    Sarkar Box Office Collections Wrong? Are Trade Trackers Faking The Figures?

    |

    The charming Vijay is arguably one of the most revered stars in the Tamil film industry today. 'Thalapathy', as fans like to call him, enjoys a strong fan following thanks to his charismatic personality and mass hero image. At present, he is in the limelight because of his latest big release Sarkar. The film hit the screens on November 6, 2018. And, as per the trade reports, it opened to a phenomenal response at the box office. Now, the latest news is that the numbers might be incorrect or even fake.

    Are The Figures Wrong?

    As per the initial reports, Sarkar zoomed past the Rs 200 Crore mark the Worldwide box office in 2 days and set a new record. However, according to a Twitter user, the numbers are a bit hard to digest. The fan states that the Hindi biggie Thugs Of Hindostan released on 7000 screens and managed to collect Rs 100 Crore in 3 days. Sarkar was released on 3800 screens and this makes it hard to believe that it collected the same amount in 2 days.

    Did Controversies Derail Sarkar?

    Regardless of whether this speculation is true or not, the fact remains that Sarkar's Tamil Nadu collections took a beating post the massive protests by the AIADMK cadre. The ruling party claimed that Varalaxmi's character was based on Jayalalithaa and it had the potential to affect Amma's legacy. Moreover, the decision to chop off the controversial scenes too seems to have gone against Sarkar.

    The general feeling is that Sarkar is a decent film that does justice to Vijay's 'mass hero' image'. However, at the same time, some fans have pointed out that it is not as good as Kaththi and Thuppakki. The political statements too have not gone down too have not clicked with all and sundry. As such, the WOM is just okay and this too raises some doubts about the credibility of the figures being circulated.

    To Conclude...

    Sarkar needs to collect nearly Rs 150 Crore at the TN box office in order to be a hit for majority of the stakeholders. If the claims about the collections being wrong are true then it indicates that Sarkar is already on a weak wicket. Enough said!
