Thuppakki went on to gross an amazing Rs 7.26 Cr in its first two weeks (Nov 13 to 26), which is phenomenal by any yardstick for another language film in Kerala. It is the clear number one at KBO, by a mile.The trade buzz is that Shibu of Thameens the distributor of the film made approximately Rs 3 crore in two weeks, for a film which was purchased for Rs 2.50 Crore! Thuppakki is a super hit in Kerala and has a life time potential of doing Rs 4 to 4.5 Cr business for the distributor.Dileep’s My Boss is another super hit for the star and is reported to have taken a share of nearly Rs 2 crores in its first two weeks and is still going strong. At Ernakulam Padma, the film has done Rs 27.5 lakhs net in the first 20 days, which is super. My Boss rocks at the number two position.In the third place is Lal Jose`s Aayalum Nanum Thammil (ANT) a hit, which has now taken a distributor’s share of Rs 2.55 Crore in four weeks. The film lost nearly Rs 1 Crore due to the theatre strike.At number four is Shafi’s 101 Weddings, which failed to get an opening though it released in 73 screens. In the fifth position is Ang Lee’s Life of Pi which had a limited release but nearly 90% occupancy in select screens over the weekend.
