Jilla is a better movie, compared to veeram because there were more people and everyone who watched both said jilla is better, and I am pretty sure it said 10-12 cores so that means it's somewhere around there.

I Disagree. Im a neutral fan, veeram was better than jilla cuz three hours is too lengthy. Veeram 7.5/10 Jilla 6.5/10

I watched veeram and there are lot of family audiences...when I came out there are only few audiences waiting for the show...For pongal time every one will watch the movie both Jilla and veeram....After a few days you can see that veeram will rule the box office...if jilla is good why the movie has been reduced ten minutes

Because of Mohanlal and R.B Chaudry Jilla gets more theatres. R.B Chaudry always used the word like myself and Vijay combination never failed, we are lucky combination etc etc. So many theatre owners accepted to release more theatres

Mohan Kindly do the Calculation if 790 Screens got 9.3 and 1150 got 12 Cr ..... 117721 Average Per Screen for Veeram and 105000 Average Per screen for Jilla .... So not much difference ...

"Thala" is the mass, class, everything - 340 theatre less to Jilla but yet 9.3 crores .. Thala meant to rule box office.. good that he is back to full time acting .. lot to expect in the future! The only actor who has similar screen presence to the Super Star is Thala. hands down.

In Tamil industry, one comedy piecuuuuu actor has grown 1.) During 1995, he used vijaykanth name, he used call vijaykanth as Thalaivar. 2.) From 1996 to 2003, he used Rajinikath name, he called as Thalaivar. 3.) Then he started using DMK, SUN TV and Dyanidhi maran influence. 4.) From 2010 to 2012, he started using ADMK influence What next?

Yes 350 screens higher than veeram we accept but by only one reason. Mr. MohanLal doesn't got salaries for jilla for he got release rights for Kerala. He released nearly 310 theaters in Kerala. No other special reason. So don't say that Vijay is always great.

Hi Dear, Nothing going to happen, when U scolding each other. We R just fans that's all. If we have financial problem or other than any problems, No one come to us. If U planning anything with intentional, 100% that will not work. Be Cool brother. Thala and Thalapatty are Always Mass heroes in Tamil Industries. Have a Good Day or Make a Good Day. Thank you.

I haven't watched Veeram yet but from watching Jilla from the cinema yesterday I don't want to watch Veeram. Both actors are amazing but Jilla is just a great flim. I love you as a great actor Vijay!!! Take care!:)

Absolute Mass movie. Thala Ajith is clearly the next superstar. Look at the box office collections without any additions of a Mass hero Like Mohanlal. Veeram Ponggal!
