Notably, Kantara another dubbed Kannada movie also grossed an unexpected amount at the Tamil Nadu box-office. Silambarasan TR starrer Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu (VTK), directed by Gautham Menon did decent business as well.
On the other hand, unexpected box-office disappointment came in the form of Cobra, whose star Vikram gave the blockbuster PS-I this year.
