The Kannada movie Lee, starring Sumanth Shailendra and Nabha Natesh, has hit the theatres today(Jan 13). If you think that only one Kannada film is releasing today and it can make merry at the box office, then you are wrong! It has to compete with three biggies of Telugu and Tamil.
Lee has released in over 80 theaters throughout the state. The film is being marketed by leading distributor Jayanna Films, but even that did not help the film in getting a big release. Menaka was confirmed as the main theater in the last moment.
HM Srinandan of Agraja fame has directed the film, which is produced by Sarathy Sathish under Vivid Dreams Entertainment. The film is said to be an action entertainer.
Sumanth, who has been a part of five films, is still waiting for success and he is hoping to get that much awaited success with this flick. The team seems to be very confident about the output, which made them to go ahead with this release date without a second thought.
Even though Lee has released today, Kirik Party is expected to continue its good run at the theatres. The number of shows for this Rakshit Shetty starrer have been increased in the multiplexes.
Trade pundits expect Kirik Party to rake in good moolah this week as well, as there is no big Kannada release. Also, the film is still continuing in over 175 single screens which will ensure good collections even in the third week.
