The last weekend (Independence Day and Ramzan - Aug 15 to 20) saw a
number of Malayalam films clash at the Box Office. As expected, it
Mr Marumakan (released on August 18) and Mammootty's
Thappana (released on August 19), which managed to rock
the Kerala Box Office. The two films took off well and had a decent
opening. While the film Friday opened to a lukewarm
response, Allu Arjun's Gajapokkiri did average business at
the Box Office.
Dileep's comedy Mr Marumakan was at the first spot as
within three days (Aug 18, 19 & 20). The film grossed
approximately Rs 2.90 crores from 72 centres. Mammootty's
Thappana which released in 80 screens on August 19 was
Thattathin Marayathu remained constant in the third
spot with Ustad Hotel at number four. Gajapokkiri is at
number five as far as Box Office collections are concerned.
