Singam 3 and Bairavaa were failures in Kerala Box Office
We had recently reported that Suirya’s latest release Singam 3 aka Si3 was a failure in the Telugu box office. The movie was bought for record price in the Telugu speaking States of Andhra Pradesh and Telengana, considering Suriya’s massive fan following.
Now, according to latest reports from trade sources, the Hari directorial has flopped at the Kerala box office as well. Si 3 is the third installment in the popular Singam franchise. It was released amid huge expectations on February 9.
The movie features two female leads in Anushka Shetty and Shruti Haasan. It was opened to mixed reviews from the critics who pointed out the lack of novelty and the mass masala formula as the negatives. After a good opening weekend in Kerala, the audience count went down subsequently in the following weekend. The movie has grossed just Rs 1 crore on it’s entire second week. On a whole, the movie had grossed Rs 7.25 crore at the Kerala box office. Trade sources suggest that the distributors would have suffered big a loss as the movie was bought for an hefty amount.
Similarly, Vijay’s last release Bairavaa was also an underwhelming affair at the Kerala box office. The movie, released during the Pongal holidays in January was directed by Azhagiya Tamizh Magan fame Bharhathan. Despite registering a great opening in Kerala, the movie flopped as it found no takers after the second week. And with the release of Malayalam movies like Dulquer Salmaan’s Jomonte Suvisheshangal and Mohanlal’s Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol, Bairavaa could not make any sort of impact in Kerala.
