We now have arranged for 21 shows for "Poran" while eight shows of "Din: The Day" is currently running in Star Cineplex," informs Mesbah Uddin Ahmed, Senior Manager, Media & Marketing, Star Cineplex. "People of all ages are visiting the halls with their family, friends and loved ones. Seems like, Bangla cinema is bouncing back!"
Mahbubur Rahman, the manager of Blockbuster Cinema also said that Bangla films are doing better than that of last Eid's.
"The sales are at least 20 percent more than that of last Eid's collection. Evening and night shows are mostly houseful," he shared.
Anonno Mamun, the director of "Psycho", said that the film is doing better in the single-screen theatres while "Poran" is doing better in the multiplexes. "I have made this film for the common people and the audience, dripped in sweat, are collecting the tickets after standing in long queues for hours. That, for me, is success," he said.
