Box office is unpredictable in Coastalwood. We do not have proper measure, which can calculate the box office collections of the films. We are dependent on producer who gives figure. And now according to sources close to makers of “Ambar Caterers”, the film has reportedly collected 1 crore!
We do not know if this is true. But the film, which was released on November 24 is doing good business in box office. The film, which made news thanks to Sandalwood stars Sindhu Loknath, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan and Sharath Lohitashwa playing pivotal roles in the film, got average reviews.
The film was praised for music, acting and content. However the story of the film was criticised by a certain section of audience, who felt that the film had many unnecessary scenes. The film was lavishly made by Suresh S Bhandary under the banner of Nageshwara Cine Combines. Jaiprasad Bajal directed the film. Saurabh Bhandary made his debut as actor with this film.
Kuseldarase Naveen D Padil, Aravind Bolar, Bhojaraj Vamanjoor and others were in the main cast. Manikanth Kadri has composed the music for four songs, which were big hits.
In Coastalwood, most of the film fail. The reason for this is poor technical quality and old fashioned story. However some films have been exception. This year, Devdas Kapikad directorial “Are Marler” was a success and it ran for 100 days. “Yesa” was also a decent success and it ran for 50 days. And along with this, “Ambar Caterers” was also a success.
“Ambar Caterers” is running in it’s sixth week. It is running in three shows at Big Cinemas, 1 in Cinepolis and 4 shows in Jyoti Talkies, which is great for a Tulu film. The film has great chances of completing 100 days.
The film will also release in other cities as well as other countries. So we can expect more revenue in coming days. The biggest find of the film is undoubtedly the lead hero Saurabh Bhandary. If he selects good films, he has great chances of becoming next big superstar in Coastalwood.
