Nivin Pauly starrer romantic comedy named Premam helmed by Alphonse Puthren is continuing with breaking records here and there. It had already broke a number of records such as highest grossing film in the opening week in Mollywood and fastest 20 crore collecting movie etc from mollywood. The flick has released in US last week and it also set a new record there as well by breaking the Drishyam record of the $70k gross in its opening weekend and Premam had made it better by collecting $97K in its opening weekend there.
Drishyam is the highest grossing film ever in Kerala, outside kerala market in all India level and also in the overseas market from Mollywood. In US also the highest grossing mollywood film is Drishyam. Not only in UK, Drishyam had become the best in UAE, UK and other overseas markets as well. It is a record seemed to very difficult to broke. Reports suggests that if Premam goes like this way there is a chance that it may overtake Drishyam in some places. Drishyam holds the unique record of running 100 days at UAE and it was unique in the sense that only Titanic is the only foreign film which had run 100 days at UAE which had made better by Drishyam crossing 100 days of theater run there.
In Great Britain as well Drishyam had made its mark becoming the highest grossing Malayalam movie ever and it also seems a very hard task to be overtaken. Drishyam Kerala Gross is close to 45 crore and from worldwide collections it is up to almost 66 crore rupees. As total revenue from remake rights and satellite rights the flick had made an unbelievable business of Rupees 75 crore or above. The second best in collection records from mollywood is Bangalore Days which had a total revenue around 35-40 crore and Premam till now had collected around 22-23 crors as per unofficial collection reports from various sources.
Malayalam film industry is going great guns from this last Vishu season with Blockbusters, mega hits and super hits like Premam, Oru Vadakkan Selfie, Bhaskar The Rascal, Ennum Eppozhum etc.
