Bollywood movie Tezz, which got an average opening at the Box Office in India, has failed to make it big at International collection centres in the first weekend. Although the movie is a top earner among Indian flicks this weekend, its business is not up to the mark in the overseas market. Trade analysts call it a debacle.
Ajay Devgn and Anil Kapoor starrer Tezz was released on 97 screens on 27th April in America. The movie has raked in Rs 77.98 lacs ($1,48,133) at the USA Box Office in the first weekend. Its per screen average is $1,527. This is the highest collection of the film in a foreign country.
Tezz had hit 43 screens in England and Ireland together on 27th April. The film has collected Rs 50.20 lacs (£58,688) at the UK Box Office in the first weekend. Its per screen average works out to £1,365 in the country. This is the second highest collection of the film in a foreign country.
The movie was also released on 15 and 8 screens, respectively in Australia and New Zealand on 27th April. The film has collected Rs 24.12 lacs (A$43,986) at the Australian Box Office, while its collection in New Zealand reached Rs 5.44 lacs (NZ$12,613). It has done an average business in both the countries.
However, Tezz has collected a total of Rs 1.57 cr from the collection centres in the above mentioned countries in three days. The movie has earned Rs 11.25 crore at the domestic Box Office. Its total collection reaches Rs 12.82 crores nett. Trade analysts feel that it is one of the most-anticipated action movies of India in 2012 and it was expected to gross more than Rs 25 crores from the domestic Box Office and another Rs 5.10 crores from international collection centres.
