Box office reports
Mammootty's mass masala Annan Thambi rules Kerala box-office. In two weeks the film has taken a record distributors share of Rs 3.12 crore from 75 screens in Kerala.

The marketing of the film is the prime reason for the film’s huge success. By opening in B & C stations, it has boosted collections. For example the highest distributors’ share so far is from Nedumangad Rani which used to be around Rs 85, 000. For Annan Thambi which released simultaneously in Thiruvananthapuram and Attingal (the two nearest releasing stations), two weeks’ share from the same theatre is Rs 1, 79,436. In Thiruvananthapuram, it grossed Rs 15, 43,918 from two screens in the first week. The simultaneous release did not eat into each others’ collections.

In the number two place is Mohanlal's Innathe Chintavishayam, which from 42 releasing stations has collected a distributors’ share of Rs 1.72 crore in 19 days. Clearly the Sathyan Anthikad film is lagging behind because it did not go for a big release. Now when the film is released in B & C centers later this month, the collections will not be even one third of a simultaneous release. For want of new releases in Malayalam Mulla is in the third place, Cycle at fourth and Katha Parayumbol in the fifth place.

Note : Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
