Kerala Box-Office - April 2013

Monday, 29 April, 2013, 07:41

The little known director Lijo Jose Pellissery with Amen has become the number one director based on the films collection and critical acclaim. Amen when it released was a slow starter but strong word of mouth and family audiences has made it a super hit.Trade sources say Amen made for Rs 3.5 Crore will do around Rs 6 Crore from Kerala theatricals alone. On return on investment it is the clear summer holiday winner and number one at the KBO.In the second position is Dileep`s Sound Thoma, which critics may not have liked but at the box-office, it is a safe bet. And in the third place is Mammootty`s Lal Jose directed Immanuel, which is being liked by family audiences and can be classified as a hit.But what has shocked the industry is the failure of the big budget Mohanlal`s Siddique directed Ladies & Gentleman, which collapsed after a good opening. The new generation viewers found it difficult to stomach and even it was outdated for the family audiences. The film is in the fourth position.At number five is this year`s biggest hit Romans, which continues its march to 100 days in key cities and is doing roaring business in B & C markets.
