Director Rosshan Andrrews' Malayalam movie How Old Are You, which marks the comeback of actress Manju Warrier to silver screen after 14 years, has taken the Kerala Box Office by storm. Released in theatres on May 17, the movie, which has been made with a medium budget, has turned out to be one of the big money spinners of the year 2014. The makers of the movie are now on cloud nine.
Bobby, who has co-written the script with Sanjay for How Old Are You, gushed his excitement over the earth-shattering response for the film. "Just one word. overwhelming. We are bombarded with calls, mostly from the public. They are all happy that we have offered the best platform and role for the actress to make a comeback," the Bangalore Mirror quotes the popular scriptwriter as saying.
Especially, How Old Are You has received very good response from the family audience. Bobby added, "Some of them even thanked us for having brought Manju back to the limelight. The feedback from the family audience - women and children - has been phenomenal. Most of the Malayalam directors, including Lenin Rajendran, have called us and perhaps the biggest congratulatory message came from none other than Kamal Haasan."
Before its release, How Old Are You had been creating ripples in the media and one big reason for it was Manju Warrier's comeback to acting. But since it was releasing with Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal's Mr Fraud, many in Mollywood were bit skeptic about the big opening and prospects of the film. However, the movie is successful in bringing a smile on the face of its makers, who are yet to reveal the details about its collection at the Box Office.
