It has happened as we all expected when Mohanlal came to hunt down the box office with his twirled moustache looks that too in a Ranjith directorial film financed by Aashirvad Cinemas. The film had released yesterday with 141 screens in Kerala and 250 all over India with 1000 shows per day which only Mohanlal can pull off in Mollywood today. Even though the film has received mixed reviews there is no stopping it in box office. There is even talk in our Malayalam film industry that if a Mohanlal film gets an average or above average response from the audience it will become a blockbuster for sure.
Yesterday even after being a working day the theaters showing Loham witnessed heavy rush and at some places extra shows has to be arranged in the evening. Even though mixed opinions were there most of it was positive and that made things easier for the film. As per the official collection report Loham has collected close to 2 crore 14 Lakhs rupees from Kerala alone on its releasing day.
By collecting close to 2.15 core, Loham had set a new opening day record as well. Now Loham is the all time best opener at Kerala Box office history and it has beaten the earlier record of 2.10 crore collection record set by Casanovva in 2012 which was also a Mohanlal starrer as well. A Mohanlal film breaking another Mohanlal film’s record and that is not a new thing here as he is the only star here who can pull off such a mass in Kerala Box office collections.
Loham also broke few more records as well. By this collection it has become the film which got the maximum collection on any single day in Mollywood and also got the record share of 1 crore rupees from its very first day. Getting a share over 1 crore from the opening day is an unbelievable feat in Mollywood Box office and Emperor of Box office has done it here.
