Janatha Garage Malayalam teaser beats Kasaba’s views, but not the record !
Mohanlal, Jr NTR starrer Janatha Garage’s teaser was released 3 days back to a stupendous reception. The movie had both Malayalam and Telugu version teaser releases. Janatha Garage is a Telugu movie releasing in Malayalam only as a dubbed version. The Telugu teaser has already created records in the Tollywood industry garnering around 30 lakh views in less than 60 hours of its release. Similarly the Malayalam version teaser has also been well received with above 10 lakh views.
Incidentally Kasaba is believed to hold the record for most teaser views for a Malayalam cinema and for the fastest to hit 10 lakh views. A section of fans have been arguing in social media over the exact numbers and the question of which movie holds the records prevail.
The truth is Kasaba still holds these records because Janatha Garage is not a Malayalam movie and is only a dubbed version of the original Telugu movie. So Janatha Garage cannot be considered while taking into account the records in Malayalam cinema.
So Kasaba teaser still holds the record for the fastest to 10 lakh views and also the most viewed teaser. Kasaba hit the 10 lakh mark in 99 hours of its release. The Mammootty starrer was released this Thursday as an Eid release. The movie released to a very big opening in the box office setting a new record for the first day collections in Malayalam cinema.
Janatha Garaage also stars Rahman, Samantha, Nithya Menen in prominent roles. Malayalam’s own young star Unni Mukundan is reportedly playing the villain role in this movie directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kortala Siva. Rockstar Devu Sri Prasad is the music director for this flick scheduled to release on August 12th.
