Though these are decent numbers, one has bigger expectations from Beast. The movie has received negative reviews and mixed word of mouth. As a result, it faced a downtrend in evening and night shows, resulting in numbers lower than expectations.
With the first day gross collection of Rs 26.4 Crore, Beast is the second-highest opening for Vijay behind Sarkar (Rs 32 Crore). It is the fifth-highest opening in Tamil Nadu behind Valimai (Rs 36.17 Crore), Annaatthe (Rs 34.92 Crore), 2.0 (Rs 33.58 Crore), and Vijay’s Sarkar (Rs 32 Crore).

The Telugu version of Beast collected around Rs 6 Crore (Gross) on its first day. In the Hindi market, Beast is off to a poor start. It collected around Rs 2 Crore on its opening day.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted that Beast has collected approximately Rs 4 crore from the premiere shows in the US. His tweet read, “#Beast Premieres gross $653,171 from 308 locs at the USA Box Office. 2nd Best Premiere for a Tamil movie after #Kabali (sic).”

The worldwide opening day collection of Beast would be around Rs 65 to 70 Crore (Gross). Here’s a breakdown:
- Tamil Nadu: Rs 26.4 Crore
- Andhra/Telangana: Rs 6 Crore
- Karnataka: Rs 5.5 Crore
- Kerala: Rs 3.5 Crore
- Rest Of India (Hindi): Rs 3 Crore
- All India Day 1 Gross: Rs 52 to 55 Crore
- Overseas Day Gross: Rs 10-15 Crore
- Beast Day 1 worldwide collection (Gross): Rs 70 Crore (approx.)
With the release of Yash’s KGF 2, Beast will see a big drop in numbers from today especially outside Tamil Nadu. One of the prime reasons, the movie will fail to sustain is the negative word of mouth.
