Despite having a disastrous opening weekend in every other part of India, Kollywood film Beast is making great impact at Tamil Nadu box office as this Thalapathy Vijay and Pooja Hegde starrer is now very close to cross the ₹ 100 crores box office collection mark from its Tamil Nadu biz only. Released on 13 April 2022, Beast indulged into a direct clash with Rocking Star Yash starrer Kannada sequel film KGF Chapter 2 and this face off didn’t went well for this Nelson directorial because its Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi language versions got flopped big time across India.
Thalapathy Vijay had the intentions to project himself as a PAN India Superstar with Beast following the footsteps of Prabhas and Rocking Star Yash but it appears that he chose the wrong film to fulfil his aspirations because even during the pre-release early reviews Beast got blasted by the critics a lot for its poor storyline & bad direction and this is the main reason its Hindi version RAW has flopped big time in Hindi belts of India.
Beast was made with a hefty budget of ₹ 150 crores but after watching the film it appears that most of the cost has been used in paying the fees of both Thalapathy Vijay and Pooja Hegde. Scriptwriter Nelson used the Die Hard formula in Beast and tried to project Vijay as John McClane but it appears that modern day audience is too smart now a days and they want fresh concepts rather then copy paste nonsense.
There isn’t much hope left for Beast as far as the box office growth in coming days in concerned. Both KGF 2 and RRR are clearly thrashing Beast across India and even in Tamil Nadu its craze has gone down a lot because of which we don’t think that Beast has a bright future ahead at Indian box office.
Once again on Tuesday 19 April 2022, Beast has witnessed a slight decline in its box office India biz. Beast Overall Occupancy Rate on 7th Day across India has been estimated around 17% – 22% and these continuously decreasing occupancy rate figures are clearly indicating that this film won’t be able to survive in Indian cinemas for too long.
7th Day (Tuesday) Collection of Beast in India is ₹ 4.10 crores (approximately)
