    Tamil star Vijay has a huge fan following in Bangalore. It was proved once again with his latest movie Thalaivaa getting massive response from audience in the Garden City. The movie was released in Tamil Nadu on Tuesday (August 20), but it hit the screens worldwide on August 9.

    His star power has worked big time in Bangalore. As the film was not released in Tamil Nadu, fans of Vijay were forced to come to the city to watch the flick. As a result, the movie has registered a stunning figure at Karnataka Box Office.

    In Karnataka, Thalaivaa has earned Rs 5.7 crores (both Tamil and Telugu versions) at Box Office in the first week. The distributor's share is Rs 2.7 crores, says a source. In Bangalore, the Tamil movie had done great business and it is expected to have collected more than Rs 1.5 crore.

    In the following weekend, the occupancy for the recently-released Thalaivaa was close to 80% in most of the multiplexes. And the single screens ran into packed house in the second weekend. Multiplexes such as Cinemax, Gopalan and PVR witnessed cent percent collections in the weekend. Continue reading the story about the movie on the slideshow...

    Ban Becomes Boon For Bangalore BO

    As Thalaivaa was not released in Tamil Nadu, the movie managed to do good business in the Bangalore Box Office. People in the border regions visited Karnataka to watch the flick.

    Mixed Reviews

    Thalaivaa has opened up to mixed reviews from critics and audience. But it has not affected the collections in the first weekend.


    Thalaivaa has got the second best opening at Bangalore Box office after Kamal Hassan's Vishwaroopam in 2013. But the latest movie could not make the impact like Vijay's earlier movies Thuppakki and Nanban here.


    It has to be noted that Thalaivaa could not get maximum screens in Bangalore because of other language biggies.


    Thalaivaa faced tough competition from Hindi movie Chennai Express and Kannada movies Tony and Silk Sakkath Hot.

    Close To 30 Screens

    In spite of increasing the number of screens during the release, there were severe shortage of tickets in Bangalore. Thalaivaa was released in close to 30 screens in the city alone.

    Aditi Brunda

    Thalaivaa is distributed by Boopal Reddy of Aditi Brunda. He acquired the theatrical rights of Karnataka for a good price.


    Thalaivaa is directed by AL Vijay. Vijay, Amala Paul, Sathyaraj and Santhanam are in the key roles. The film is produced by Chandra Prakash Jain.
