'Kaala' sets momentum for a good run in Chennai Box Office!

Rajinikanth Starrer Kaala RULES The Australian Box Office

Here's how much the film fared last weekend in the Chennai box office. In addition, the film is going strong in the U.S. and Australia as well.

Trade pundits expected Kaala to collect more than 3 million in the United States of America but now, the film might end up collecting just above 2 million $ in the country.

Film trade analyst Ramesh Bala had tweeted that the film has made a Rs 100-crore gross collection at the worldwide box office. "This should be the first and last week for the Hindi version of the film in theatres".

Kaala released in over 35 countries and, apart from the USA and Australia, it has managed to do notable business in Malaysia, Middle East and in France. Reports on Box Office India said Kaala has performed below expectations in territories like the USA and the Far East where Rajinikanth commands a huge following.

However, the film could not show the same magic in India.

While expectations from the Hindi version were not too high, things were tough down south too which is the prominent market for Rajinikanth films. The movie is estimated to have earned Rs 8 crore for the distributors in these regions in three days. Its total collections stand at Rs 4.9 Crore.

Even before the film's release, Kaala has already done great business by raking in Rs 230 crore with satellite and music rights.

Despite releasing on Thursday and in the process gaining an additional day for the weekend, Rajinikanth starrer Kaala [Hindi] has turned out to be a no-show at the box office. That hurt Tamil sentiments, trade experts had pointed out before release, affecting the film's prospects not just domestically but even in overseas territories where there is a significant Tamil population.
