Kabali opened to No.1 in India, and Malaysia, and No. 3 in USA – Canada, and Number 10 at UK Box Office.
Film Trade Analyst, Taran Adarsh asks ‘If this is not EARTH-SHATTERING, what is?‘ in his twitter account. Pa. Ranjith’s Kabali starring Superstar Rajinikanth was expected to break several records at box office and it is doing exactly what was expected. The film was opened with mixed reviews from critics and audience on day one, especially from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, but that does not seem to effect the business in any visible way. Anyway, after the mixed reviews on day one, the film started to get positive reviews from all around the world.
