Tamil superstar Ajith’s film Viswasam is doing wonders at the Box Office not only in India but also abroad. The film has turned out to be the biggest hit of the actor’s career.
Viswasam released on the same day as Rajinikanth’s Petta and both the films are giving tough competition to each other. Though it is difficult to predict if Ajith’s Viswasam is going to outstand Rajinikanth’s Petta in terms of the gross collection but it is surely leaving the audiences impressed.
Film and trade analyst Ramesh Bala shared what a great hit Ajith’s film was in Tamil Nadu and tweeted, “The historic
#Pongal2019 long holiday period (Jan 10th – Jan 20th) at the TN Box Office has come to an end.. Both the releases did well.. But, thanks to historic collections in B & C Centers, #Thala #Ajith ‘s #Viswasam emerges #Pongal2019 Winner in TN..”Sharing the USA figures of Viswasam he tweeted, After 2nd weekend, #Viswasam ‘s Total gross in #USA is $257,745 [₹ 1.84 Crs]”.
The film became the highest grosser in France and sharing the figures Ramesh wrote, “After TN,
#Viswasam becomes #Thala #Ajith ‘s Highest Grosser in #France Rare for a non-solo release to become a Star’s Highest Grossing Movie in a Market.. 11,887 Entries.. Beating his previous best #Vedalam ‘s 11,240..”.
Both Viswasam and Petta were released on Pongal and are winning hearts. Petta also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Trisha Krishnan and Vijay Sethupathy in pivotal roles. Petta impressed audience so much that one of Rajinikanth’s fan actually decided to get married outside a theatre in Chennai to mark the release date of the film. The video of the couple performing their wedding rituals outside a Chennai theatre went viral on social media today, on January 10.
Viswasam, on the other hand, has spun its magic over Ajith fans and family audience as per trade analysts even though the critics panned the film for being overly dramatic and formulaic.
