Mr Pellikoduku, which is a remake of Hindi film
Tanu Weds Manu, is one of the most-hyped movies of 2013.
Despite having released in a record number of screens, the Sunil and Isha Chawla
starrer has failed to make it big in the country. The movie has
collected Rs 6.95 lakhs ($12,666) at the USA Box Office in the
first weekend. It has become a big debacle there.
Whereas Mirchi, which was released on February 8, has
continued to do well in the country and its occupancy is much
better than the new release Mr Pellikoduku in its fourth
weekend. The Prabhas-Anushka-Richa starrer film has collected
$6,144 from 6 screens at the USA Box Office. Now, its 25-day
collection is Rs 3.47 crores ($6,31,712).
Meanwhile, Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, Naayak and Vishwaroopam (Telugu) are still running in a few screens in the country and doing fare business. In their eighth weekend, the Mahesh Babu-Venkatesh starrer has collected $720 from 2 screens, taking its total to Rs 8.99 crores ($16,37,700), while Ram Charan Teja starrer added $190 from screen to its total Rs 2.71 crores ($4,94,330). Whereas in its sixth weekend, Vishwaroopam (Telugu) has added $313 from 1 screen to its total Rs 1.10 crores ($2,00,011).
