Over the opening weekend, “Ghilli” achieved an impressive worldwide gross of close to Rs. 8 crores, with Tamil Nadu contributing Rs. 4.3 crores to the total. What’s more remarkable is that the film maintained strong momentum on its second day, adding more than Rs. 3 crores gross. The Tamil Nadu gross now stands at over Rs. 7.5 crores, while the worldwide gross has reached 12 crores, making it a record-breaking re-release.

These figures are significant, with “Ghilli” crossing the double-digit gross threshold, a new achievement for re-releases. Despite today being a working day, the bookings continue to be robust, offering relief to theater owners and demonstrating the film’s enduring appeal.

Starring Vijay, the movie tells the story of a young man who takes on a ruthless factionist in a Kabaddi setting. The memorable performances, coupled with Vidyasagar’s chart-topping music, made “Ghilli” a massive blockbuster 20 years ago. The success of its re-release confirms its place as a beloved classic in Tamil cinema history.
