Kerala Box-Office – March 2013

Thursday, 11 April, 2013, 07:15

Box-office collections of March releases picked up during the Easter weekend (Mar 29 to 31). The start of the holiday season helped to get back the youth and family audiences.Lijo Jose Pellissery`s Amen which got rave reviews from day one doubled its collection in the second week and is the clear number one of the month. It has taken a distributors share of Rs 1.80 Crore in 10 days. The romance between Fahadh and Swati, music by Prasanth Pillai and camera of Abinandhan Ramanujam has repeat audiences among the youth and is also a favourite with the family viewers.At number two is the big blockbuster of the year so far, Romans still running to full houses during weekends. Romans have become the first blockbuster hit of the year and may do Rs 6 Crores from theatricals alone, which is huge.At number three is Sugeeth`s 3 Dots, which took a decent opening thanks to his earlier Ordinary and the pairing of Chackochan- Biju Menon, but subsequently fell as people found it to be boring due to its length (2 hours and 40 minutes).In the fourth position is Mohanlal`s Red Wine, which turned out to be a disaster. The film collapsed after first day due to bad word-of-mouth. The producers even chopped the climax, still did not pick up.And in the fifth position is Vinayan`s Dracula, surprisingly doing well in B & C. In Trivandrum Ramya the film has got a distributor`s share of Rs 18.5 lakhs in 50 days!
