Kannada film industry's well known writer and director Yogaraj Bhat has now become the toast of the Kannada film fans.
His latest film Drama, starring Yash and Radhika Pandit in lead roles and produced by Jayanna and Bhogeendra, has become the biggest hit in recent times. The mind blowing collections in the first three days for this film, which does not boast of any big star cast, has put the Kannada film industry`s best writer-director in the top spot again.
Drama`s fantastic collections all around the state is only due to Yogaraj Bhat's name which can bring in the college crowd and a large number of family audience to the theatres. The online booking for this film in multiplexes and several single screen theatres can only be rivaled by a film starring Puneet Raj Kumar.
The film is sure to bring in a good share for the producer from the multiplexes. Drama is not only marching ahead in major cities like Bengaluru, Mysore and Davanagere, but also in many interior parts like Shimoga, Hubli Chickmagalur, Chitradurga and other places. The records have been exceptionally good in multiplexes, while single screens are also giving a very good share to producer Jayanna and Bhogeendra.
Bhat had two flops in the beginning of his career after which he delivered Mungaru Male which broke all the existing collection records. Later, he directed films like Galipata, Manasaare and Pancharangi, all of which became hits. However, his last film Paramathma with Puneet Raj Kumar in the lead did not meet the expectations of fans. But Drama has once again brought Bhat to the limelight even as it is creating fresh collection records in the box office.
