Though Mersal acquired combined critiques from critics, the movie established Vijay because the numero uno star of Tamil cinema. “In the event you think about the core Tamil Nadu market, Vijay is the primary,” says well-known distributor Siva, who launched the actor’s Nanban, Thuppakki and Kaththi in Trichy Tanjore (TT) space.
“One strong instance for Vijay’s humongous progress in Tamil cinema is that the pre-release enterprise of Sarkar is greater than the lifetime share of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, which is the benchmark of all of the industries in India. Our distributors and theater homeowners are assured that Sarkar will supersede Baahubali 2 in Tamil Nadu. Telugu movies that includes Tollywood Superstars are a minimum of 25 % behind the lifetime assortment of Baahubali 2 in Telugu states and the identical may be stated about Khans in Hindi, however Vijay is the one actor who’s all set to cross the document set by the Rajamouli directorial in Tamil Nadu, which is the actor’s dwelling floor”, says Siva.
Siva, who has been observing Vijay’s profession from the start, says, “At one level of time, there have been many haters for Vijay however slowly he turned the whole lot into optimistic that everyone loves him at the moment and even his common movie like Bairavaa is amassing greater than the tremendous hit movie of others. A very powerful high quality for a numero uno star is that if his movies are screened in a theater, the canteen man, parking contractor and the complicated proprietor ought to see income — Vijay has achieved it lengthy again.”
Siva says Vijay’s market and the distribution worth will improve with every given movie. He has to launch his movies on Diwali to match the expectations. It’s price mentioning right here that Vijay’s new movie with Atlee is scheduled to launch on 2019 Diwali.
Insiders say that Vijay is a producers’ delight as a result of in case the actor’s movie fails on the field workplace, he makes positive to assist them get better the losses incurred. Anand of Ram Muthuram Cinemas says that the craze for Vijay in Tamil Nadu is unmatchable. “Lately, we screened the Sarkar teaser in our screens. The announcement of the screening was solely made round four pm and inside two hours, nearly 1,000 followers gathered in our theater complicated. They got here with music devices and crackers to have a good time the teaser launch. Mersal is probably the most worthwhile movie for theater homeowners. I’m fairly assured about Sarkar’s field workplace efficiency as a result of at the moment, Vijay’s off-screen high quality, together with the way in which he helped the victims of Sterlite protest, his variety gesture of visiting Anitha’s mother and father after she dedicated suicide due to NEET exams, his highly effective speeches in opposition to Jallikattu protest and lots of different issues have created a optimistic picture about him amongst Tamil folks. If Sarkar is full of among the key social points, I’m positive it can hit the bull’s eye,” says Anand.
On the situation of anonymity, among the key distributors and theater homeowners say that the general assortment of Mersal and pre-release enterprise of Sarkar are 50 % greater than the movies of his opponents in Tamil cinema.
Movie historian and producer Dhananjayan says among the many present technology heroes, Vijay is the primary. “Among the many present technology heroes, Vijay is undoubtedly primary. I nonetheless keep in mind within the ’80s, even common movies of Rajinikanth used to yield good income on the field workplace, and the identical factor is going on to Vijay now. Vijay is the one Tamil hero whose movies run for 3 to 4 weeks no matter critiques and content material. The reason being that he has grow to be a family identify in Tamil Nadu. Folks see Vijay’s progress as their progress”, he says.
The Kaatrin Mozhi producer additionally provides that Vijay’s silence is his largest power. Speaking in regards to the pre-release enterprise of Sarkar, Dhananjayan says “Sure, the pre-release distribution rights of all of the areas in Tamil Nadu is greater than the lifetime share of Baahubali 2. I hope Sarkar actually does effectively on the field workplace however the pre-release enterprise is simply too excessive, that it ought to gather on par with Baahubali 2 to succeed in the break-even standing”.
The issue with the expansion of actors like Vijay and Rajinikanth is that for each hit movie, their enterprise simply expands and later, if any of their movie fails on the field workplace, distributors would create pointless bother by asking compensation. “ Distributors ought to perceive that Vijay didn’t improve his remuneration for Sarkar after the large success of Mersal. Nonetheless, distributors have paid one or two crores greater than the lifetime share of Mersal, which places them in peril zone. If Mersal achieved Rs 12 crore share in a single space, distributors ought to have ideally purchased Sarkar for Rs 10 crore however they went forward and acquired it for Rs 13 crore. The purpose to be famous right here is Vijay by no means requested any distributor to purchase his movie for such an enormous worth”.
In the event you have a look at the Tamil Nadu field workplace, Vijay’s movies are doing exceptionally effectively. He has additionally surpassed famous person Rajinikanth’s movies, however the actor is but to make his mark within the Telugu and North Indian markets. For instance, the Tamil Nadu assortment of Vijay’s Mersal is greater than Rajinikanth’s two current movies, Kabali and Kaala. “The sort of market Rajinikanth sir enjoys in Andhra and North India is one thing which is inconceivable for different Tamil actors. However what Vijay sir achieved now could be unbelievable and he’s the primary among the many present technology actors,” says Dhananjayan.
With Sarkar, Vijay can be planning to discover the Telugu market. Although the actor’s Thuppakki, Mersal and Nanban have been dubbed in Telugu, he’s but to determine a robust foothold in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. However, Vijay has a robust field workplace pull in Kerala, European nations and Sri Lanka, that are his fortes. The actor can be slowly proving his field workplace mettle within the US. Mersal grossed $1.eight million and Theri grossed $1.1 million there. After Rajinikanth, Vijay is the one actor who breached the $1 million mark twice within the US.
Followers of Vijay need the actor to additionally enter into Bollywood however Vijay, who is understood for his calculative steps, is planning to discover Tollywood earlier than the Hindi market. Sources say that the actor has suggested his producers to pay attention extra on the Telugu market in future as a result of it’s the solely territory the place he lags behind Rajinikanth in South India.
