    By Ramchander

    Kochadaiiyaan aka Kochadaiyaan has become the fastest 50 scorer of 2014 in Kollywood, thereby breaking the records of Vijay starrer Jilla and Ajith Kumar's Veeram. Yes, the Tamil film has hit the half century at Box Office with bang on Tuesday (May 23). The combined collection of six languages have crossed the 50-crore mark at collection centres and reached Rs 51 crores by the end of Tuesday (May 27).

    The Tamil movie hit the screens worldwide on May 23 to a record number of screens. It was released in about 3000 screens (6 languages). As predicted, Kochadaiiyaan got earth-shattering response for the Tamil version but the Telugu, Hindi and other versions have failed to reach the audience. Yet, it managed to earn Rs 42 crores in the first weekend.

    The average occupancy for the Tamil version is 95% in Tamil Nadu in the first weekend. In foreign countries, the occupancy varied but Friday, Saturday and Sunday were good in the US and Malaysia. This helped Kochadaiiyaan to register a fantastic opening at Box Office as the film raked in Rs 42 crore at worldwide Box Office.

    On Monday and Tuesday, Kochadaiiyaan has managed to keep the momentum and has added close to nine crores to its tally to reach 51 crore collections. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...

    Occupancy Came Down

    A trader from Tamil Nadu says, "Occupancy came down on Tuesday. Theatres had sold out tickets till Monday. Hence, the film managed to retain the good occupancy rate in Chennai. But Tuesday saw a dip in business."

    No Comparisions

    Traders say that Kochadaiiyaan business cannot to be compared to the collection of a typical Rajinikanth's film because the latest film is an animation film. Even then, it has managed to pull audience to theatres and make thunderous business at Box Office.

    International Circuits

    The point many are saying is that Kochadaiiyaan has done good business in international circuits. More than 15 crores of the revenue have come from foreign countries.
