Opening of Kaala.

Kaala opening weekend box office collection:




Superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala has topped the Indian box office in its extended opening weekend with a decent four-day gross of Rs 72.5 crore. The film, which is directed by Pa Ranjith and produced by Wunderbar Films, received a simultaneous release worldwide on 7 June in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Lyca Productions presented the film in Tamil Nadu.


Despite the low key initial buzz, a non-festival day and intermittent controversies surrounding the film, Kaala raced past the Rs 100 crore mark worldwide in just four days of its theatrical run, proving the box office mettle of Rajinikanth once again. The worldwide gross of the Dharavi-set socio-political drama, which marked the second consecutive collaboration of Rajinikanth and Ranjith after Kabali, currently stands at a whopping Rs 114 crore in four days.
JA Bayona's summer tentpole Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom surpassed expectations to score a $7.9 million (Rs 53.3 crore) opening bow in India and took the second spot at the extended domestic weekend box office.

Kaala Box Office Day 1:

It is expected that like any movie of Rajinikanth Kaala, too, will pick up in the coming days.

Rajinikanth's new movie Kaala that released today has reportedly registered the lowest box office collection for a Rajinikanth movie. The much-awaited movie in which Rajinikanth teams up with his Kabali director Pa Ranjith released across 2,000 theatres in the country. One of the deciding factors is the Cauvery controversy that led to a ban on the movie in Karnataka. The movie has not released in most theatres in Karnataka. Member of Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council (TFPC), Vishal Krishna told IANS, "Kaala has been unnecessarily embroiled in the Cauvery controversy. How much this has affected the film's opening, I don't know. What I do know is that at the end of the day, Rajini sir is Rajini sir."
Vishal said that any film of Rajinikanth evokes a massive response and it is likely that Kaala is also going to pick up. He added that it Rajinikanth's fans will make sure that the film does well. Already, according to reports Kaala has collected Rs 230 crore even before the release of the movie through its theatrical and music rights. Kaala has earned Rs 155 crore from theatrical rights, Rs 70 crore from broadcast rights and Rs 5 crore from music rights. Among the states where Kaala earned higher revenue from theatricals rights are Tamil Nadu Rs 70 crore, Andhra Pradesh Rs 33 crore and Kerala Rs 10 crore. The overseas theatrical rights have been sold at Rs 45 crores, the Hindustan Times reported.
Vishal, however, also pointed out that this is the month of Ramzan and a significant amount of the audience would refrain from watching films during this period - even if it is Rajinikanth's movie.


Things might get a bit more challenging in the coming days for Kaala as it is clashing with Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom that is already a blockbuster franchise globally and stars Chris Pratt who commands a strong following, thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy series. There are also a lot of takers of the franchise in India that, additionally, has Steven Speilberg's name attached to it.
Set in Mumbai's Dharavi, this gangster movie also stars Nana Patekar as the antagonist, Huma IQureshi and Pankaj Tripathi. Kaala is produced by Dhanush.

Kaala movie release highlights: Review, audience reaction and more

Kaala movie review and release: Here's what critics, celebrities and fans said about Rajinikanth starrer Kaala. Read our blog for all the updates about the Pa Ranjith directorial.


The wait is over. SuperstarRajinikanth today returned to cinema halls with Kaala, a gangster flick set in the backdrop of Mumbai’s Dharavi. This is the second consecutive outing of director Pa Ranjith with the Thalaivar after 2016’s Kabali. The film has had to deal with several issues in the run-up to its release. As a matter of fact, it has been jumping one controversy to the next, since the day the filmmakers began filming it in Mumbai.
The major problem that Kaala faced was in Karnataka, where Rajinikanth had garnered the ire of pro-Kannada activists with his pro-Tamil Nadu stance on the contentious Cauvery water issue.

CRITICS REVIEWS

  • Filmibeat.com
    It is always a special joy to see the actor in Rajinikanth take the front seat. In Kaala, we get to witness this once again with the film offering umpteen number of moments to showcase his exceptional acting skills.

    Pa Ranjith's credentials as a writer and a directer is reverred and he is one such film-maker who doeasn't shy away from putting his ideologies and political views through his films. 

    Pa Ranjith has given the right framework for the film to flourish on. The movie has an inherent dark mode and that stays rooted throughout the film.
  • Times Of India
    Ranjith gives a spin to the classic white-is-pure-and-black-is-evil logic. Here, Ram is bad and Ravan is good. Watch out for the confrontation scenes between Nana Patekar and Rajinikanth. They are total paisa vasool.

    Our overall critic’s rating is not an average of the sub scores below.
  • Indian Express
    Kaala is loaded with symbolism. The frames are painted with blue (Ambedkar’s colour), black (the colour of protest) and red (the colour of revolution); so is Rajini who is predominantly dressed in these colours. Kaala’s mythological references are also too obvious to miss.

    Kaala isn’t a film about a gangster but a film about revolution. And Ranjith stays true to his objective.

    Kaala is entirely different from other Superstar movies. Karikaalan is energetic. Rajinikanth in full form. Ranjiths screenplay. Pa Ranjith is back with a strong plot and has conveyed with all commercial elements. Terrific work by Santhosh Narayanan BGM. Watchable.
