Dear Dakanda makes 60 million baht

Dear Dakanda, the sweet romantic comedy by Khomkrit Treewimol, earned 60 million baht (about US$1.4 million) in its first week -- a good start in the Thai film market.

It also made 6.1 million baht in its opening day, breaking a record for romantic comedies, which was held by 2003's February, which earned 5.2 million baht when it opened, according to The Nation's print-only Soopsip column.

GTH, or GMM Tai Hub, was partying to celebrate the success of the film. The company has been taking a relative beating at the box office this year compared to behemoth Sahamongkol Film, especially with The Tin Mine, an epic historical comedy-drama, which tanked.
