Suzume no Tojimari, one of the most successful anime films, from Your Name director Makoto Shinkai, is about to be released in India. The upcoming movie "Suzume No Tojimari" from Makoto Shinkai has recently been teased on PVR Cinema's twitter account.
Suzume, a 17-year-old girl who lives in a quiet town in Kyushu, encounters a traveling young man who tells her "I'm looking for a door." She follows after him and discovers a weathered door in the ruins in the mountains, as if it were the only thing left standing from a collapse. As if drawn by something, Suzume reaches for the door...
Before long, doors begin to open one after another in various parts of Japan. As disasters come from the far side of the doors, the open doors must be closed.
The stars, the setting sun, and the morning sky—in that place she wandered into, there was a sky that seemingly blended all of time together. Guided by the mysterious doors, Suzume's "door-locking journey" begins.

Given that they declared their plan to bring in more anime releases in the future, it seems that the PVR Cinemas has begun to concentrate on India's anime community in the meantime. This is a fantastic news for the Indian Anime fans, as they have been waiting for this for a long time.
Popularity in Japan
On November 11, the movie released in Japan at the leading position, selling 1.33 million tickets and earning 1.88 billion yen (about US$13.49 million) in its first three days.
The movie made 47.4% more money and sold 38.7% more tickets than Shinkai's critically praised Your Name, which made 1,277,960,000 yen ($12.51 million at the time) in its first three days. It had the greatest first three days of any of Shinkai's movies, with ticket sales up 14.8% and revenue up 14.4% above his last movie Weathering With You.
We can assume that the movie will also do well in India because of it's rapidly growing Indian community.
