Ajith's top 5 movies box office collection:

First place is none other than the Industry hit Viswasam. Released for 2019 Pongal along with super star's Petta, the movie is the #1 profitable movie ever in Kollywood (in the recent decade)
The second place is bagged by Vedalam. Directed by Siruthai Siva and released in 2015, this movie had TN rights collection of 36 crore, box office collection of 71 crore and share collection of 47 crore.
Third place by Aarambam, released in 2013 and directed by Vishnuvardhan. The TN rights collection is 35 crore, box office collection is 51.5 crore and share collection is 32.8 crore.

Veeram, directed by Siruthai Siva and released in 2014, occupies the fourth spot. The TN rights collection is 31 crore, box office collection is 51 crore and share collection is 30.25 crore.
Another 2019 release Nerkonda Paarvai stands in the fifth place. This is a remake of Hindi movie Pink. Its a low cost quick remake movie where Ajith spent around 25-30 days for the whole movie. Nerkonda Paarvai did average business and in some areas it was a flop. It garnered good reviews.
Vivegam was a flop and is not in top 5 list of Ajith movies

Final Word : Viswasam and Vedalam gave bumper profits to distributors and remaining ones are all clear profit ventures except Nerkonda parvai which was average business overall.

Viswasam is the industry hit still unbeaten

Vijay's top 5 movies box office collection:

2021 Master is a superhit from Vijay but due to covid release issues, the movie release got pushed around an year and screened with 50% occupancy so the numbers don't match up with all other movies so Master is excluded from the list due to the box office issues. Critic wise Master received highly positive reviews.

2019 latest release Bigil is the highest grossing movie for Vijay world wide, the movie has grossed well over 250 crores world wide... Overall world wide success for the movie, still the movie did not beat Viswasam's records in TN, because Bigil was sold at a very high price and not a hit in the box office.

2018 release Sarkar stands #2 for Vijay in terms of box office collection. The movie gathered mixed reviews and average in the box office too due to the high budget of the film. Vijay is doing Beast movie with Sun pictures again.

2017 release Mersal is the best collected Vijay movie in terms of box office and gross revenues.The movie went past all controversies and emerged as a money spinner. It grossed around 200 crores world wide in all countries including Telugu dubbed version. In TN it broke the years long record set by Enthiran.

Fourth place goes to 2016 release Theri, directed by Atlee again stands in the second place and the TN rights collection is 44.5 crore, box office collection is 75.75 crore and share collection is 50 crore.

The fifth place is bagged by Thuppaki, directed by A.R. Murugadoss and released in 2012. TN rights collection is 38 crore, box office collection is 71.5 crore and share collection is 46.8 crore. Kaththi movie numbers are slightly lesser than that of Thuppaki so it is not in top 5 list.

On the whole, Thuppaki is the only clean profit ventures for ALL parties involved from theater owners, distributors to producers. Sarkar was above average, hence the combo (Vijay and Sun pictures) is uniting in Beast movie again. Theri was an average outing. The distributor gross profit margins are as follows: Thuppaki - 18.80% , Kaththi - 12.5%, Theri - 10.55%, only these three movies out of the five are winners. Mersal and Bigil are flops. TSL studios (Mersal) and AGS entertainments (Bigil) are trying to come back with a blockbuster with Vijay
