Maharaja Box Office: a HIT during Weekend Collections

The Tamil film “Maharaja” has achieved significant success at the Indian box office, marking an impressive trajectory right from its opening weekend. The film’s performance has solidified its status as a hit within a short span, a refreshing change after the initial four months of the year passed without any Tamil film achieving hit status.

Maharaja Box Office Triumph

Starring Vijay Sethupathi in a leading role, “Maharaja” grossed an impressive Rs. 25 crore across India during its first weekend. The film commenced strongly on Friday, collecting Rs. 5.50 crore on its opening day. This momentum continued into the weekend, with substantial gains observed on both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday particularly stood out by surpassing Rs. 10 crore, effectively doubling the film’s Friday earnings.

Regional Success Beyond Tamil Nadu

Unlike many Tamil films released earlier in the year, “Maharaja” enjoyed robust performance not only within Tamil Nadu but also across other regions, particularly in the Telugu states where the Telugu dubbed version garnered significant traction over the weekend.

Breakdown of Weekend Collections

Tamil Nadu – “Maharaja” grossed an impressive Rs. 15 crore during its first three days. This figure places it as the fourth highest-grossing film of the year in the region, following closely behind other notable releases such as “Captain Miller,” “Aranmanai 4,” and “Garudan.”

Andhra Pradesh – Telangana (AP – TS) – The film also performed exceptionally well in the Telugu states, amassing over Rs. 6 crore in box office collections over the weekend. This achievement is particularly noteworthy given the strong trend it exhibited, a rarity in the region.

Karnataka – “Maharaja” secured box office earnings amounting to Rs. 2 crore. This figure reflects a solid performance and underscores the film’s appeal beyond its primary Tamil-speaking audience.

Kerala –  The film witnessed a notable surge in box office collections over the weekend following a modest start. It eventually accumulated Rs. 1.40 crore, indicating growing popularity and acceptance among audiences in the state.

Rest of India – Even outside the Southern states, “Maharaja” managed to capture attention, albeit on a smaller scale, securing Rs. 0.35 crore in box office collections. This contribution further bolstered its overall India-wide earnings.
