One calculation revealed that 300 shows of Bombaat are screened in a day. Rockline Venkatesh, who produced the film on a budget of Rs. 5 crores, is very happy at the audience turnout in theatres. There are several highlights in the film, including the presence of the lovely Ramya, excellent cinematography and the changed image of Ganesh from romantic hero to action hero.
Another film which has a smooth run in theatres is debutant director R. Chandru's Taj Mahal, starring pretty Pooja Gandhi and Ajay Rao. This tragic film has found its own audience and Chandru has become very popular. Another film (a teenage drama), Moggina Manasu, had a dip in its collection as new films like Taj Mahal and Bombaat were released. The Kannada box office will see the heat building up with two more big films Arjun and Anthu Inthu Preethi Banthu releasing this Friday.
