US box office: Evaru hits while Ranarangam misses majorly
This Independence Day saw the clash of two medium-budget entertainers in the form of Adivi Sesh’s Evaru and Sharwanand’s Ranarangam. While the former collected big, the latter is a flop.
Evaru took a decent start by collecting $61k from the premiere shows which was followed by $43k on Thursday, $73k on Friday and $105k on Saturday. In the opening weekend, the film collected $350k in the US.
Coming to Ranarangam, the decision of not having premiere shows backfired and caused a dent in the collection of the film. It took off to a slow start by collecting $21k on Thursday.
The film continued its disappointing theatrical run with $17k on Friday and $21k on Saturday. On Sunday, it minted $5k taking the cumulative total to less than $75k in the opening weekend in the US.
