Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala has released today across the globe. The movie has a poor buzz right from the Word Go and the poor Promotional Material also did not help the cause. The movie has collected around $512K from its Premieres in the United States. Incidentally, Rajinikanth’s Previous film, Kabali has raked in 1.95 Million Dollars from its premieres. The talk and the reviews are not up to the mark especially for the Telugu version, it has to be seen how it performs at the box office in the long run.
On the other side, the Openings in both the Telugu States are very ordinary. This is mainly due to lack of publicity and the effect of Kabali failure in the audience here. 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.
