Kerala Box Office : Sachin The Billion Dreams Final Collection Report
Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar’s biopic, Sachin: A Billion Dreams was released on May 26 amid great expectations. It was released in 2400 screens in India and 400 screens overseas. The film, directed by James Erskine
opened to largely positive reports from the critics.
However, the movie had a very low profile release in Kerala. It film had a limited release finding screens mostly in multiplexes. According to reports from trade sources, Sachin: A Billion Dreams has managed to earn only Rs 1.90 crores from it’s theatrical run in the state.
The Kerala box office is highly competitive now with Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Godha and Adventures Of Omanakuttan, all doing good business. Sadly, Sachin’s biopic has ended it’s theatrical run failing to create any sort of impact in the box office
However, in the North Indian states and some overseas centres, the movie has done good business. It is inching closer to the 50 crore mark. The film has already surpassed the lifetime collections of Naam Shabana, which stood at the 8th position with a collection of 36.50 crores. Sachin’s biopic is now become the 8th highest grosser of the year.
Sachin: A Billion Dreams is a docu-drama, a first of it’s kind attempt in Indian cinema. Despite that, the movie has managed to do such great business only because of the massive fan base that Sachin Tendulkar enjoys.
The film, directed by James Erskine showcases Sachin Tendulkar’s journey from his childhood to become the world’s best cricketer. Apart from his cricket and personal life, it also reveals certain unknown aspects of his life.
The film has real footage from Sachin’s personal life to the years he spent on the field. Sachin Tendulkar, his wife Anjali, kids Sara and Arjun feature in the film. Popular Indian players like Virat Kohli, M S Dhoni and Virender Sehwag are also seen sharing their experiences with the legend.
Oscar Award winner AR Rahman has composed the music. The film was shot simultaneously in Hindi, Marathi and English. It was dubbed and released in Tamil and Telugu languages.
Sachin: A Billion Dreams is produced by Ravi Bhagchandka and Carnival Motion Pictures under the banner of 200 NotOut Productions.
