South Cinema’s movie Ponniyin Selvan 1, that is, PS-1, is earning a lot at the box office. At the same time, the film starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan ‘Vikram Vedha’ released with this ran out of breath in a week. By the way, the PS-1 movie craze directed by Mani Ratnam is speaking loudly not only in India but also abroad. And, the box office figures of the movie ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ are enough to prove it. PS-1 has crossed the worldwide profit of Rs 318 crore within seven days of its release. At the same time, the film starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Brahmastra, reached Rs 425 crore after 25 days of release. In short, a week after the release of PS-1, I understood how much better than Brahmastra.
PS-1 has also raised flags by winning big in foreign countries.
The content is the most important thing, not the star cast or the visual effects.
Shah Rukh Khan also had a cameo in the movie Brahmastra along with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia. Not only this, South Cinema star Nagarjuna also had a major role in the making of the movie Brahmastra pan India. At the same time, there was a lot of fuss about the use of VFX in the Brahmastra movie. Regarding his VFX, it was said that this level of VFX has not been used in any Indian film before today. Despite all these features, Brahmastra failed to show any wonders at the box office. Because the Brahmastra movie story was weak. After 25 days of the premiere of this film, only the cost has been recovered.
At the same time, speaking of PS-1, in this movie, most of the movie stars like Vikram, Jairam Ravi and Karti are from South India. Apart from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the film has no Hindi heart stars. But, despite this, PS-1 has so far earned Rs 202.3 crore at the Indian box office. By the way, visual effects have been used a lot in the movie Ponniyin Selvan 1. This is the reason why the budget of the movie has reached 500 million rupees. Which is more than Brahmastra. By the way, the story of the film is based on the great glorious history of the Chola Empire. So the content is completely new. Suffice to say, nothing is wrong with the film’s all-star cast. Rather, the story needs to be strong.
Left behind Brahmastra earnings abroad
In Hindi speaking states, the Ponniyin Selvan 1 movie is gaining a bit weak. Because it didn’t get much screen space. Along with PS-1, Vikram Vedha and Avatar, Hollywood’s highest-grossing movie of all time, were also re-released on it. Despite this, PS-1 is making decent money in the Hindi heartland through word of mouth. At the same time, this film has left behind Prabhas’ film Bahubali in terms of earnings at the Tamil box office. PS-1 has become the shortest film to enter the 100 crore club. By the way, PS-1’s earnings in seven days abroad are more than the foreign earnings of the movie Brahmastra in 25 days. Brahmastra has earned 112 million rupees so far abroad. So, PS-1 has earned Rs 116.2 crore. which is still ongoing.
