Premam back again in news and after sometimes it is a good news for the team behind it. For last few weeks only news coming out about Premam is about the piracy issue in which it had trapped and that affected it big time as well. The leaking of censor copy of the film had really made havoc in the Malayalam film industry and shaken many associations in the industry as well. That case is on the verge of its climax as the culprit has been identified and police are waiting for a little more evidence to come which will completely seal him.
The film had completed 50 days of its theatrical run and the collection report has out as well. It has grossed 38 crore rupees from Kerala alone and its total business had reportedly reached close to 60 crore rupees but the collection outsie Krala is not at all an official one. It a rumour that is going around through various fan pages that the flick had got 60 crores worldwide. The original collection is only available after the termination of the flick from the theaters and the figures they are saying the film has got from outside is defying logic as well.
As the unconfirmed report says it had broken the rest of India collection made by Bangalore Days and now Premam’s rest of India collection stands on 7.5 crore rupees. The worldwide gross of Premam outside India also reached almost 11 crore and thus it had amassed almost 57 crore rupees approximately.
It had already crossed the 50 crore total revenue made by Bangalore Days as well and now officially the second biggest hit in the industry. The only film that stands in front of Premam is Mohanlal starrer film directed by Jeethu Joseph named Drishyam. It had a total revenue more than 75 crores. In Kerala gross also Drishyam is way ahead than Premam with 44 crore and its rest of India gross is also above 10 crore rupees. The outside India gross of the film is above 11 crore and thus made above 66 crores from theater run alone. Premam had almost 57 crores from theater run now and need total 10 crore more to beat Drishyam in theater gross.
But task to beat Drishyam seems a distant chance as the Piracy had really affected the flick badly and now the one after other releases taking away many stations from Premam as well. And to collect 6 crore more from Kerala to beat Drishyam seems impossible now but the Premam team can be proud of themselves to reach where they are now even after many barriers were there before them to cross.
