Ajith Kumar and Nayanthara starrer Viswasam already garnered positive reviews from critics. Biggies around the Kollywood industry are also saying that the film is the best one in Thala's career. The film released simultaneously with Rajinikanth's Petta. This had an overall impact on the film's collection. But it is successful in challenging a Rajinikanth movie. Trade reports indicate that Viswasam have grossed over Rs 15 crore on the first day at the Tamil Nadu box office. Rajini's Petta also earned somewhat the same from Tamil Nadu box office. But in Chennai Rajini starrer earned 1.12 crore whereas Viswasam earned around 88 lakh on the opening day. In overseas Petta is performing much better than Viswasam. Still we have a positive feeling that in India both film will fight very closely in terms of box office collection.
Viswasam is directed by Siruthai Siva and produced by Sathya Jyothi Films. Along with Ajith Kumar and Nayanthara - Jagapati Babu, Thambi Ramaiah, Robo Shankar, Yogi Babu played important roles in the film.
