Iru Mugan 3 Days Box Office Collection
The actioner starring Vikram, Nayanthara and Nithya Menen is directed by Anand Shankar. There was buzz around Iru Mugan (double face), courtesy Vikram’s double role. He was playing the hero and the villain in the movie and that’s something the veteran had tried on before. On September 8, the movie hit theatres all around the world along with its dubbed Telugu version Inkokkadu. The movie received mixed reviews, and managed to collect Rs 5.25 crore on its opening day in Tamil Nadu. Now this collection is bigger than Vikram’s previous film earnings – 10 Endrathukulla (5 crores) by a margin, but it is far behind when compared to Rajinikanth’s Kabali (21.50 crores), Ajith Kumar’s Vedalam (15.50 crores) & Vijay’s Theri (13.10 crores).
On day 2, according to reports, the film managed to add another Rs 4.5 crores, thus totalling to Rs 9.75 crore in Tamil Nadu. Now, we are yet to see what its opening weekend collection will be like. Reportedly, theatres are filling in fast with advance bookings. So the movie can hope for a decent opening weekend collection. At the Kerala Box office, Mohanlal’s Oppam 9s in the lead followed by Prithviraj’s Oozham and Vikram’s Iru Mugan. Reportedly, all three films have begun on a good note at the Kerala BO. At the worldwide box office, the movie’s earnings have surprisingly been low, collecting only $35000 (Rs 23 lakhs approx) from preview shows.
Here’s what the Tamil distributor abroad had tweeted by per a leading portal- “EKSI #Irumugan $948 from 17 compared to #Inkokkadu $2102 from 16 screens – advance booking for premiere!” Iru Mugan is a spy actioner directed by Anand Shankar. Only Vikram’s LOVE avatar has garnered praise. The movie has turned out nothing like its trailer, which had garnered a huge hype! Harris Jayaraj’s Background score was on the mark in this spy actioner.
On Saturday, the movie started the day on almost similar note and being weekend it witnessed little rise from evening shows. As per the report, it added the amount of 5.75 crores* to its account on Day 3. With this total collection of Iru Mugan till Saturday has become 15.50 crores* on domestic box office. Sunday is expected to result in higher but with such slow pace, the movie won’t have enough hold in weekdays.
