Suriya's "Singam 2" is still running in some of the theatres in India as well as overseas, even after three weeks of its release.

"Singam 2", which was released on 5 July, opened to a fantastic response at the worldwide box office. In just ten days of its release, the film earned more than ₹50 crore from the Indian market.

Overseas Markets

The Suriya starrer raked in more than ₹3 crore in the first week of its release from the worlwide box office. The film's business was good in key markets including US, UK, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore.

The action entertainer, which is still being screened in the UK, has earned about ₹2 lakh (£ 2,199) on one screen during the fourth weekend. The total collections from UK are now pegged at ₹1.73 crore (£ 1,88,972).

"In its fourth weekend, the film has collected £ 2,199 on 1 screen. Total: £ 1,88,972 [Rs. 1.73 crores]," according to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

In the US, "Singam 2" has already been declared a hit. In the California Bay area, the film crossed the 25-day mark and completed its 100th show last Sunday (28 July).

The sequel also continues its dream run in some of the Southeast Asian countries. "Singam 2" has performed particularly better in Malaysia, compared to some of Suriya's past releases including "Vaaranam Aayiram", "Adhavan" and "Singam." and has even become the highest grossing Suriya film in the country.

The film has made more collections than Vijay's blockbuster film "Thuppakki" at the Malaysian box office, according to

Pattathu Yaanai

In its debut weekend, Vishal-Aishwarya Arjun starrer "Pattathu Yaanai" has earned ₹12.86 lakh on 12 screens at the UK box office.

"Pattathu Yaanai", which was released on 26 July on a large scale, has fetched mixed reviews from film critics. The lack of big releases has helped the film's business in India. The film tops the Chennai box office followed by Hollywood film "The Wolverine".

Sonna Puriyathu

Dhanush's "Mariyaan" dominates over Shiva's "Sonna Puriyathu" which has been pushed down to the fourth place at the Chennai box office.

"Sonna Puriyathu" made ₹1.58 lakh (£ 1,727) on four screens in its opening weekend at the UK box office.

There are no big releases this week, which might help these films make decent business. But it will be difficult task for these films to maintain their run in the second week of August, when big flicks including  Vijay's "Thalaivaa", Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express" and Telugu actor Pawan Kalyan's Atharintiki Daredi" are lined up for release.
