Looks like Kamal Haasan's persuasion with content driven films is finally bearing the fruit called money as the first three days(weekend) box office collections of Papanasam is reportedly impressive.

Sadly, the 'Ulaganayagan' is not known for his box office records, not at least when he delivers a content based movie. But thanks to Papanasam's strong theme, the film has reportedly grossed ₹1.34 crore from its first three days in Chennai alone.

Papanasam First Three Days Box Office Collections: Achieves Half Of Dhrishyam's Total Gross!

While it was anticipated that the movie might collect close to 8 crores from the whole of Tamil Nadu, it has exceeded the expectations by a long way, collecting an impressive ₹14.7 crore, according to a trade source.

From the remaining parts of India, the mystery-thriller has grossed ₹2.25 crore and the contribution from foreign countries stands at ₹5.45 crore.

Considering that the film was released in only 750 screens worldwide, the total weekend collections of Papanasam which amounts to ₹22.4 crore (approx) is a phenomenal record for any Tamil movie, let alone a non-commercial flick.

It is also to be noted that the original film Drishyam starring Mohanlal had grossed ₹6.7 crore worldwide, from its first eight days.

Can It Reach The 100 Crore Mark?

If at all the movie manages to reach the 100 crore mark, box office history could be re-written, for it is absolutely rare for an undecorated movie like Papanasam sans any usual 'masala' elements to pile up ₹100 crore in its box office.
