spy thriller shot in several picturesque locations throughout Europe.
The total earnings on day 4 stood at 28 crores, after a good first three days. In fact, the movie opened to 90 percent occupancy in theatres on the first day, and managed to rake in as much as 66 crores in the first two days. The overseas collection has also been decent, although the movie has been upstaged by the Telugu movie Arjun Reddy. As for Saturday, the movie had made as much as $411,000 in the United States.
The movie was released in over 3000 theatres across the country, and it has found resonance in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh where it is reportedly running to packed houses. The movie tracks the exploits of the badass intelligence officer played by Ajith, and is written and directed by Siva, who has partnered with Ajith plenty of times in the past to produce super hit movies.
The movie also features Vivek Oberoi, who makes debut in Tamil movies with this production and also Akshara Hassan, Kamal Hassan’s second daughter. Kajal Aggarwal plays the pregnant wife of the swashbuckling Interpol officer played by Ajith.
