Mangaluru (TOI) Battling anxiety over pre-release piracy and perceived apathy in police investigation in to their complaint, producers of Tulu film Dabak Daba Aisa are keeping fingers crossed ahead of its August 5 release. Having set record for fledgling Tulu film industry with Chaali Polilu, the first film launched under Jayakirana Films banner that ran for a record 511-days, the producers are hoping for similar if not repeat success with their second offering Dabak Daba Aisa.
Journalist-turned-director Prakash Pandeshwar, who produced Chaali Polilu told TOI that he is not looking for a prolonged run for Dabak Daba Aisa. "With 22 screenings assured in the three multiplexes in the city, a record for Tulu film industry, we are looking at maximizing revenues in the opening week," he confided. Incidentally, the three multiplexes have given nine, seven and six slots for the film in the opening week to go with regular screenings in single screens.
Averring that it is not easy to get the above mentioned number of slots in cineplexes, Prakash said the success of Chaali Polilu could have spurred this reaction. "We wanted to have limited number of screenings so that it attracted crowds and the halls ran full," he said adding either way, opening week should be decisive for the 72nd film of Tulu film industry. "The rank family entertainer lasting 130 minutes should keep the audience engrossed for the entire duration," he said.
The film incidentally also saw the multiplexes open advance online bookings since Monday, again a new trend for Tulu films. All set for release in a dozen single screen and multiplexes in the twin districts of Udupi and DK, Prakash said the film will have English sub-titles so that it reaches even those not tuned to Tulu. On a personal note, Prakash averred that Dabak Daba Aisa has come out even better than Chaali Polilu and should do better business at the box office.
