Thursday, January 30th, 2020, 6:53

The number one film at the CBO during the 5-day Pongal holidays weekend is Rajinikanth’s Darbar. Though the film carried mixed reports, as it was released prior to Pongal, the family audiences preferred it over others. Darbar has grossed Rs 13.25 Cr in 11 days from CBO and is the clear number one by a mile!

Dhanush’s Pattas is at number two with an impressive 5-day Pongal gross of Rs 2.15 Cr. In the third place is Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which is the clear Sankranthi winner.

And in the fourth place is Ajay Devgn’s period action drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which is holding good in its second week. Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru has dropped to number five.
