Beast is a future Indian action comedy film written and directed by Nelson and produced by Sun Pictures in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. In Kashmir, Veera Raghavan, an Indian RAW operative, is tasked with apprehending terrorist Umar Farooq.
While he succeeds in doing so, a missile he fires to stop Farooq from escaping kills a youngster he knows intimately. Veera is traumatized by the incident and leaves RAW. Veera is still dealing with the impact of the child’s death 11 months later and is suffering from PTSD.
At a wedding, he meets Preethi, who persuades him to join her security firm, Domnic & Soldiers, led by Dominic Irudhayaraj. In the meantime, the Tamil Nadu government learns of a big terrorist strike planned in Chennai.
Veera, along with Preethi and Irudhayaraj, visits the East Coast mall, their agency’s last customer, where he notices suspicious activity and concludes that someone else has taken over the mall. The mall is taken over by militants posing as Santa Claus.
Box Office Collection of Vijay Beast Films
South Indian film fans have traditionally been among the most committed of any film industry’s fan base; they visit film festivals to see their favorite stars’ films, which is why First Day collections are the most talked about in town.
The film Beast, starring Vijay and Pooja Hegde, debuted in theatres today, and here are the first-day box office statistics. On its first day, Beast grossed 26.40 crores in Tamil Nadu, 7.83 crores in Hyderabad and Telangana, 7.15 crore in Karnataka, and 6.28 crore in Kerala, 1.32 crore in North India, and 23.69 crores ($3.1 million) outside India, bringing its worldwide total to 72.67 crores.
According to sources, the film made between 38 crores and 40 crores on its first day of release in Tamil Nadu; however, Box Office India indicated in their second-day report that such figures were greatly overstated.
The film grossed 127 crores in three days.

The Times of India stated that the film has made 195 crores in its first five days of release.
Review of the Beast
‘Beast,’ starring Thalapathy Vijay and Pooja Hegde, is without a doubt one of the most eagerly awaited films of the year. It was released today on large screens, and despite being a Tamil film, it was dubbed and distributed in various other languages, including Hindi and Telugu.
Many netizens and Vijay fans have seen the film and are passionately sharing their opinions on social media. There are few positive reviews, and the majority of fans are unhappy with Nelson Dilipkumar’s narration.
Anirudh tries to give the moments some punch with the soundtrack, but by the time we get to the end, with writing that is just leaner and never meaner or stronger, even that isn’t enough. The director has placed his complete trust in Vijay to carry the film, but with no story to work with, Vijay can only do so much with his star power.
Budget for Vijay Beast
If rumors are to be believed, the Beast movie has a budget of 150 crores at stake. In terms of the Tamil film industry, it is one of the higher-budget films. Furthermore, Thalapathy Vijay’s salary for the film accounts for around 66 percent of the overall budget.
Master, Thalapathy Vijay, his most recent flick, reinforced his star power. The film was a big financial success even though it was released in 2021, shortly after the first wave of Covid killed hundreds of people.
Everyone is now anticipating his upcoming album, dubbed “Beast.” Pooja Hegde was the female protagonist in Vijay’s Beast, which was directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and originally released in March of 2021.
It will be released in theatres on April 13, 2022, and is characterized as an action-thriller. After the film’s critical and popular success, fans have been eagerly anticipating Vijay’s upcoming magnum opus.
