"Bairavaa", the Tamil movie which was released on January 12, 2017, is enjoying a decent run at the box-office despite the negative reviews it received from the critics.

This film which has Vijay in the lead role has reportedly collected more than Rs 16.60 Crores on the first day in Tamil Nadu alone, thus marking the biggest opener ever in the career of the actor.

In Chennai, the first show of the began as early as 01:00 AM, and as per credible sources, the film collected 92 lakhs from the city.

The film was released in more than 450 centres all across Tamil Nadu, and theatre statistics indicate that the film will enter the 100 Crore club by the end of the first weekend.

Kerala box-office earnings

In Kerala, Vijay has a huge fan following, and it is reflecting in the collection of this movie. A close source to the movie claimed that the Vijay film had grossed more than 3 Crores on the first day in Kerala, and it has shattered the record created by "Theri" which collected 2.7 Crores on its opening day.

Theater strike in Kerala has negatively impacted the release of this movie, but even in this crisis, "Bairavaa" flew high and made it big at the Mollywood box-office.

"Bairavaa" is reportedly enjoying decent collections from the US, UK and Canada too.

But industry experts predict that the overseas collection figures will get depreciated in the coming days, as the film has failed to impress the class audiences.

The Plot

Bharathan who has previously directed "Azhagiya Tamil Magan" has directed this movie. The film revolves around the story of a young man who fights against the corrupt medical admission system prevailing in the nation.

With adequate commercial elements blended in a socially relevant story, this film has impressed Vijay fans, but it is being panned heavily by viewers who love quality films.

'Vijay 61' is Vijay's next

In the meantime, Vijay recently appeared at a public event with a beard look, and reports claim that it is his new look for the film "Vijay 61" which will be directed by Atlee.
