Everyone in the Tamil cinema industry is eagerly waiting for Karthi's upcoming movie "Komban". Though the movie is caught in legal hurdles, those who are involved in the film business are taking this as a boon in disguise. They believe that the controversies around the film will help it to get a good opening in the box office.

Now, the major question is whether "Komban" will make a mark as the "movie with the biggest opening in 2015". They are also waiting to see if the flick can beat the first day box office collection of the films "Yennai Arindhaal", "Kaththi", "Anegan", and "Kakki Sattai".

With the release of its trailer and songs, "Komban" assured that it is a complete entertainer with the right blend of action and emotion-filled movie. Considering Karthi's popularity, many think the movie has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the actor's career. We have to wait and see if it will beat the record of other movies.

To know if "Komban" can make it to the top, we have to see how other movies have fared in the box office. To begin with, let's see how Ilayathalapathy Vijay starrer "Kaththi" has done on its first day. The movie had a mass opening in 2014 and had collected approximately ₹12.5 Crore on day one, whereas Vikram's "I" had minted ₹7.4 crore nett in Tamil Nadu alone on its first day.

Meanwhile, Dhanush's latest flick "Anegan" had a dream run in theatres and had reportedly collected ₹6.55 Crore on its first day in India. Ajith's "Yennai Aindhaal" also received an overwhelming response in theatres as the movie grossed ₹14.05 crore on the first day in India alone.

When it comes to "Kakki Sattai", Sivakarthikeyan had the biggest opening of his career with the movie grossing ₹ 4.62 Crore in Tamil Nadu alone on its first day.

"Komban" is directed by "Kutti Puli" fame K Muthaiyah. Karthi will be spotted in a rustic look after "Paruthiveeran". This mass entertainer is produced by Studio Green.
