Sivakarthikeyan's Doctor has turned out to be a phenomenal box office success while also basking in huge critical glory. Directed by Nelson Dilipkumar of Kolamaavu Kokila fame, the black comedy released on October 9 also crossed the 100 crore mark at the box office recently, while also being telecast on Sun TV for Diwali. Jointly produced by Sivakarthikeyan Productions and Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios banners, Doctor had also premiered on Netflix and Sun NXT, with the film since being more accessible repeat viewings. In that light, Sivakarthikeyan Productions on Thursday evening dropped a surprise announcement informing fans that Doctor has now entered the Netflix Global Top 10 List. 

The good news for Doctor didn't end there as Sivakarthikeyan Productions also announced that it is now the only regional Tamil film to be featured in Netflix's global list for the past two weeks. The makers concluded their statement by revealing that Doctor is the third most-viewed film in India over the last 2 weeks, while also extending their gratitude to fans for their massive support. SK Productions tweeted, "#Doctor enters the  @netflix Global Top 10 List. The only regional-Tamil film in the global list for the past 2 weeks. Also, it is the third most viewed film in India over the last 2 weeks. Thanks to all for this tremendous response & love 😇♥️🙏🏻 #DOCTORinNetflixGlobalTOP10". Below is the tweet: 

Doctor emerging as such a big triumph is no doubt a tremendous feat considering the film had to undergo a few release delays, with many reports at the time also stating it could end up coming out directly on an OTT platform. However, the team had stuck to their stance and released the film in theatres, and the response for the family entertainer has proven to be the biggest testimony of its victory.
