Beginning in early June, the movie took off like a high-speed train and shattered virtually all of the previous Kollywood records over the following several weeks.

Among the many other milestones, the most notable was surpassing Baahubali 2 by a large margin of around Rs. 40 crores to become the biggest grosser ever in Tamil Nadu. A first for Kollywood in a long time—Enthiran in 2010 was likely the previous one—the movie drew 1 crore footfalls and 1.22 crore admissions to state theatres.

With Rs. 373 crores, the movie surpassed 2.0's previous record of Rs. 288 crores as the most successful Tamil language film ever made.
