This clash might have taken a bite out of each of these movies.

In Coimbatore, mostly all the theatres screened both the movies and the first show was started at 4.30am in the morning.

Rajinikanth's Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj, and Ajith Kumar's Viswasam, directed by Siva, were vying for honours, with fans going all out to prove the superiority of their hero's film over the rival's. This strategy seems to have paid in most parts as audiences flocked to the theatres to catch a glimpse of the superstar in the avatar of Kaali. While Petta has grossed around Rs 48 crore on its first day, Viswasam raked in Rs 43 crore on its opening day at the worldwide box office. The movie available for free to download in view in various file sizes: 1080 Pixel and 720 Pixel with 2.5 GB, 1.4Gb, 500MB, 400MB and 250MB.

In a follow-up tweet, the trade analyst revealed that Pettta has earned Rs 1.12 crores on the first day in Chennai while Viswasam earned Rs 0.88 crores on fthe irst day.

Petta has, however, outperformed Ajith's Viswasam in the overseas box office.

As Rajinikanth's movie release is a kind of festival for his fans, a young couple - Anbarasu and Kamatchi, both ardent fans of the actor - solemnised their marriage at the Woodlands theatre premise in Chennai to coincide with the release of the film. Petta has seemingly overtaken Viswasam by a decent margin. Petta marks the Tamil debut of Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

While the film had only released a day ago, piracy site TamilRockers has leaked the entire film online.
