This week again namma Kannada Cinema saw a total number of 6 films hitting on the silver screens of Karnataka.
The first one comes Priyanka Upendra’s crime cum social drama 2nd Half which is directed by Yogi Devagange. The surprising part here is, despite of the film’s little slow pace in the beginning, the viewers are actually enjoying the film. The another plus point which is going in favor of the film is terrific performances from Priyanka Upendra, Surabhi Santhosh and Niranjan.
According to our reports, 2nd Half has successfully made a business of 1.10 Crores in two days from all over Karnataka. The good word of mouth publicity is also likely to grow more in coming days.
The second film is Jayathirtha’s Vanilla which is a Mystery-Thriller. It seems like audience is slowly getting bored of Horror Film dose in Kannada Cinema and they are now moving towards other genres.
The tight screenplay and an amazing execution by Jayathirtha makes Vanilla a winner at the Box Office. Our reports says Vanilla has made a business of 60 Lakhs in 2 days. The favorable reviews and on going strong word of mouth publicity will add more to the film.
The third release is a silent thriller called Paridhi. Paridhi was supposed to release last week but due to the flow chart of 6 films that got released, Paridhi now releases this week.
Paridhi opened to a very dull response where people silently moved away from cinema halls avoiding the film. After the failure of Tamil Silent thriller Mercury some time back, the viewers were not ready to watch another one. The film could barely make some 1.5 to 2 Lakhs.
Navila Kinnari, a film which is based on Dance met with the same fate. Despite of a lovely story-telling, the audience were least interested in the film.
Navila Kinnari also fell flat when it came for Publicity or Marketing. There was absolutely no buzz about the film. Again, the film hardly made 1.5 to 2 Lakhs where ever it was released.
There were other two Kannada Films which saw a release with very less and limited screens. Bicycle Boys and J. Both of them met a very bad fate.
