The proud director says that he expected 100 percent success but he was baffled by the 200 percent success!He also adds that it is interesting to note that Paiyaa’s collection will surpass that of Sivaji, Dasavatharam and Vettaikaran in different capacities.
According to the director, the audiences were eager to see a decent and stylish film in theatres rather than dirt and filth. This is the reason Paiyaa was made, he adds.

Reports also say ‘Paiyaa’ has breached the 20 crores mark at the box office and this feat is unchallenged. In recent memory only ‘Sivaji’ and ‘Dasavatharam’ have been able to elicit this kind of response within a few days of release.
A beaming Lingusamy dedicates the record breaking success of ‘Paiyaa’ to the quality conscious Tamil audience. In his statement Lingusamy has said “I expected 100 per cent success for the film. But I have got 200 per cent success”.
‘Paiyaa’ is running at 15 theatres in Chennai out of which 5 are in Mount Road itself. The film which hit the theatres with 500 prints is expected to generate more. Prarthana Drive In theatre in ECR has screened 45 shows and over the weekends it runs 30 shows.
Going another step forward the ‘Paiyaa’ team also challenges the detractors to check the success of ‘Paiyaa’ directly with the managers of theaters screening the film. A first of its kind time.
