Petta vs Viswasam Box Office Collection: It's a double treat for movie lovers this Pongal. Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj and starring Rajinikanth, and Viswasam, directed by Sivakumar Jayakumar and featuring Ajith Kumar have hit the theatres today and fans have already gone crazy over the movies. While the Petta is Rajinikanth's entertaining throwback to the kind of films he did in the 1990s, Viswasam story is set into the world of Thooku Durai - a village chief who is loved by his people.
Both the films have received between three to four stars in the reviews and the early shows have received a good response as of now.
Film critic and trade analyst Akshaye Rathi said that the films will be creating records in Tamil Nadu.
"Both the films are highly anticipated and have been released at the time of Pongal. It's just like an Aamir Khan movie on Diwali or Christmas and Salman Khan movie on Eid coming together on the same day. Any guess in terms of numbers will be premature now," said Rathi.
