[New Age Reports] A full-length feature film, Monpura breaks the 45-year record of ticket sale at a box office in Dhaka within three weeks after the release on February 13.
More than 50,000 viewers already bought tickets in the last three weeks to watch the movie, being showed at Balaka Cineworld and Balaka 2, said a hall official.
âIt already broke the record of the countryâs first released film Mukh O Mukhosh, which was showed for six consecutive months, said Balaka manager SR Ahmed Joy, adding about 50,000 people enjoyed the film in 1964.
The hall authorities said they would run the film to the full demand of the viewers.
The film also hit 25 more box offices across the country on Friday for the fourth week, said the boastful director, Giasuddin Selim, who stepped into the world of cinema through the film.
