Thalapathy Vijay starrer Beast released on 13th April took a flying start at the Indian box office. Despite taking one of the biggest Indian openings ever, the film, unfortunately, faced too much negativity on social media with some terming it a disaster even before official numbers came in.
To a much relief of Thalapathy Vijay fans, the actual numbers are now out and it’s a tight slap on those who were spreading fake reports about the film’s opening day numbers. Vijay’s stardom spoke volumes yet again as it toppled biggies like Allu Arjun’s Pushpa and Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam.
As per actual trade figures, Vijay’s Beast garnered a huge total of 49.30 crores nett on day 1 (inclusive of all languages). With this figure, the actor has entered into the list of actors who have their films in the list of highest opening Indian films ever.
Beast is now placed in the 9th spot below Thugs Of Hindostan (52.25 crores). It surpassed Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam (47 crores), which has now moved to the 10th spot. The film has pushed Allu Arjun out of the list as his Pushpa had made 45 crores.

It’s really strange that despite such a huge opening day, none of the trade experts has really reported Beast’s achievement. Nonetheless, it’s a big feat for Thalapathy Vijay and his fans.
Meanwhile, here, at Chiubaba, we rated Beast with a popcorn score of 6 out of 10. “Beast has many flaws and isn’t really a trademark film of Nelson. It’s more of a Thalapathy Vijay‘s one-man show with a regular comic dose. It’s an enjoyable film if you don’t mind watching massy timepass films,” reads the excerpt from the review.
