The early estimates from the trade indicate that Sarkar has grossed around Rs 38-40 crore on the second day to make it the fastest Rs 100-crore grosser.
Sarkar has got mixed reviews from all across the critics and audiences. MyNation gave 3 stars out of 5. One for Vijay, two for the punch dialogues and stunt sequences, and three for the BGM.
Sarkar is a politically-loaded film that definitely works as a political launch pad for Vijay. His impactful dialogues, the stunt sequences with apt slow motion scenes, the BGM too became the perfect cocktail for a commercial entertainer.
AR Murugadoss directed the movie, starring Vijay, Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu and Radha Ravi, and Sarkar is expected to break records at the box office.
The worldwide theatrical rights of Sarkar is estimated to have been sold for Rs 135+ crore and the movie should gross over Rs 240 crore to be declared a profitable venture.
