It was another terrible weekend for Telugu films at the US box office. While the latest release NOTA had a miserable run, Devadas couldn’t add much moolah to its kitty in the just concluded weekend.
NOTA took a moderate start with $ 187K from its premiers. Due to the disappointing reviews and poor word of mouth, the political thriller couldn’t draw audience during the first weekend. With $ 69K and $48K from Friday and Saturday respectively, the film has disappointed trade circles bigtime. Awful numbers on Sunday ( $ 25 K approx) means that the film will end as a huge disaster in overseas.
Nagarjuna and Nani starrer Devadas, which had a decent first weekend despite low ratings, couldn’t sustain in the second week as it failed to add prominent numbers. The comedy caper collected meagre revenues in the second weekend and the total stands at $ 775K
Trade circles are now awaiting the release of upcoming biggie Aravindha Sametha which is hitting the screens on this 10th in overseas.
