Bangalore, Sep 21 (IANS) 'Cheluvina Chiththaara', set to complete 100 days in the first week of October, tops the list of Kannada films this fortnight.
The top five Kannada films are:
1. 'Cheluvina Chiththaara' - This is by far the biggest box office hit of the year. The collections have not subsided despite competition from big releases. In some centres, the film, which is a remake of the Tamil hit 'Kaadal', has been able to collect even more than last year's blockbuster 'Mungaru Male'.
2. 'Mathadu Mathadu Mallige' - Director Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar's film continues to do well even in its fourth week and the collections have been rock-steady. The film's success adds another feather in actor Vishnuvardhan's hat. Last year, his 'Sirivantha' turned out to be a good revenue-earner. Chandrashekhar's direction and dialogues are the film's major attractions.
3. 'Anaatharu' - A remake of Tamil hit 'Pithamagan', the film has opened to a bumper response. It is expected to do very well mainly because Upendra has given one of his best performances in the film.
4. 'Milana' - The film is directed by Prakash, who is known for providing a classic touch to his creations. Actor Puneet Raj Kumar is a big draw at the box office and the initial collections have been predictably good.
5. 'Mungaru Male' - It is still running well in all the major centres where it is expected to complete a year.
