Sir,
You are probably right about Nishkarsha. It released in last week of December 1993 and Odahuttidavaru released on 17 February 1994 which leaves a gap of 8 weeks that indicates Nishkarsha might have completed 8 weeks in Santhosh.

Himapatha might have ran 7 weeks but not sure if it was commercially hit.. or average/below average.. will enquire and get back about it...

Ellaranthalla Nanna Ganda was a flop I heard when I enquired few years back.

Appaji a hit movie but not sure about 50 days.

Yamakinkara was a huge flop that dented the image of Dada among the audience quite a lot at that time.

Kunti Puttra already mentioned 50 days.

Yaare Neenu Cheluve cannot be included in VV hit list because it was only an extended cameo / guest role and mainly a Ravichandran film.

Hrudaya Geethe was a 100 days movie.

Soubhagya Lakshmi already mentioned 100 days.

Shubha Milana 7 weeks as per various sources.

Ekadanta, Neenello Naanalle, Maathad Maathadu Mallige were 7 weeks but commercially flop movies, pushed.

Sahukara 7 weeks in Sagar, guest role.

Nee Thanda Kaaike Sharabi remake, flop 2 weeks.

Jeevana Chakra 50 days in Sagar.

Mutthaide Bhaagya guest appearance.

will try to verify Kaalinga, Himapatha & Dhani.

Some clarifications:

Simhadriya Simha - 15 weeks at Aparna, 25 weeks in Mysore/other center
FB_IMG_1487518771632.jpg

Gandhadagudi Dr Rajkumar movie but Vishnu role had weightage and he was the main antogonist or anti hero. Hence it's included.

Krishna Nee Begane Baaro silver jubilee function was celebrated along with Maneye Mantraalaya, even if 10 weeks in Sagar.

Sooryavamsha 100 days in 16 theaters including Menaka and 25 weeks in 4 centers/theaters.

Sahodarara Savaal ran 25 weeks as per this article by The Hindu : Noted film producer-distributor A.R. Raju no more
But not sure about the authenticity. In any case it would have probably ran 100 days/25 weeks in shifted/combined/other center run even if just 7 weeks in main theater and was a successful film.

Soorappa - surely 8-10 weeks in Kalpana, 100 days in other center (100 days function celebrated) - got good opening (Vishnu's peak time)

Karmika Kallanalla - 7 weeks as per seniors

Appaji - 5 weeks - but profitable with good opening

Himapatha - 8-10 weeks in Aparna, flop in B,C centers - Average (A-centers hit)

Dhani - 5 weeks - below average grosser
