`Kaala` takes a big opening in Chennai city alone!

Day 3 Collections

Having opened to an average response, Kaala collected Rs 5.20 crore gross at the AP/T box office on the first day.

Superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala has taken a enormous opening in Chennai city which is the best performing territory for the film.

While the industry is contemplating over why Kaala could not stand strong at the Indian box office, whether it was the timing of the release or Rajinikanth's politics that has put off some of the actor's fans, the audience overseas is giving a big thumbs up to the South superstar. But two of these markets need a special mention - U.S. and Australia. That is far lower than Rajinikanth's last release, Kabali, also directed by Ranjith, that had earned Rs109 crore over its opening weekend. "And that has happened even though the content is not all that bad". Released on Thursday, Kaala has made about Rs6.64 crore in Chennai city.

Even though the hype around this Rajini movie seemed to be creating lesser buzz than its earlier "Kabali", lets admit that "Kaala" has steadied itself into pace for a good box office run. The film was expected to start with a bang and shatter the records of Rajinikanth's previous releases in the Telugu states.

The much delayed film also had to combat the tiresome Ramzan period in north India when most exhibitors are waiting to showcase Salman Khan's Eid offering Race 3. Tickets for the first weekend hadn't sold out in Tamil Nadu even two days before the film's release, which has not been the case for past releases of the actor.

According to the latest reports, Kaala collected close to Rs 1.7 Crore on day 3 and remained the top pick of the movie buffs. The collections are no match to the star power of Rajinikanth. "There was no word-of-mouth for it to grow and for people to like it or not".
