Sarkar trumps Rangasthalam to become 2018’s highest grossing South Indian film

After a week of its release, Vijay’s Sarkar has successfully crossed the Rs 200 crore mark. The movie continues to do great business, majorly in Tamil Nadu. Hitting screens on Diwali day, the movie opened to massive figures, both in the domestic and international markets. As per collection reports, Sarkar has now emerged as the highest grossing south Indian film. By grossing Rs 217.13 crore till now, the movie has overtaken Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam, which earned Rs 215.70 crore.

Sarkar is only the eighth South Indian film to enter the Rs 200 crore club after Enthiran, I, Baahubali: The Beginning, Kabali, Mersal, Baahubali: The Conclusion and Rangasthalam. The movie has already achieved hit status in the Telugu states and all major overseas centres. However in Kerala, where the star enjoys massive popularity, the movie has failed to capitalize on the record-breaking opening.

Despite the mixed reviews and the controversies, Sarkar has been able to pull in audience in large numbers. The AR Murugadoss directorial is a political drama that stresses on the importance of voting and the need for a strong opposition in a democracy. Several political events that occured in the recent years in Tamil Nadu have been included in the film. The makers have criticised the policy of public accepting money for votes and some of the governments schemes.

The ruling AIADMK organized widespread protests claiming that the movie shows the government’s policies in bad light. Eventually, the makers had to give in and remove a few scenes to avoid further issues. Needless to say, Vijay’s ever growing stardom and the buzz created by the controversies has only worked in the movie’s favour. Sarkar is now well on course to become the highest grossing Tamil film of all-time.
