The much-awaited Raavan has emerged one of the biggest setbacks in the key international markets. Besides a talked-about premiere in U.K. before its release, the film also won rave reviews from reputed American critics. But the tremendous hype and the lavish praises haven't translated into excellent figures. Given the extensive release in the international arena, the opening weekend business of Raavan is extremely disappointing in the three major markets - U.K., U.S.A. and Australia. However, its Tamil version, Raavanan, has fared much better in U.K.

Weekend: June 18 - 20, 2010.
