US BO: Weekend Growth Helps Sye Raa

“Sye Raa” featuring Megastar Chiranjeevi, Nayanthara, and Tamannah in the lead roles has completed its 6 days run (including premieres).

Premiered on October 1st in a huge number of locations in North America, the film grossed about 2.1 million dollars so far.

With today’s run (Monday), the film will complete the first week in the USA.

The collection of premiere shows for “Sye Raa” was huge but it didn’t add much to its kitty during the weekdays which worried the distributors.

Thankfully, the patriotic period drama made a big jump on Saturday by earning $388k at the box office and Sunday’s figure is also impressive. This brought in its total collection to $2.1 million.

#SyeRaa USA+Canada
Tues: $858K
Wed: $285K
Thur: $131K
Fri: $265K
Sat: $388k
Sun: $185k (apprx)

Total Gross: $2.15 million

If it continues to post decent collection in the second week, “Sye Raa” may reach the break-even stage. Or it would result in losses for the distributor. The film was bought for a moderate price. 

On the other hand, Gopichand’s action drama, “Chanakya”, was a non-starter from the premiere shows itself. It was a total washout.

The film won thumbs down from the critics. Its total cumulative gross stands at $17k

#Chanakya: Premiere: $5,838 Sat: $8.328 Sun: $3k Total Gross: $17k (apprx)

The film has proved once again that Gopichand has no market in the USA market at all.
