The verdict is out: Omkara has not fully lived up to the mammoth expectations in U.K. and Australia. However, the U.S. figures have yet to be confirmed. Ideally, with a cast like the one in Omkara and the tremendous hype surrounding the film, the film should've fetched £ 150,000 + in its opening weekend in U.K. and Aus. $ 60,000 + in its opening weekend in Australia.

Weekend: July 28 - 30, 2006.
