Generally, the 1st-day collection of any movie plays a major role in the movie’s success. But this is not a hardcore rule. If a movie has very high 1st day collections, then that does not mean that it will be a super hit movie. In fact, if you look at history, most of the movies that receive high first-day collection, do not generally make it big at the box office in the longer run. There are 2 extreme scenarios that can take place for a Tamil movie.
Highest First Day Collection, BUT Flop
Sometimes movie receives great openings. But then, it fails badly. Why? This is because sometimes, Word of mouth also plays an important part. The movie’s openings may be due to its huge promotions. But then, the later drop can be due to the bad word of mouth. Even though large openings guarantee recovery of the budget, the overall earnings, and fate drop badly.
Low First Day Collection, BUT Hit
Movies with low openings rise in the following days, thanks to the Positive Word of Mouth. Maybe the budget is not sufficient to do promotions enough that the 1st-day collection of these Tamil movies are less. But when people start liking the film, word of mouth spreads and the movie becomes a super hit.
But these trends are not always followed. Movies like Kabali went on to become the biggest earning movies of all time. This movie also had a superb opening day. So, sometimes, filmmakers get lucky enough that their promotions pay off, and they get a good Word of Mouth as well.
