Kerala box office: September 17 to 30

Tuesday, 5 October, 2010, 05:30

Elsamma Enna Aankutty is clearly the number one as it has become a craze among family and women audiences. Shikar took an extraordinary bumper opening in its first week and collected a distributor’s share of approximately Rs 2.10 crore, but has subsequently slowed.Elsamma on the other hand took a lukewarm opening but caught on like wild fire and by its third week was able to overtake Shikar, which is now in the second position.At number three is a very strong Pranchiyettan and the Saint, which is steady and holding on very well, and now can be classified as a hit. The film will cover its production cost and make a profit from theatricals alone.In fourth place is the Arya: Nayanthara starrer Boss Engira Baskaran, a super hit in Tamil Nadu but very average in Kerala.Vinayan’s Yakshiyum Njanum is in the last position.Meanwhile, the next box office chart is sure going to be something as Rajinikanth’s Enthiran released in 128 screens in Kerala on October 1.
