US BO: PS 2, Virupaksha Emerge as Winners

Two major South Indian films competed against each other over the weekend. They are Akhil Akkineni's "Agent" and Mani Ratnam's epic drama "PS 2". While Akhil's film was only released in Telugu, "PS 2" was released in multiple languages.

"Agent" had slightly delayed premieres in the United States due to print shipment delays. However, the film could not be saved because word of mouth and reviews were overwhelmingly negative. So it turned out to be a flop.

#Agent - Fri: $150,937 Sat: $21,753 Sun: $10000 Total Weekend Gross: $182k

Mani Ratnam's "PS 2" on the other hand exceeded expectations. On its first weekend, the film grossed nearly $4 million. The film is on its way to becoming a smash hit in the United States.

#PS2 - Fri: $1,722,531 Sat: $1,165,411 Sun: $7,00,000 Total: $3.6M

With "Agent" failing miserably, Sai Dharam Tej's "Virupaksha" soared. The film became the biggest blockbuster in Sai Dharam Tej's career, bringing in huge profits for the film's distributor in the United States. The film's cumulative total stands at about $1.2 million.
