The latest winner in the debut production and direction is Suni of 'Simpe Agi Ondh Love Story' - it is breaking some of the records in the box office in the last four days of release. From sleepless nights for the making of the film it is a happy good night sleeps for Suni an intelligent and bright new technician.
Rockline Multiplex near Dasarahalli has screened 12 shows in one day, Inox Mantri in Malleswaram recorded eight shows, Cine Polis given 8 shows, Orion Mall in Rajajinagar screened 8 shows in a day are some of the pretty good scorings the film has got with marvelous collection. For Rs.75 ticket it is Rs.300 in the black market. Released in 60 plus theatres the astounding is the collection. First day it was Rs.42 lakhs, Second day it was Rs.40 lakhs, third day it was 56 lakhs (on Sunday) and on fourth day it is Rs.40 lakhs plus collection. The television right has reached to Rs.1.70 crores but the final agreement has not taken place as brother of Suni, Hemanth is out of town.
What we ascertained is that there was no House Full board in Nalanda theatre for five years. Simple Agi Ondh Love Story has broken that record, a theatre in Shimoga had not put up house full board so far. The theatre management has made an urgent print out of house full to put up at the entrance of theatre.
Look at Prasanna theatre in the busy locality of Rajajinagar and connecting Vijayanagar in Bangalore on last Sunday the theatre management had to take permission from traffic police to park 300 cars on the road as all of them had come to watch 'SALOS'.
The appreciation is there for freshness in the narration and guts in making a film with two characters most of the time in the film. At the climax point the novel effort of showing the title card is not new but after title card the film taking final turn is interesting. Suni had seen students coming to the films. He has also seen the repeat audience.
Meanwhile the film 'SALOS' in its second week despite of 'Topiwala' and 'Yaarivanu' hitting the silver screen is increasing its theatres.
Suni at the time of release brought Rs.3.5 lakhs for interest of 12 percent. The loan he had raised for theatre rent. He has come out of all tensions. One his assistants will be launched in his home banner 'Suni Cinemas'. That is Harish another new buddy with a title 'Bazaar'.
