Questioning if the filmmakers could have come up with such a film when Jayalalithaa was alive, he said, "Why unnecessarily make such references". Unconfirmed reports hint that the film has collected above 6 Crores on day 1 at the Kerala box office.

Following its release, AIADMK's Raju has accused the film of taking digs at the ruling party and according to an India Today TV report, the minister has referred to Vijay as an "extremist" who was 'acting with vested interest'. The most remarkable one is that it has broken the record of Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju that had the highest opening day collection of 2018 so far.

AIADMK leaders and supporters are angry over Vijay's film "Sarkar". The film released in 800 theatres in the state and close to 3000 worldwide. "The filmed opened in 69 theatres in Chennai and both Day 1 and Day 2 are running to packed houses", he said. Ticket New tweeted that Sarkar is the first movie to simultaneously release in 5 continents, 80 countries and more than 1200 global screens across the globe. The film also stars Keerthy Suresh, Radha Ravi, Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar and Yogi Babu.

Vijay's Sarkar movie that got released 2 days back received poor reviews from critics in Telugu as well as in Tamil. In Kerala, it grossed over Rs. 6 crores on release day, registering a new all-time opening day record. While Sanju minted Rs 34.75 crore on Day 1, Sarkar has surpassed it in the South circuits itself.

Sarkar has had its fair share of controversy both before and after its release.

Sarkar had previously run into trouble with writer Varun Rajendran who alleged that the story of the film was copied from his work Sengol.

The Tamil Nadu health department has already sent a legal notice to AR Murugadoss, the producer of the film and Vijay for promoting smoking in the film.

Yesterday, another state minister, Kadambur C Raju also threatened action if the objectionable scenes were not removed.
