Vijay starrer Master may just end up revitalising the Indian box office. Apart from its impressive performance back home, it is also making waves in international markets as per Deadline. And to confirm the news, Master’s production house XB Film Creators tweeted on Monday night, “#MasterRaids the world! We are officially the highest grossing movie on the opening weekend, globally!”

Its debut in countries like UAE, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand, and the US gave the film 3 million dollars according to the trade publication.

Master is the first major film release for India since the lockdown induced by the coronavirus pandemic was imposed in March last year.

Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj. Master is Vijay’s first film since 2019’s Bigil.’s Manoj Kumar R wrote in his review of the film, “Master is neither completely a Vijay film nor entirely a Lokesh Kanagaraj film. Lokesh’s self-imposed limitations and obligation to be in fan-service undermine the film’s impact. He has used so many good talents as just fillers and wasted resources on ideas that don’t take the story forward. And, those are not the qualities of Lokesh who made Maanagaram and Kaithi.”
