A major setback for Sunil. Last year, he bounced back with Pularangadu putting an end to flops.
But this year, he scored a big flop with Mr.Pellikoduku. Especially, the film bit the dust in its opening weekend itself in overseas market. The film got an abysmally low amount of Rs 7 lakhs ($ 12,666) from 50 screens in the opening weekend in USA.
The film received criticism for its boring fare and got worst ratings from critics.
