Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala was released yesterday in around 2000 screens worldwide. The film opened to positive reports allover and is also being appreciated by the critics. Despite the decent response from cinegoers, the action drama has registered low figures on its opening day compared to the superstar’s earlier films.
Kaala has collected a worlwide gross of Rs 50 crores (approximate figures) on day 1 (including all versions) which is quite lesser than Kabali’s first day collections. Kabali bagged a whopping gross of Rs 85 crores on its opening day showcasing Rajini’s stardom across the globe. Trade analysts say that it is the audiences who had low expectations on Pa Ranjith-Rajini duo as they failed to deliver the right movie.
Nevertheless, Kaala is being well received in Tamilnadu and in both the Telugu states as well. But one would doubt if it would at least bring the break even figures in full run. Kaala had a pre-release business of Rs 230 crores. Let’s see where it would finally reach by the end.
