Contrary to the perceptions and predictions in the revenue and commercially focused trade analysts, the film Bhageerathi directed by Baragooru Ramachandrappa and produced by B.K.Sreenivas is inching towards a fifty day run. The producer Benkoshri is quite happy at the turn of events and says that he is getting share from all the film theatres where the film is running. The collections in the theatres which have opened in the third week of the film's release in Bengaluru is also satisfactory, claims Benkoshri.
Benkoshri says that the film is doing good more than his expectations and he will continue in Kailash theatre to the extent the film is getting share. "I am not a person to run the film in deficit. I have learnt hard lessons. I gave a full week's rent for my first film "Mandakini', but the film did not run well. My second film "Alemaari' ran very well, but I did not chose to continue in theatres when there was some threat of deficit. I made a break even through this film. Many people in the film industry threatened me that I was taking a big risk by releasing in more number of theatres, but the results have been positive. I will also release the film in interiors also and I am sure that the film will be much appreciated Releasing the film in a relatively smaller occupancy theatre like Kailash has really helped me' says Benkoshri.
Benkoshri is also upset that some people were doing anti publicity on the film without knowing the collections. "I will challenge them to prove that Kailash theatre had collections below Rs. 2000 in any show out of 84 shows screened even when it had rained' says an angry Benkoshri. .
Even trade analysts admit that the film is doing well in comparison with other films directed by Baragooru Ramachandrappa mainly because of the high voltage publicity done by Benkoshri. ' The film's content is also well known and the audience have liked the performances of the artists and good production values' says Benkoshri.
