Last week was all about Ajith Kumar‘s Vivegam! The film had taken the world by storm as it released in at least 3000 theatres . Ajith Kumar was finally returning to the silver screen this time with a slick, hi-fi actioner. He teamed up with Siva for the third time. Most of the film was shot in picturesque locales across Europe. The film also starred Kajal Aggarwal, Akshara Haasan and Vivek Oberoi. Post its release on 24th August, the film received more or less positive reviews – many were in praise of Ajith’s new found fit avatar and the film’s international appeal. The film can now boast of another achievement – It’s the first film to cross the Rs 100 crore mark after the GST regime. Yes, as of August 29th, the film grossed more than 100 crore at the box office worldwide – It raked in Rs 69 crore at the Indian box office, and it raked in Rs Rs 36.50 Cr overseas. The film specially has opened to a phenomenal response at the US box office. Also at the Chennai BO, it beat Rajinikanth’s Kabali and even SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 at the end of its three day weekend! Looks like, Ajith-Siva have struck their third hat-trick at the box office after Vedhalam and Veeram.

However it remains to be seen whether Ajith Kumar’s Vivegam is a profitable venture as the cost of production was high. Having said that, the film had reportedly earned Rs 120 crore as part of its pre -release business deals. So, Vivegam might just have turned out to be the first big hit after GST!
For Vivegam, Ajith Kumar took on the role of an international spy, he worked extensively on his physique for this role. That’s why the first look starring Ajith Kumar had him flaunting six pack abs for the first time! The actor has never looked fitter, not to forget hotter. Ajith-Vivek’s face-off was praised hugely by critics. Kajal Aggarwal- Ajith Kumar’s chemistry was also given a thumbs up by fans. Here’s what Bollywoodlife had to say about Vivegam: Ajith -Siva promised a high octane, racy actioner and Vivegam is just that. Movie’s international appeal, Ajith Kumar in top form, and groovy BGM are reasons enough to catch this actioner!
