Hyderabad: Telugu movie Uu Kodathara Ulikki Padathara (UKUP) has opened to a very good response at the USA Box Office in the first weekend. The Balakrishna and Manchu Manoj starrer film has beaten Rajendra Prasad starrer Onamalu at the collection centres in America, but it has failed to slow down the pace of previous release Eega.
Uu Kodathara Ulikki Padathara, which was released on July 27 in the USA, was screened in limited number of cinema halls in the country. But the Telugu film has done a wonderful business when compared to its volume of its release in the country. The movie has collected Rs 38.09 lakhs ($ 68,722) at the USA Box Office in opening weekend.
Whereas another new Telugu release Onamalu, which was also released on limited number of screens in America, has received average response at the USA Box Office. Despite getting good reviews from film critics, the movie has failed to make it big at the collection centres in the country. It has grossed Rs 1.80 lakhs ($ 3,243) in the first weekend.
However, the collection of SS Rajamouli's Eega remained unaffected by the release of Uu Kodathara Ulikki Padathara in the country. The graphical wonder, which continued to rock the audience, has added more than Rs 15 lakhs to its 25-day total Rs 5.87 crores nett. With this, it has become the highest grosser Telugu movie at the USA Box Office.
