Rajinikanth's Petta carried a lot of pressure to become a hit, which the superstar wanted the most.

Film critic and trade analyst Ramesh Bala took to his official Twitter account on January 12 and revealed that Petta has crossed $1 million at the USA box office, which makes it Rajinikanth's 7th film to hit the milestone. However, the film has not exactly warmed up to the native audience as well as Viswasam has.

While it is yet to spin the true-blue Rajini magic, the movie has impressed the fans of Thalaivar sufficiently. Along with Rajinikanth, Petta stars actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Sethupathi, Simran, Trisha, Malavika Mohanan, Bobby Simhaa and Megha Akash in prominent roles.

India Today reviewer Janani K rated the film 2.5 stars out of 5 and wrote, "Viswasam's story sounds like a decent commercial potboiler which could have worked if the director hadn't given it a pedantic treatment".

Viswasam vs Petta box office collection day 3: Though Ajith starrer film Viswasam did better than Rajinikanth's Petta in Tamil Nadu, the latter's worldwide collection surpassed the former's earnings.

January 10 witnessed the release of two of the biggest and most hyped and anticipated movies of the year, the Superstar Rajnikanth - Karthik Subbaraj combo's action mass entertainer Petta, and Thala Ajith - Siva combo's rural entertainer Viswasam, and there was huge frenzy surrounding them.
