Check out the slides below to know how the movie has fared so far in Telugu(dubbed version) and in other parts of the world:
Joins The $500K Mark
According to the latest report, the film has already crossed the coveted half a million mark in the USA joining other biggies like I, Yennai Arindhaal and OK Kanmani. The total collections there now stands at $508,137.
While the Tamil version of the movie has been trimmed by 12 minutes in some states, the Telugu version has been trimmed by 21 minutes, indicating Uttama Villain's poor run at Telangana and Andhra Pradesh areas.
Facing Heavy Losses?
It is said that Ganga(Kanchana 2) is still ahead of Uttama Villain(Telugu) and that the Kamal Haasan movie is heading for a loss leaving the distributors in a spot of bother.
Same Story In The USA
When the Tamil version of the movie is doing great business in the USA, the Telugu version has tanked at the box office. It is reported that the dubbed version had only fetched $41K which amounts to 26.28 lakh rupees from its first weekend.
Kerala And Karnataka Remains A Mystery
It is still not clear how the movie has fared in Karnataka and Kerala as the trade sources from these regions have failed to divulge the box office information. However, it is said that the movie is doing 'decent' business in these two regions.
Trouble At The Top
Uttama Villain is yet to be released in many North Indian regions including Pune and Mumbai, according to a report. With the movie already facing troubles down south, its inability to reach the North Indian audience only adds to the already existing woes.
Mixed Reviews Not Helping Either
While a set of fans are claiming that Uttama Villain is Kamal's best till date, their contemporaries claim that the movie is actually boring and is difficult to understand, thanks to its complicated narration.
Will It Emerge As A Winner?
Despite the mixed reviews and financial woes, it is to be seen if Uttama Villain can emerge as a winner at the end of the day. If it does, it would definitely be a fitting tribute to the legendary Kamal Haasan and his unbelievable dedication towards Tamil cinema.
