Suriya and team celebrate as Kaappaan enters Rs 100-crore club
Kaappaan, the third collaboration of Suriya and KV Anand, has turned out to be a huge hit. According to the production house, the box office collection of the film has crossed Rs 100 crore-mark.
After the underwhelming Maattrraan, KV Anand and Suriya joined hands for the commercial entertainer Kaappaan, which also had Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. The film released on 20 September and received negative reviews from critics. However, the fans seem to have given a thumbs up to the film.
Lyca Productions took to Twitter to share a picture of Suriya and the team celebrating the box office success of the film. According to the tweet, Kaappaan has raked in Rs 100 crore from across the world.
Here’s the tweet:
#KAAPPAAN Success meet Today..

Other than Suriya and Mohanlal, the thriller also had Sayyeshaa, Arya, and Samuthirakani in important roles. Kaappaan is about a farmer/Special Protection Group officer trying to guard the Prime Minister of India and save the nation from a terrorist group.
Sudhir Sreenivasan of Cinema Express rated the film with 1.5 stars, and wrote, “The film feels cold, like a synthetic, lifeless product manipulatively designed to subscribe to a formula.”
