Vijay Devarakonda’s latest offering Geetha Govindam has ended the flop streak at the overseas box office with its stupendous run in the first weekend. The romantic entertainer has galloped to $ 1.5 M by the end of Sunday and set sights on joining the prestigious 2 M club in the coming days.
Geetha Govindam carried good pre release reports and opened on a strong note with $ 400K from Tuesday premiers. There is no stopping for the Parasuram directional as the film surpassed the $ 1M mark with decent haul on Wednesday and Thursday followed by a strong Friday ( $ 240K ).
Due to the rave web reviews and the ultra positive word of mouth, the film registered sensational figures on Saturday with $ 354K to blaze past the $ 1.3 M mark. On Sunday, the film collected close to $ 200K to take the overall tally past $ 1.5 M. This is a mind blowing run for a film made with limited budget and a director with little success ratio in recent times. Geetha Govindam is Vijay’s third blockbuster in overseas after Pelli Choopulu and Arjun Reddy. The film is all set to emerge as Vijay’s highest grossing film in overseas very soon.
On the other side, Adivi Sesh’s impressive and slick spy thriller Godachari has surpassed the $ 725K in overseas by the end of its third weekend.
