For the biggest budget film of the 78 history of Kannada cinema it is the biggest turn out of audiences and no doubt the biggest collection in the last 12 days of screening of the film.
On an average it is Rs.2.5 crores gross collection is the estimate and it comes very much near to the investment of Rs.30 crores made on this film 'Kranti Veera Sangolli Rayanna'. In case the collections never drop and continue like this for 50 days this will be the first Kannada film to reach the 100 crores collection chart. Out of Rs.30 crores collected so far nearly Rs.20 crores plus is the share of the producer Anand Appugol.
There has been tremendous response in the multiplex cinema halls and in the northern Karnataka the theatres are screening five shows a day instead of four shows despite the three hours of the film duration. Distributor HD Gangaraju (Tamil super star Rajanikanth film distributor in Karnataka) has increased the ticket price from Rs.5 to 10 at certain pockets.
From 135 theatres in the first week (the film was released on November 1 - Kannada Rajyotsava Day) is now in over 160 theatres. Twenty more theatres are adding up for 16th of November. HD Gangaraju calculation has not failed. Looking after the demand he has increased the theatres. In the normal cases the theatres declining from first week is seen. In the case of 'KVSR' theatres have increased.
'KVSR' a film on the freedom fighter has effectively portrayed the patriotism. It is in fact 200 years ago war against the British Empire by Sangolli Rayanna in the Kittur Rani Chennamma regime - the first guerilla war from Sangolli Rayanna after demise of Queen Kittur Rani Chennamma at the hands of British.
