Kamal Hassan's much-hyped Hindi movie Vishwaroop has concluded the first week with a brilliant collection, while another new release David starring Vikram and Neil Nitin Mukesh in leads, has proved to be a disaster at the Indian Box Office. But both have landed in the second and third positions, respectively, with old release Race 2 topping the business chart in the country.
