Mammootty’s Vishu release film which had released on the Vishu day of this year has got great opening at box office as expected by the industry. This flick is helmed by director Siddique and film features artists like Nayanthara who is one of the most popular actress in south India, popular villain J D Chakravarthy, veteran actor Jananrdhanan, Harisree Ashokan, Kalbhavan Shajon, Saju Navodaya, Rajiv Pillai, Master Sanoop, Baby Anikha, Isha Talwar, Abu Salim and also lots of actors from mini screen. Deepak Dev had composed the songs for this Siddique film and it was through a Siddique film named Chronic Bachelor that he made his mark in the industry as well.
The collection report which was not an official one and it says that the film had earned rupees 3.10 core from two days of its run and it had many houseful shows in the first two days owing to the holidays and also to the festival of Vishu and the collection was steady in first two days. And other reports says that the film had earned rupees 5.6 crore as satellite right and the satellite right was brought by Surya TV.
The movie is a family film which tells the story in a humorous way and intended to be a festival celebration by its crew and Bhaskar had got by far the best opening day collection when we consider the other Vishu season film collections. Now we have to wait if the film sustains its steady rate of collection in the coming days and end up as a hit or not as the support of the family audience will start to count from the coming days.
The other films which came before Vishu such as Mohanlal’s sathyan anthikkad directorial flick Ennum Eppozhum and Nivin Pauly’s Prejith directorial flick Oru Vadakkan Selfie had already secured super hit status at box office with total gross reached close to 10 crore rupees from 17 days and they also reached close to 7000 shoes in Kerala alone. And if Bhasakr too does the same this Vishu season will be one of the best seasons for mollywood to remember forever. There are many releases to hit the screens in the coming days and many of them are much awaited films and mollywood hoping for a great rise from ashes this year.
