Top league actress Samantha starrer Yashoda, a lady-oriented psychological thriller, seems to have gained good momentum at the box office over the first weekend. After taking a moderate yet impressive start on Friday, Yashoda saw a considerable increase in footfalls on Saturday and an encouraging trend of bookings for Sunday.
In USA, Yashoda is running successfully with decent occupancies despite releasing in limited locations. After an impressive start with $ 200K from the first day ( Premiers- 65K + Friday – $ 133K), Yashoda added another $ 100K + on Saturday to take the tally past the $ 300K mark. This is a promising trend for a female-centric film with no big male star. Samantha’s spirited performance in this emotional drama is the selling point.
Going by the trend of advance sales, Yashoda is likely to run past the $ 400K mark by the end of the Weekend and emerge as a clean box office hit in Overseas. The domestic numbers are also quite encouraging for Yashoda.
