Kerala Box-Office (August 16 to 31)

Box office reports
Out of the four Onam releases, Paatinte Palazhi, Yakshiyum Njanum, Athmakatha, 3 Chaar Sau Bees , only Yakshiyum Njanum survived. The rest bombed as expected. Yakshiyum Njanum may cover its cost as it's made on a shoe-string budget of Rs 1.25 Crore and was released wide and was the first choice for the regular movie fans as the film had no opposition, and so is in the number one position.

The movies on television during the Onam weekend was far superior to those at the theatres. Added to that the Noyambu effect was seen as theatres mainly in Malabar area recorded very poor collections.

The Tamil superstar Suriya’s younger brother Karthi’s Naan Mahaan Alla is in the second place. It took a very good opening as it was released simultaneously with Tamil Nadu and in Ernakulam, Kottayam, Palakkad it had a better opening than Onam releases!

At number three is Malarvadi Arts Club, which is steady and due to weak new releases, managed to better business. At number four is Sakudumbum Shyamala, which also got some Onam family audiences in smaller stations. For the sake of a top five we have to includePaatinte Palazhi at number five.
