Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan has emerged as one of the biggest hits of 2014. The movie, which is made with a huge budget, is heading towards recovering the production cost of the multilingual movie. While the Tamil version has done reasonably well, the other versions of the flick like the Hindi and Telugu have performed badly at collection centres.
Kochadaiiyaan was released in above 2000 screens worldwide on May 23. The release was delayed a few times before hitting the screens. Yet, the superstar's fans welcomed the Tamil flick grandly and gave a fantastic opening at Box Office. Not only in Tamil Nadu, it got warm reception in countries like US, UK and Malaysia.
In the opening weekend, Kochadaiiyaan made 42 crores worldwide from all six versions. The lion's share came from Tamil Nadu where it made more than Rs 25 crores in the first three days. Its performance was good in Karnataka and decent in Kerala. In Andhra Pradesh, it could not do well for many reasons.
Despite getting negative reviews from a section of media and audience over the poor technology used in the movie, Kochadaiiyaan has done well at Box Office. Here, we bring you the working factors for its success at collection centres.
