'Anaconda' devours six million viewers on Star Gold

MUMBAI: The Hindi version of the popular Hollywood blockbuster Anaconda which was telecast on Star Gold, created sensation by registering a whopping TVR of 3.3 with a reach of six million.


 The film, that occupied the top spot in the weekly ratings, (week 16-22 November) is about the killer snake, who lurks inside the Amazon river. This killing machine, the charismatic loner, has literally managed to woo over six million India cinema lovers close to him.

On Star Gold, Anaconda registered a TVR of 3.3 and a share of 12.9 as against Zee Cinema that registered a TVR of 1.4 and a share of 5.6 and Max with a TVR of 0.6 and a share of 2.4 in that time period according to a survey by AC Nielsen-TAM, Base C&S 4+ for Hindi-speaking markets.

The next big Hollywood-dubbed Hindi film on Star Gold is Jurassic Park 2:The Lost World which will be aired on 27 December. This film ranks fifth amongst the all-time best box office openings and is the fastest film to reach $100 million by getting to the magic figure within six days to equal Harry Potter 2 and ahead of Mission Impossible, Men in Black and even Titanic (which took 12 days to reach the $100 million mark).

We'll have to wait and see whether the dinosaur manages to gobble up the anaconda in the ratings race.
