The two new releases, Paa and Radio, started on a slow note on Friday. Paa, of course, had a better start, with the film opening to a 30% response at several plexes. The occupancy picked up by noon shows and the film was in the 60% + range towards the evening shows at plexes of major centres.
The advantage with Paa is, the film is carrying excellent reports and a jump in business is expected the coming days. One will have to wait for the figures of the coming days to ascertain the jump in collections. On the other hand, Radion had a poor start at the ticket window. The opening collections were 10% to 15%, while the reports are weak.
