Here is the box office report of some Tamil films that are still being screened in overseas theatres.

"Singam 2"

Suriya's "Singam 2" has earned about ₹93,000 in its fifth weekend on one screen in the UK market. The film's total collections from UK are now pegged at ₹1.79 crore (£ 1,92,128).

The action entertainer has already been declared a big hit in India as well as overseas markets. The film, as sequel to blockbuster "Singam", is about a righteous cop who is on a mission to crack down illegal drug dealers in Tamil Nadu.

Most of the star cast including Anushka Shetty, Vivek, Radharavi, Nassar and Yuvarani were retained in the second part. There were some new additions to the film - Santhanam, Hansika Motwani, Rahman, Mukesh Rishi and Hollywood actor Danny Sapani.

The success of "Singam 2" has urged director Hari to make the third part of the franchise. One has to wait to and watch if Hari comes up with another cop story for the popular franchise.


Dhanush's "Mariyaan", which has won appreciation from film critics, has raked in ₹26.03 lakh at the end of the third weekend in the UK market.

In its third weekend, the film minted around ₹64,000 (£ 684) on one screen. This was way below the collections made by "Singam 2". The Suriya starrer fetched £988 on one screen in its fifth weekend.

At domestic box office, "Mariyaan" has done good business. This is the second successful film of this year for Dhanush. His Hindi debut "Raanjhanaa", which was released in June, has grossed more than ₹100 crore at the worldwide box office.

The actor is currently busy with his next film in Tamil titled "Naiyaandi".The film is expected to get released this year.

"Pattathu Yaanai"

Vishal's "Pattathu Yaanai" has failed to impress critics as well as audience. However, the film managed to perform better than the other new release "Sonna Puriyathu", starring Shiva.

"Pattathu Yaanai" is being showed on two screens in the UK. The film has garnered ₹25.10 lakh (£ 26,869) at the end of the second weekend.


With the Eid weekend nearing, everybody is waiting for one of the biggest Tamil releases of this year. Vijay's "Thalaivaa" is all set to rock the theatres from 9 August. The film is expected to have a fantastic opening at the box office.
