|The big news at the Kerala box office is that Elsamma has toppled Shikar!
In the David and Goliath battle, Lal Joseís Elsamma Enna Aankutty has collected more in its third week (September 24 to 30) than Mohanlalís Shikar !
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 distributorís 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.
Vinayanís Yakshiyum Njanum is in the last position.
Meanwhile, the next box office chart is sure going to be something as Rajinikanthís Enthiran released in 128 screens in Kerala on October 1.
