Lakshmi Manchu's latest production Gundello Godari has received very poor opening at the USA Box Office. Whereas the business of last week's release Mr Pellikoduku has completely gone down in the second weekend and it is worse than the old releases like Mirchi, Naayak, Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC) Vishwaroopam (Telugu), which have been still doing good collection even after five weeks after their release in the country.
Gundello Godari is one of the most-hyped Telugu movies of 2013 and it was expected to get an earth-shattering response. But the movie began with a dull note and it did not show a big jump on the following days. The film has collected Rs 6.01 lakhs ($ 11,048) from 16 screens at the USA Box Office in its first weekend.
Mr Pellikoduku, which had collected Rs 6.95 lakhs from 50 screens in its opening weekend, has been withdrawn from most of the theatres in America. In its second weekend, the film had just 3 screens and it has collected $ 266 at the USA Box Office, taking its 11-day total to Rs 7.72 lakhs ($ 14,206).
Four weeks' old release Mirchi is still doing very good business in the country. The film has collected $ 3,121 from 3 screens at the USA Box Office in its fifth weekend and its total collection has reached Rs 3.46 crores ($ 6,36,125).
Naayak has collected $ 485 from 2 screens at the USA Box Office in its ninth weekend, taking its total to Rs 2.69 crores ($ 4,94,815).
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu has collected $ 401 from 2 screens at the USA Box Office in its ninth weekend and its total collection has reached Rs 8.91 crores ($ 16,38,126). This has become the all-time highest grosser Telugu movie in the country.
Whereas the Telugu version of Vishwaroopam is also doing well in the country. The movie has collected $ 226 from 1 screen at the USA Box Office in its seventh weekend, taking its total Rs 1.09 crores ($ 2,00,293).
