Viswasam No Match For Sarkar
Sarkar had collected nearly Rs 30 Crore at the Tamil Nadu box office on Day 1 and made full use of the Diwali holiday.

As such, there is no question of it being able to beat Sarkar.
Viswasam To Beat Petta?
Viswasam is likely to collect around Rs 17 Crores at the Tamil Nadu box office on Day 1. While this barely more than half of what Sarkar had grossed, it is an impressive figure nonetheless. Moreover, Viswasam should have the upper hand over Petta.

100 Crore Club Calling?
