Dhanush-starrer Kodi and Karthi's Kashmora have received good starts at the overseas box office. The Tamil movies have especially done well in the UK, Australia and Malaysia.
Kodi has minted £31,835 (Rs 25.89 lakh) from 27 screens in the UK, while Kashmora, from its Tamil and Telugu versions, earned £17,049 (Rs 13.87 lakh) from 20 screens, reports Bollywood Hungama.
Kaashmora has the upper hand in Australia where it minted A$ 66,172 (33.6 lakh) from 19 screens, while Kodi raked in A$ 44,501(22.6 lakh) from 16 screens. However, in New Zealand, the Karthi and Nayanthara-starrer has earned NZ$ 4,580 (2.19 lakh), but the collection made by the Dhanush and Trisha's film in this region is yet to be revealed.
The biggest overseas centre for Tamil movies has always been Malaysia. Once again, the latest movies have done impressive business in this part of the world.
Kodi collected MYR 4,06,164 (Rs 64.5 lakh) from 24 screens, while Kashmora has raked in MYR 4,04,922 (Rs 64.31 lakh). Prabhu Deva's Devi and Sivakarthikeyan's Remo are still being played at a few centres in this region.
Devi has collected Rs 1.11 crore, while Remo has raked in Rs 1.96 crore in Malaysia.
Meanwhile, Kashmora and Kodi have ended the first weekend on a high note at the domestic box office. As per trade reports, both the films have earned over Rs 20 crore in the three-day weekend.
It has to be noted that both the movies have opened to fairly positive reviews. However, the success of the films depends on how they perform post the opening weekend.
Kodi is a political thriller, written and directed by RS Durai Senthilkumar. The decent storyline backed with an electrifying performance by Dhanush in the lead role have won the hearts of the movie-goers.
On the other hand, Kashmora promises to entertain the viewers with its eye-pleasing visuals backed by fantastic performance from the lead actors.
