Bengaluru Box office (Jan 14 to 16)

Despite the opposition from four Telugu and three Tamil films, Boss starring Darshan and Navya Nair seems to be the big winner among the Sakranthi releases. The film has been uniformly well received in the first three days of its release. The film is expected to take the distributors share of around Rs. 3.25 to Rs. 3.5 crores in the first week which will be a record. Another Kannada film that is doing reasonably well is Yesh starrer Modhala Sala directed by debutant Purushotham. The film has been released in a few theatres in Bengaluru which has enabled the producers to make a decent share from its run. The producers also sold coupons in advance which ensure a steady flow of people to the theatres screening the film. All the three Tamil releases seems to be good in their content. The openings have been exceptionally good in the case of Kavalan which was released on Saturday. Among the ohter films it is the Dhanush starrer Adukalam which is doing well. Among the four Telugu releases it is Ravi Teja's Mirpakaaya which is ahead of the other films.
