Bangalore, March 18 (IANS) 'Gaja' has marched ahead of other popular Kannada films like 'Galipata' and 'Bindaas' to grab the No.1 spot in the charts.
The top five Kannada films are:
1. 'Gaja': The film has made it to the top of the list by its steady performance through 11 weeks.
2. 'Bindaas': This Puneet Raj Kumar-starrer has sustained its run in major centres like Bangalore, Mysore, Hubli and Davanagere. But in other centres the collections have shown a downslide.
3. 'Galipata': The film has completed 50 days in around 30 centres. The question is whether it will make it to the 100-day mark in at least a few centres? The collections are showing a drop in many centres. The film may not turn out to be a big hit as the earlier Ganesh-starrers.
4. 'Nanda Nanditha': For the film's hero Yogeesh, it is his second film. He had portrayed the role of Loose Mada in his first film 'Duniya' directed by Soori. The role had struck a chord among the audiences.
5. 'Aa Dinagalu': The film is a hit in major centres but has not been received so well in B and C centres. It is still a reasonable success for debutant director Chaithanya.
