Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu (VTK) had a tremendous collection on Saturday. The movie had a solid Thursday opening, but Friday saw a more than 50% decline in ticket sales. It recovered on Saturday, the third day after its release, earning slightly over Rs 6 crore net throughout all of India.

This gangster drama, directed by Gautham Menon, stars Siddhi Idnani and Silambarasan. On September 15, it was released in theatres to mostly favourable reviews. The opening day collection of Rs 8.35 crore was the highest in its lead actor Simbu’s career. On the second day, it managed only to raise 4 crore.

The team Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu was present at a five-star hotel in Chennai on Sunday. At the thanks-giving meet, Silambarasan said he was happy that they won. “The KDM for my movie was sent for the first time one day before its release. I had to pinch myself to be sure I was not dreaming.”

Furthermore, Silambarasan asked Gautham Menon to make the VTK sequel more commercial and fan-friendly. “Many people still don't think some of our shots were taken in just one take. We have the making videos and hope it will help them understand. In addition to going through a lot while filming VTK, I was concerned about how others would react to it.”

For his part, Gautham Menon is delighted with how VTK has been received. “The entire scenario for the Mallipoo song was created by Rahman sir. He was the one to suggest that the situation in the movie merited its own space. All credit goes to him!”

Producer Ishari Ganesh was all praise for Silambarasan and made a hint about how quickly the script work for part 2 has been moving along. “The film is doing well everywhere, including Tamil Nadu, Mumbai, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana, and has exceeded my expectations. Simbu will win the National Award for this one. Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is a smash hit, not simply a hit.”

Written by Jeyamohan, the film's supporting cast includes Radhika Sarathkumar, Siddique, Neeraj Madhav and Aangelina Abraham.

Earlier Silambarasan stated, “With Maanaadu, I took a major risk, and I was interested to see how people would react. I had the confidence to push myself to accomplish something difficult after the film became a success. VTK, a movie that is far outside of my comfort zone, was made possible because Gautham trusted me and my vision and because of our shared trust.”

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu traverses through the life of Muthu from a village in Tamil Nadu, whose life takes a turn after moving to Mumbai.
