Kerala Box Office : 1971 Beyond Borders Collection Report 35 Days
Mohanlal’s last outing was 1971 Beyond Borders, the fourth installment in the Major Mahadevan series directed by Major Ravi. The movie was a disappointing affair even for the star’s hardcore fans.
Mohanlal was riding on the back of three huge blockbusters- Oppam, Pulimurugan and Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol before he hit roadblock with 1971 Beyond Borders. The Major Ravi directorial was panned heavily by the critics for it’s age old storytelling and making style.
Only a handful of theatres are screening the movie in the state. According to latest reports from trade sources, the movie has managed to gross just Rs 6.71 crores from it’s 35 days theatrical run. The producer’s share is estimated to be approximately Rs 3 crores alone.
The film, based on the 1971 Indo-Pak war was made as a big budget movie with a huge star cast. The director had roped in several actors from other industries like Allu Sirish, Arunoday Singh, Srushti Dange and Priyanka Agarwal to give it a pan- Indian appeal. Haneef Muhammed’s Red Rose Creations produced the movie.
