Mollywood is usually not popular for big budget films like Baahubali or something like Tamil big budget films. Because Mollywood’s market is a very limited one and it is comparatively a very small industry. We even has limitations in telling certain subjects in films which can increase the budget to a level which we can’t afford. But Mollywood has its own share of big budget films as well when we consider a scale of normal budget films made here.
If we say simply anything above 10 crore or even around that 8-10 crore mark is considered as a big budget film here as it needs almost above 20 crore collection from the theaters to make some profit for such films excluding its multiple rights. With satellite rights and other rights such as all India distribution rights, overseas rights, audio rights, video rights, remake rights etc film can actually earn profit other than from theater collection alone.
An interesting fact is that the highest grossing films of Mollywood is still two medium budget films and that are Drishyam which had a business of 75 crores when it only had a budget of 4.5 crore and then comes Premam which had done almost 60 crores business in total with almost 4-5 crore budget. So we are presenting you some upcoming big budget films in Mollywood which can set the money bells ringing at Box Office…
