The film has opened with positive reviews, while Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi rule with their respective roles. According to the Box Office India report, Vijay’s ‘Master‘ has collected more than Rs 20 crore (Nett) at the Tamil Nadu box office on day 1 to become the second-best in the state. Vijay’s ‘Sarkar’ tops at the day one collections, and the actor rules with four films in the top five. The action drama has reportedly collected almost Rs 35 crore (Nett) at the overall India box office.
