Naayak, which was released two days before Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, had opened to an earth-shattering response and was doing very good collection. Hence, many in the Telugu film industry were very skeptic about the successful opening of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. But undeterred by Naayak, the Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh starrer received an overwhelming response across the globe.
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu bagged positive reviews from film critics and a positive word of mouth took its business upwards in the following days. The movie did superb collection on Sunday and Monday due to Sankranthi holiday. Its area-wise collection is Rs 5.30 cr in Nizam, Rs 3.10 cr in Ceeded, Rs 82 lakh in Nellore, Rs 1.83 cr in Guntur, Rs 1.19 cr in Krishna, Rs 1.20 cr in West Godavari, Rs 1.60 cr in East Godavari, Rs 1.35 cr in Vizag, Rs 6.87 cr in USA and Rs 1.75 in rest of India.
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu has topped the weekend collection chart at the USA Box Office beating much-hyped Hindi movie Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "Telugu film #SVSC is rewriting the rules of the game. Embarked on a mind-blowing start in USA, garnering a rich haul in opening weekend."
However, so far, Pawan Kalyan's all time highest grosser movie Gabbar Singh was the biggest opener at the USA Box Office. The movie had raked in Rs 5.67 crores ($10,19,384) at USA Box Office in 26 days. Now, Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu has smashed this collection record and set its own new weekend record in the country.
