Who leads Diwali 2011 race 7aam Arivu or Velayudham

Diwali 2011 was a definitive treat for Kolly people, with Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Velayutham and Suriya’s 7aam Arivu vying for the top spot. But folks the wait is over and we are glad to declare the first week results.Suriya’s 7aam Arivu released on 25th October while Vijay starrer Velayudham released on Diwali day October 26th setting alight the Diwali celebrations. This is what the Chennai Box-Office reports look like:

1st place for 7am Arivu with a staggering 40.25 Crores

2nd place goes to Velayudham trying to catch up at 40 Crores(released in less number of theatres comparatively with 7aam Arivu)

3rd place was safely secured by Ra One.

The box office collections do reflect the fact that a good amount of Kolly fans’ do prefer cinema with a difference, which surely has been Suriya’s forte. Nevertheless Vijay too has been able to draw in the family audiences to the theaters, a thing our Ilayathalapathy has always been known to do with much ease. Appreciation has been flowing in from all corners for both the stars. Suriya even received appreciation from Thalaivar Rajinikanth for trying something new and another classic delivery from director A.R. Murugadoss.

So Suriya and Vijay fans, we just wanted you to scroll down and drop in your thoughts on this one. The comments section is right below, just in case you couldn’t find it!

  1. first up. the movie 7aam arivu was crap. when i say it I mean the “research” that muragadoss was claiming to have done so strenously was simply bullshit. The more we try to look like hollywood the more we are into being pathetic and “bollywoody”. If we cant replicate/mirror hollywoods style then why try it?? We can still stick to emotional melodrama that have been our forte for so long.

    Velayudham is a typical vijay movie -nothing more nothing less.

    Vijay fans will go ballistic over it while others who prefer sensible and realistic cinema will weep over their misfortune of watching it. Period.

  2. 7aum arivu, other than historical background, nothing special to say. Its purely the fletcher role in dasavathaaram movie. Disappointed watching this movie
    Velayutham, though the same story but was interesting and fun to watch. Worth spending money on this movie.

  3. atleast you were truthful when you menationed Velayudham was released in les number of screens – that made a significant difference. Every other media projects velayudham as a winner based on ‘potential’ / ‘staying power’ – I think the real leader will emerge ina  afew weeks time when overall box office results pour in . My vote is for Velayudham .

    7aam Arivu is a must watch purely because it portrays the richness of Tamil culture and the irony is the same Buddhism that was propounded by Bodhidharma is being used against us in Srilanka..

  4. I havent heard any moaning from people who watched velayudham – everyone enjoyed it for its entertainment quiotent. You seem to think you are a genuis and a class apart from Vijay fans – be rest assured you are not . Vijay fans are not some wierdos who’ll swallow anything that’s thrown at them – they have the power to change the ruling parties and also for the better part influence the type of movies  & directors that Vijay chooses .
      We love Vijay for who he is and what he’s capapble of – he’s definately the next super star . Also i’m not putting down Surya – he’s a good actor but 7aam Arivu didnt click -period !

  5. soola karuppa, dont be sad. its a fake news from fake domma website.in diwali race velayutham is clear winner. i say two simple example….. 65 % of 7am arivu movie clipings was telecasted from 2nd day of its release in kalaingar & suntv. if it is a big hit then why they ………………2nd example is why they are reducing some shows in chennai.see the box office collection 7am arivu 40.25 crores & velayutham 40 crores. here only something is wrong. so they want to under estimate our thalaivar movie. they propagating like that. dont believe that BO collection. truely i am saying that velayutham will be a blockbuster. after enthiran,shivaji next our velayutham only…..

  6. inspite of the fact that i am crazy abt surya, both the movies were good, i felt that 7am arivu shud hav had a lil more story ine to it, ,.. it did on and off sound like a documentary.. but the effort is very appreciative, velayutham had a smooth good storyline which ios its strength, they both had values to convey, on the whole good jod by both the teams.

  7. 7aam arivu was a far better movie…even though I dint see Velayutham…there wasnt anything knew apart from the hero saying this wud be sumthn difrnt…CRAP

  8. dei sombu ..u r not fit to review the movies unless u have seen it. its like a teacher giving ranks without even looking at the answer sheet ..this itself tells how much of a genius u r 😀

  9. 7aam arivu movie s worth to watch…. create  eagerness  to know abt Bodhidharma(Damo)… great effort by d team… Velayutham s asusual masal mix nothing spl.

  10. dai soola karuppan.. inum irukiya nee? poi thooku pottuko! ilatti watch velayudham once again! both will yeild same results!

  11. @jim no need to coz i’m sure velayutham is going to be a hit n 7am arivu may be above average . after next week result maybe u should eat gelucil 🙂

  12. velayudam padam pakrathuku———————better to hang urself

    velayudam——————————-uthikuchuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :'(

  13. velayudam————————-the worst——————— :'(

    7am arrivu————————–ok—————————- 😎

  14. VELAYUTHAM SUPER MACHIS I LOVE VIJAY AND VIJAY FANS AND ALL THE SONGS OF VIJAY ANTONY IS GODD. JAYM RAJAS HARD WORK I LIKE MACHIES

  15. VELAAAAAAAAAAYYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTHAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMM


    ssssuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR 

  16. i like suriya and vijay but you have to note that ther wasn’t any major difference between the box office collections with 0,25 crores between  7am arivu and velayutham also suriya’s films were released in all the major cinemas where as vijay’s was relseased in not as much 

  17. all theratre people know that velayudham is flop….
    even vijay knows it ..just trying to fool all his fans 

  18. Velayudham is an ultimate crap! disgrace to superheroes! same old crap! forget the money.. its an waste of time even if u watch it in..

  19. can see a lot of oppari(death song) by Vijay fans here! dont worry guys, try to beat dhanush atleast with nanban!

  20. Everyone knows that a superstar after me will be Vijay!!! am so pround for the acting of vijay in velayutham!! surya is developing is acting skills so i had to appreciat him!!!

  21. Velayutham & 7am arrivu sssssssssss same susscess ….. both movie are superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    hand up to Vijay Anna & surya 🙂

  45. oh is that you superstar? how nice to see you comment here even when ur not well! 

    get an life you dumb Vijay fan!

  46. 7 am arivu,story is good but screenplay is mokka. murugadass is didn’t explained this concept.hats off to both  surya and murugadass for 1st 20 min movie.rest of the movie is utter waste.

  47. da vinci code la sophi character jesus varisunu solrathu nambalam pola irukum but in this film screen play is not upto the mark to believe.

  48. almost 30 thalaimuraiku appuram oruthavanoda DNA la irukaruthu endru solli tha traininge illama adutha frame laye master (arts) kamikkarathu kaathula poo suthurathu.

    nokku varmam etho (pencil,scale vachu ellarum sonna vudanaye koda podara mathiri) training illamaye antha fieldla oru mastera irukuravan kooda sanda podarathu best comedy of the year..

  49. 7aam arivu movie is worst only 15mins is good to watch…. (know abt Bodhidharma(Damo)). after that same masala. (worst masala) nothing great than 15mins. and (bodhidharma done nothing to india).  

    Box office collection is not upto the mark compare to vijay velayudham. since vijay films release in less theatres but collection is good.

    great illai thalapathi…………………. 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎

    surya ——————- 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛

  50. I will never accept this verdict!! :'(

    OMG!! I dont beliv this.. Velayudham 2nd and Ra One third?? Ra One is way better than Velayudham! Ra One should be second and cancel the third position!!

  51. > krishna > 7 am arivu,story is good but screenplay is mokka. murugadass is didn’t explained this concept.hats off to both  surya and
    > murugadass for 1st 20 min movie.rest of the movie is utter waste.

    I agree with you. They started with some good stuff, but the team does not believe in Tamil audiance, bounced back to some masaala stuffs which are not necessary. Removing the songs and few unnecessary scenes would be good for the movie.

  52. this is wat i was saying since day 1, but vijay fans boasted so much.. now at least it’s proved.. accept the facts dudes!

    u think ppl are so stupid to accept a movie like velayutham when 7am arivu is still in cinemas.. next time compete with some vadivelu’s movies.. even than low chance only, but try hard.. 😛

    and no one’s gonna hear all of ur nagging on the no. of screens the movie was shown blah blah blah.. lame excuses!

  53. see extract from one of the sites:  
     
    Vijay fans, including both men and women, were seen carrying milk pots and Kavadi on their heads and headed straight to the Kamala Theatre from the temple. They performed ‘Pal Abhishekam’ on the vinyl banners which had Vijay’s photos placed at the theatres.  
       
    This event was organized by the Vijay Makkal Iyakkam’s G Bhaskar, R Raviraja, C Rajendran, AC Kumar and PRO PT Selva Kumar.  
     
    Vijay and his dad should hang themselves for behaving so cheaply.. so many babies suffereing without milk and here these idiots celebrate by wasting milk.. very disappointed with vijay.. all actors should condemn this act.. the same thing happening very often recently.. bcos of this kind of mentality only we indians are still backdated!

  54. how are they comparing the collection?

    7am Arivu started one day earlier(25th) than velayutham (26th). Obviously 7am arivu had one day extra collection. Velaytham started 1 day later and yet the difference is only 0.25cro. 

    So what does it indicate???

  55. 7am arivu is in the lead for sure!
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  56. I watched both the movies but none were great they were good and usual masala in 7 aam arivu atleast had a story but
    Velayudham was mokkai with usual and it is a super hero masala film (as is other films) with regular fighting diving flying etc., which will be liked by childrens

  57. god only knows how vijay found where the container with money was .. I don’t see any Adult saying I am Vijay Fan only kids and childrens like him moreover he himself acknowldges and often begins with yalla vitluyum irukum kutti kutti pasangalakum so what is the point in fighting with small kids guys leave the vijay fans (Kids) free as they are kids and kids do that

  58. Soola karrupan do u know the difference between moaning and mourning …….. loose thanama comment adikathenga….artham theriyama 

  59. 7aam Arivu -Screenplay lets the movie down,But a very brave attempt. Makes each n evry tamilian Proud.
    Velayudam-Very fast 1st half, Very nice comedy & songs.
    Velayudam definitely has the edge this time when it comes to entertainment.

  60. hey fool dont u have brain 2 think read d above paragraph again 7am arivu 40.25crore velaudam 40.0crore eventhough movie was less in theathres comparing 2 7am arivu if velayudam & 7am was equally shown in no of theathres means surely velayudam would be leading like anything ok??????????? shut up & get lost ………………

    velayudam rocks 😎 🙂 🙂 😎 😉   😎 vijay only superstar can beat u except him not any1 else can beat waiting for NANBAN release 

  61. hey fool dont u have brain 2 think read d above paragraph again 7am arivu 40.25crore velaudam 40.0crore eventhough movie was less in theathres comparing 2 7am arivu if velayudam & 7am was equally shown in no of theathres means surely velayudam would be leading like anything ok??????????? shut up & get lost ………………

    velayudam rocks 😎 🙂 🙂 😎 😉   😎 vijay only superstar can beat u except him not any1 else can beat waiting u for NANBAN release  . . . . . .

  62. After reading these reviews and comments,I rather not watch both the films.But if asked to pick one of the two,my choice would be 7 am arivu.Nope,I am not a surya fan.Bec 7am arivu is a new venture.Good or bad atleast it is different.What can you expect from Velayutham?Thangachi pasam(already shown in thirupachi),love(ATM),fight(all his movies).All this put together gives you Velayutham.His usual naan adicha thangamatey 4 masam thungamatey formula.Etha pakardhuku summa erukalam.Padam ketta keduku success meet,fans palkudam,kavadi,adavadi….appappa!Evanunga akkaporuku alaveyilla.Evalo periya flop analum meesaile Mann ottathey evanungaluku.

  63. As per today’s latest report…. 7am arivu is in 1st place of BOX Office movies in Malaysis. It is a great scucces as this movie even bit other English and Chinnese movies.

  64. 7am aruvu is no1 winner this diwali this film success is another magatheera(telugu film), 7am arivu = history+entertainment+sensational+ good perfomense (surya) tatally 7am arivu is a commercial film with new pattern, but illayathalapathy velayutham is not a commercial film it just a masaka film , vijay must understand the diff of comercial fims and masaka films, velayutham = thirupachi+ anniyan , 7am arivu padathai thetre poi parthal thirumpa pargath thonum , velayutham padathai thetre poi parthal 30mins ku mela seerla uttkara mudiyama toilet suvar thandiyavathu oda thonum

    • 7aam arivu is a historial film but its nt entertaining without ent. We cant watch d movie
      watch out imdb rating velayudham- 7.2
      7aam arivu- 5.5

  65. Velayudham is the best.. People go check the theatres… you can’t get Velayudham Movie Ticket… but 7aam not even house full

    I went to Ashok Pillar, there are 3 theatres Udhayam, Suriyan and sandhiran

    7aam Arivu showing in theature Udhayam and Mini Udhayarm…

    Velayudham — Suriyan and Sandhiran — .. I asked velayudham Movie Ticket and they gave 7aam Arivu movie ticket in the counter, they said Velayudham is full on both theatres… and I gave it back to him… and waited in the que for Velayudham next show.. Unfortunately next show is also already book and House full.. Finally I bought the movie 10 rs. ticket for 50 rs… in black… and watched the movie for 2nd time…

    Really to be honest it is one of the best film of Vijay.. Really superb.. and Vijay is a magician… the film doing extremely good… inside the theatre full of Fans Vissiling and Clapping for scene by scene….

    Go and Watch Velayudham, Don’t miss the theatre Experience with big crowd… and Enjoy yourself.. Entertainment Gurantee….

  66. Velyadhuam finding money container “It is better than Mankatha’s Swapping Money Container from one lorry to another… Great Joke… ” Ajith Fans are really brainless to accept it…

  67. 7aam arivu is worst…. Girls only will watch that movie to see surya’s Six pack…. Jollus…. this movie should be rated “A” bcos suriya is exposing is body instead of exposing is talent….. First worst directed by A.R. Murugadoss…

  68. Ra-One is Cartoon movie only Kids can watch it…. If you want to see real heros watch Velayudham or 7aam arivu…

  69. Dai… Why tamil natula padam odalayam sir poiyitaru malasiyavuku… because since we don’t know how what’s happening in malayasia.. enna venumlalum solladha… they would have thought the movie is Sex Movie bcos surya coming without Dress.. may be that’s why!!! LOL… Surya started doing A films…. unable to see the movie with family…. should know how to cover the body instead of showing it….

  70. Velayudham film ku bayandhittu, both dhanush and Chimbu (Sombu)… they are releasing the movie after a month… Indha latchanathula.. Nanban padathuku pottiya…. Great COmedy… “Mark my words” no film can compete with the Movie Nanban… if anyone have guts.. release the movie when nanban releasing…. Vijay rule Kollywood…. for next few hours…

  71. Podanga.. It seems you are an Ajith fan.. Enna Ajith fan’s ku ellam pogayudhu pola iruku.. Vijay padam nalla irundha…. ungalaku thookam varadhey… enna panni fake rumors kalapalam nu always thinking.. Neenga enna pesanalam… Velayudham Rocks in theatre…..

    VIJAY is the BEST, King of Kollywood…

  72. Velayudham Padam Pakka Vandhu Ticket kadaikama pona meedhi ber than vera vayi illa ‘7aam arivu pakka poranga’ then think about Velayudham Grace…

    Velayudham VIjay Rocks……

    Vijay WON the race.. and he will keep winning many more races to come…. Nanbanda.. .

  73. can u be more respectful?? there r even sum kelevi who awaits for his upcoming movies… dun talk like idiots.. if u r a surya or ajith’s fans, then juz go on.. no one ask u to stop supporting them. think before u comment anythin..

  74. suraj, you’ve proven your point about the blind love you have for your leader, vijay. i am sure that when he asked his followers to campaign for jaya in the recent assembly elections, while he was resting peacefully at home or shooting & making money in the process, you were out there under the sun obeying him. what should one call you…a fan or follower or…? hmmm!
