Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala has breached the One Million Dollars Gross mark at the USA Box Office. The movie has reached there on Saturday. As per the last update we got on Saturday, the movie has collected $1,011,633. This is not something the trade is expecting when they consider the costs involved. Kabali has collected 1.3 Million Dollars Gross only from the Premieres. But then, Kaala has no such buzz and it has taken a toll on the film collections.
Even in the domestic markets, it has been a disappointing Second day at the box office. The movie has registered big drops on the Second day and the Trade is anxiously waiting for the movie performance today and tomorrow (Weekend) to see if the losses will be minimized. In Telugu, the movie has no competition whatsoever except for Mahanati which is in its fifth week.
The Talk of the Tamil version is slightly better. People say the movie is better than Kabali but that is not going to help the film much at least in Telugu. The makers have released the movie on their own after the film failed to get any buyers here. The Telugu Rights are valued at 33 Crore and it has to collect 33 Crore Share minimum to be a Hit venture which seems to be not possible with this talk and openings. That will mean PA Ranjith had squandered yet another chance given by the Superstar.
