Pacchani Kaapuram is the first film in TFI to get 29 shows in its I week in the same distribution area. The remake of Pyar Jukhtaa Nahee created this record in Krishna Distribution area. The following are the theatres where it got 29 shows (5 shows on its first day) during its first 7 days :
- Vijayawada – Srinivasa Mahal 2. Vijayawada (Patamata) – RamaKrishna 3.Vijayawada (Gunadala) – Ram Gopal 4. Gudiwada – Sri Balaji 5. Machilipatnam – Radhika Theatre & 6. V.H. Lakshmi Talkies.
Pacchani Kapuram had 2 shows at Raj on its first day and it was continued in the second week (see the footnote in the above ad)!
This was probably the first Fan Mag in TFI with a defined frequency. I am sure this magazine was published till 1986.
First the run was extended till 28-12-82 ( 12th day of release) and the distributors eventually extended the run till 30-12-82 !
Katthula Ratthaiah, the 1972 action film, was released in Sandhya 35mm, in Hyderabad on 31/07/1987 and had a cumulative 50 days in the Twin Cities with regular shows. Superstar Krishna is the first hero to have two films which ran for 50 days with regular shows in two successive years. Katthula Ratthaiah had 4 shows per day for 3 days in its 7th week at Geeth A/C, Ramachandrapuram
