Big Releases Ahead

After the sunami of other language movies like Ra.One, Velayudham and Ezham Arivu, there are few big releases in the coming weeks.

This week releases are Kanchana and Obavva. Kanchana stars Diganth and Ragini. Obavva stars Ayesha and Deepak. There is not much expectation on this week's releases.

But in November we can expect few big releases unlike lst two weeks. Movies releasing include Ravichandran's Narasimha, Sudeep's Vishnu Vardhana, Vijay's Jarasandha, Ganesh's Shyloo and Maduve Mane, Jaggesh's Bodyguard.

In first week of november, Ganesh's Maduve Mane is confirmed and Bodyguard may also release on the same day if they get the proper theatres setup. So it would be double bonanza for Kannadigas in KANNADA RAJYOTSAVA week

In second week of november, Vijay's Jarasandha is confirmed and even makers of Vishnu Vardhana have announced already that they ll release their movie in November second week. But even audio of the movie is also not released.

With this movies, there are lots of small budgeted movies which are awaiting their turn.

Diganth starrer Taare is releasing tomorrow. Shivaraj Hoskere is the director of this movie. C.R.Bobby is the music director of the movie.

Ravish is the producer. Sanjana and Urvarshi are the heroines.Movie started its principal shooting few years back.

Once he was back,  he completed the shoot with the help of his friends and finally he is releasing the movie tomorrow.

Movie is being released by the producer on his own. Satellite Rights would have fetched decent amount because of Diganth factor. But the remaining part is to be recovered from Theatres.

Movies Releasing This Week

Ahead of Diwali, this week 3 movies are releasing. Tarun starrer Nannala and Ishta are confirmed. However Diganth's Taare is yet to get the theatre setup required.

Tarun starrer Nannala is directed by Dinesh Babu. This is thriller flick which will bring audience to edge of the seat by the end of the movie. Shubha Punja is the heroine. Anant Nag, Urvarshi and Rangayana Raghu play other important roles. Movie is  produced by D.B.Kumaraswamy who has produced lots of TV Rights movies in the past. Giridhar Divan of Chiru fame has provided music.

Movie is being released by the producer itself through Ganesh Enterprises. Movie is made with the budget of 1 crore. Most part of the budget is recovered by Satellite Rights and the remaining part is to be recovered by theatrical revenues. If the content is good, then producer may recover his expenses.

Ishta is completely made by bunch of new comers. Bhumika is the heroine of the movie. Her father Vijaykumar Chabria who is into cable business is producing this movie for his daughter. Her mother Smt.Indrani Chabria is the music director of the movie.Music of the movie has been liked by the audience to a certain extent but which may not help the movie in getting the required openings

Movie is released by the producers on their own. Movie is made with the moderate budget. Even the satellite rights would not fetch the good amount so the budget should be recovered completely by theatrical share.

We will let you know about the other movies Taare and Mathe Banni Preethsona once its release gets confirmed.

Sarathy or Paramathma..??

As one of the website reported today as to which movie is a bigger hit, whether its Sarathy or Paramathma..??. Normal movie goers would not have understood what they were trying to tell.


Opened with divide talk.
Blockbuster in A centres.
Average (or below average in some centres) in B and C centres
Super Duper Hit in Multiplexes especially


Opened with Positive talk
Super Hit all over.
Below Average in Multplexes.

But why is Paramathma leading or having more collections..??

Its simple, ticket rates were increased all over so because of that collections would be more in all the centres.
Its a super hit in multiplexes so this brings in more collections for the producer of the movie even though its released in less no of screens.
For Ex: Movie collected 23 lakhs in main theatre Santosh but the collections of a Mantri Mall Inox or PVR cinemas alone would be more than 23 lakhs.

Reason why Sarathy is collecting less....

Even though the movie was released in more number of theatres, ticket prices were not increased.
For Ex: Prasanna and Veeresh theatres are almost like main theatre for Kannada movies.
Sarathy was released in Prasanna and Paramathma was released in Veeresh.
 Ticket Rates in Prasanna were mere Rs.50 in first week and in Veeresh it was Rs.100.
Same happened all over the state due to which Sarathy collected less compared to Paramathma.

Putra: Content Good Collections Bad

This week there was only one Kannada release which is very rare now a days. Movie released was Putra. Its a remake of tamil movie Em Magan which had Bharath playing the lead role. In Kannada, Diganth plays the lead role.

V.Umakanth is the director and Rose Productions has produced it. Ambari Supritha and Roopashree plays the female lead roles. Director has done pretty good job in bringing this tamil movie to kannada nativity despite fe glitches. Movie is pretty good basically because of the good scrript.

Diganth as a obedient son is pretty good. But this cant be said to Supriya. Other character artists have played their part pretty well. Avinash as Diganth's father has performed well. Music is ordinary.

Saying this openings are pretty average. Except the main theatre Anupama, in other places openings were below average. It looks like Lifeu Ishtene success has not helped Putra to get good openings.

KFI's Records are now Paramathma's Records

To start with the movie was the most expected movie and the expectations reached yet another level after the music was out. Movie was released last week amidst the huge expections in more than 75 theatres. But the openings got were almost unexpected.

In a side theatre like Uma, collections were over 21 lakhs. A new Multiplex DRC recorded 100% collections. The movie is doing really well over the state. Inox in Mantri Mall had continuous fulls for five days which itself is a new record. Two Screens in Veeresh were running with packed houses.

Break-up of the day wise collections (According to our source)

1st day-1.81 crores
2nd day-1.76 crores
3rd day-1.80 crores
4th day-1.90 crores
5th day-1.15 crores
6th day-1.50 crores
7th day-1.20 crores
8th day-1.12 crores

So the one week gross share comes upto 12+ crores which is really a big share for a kannada movie which is screened in less than 100 theatres. Seeing the current trend and as there are no big releases this week, movie may get good 2nd week share also.
