“Nelson Dilipkumar’s ‘Jailer’, Featuring Rajinikanth, Achieves Remarkable Third Weekend in India; Poised to Join the INR 400 Crore Gross Milestone with Sustained Performance.”
- Robust Third Weekend: ‘Jailer’ maintains its box office dominance in India, delivering a strong performance during its third weekend.
- Impressive Collection: The cumulative Indian box office earnings of ‘Jailer’ reach a noteworthy INR 376 crores post the conclusion of the third weekend.
- On-Screen Availability: Enthusiasts can catch the riveting experience of ‘Jailer’ at a local cinema near them.
Nelson Dilipkumar’s directorial venture, ‘Jailer,’ featuring the iconic Rajinikanth, has yet again secured a formidable weekend at the Indian box office, amassing an approximate sum of Rs. 24 crores. As the third weekend concluded, the film’s domestic earnings reached an impressive Rs. 376 crores. The global reception has been equally impressive, with an additional USD 23 million (approx. Rs. 190 crores) garnered from overseas markets, leading to an overall worldwide box office tally of around Rs. 566 crores.
Potential Milestone in Tamil Nadu
‘Jailer’ is poised to ascend to the position of the second highest-grossing film in Tamil Nadu. Despite a 60 percent drop from its second weekend, the film demonstrated a relatively better performance within the state, with a drop of nearly 50 percent. Outside Tamil Nadu, the movie faced competition from local releases, resulting in a more pronounced decline. In Tamil Nadu, the third weekend witnessed collections of Rs. 13.50 crores, just slightly behind ‘Vikram’ (Rs. 14.80 crores). Extrapolating from ‘Vikram’s’ post-third-weekend collections of Rs. 24 crores, ‘Jailer’ is projected to garner between Rs. 15-20 crores, potentially culminating in a final tally of Rs. 190-195 crores within the state. This achievement would rank second, trailing only ‘PS1’ (Rs. 222 crores), and surpassing ‘Vikram’ (Rs. 181 crores).
Box Office Performance Breakdown
The box office journey of ‘Jailer’ unfolds as follows:
- Week One: Rs. 263.50 crores (spanning 9 days)
- Week Two: Rs. 88.50 crores
- 3rd Friday: Rs. 5.50 crores
- 3rd Saturday: Rs. 8.50 crores
- 3rd Sunday: Rs. 10 crores
- Total: Rs. 376 crores
Aiming for Rs. 400 Crores
The trajectory of ‘Jailer’ sets it on course to join the elite club of Kollywood films with earnings surpassing Rs. 400 crores in India, a feat previously achieved solely by ‘2.0.’ Diverging from ‘2.0,’ wherein the Hindi version played a pivotal role, ‘Jailer’s’ Hindi version has contributed a modest Rs. 6 crores. This accomplishment underscores the film’s stature as the most substantial Tamil production in South India, without significant Hindi support. If the film continues to exceed expectations in select territories, the possibility of surpassing Rs. 600 crores on a global scale looms large.
Territorial Earnings Breakdown
The geographical distribution of ‘Jailer’s’ box office collections is as follows:
- Tamil Nadu: Approx. Rs. 175 crores
- Andhra Pradesh/Telangana: Rs. 78 crores
- Karnataka: Rs. 59 crores
- Kerala: Rs. 51.50 crores
- North India: Rs. 12.50 crores
- Total: Rs. 376 crores
