Among the movies of Vijay, it is Theri that registered the highest opening day business from multiplexes by earning Rs 12.87 lakh. The film has released in a record 3,500 plus screens across the globe and is receiving largely positive reviews. The record is that of breaking the opening day number of Superstar Rajinikanth in Tamil Nadu.
With almost 100% occupancy in the prime locations and 75-85% occupancy in smaller areas in the opening shows, the movie was speculated to break records. Pulimurugan went on to fetch above 4 Crores on its opening day and now the film is at the 5th spot in the list of top day 1 grossers. Even in the overseas centres, Mersal has done well.

In Kerala, the film released in 350 screens, surpassing the previous record of 320 screens by Baahubali 2. Powered by his well versed acting ability in triple roles, the movie is well on its way to becoming a huge blockbuster with fans and general audiences going gaga over the mass entertainer.
