Blockbuster Raja: Madhura Raja fast approaches its 100th day of theatrical run
It has been exactly 90 days since the release of Mammootty starrer ‘Madhura Raja’. The movie which hit screens during the Vishu season in April is still being screened in few centres across the state. It has already emerged as the highest grosser in Mammootty’s three-decade long career and his first film to enter the prestigious 100 crore club. This is quite a remarkable achievement considering the fact that the movie had to face stiff competition from several films, including other language biggies.
‘Madhura Raja’ is directed by Vysakh and scripted by Udhayakrishna. Prior to its release itself, trade analysts and industry insiders had pinned huge hopes on the movie. Mammootty’s return as the naughty don Raja, Peter Hein’s stunts and the reunion of ‘Pulimurugan’ team were the biggest factors for the hype. Luckily, the movie to lived up to the expectations.
Along with Mammootty, ‘Madhura Raja’ also had Anusree, Jai, Mahima Nambiar, Anna Reshma, Shamna Kasim and Jagapathi Babu in crucial roles. Nelson Ipe has produced the movie.
