Narasimha starring Ravichandran and Nikisha Patel was released in more than 170 theatres.
This was surprising as none of the Kannada films, except those with the current super stars, were released in such a large number of theatres. But the gamble seems to be paying off as could be seen from the initial three days response for the film.
Prasad produced by Ashok Kheny received a lukewarm response. Agent Vinod opened well in multiplexes and single screens to a mixed response while Naa Ishtam opened to an average response.
