Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kaala' is not enticing the NRI audiences to book the tickets.
While the Telugu version got totally negative to pretty ordinary reviews from critics, the Tamil version relatively received better reviews and praise from the critics.
With so much divided talk and mixed reviews, the audiences in USA are not showing that much enthusiasm to watch this film.
By end of first day, the film grossed mere $746k, a way too low collection for a Rajinikanth starrer.
Rajinikanth and Ranjith's previous collaboration brought in nearly $2.7 million dollars by end of first day in USA.
In other words, 'Kaala' grossed $2 million less than 'Kabaali'. It is clear that it is unlikely to recover the investment for distributor.
