Director Gautham Menon's latest venture Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu (YVM) starring Nani and Samantha in leads, has opened to a fantastic response in America. The Telugu movie has done better business at the USA Box Office than its Tamil version Neethaane En Ponvasantham. Its two days collection is much better than recent biggies in Telugu.
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu was released in 42 screens in the country on Friday, December 14, while its Tamil version Neethaane En Ponvasantham hit 34 screens. Despite getting mixed reviews from film critics, Nani and Samantha starrer managed more footfalls than Jeeva and Samantha starrer. It has topped the collection chart, while the Tamil version landed in the second place.
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu has raked in $51,934 from its screening in both paid previews as well as opening day, while the Tamil version collected $34,699 at the USA Box Office on the first day. The business of both versions went up by 25% on Saturday. The Telugu version has collected $51,398 from 32 locations at the USA collection centres on the second day, while the Tamil version raked in $24,218 from 24 screens.
Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu has raked in $135,123 (Rs 73.68 lakhs) at the USA Box Office in two days, while Neethaane En Ponvasantham grossed $69,708 (Rs 38.01 lakhs). However, the Telugu version has seen a big jump on Sunday. Trade analysts feel that its first weekend collection is expected to gross Rs 1.2 crore at the USA Box Office.
