On the occasion of this year's Pongal festival, the admirers have the opportunities to witness the stiff competition between the two movies Petta and Viswasam launched on January 10. Petta stars the actor Rajinikanth while Viswasam features the actor Ajith Kumar in the lead role.

Therefore, the audiences and trade analysts appear to be excited to see the box-office performance of both films. From their box-office receipts at the initial weekend, the two started with a great achievement. Nevertheless, let's wait and see which movie will win the eventual victory in this box-office clash.

Specifically, until last Sunday, at Chennai box office, Petta has earned Rs 3.83 crore whereas Viswasam has garnered Rs 4.81 crore. According to FirstPost's report, Petta has raked in Rs 105 crore globally. Meanwhile, Viswasam's figure has merely stood approximately at Rs 70-75 crore.

On the other hand, trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai reports that Viswasam has achieved a dominant position in the Tamil Nadu box office while Petta has worked effectively in the remaining states of India and the international markets.

Additionally, via Twitter, he predicts that Petta will reach 2 million dollars in upcoming days and become the greatest South Indian film blockbuster in 2019.

In the meantime, Rakesh Gowthaman, Vettri theatre's owner told FirstPost that after four days of release, obviously, both Viswasam and Petta prove themselves to be "super hits". That is good news for the entire entertainment industry. Instead of making predictions that which movie will win the box-office competition, let's the admirers savor both movies during their Pongal seasons.

The film Viswasam was released merely at Tamil box-office, and its Telugu version is planned for its launch on January 25, 2019. Meanwhile, Petta has its premieres in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil on the same day.
