US BO report : Sita Ramam and Bimbisara give a new lease of life to Tollywood

Tollywood is back in business the last weekend after going through a rough patch due to back-to-back debacles in the last couple of months. Both the domestic and overseas ticket windows have been ringing since Friday, thanks to new releases Bimbisara and Sita Ramam which gave a new lease of life.

In the USA, both Bimbisara and Sita Ramam succeeded in reviving the interest of moviegoers as they pulled in good numbers in the just concluded first weekend. Sita Ramam is performing beyond expectations and Bimbisara has managed to hold its ground by the end of Sunday.

Sita Ramam gained terrific momentum towards the end of the weekend as the numbers showed a very strong improvement after the Thursday premiers. The classy romantic entertainer directed by Hanu Raghavapudi minted $ 500 K by Sunday and emerged as a super hit in the USA. Sita Ramam started on a decent note with $ 90K from its Thursday premiers. Due to strong word of mouth and reviews, the film notched up $ 127K and $ 211K on Friday and Saturday respectively. With Sunday’s decent haul of above $ 100K, the film surpassed the half-a-million-dollar mark.

Both these films are expected to extend their steady run into the second weekend as well as the word of mouth is very promising.
