Atlee is back after his previous venture Mersal in 2017. Atlee’s debut as director was with a superhit movie, ‘Raja Rani’ in 2013 and he has decided to venture into the action drama genre with Bigil, starring Vijay, Nayanthara, Vivek, Yogi Babu and Jackie Shroff . Ahead of its opening weekend closure, Vijay is receiving a lot of hype for Vijay’s much awaited movie as well as for Atlee and Vijay’s combo which produced ‘Bigil’.

However, bad news awaits the makers of Vijay’s movie “Bigil” as Tamilrockers, a leading torrent site for movies download has already leaked the full movie online.
Will Bigil’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Box Office Collections?
Bigil is one of the most awaited action family entertainer movies with Vijay playing the lead. Considering the amount of expectations from Vijay’s fans at stake, the early pirated release of Vijay movie online for free download, is likely to dent its earnings.
As emphasized earlier, modern day movies depend a lot on opening week collections as a significant source of return on investment. With the advent of Tamilrockers and other online movie streaming sites, film makers face a daunting task of dealing with this situation.
However, Bigil is hyped well enough and the cast of Vijay in a significant role will definitely attract his fan base to the theaters to watch the movie. Also, Bigil promises to be a gripping action thriller and watching it on a mere 480P or 720P print will not do justice for the entertainment at stake, we believe.
On the other hand, first hand reactions of Bigil are promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Bigil on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run. Incidentally, the movie Bigil is produced under the banner of AGS Entertainment. Most of the recent movies produced in the Tamil movie industry have been released on Tamilrockers on the day of the release.
Bigil Movie Hit or Flop? First Day Collection
First day collection for Bigil is predicted to be INR 28 crores in all box offices. The first day overseas collection is pegged at INR 6 crores in all languages.
Bigil has been open to mixed reviews. However, the festival holidays is likely to boost up its occupancy in the first week.
Total Worldwide Gross: 200 Cr(expected)
The Box office collection shows it has a strong opening and since being a long weekend we expect it to hold the Box Office for weekend. The word of mouth about the movie might help in long run and let’s hope it does well at Box Office. We will update the Box Office collections as soon as we get more updates.
