Some records held by Pulimurugan; Will The Great Father be able to break them?
Over the past few months, especially after the release of Pulimurugan, trade experts from Mollywood have also started to analyse opening day collections, show counts and overall box office figures quite seriously. It clearly shows the commercial growth of the industry.
Mammootty’s latest release The Great Father, as expected, has set the box office on fire. The movie was registered a new record for opening day collections by raking in a whopping Rs 4,31,46,345 rupees on the opening day.
The record for highest first day grosser in Kerala was previously held by superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali (Rs 4.20 crores) followed by Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan with 4.05 crores.
The Mohanlal starrer owns almost all the box office records in Mollywood. Here we look at some of these records.
Pulimurugan is the highest single day grosser in Kerala. On the third day of it’s release, the movie minted Rs 4.83 crores from theatres across Kerala.
Pulimurugan grossed more than 25 crores within a week of it’s release.The first weekend collection itself was a whopping Rs 13 crores. It is also the fastest Malayalam movie to reach the 50 and 100 crore marks.
The movie is still being screened in some theatres in the State and is all set to achieve a remarkable 200 days theatrical run in Kerala. Till date, Pulimurugan has had over 43,000 shows which is also the most for a Malayalam movie.
With the Vishu season fast approaching and some other biggies set for release, The Great Father has a huge task before it to eclipse all these Pulimurugan records.
