Despite the mixed review, the film Puli managed to survive in flying colours over the box office. The Vijay & Sridevi along with Shrutti Haasan film impressed the audience in the south bringing in loads of crowd for the film giving a stiff competition to the Akshay Kumar starrer film Singh Is Bliing. Puli also got a decent response in Mumbai and the western circuits of the country. That’s not all, since the film released worldwide; it was reported to get a low figure in the overseas area.
As per reports, the first weekend box office report for Pilu tolled to around 35 crores, which is a good figure to get with. In fact, as per experts, the film will continue to do better in the south including the states like Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Telangana as well. If you check the worldwide collection for Pilu, it went to around 64 crores. Though most of the reviews were average for the film, yet it managed to do a better performance.
