It is a dull period at the Kerala box-office. Nearly a dozen films released in the last three Fridays and all of them bombed! Films like Face 2 Face, Scene Onnu Nammude Veedu, Madirasi, Poppins were colossal flops, which will not even recover its print and publicity cost.
Dileep`s My Boss slowly turned out to be a super hit for the star and is in the number one position and has taken a share of nearly Rs 3.60 Cr in four weeks from Kerala and is still going strong. At Ernakulam Padma, it has netted Rs 38.5 lakhs in 35 days, which is simply awesome. In Trivandrum Sreekumar it has netted Rs 34.6 lakhs and is a super hit.
In the second place is Vijay`s Thuppakki which continues to rock Kerala. As per trade sources the film has taken a distributors` share of Rs 3.75 Crore in 25 days from Kerala and is Vijay`s biggest hit in Kerala. From Trivandrum alone the film has netted Rs 43 lakhs in 25 days, which is phenomenal for a Tamil film.
At number three is Shajoon Kariyal`s Lal-Biju Menon mass entertainer Chettayees, which may scrape through. In the fourth place is Life of Pi in limited release is doing well. Angamally Carnival multiplex has given a share of Rs 2.5 lakhs for the film! In the fifth place is Aayalum Njanum Thammil which is doing well in smaller stations.
