Ajith Kumar-starrer "Arrambam", which released Thursday, has registered a blockbuster opening of Rs.9.21 crore in Tamil Nadu on the first day. The festival weekend will help it mint more during the weekend, feel trade experts.

"This is the best opening for an Ajith film. The film has approximately collected Rs.9.21 crore on first day and is expected to finish the weekend on a high note. The overall buzz has been positive, and therefore, the film is expected to register a record weekend opening worldwide," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

Reportedly made on a budget of Rs.60 crore, "Arrambam" had a solo release in record number of screens worldwide Thursday.

"We are expecting the worldwide opening weekend collection to touch Rs.20 crore. Since the response to the film all over has been very good, I think that number is not impossible. Today (Saturday) and tomorrow is going to very important as two other Tamil films are releasing," he added.

Also featuring Arya, Nayanthara, Rana Daggubati and Tapsee Pannu, "Arrambam" is the story of a man on a mission to avenge the death of his best friend.

Directed by Vishnuvardhan, the film was produced by Sri Satya Sai Movies.

The Telugu dubbed version of the film titled "Aata Arrambam" is slated to release Nov 21. The dubbing rights were reportedly sold for a whopping Rs.6 crore, the highest for an Ajith film.
