Shankar - Vikram's 'I' crossed the 25 days mark yesterday. The film released on 14th Jan in Tamil and Telugu and soon had its Hindi version released as well. The worldwide screen count was massive and the film was subsequently seen by audiences once, twice and 'adhukkum mela' for Vikram's monstrous hard work and the make-up magic.
A large section of the audience felt that the film wasn't in Shankar's expected standard and that it was too gory and explicit in some of the visuals. But, the film kept pulling in audiences, and the Tamil version particularly collected very big at the box-office. Even after Yennai Arindhaal, 'I' continues to hold on to a decent chunk of shows.
Interestingly, the worldwide gross of 'I' from all its three versions is more than 200 crores, which is a whopping figure by any margin. Shankar - Rajini's Enthiran is the only other South Indian film to cross the 200 crores worldwide gross mark. Remarkable indeed ...
