Kabali opened to mixed reviews in Kerala, but it has not affected the collections of the film across the theatres in Kerala. The film has gone on to set many box office collection records.
Well, the records set by Kabali, might seem hard to be
broken but there are certain upcoming Malayalam movies, which have
the potential to rewrite those records.
Here we list 5 upcoming Malayalam films which are capable of
breaking Kabali's records at the Kerala box office.
Puli Murugan is all set to be the biggest ever release of
Malayalam cinema. Even though there isn't a clear idea about the
number of screens, the film is expected to open in maximum number
of centres in Kerala. If that is the case, the film could set the
cash registers ringing and has enormous potential to break the
records set by Kabali.
Karnan, might take time to get to the theatres but the
wait would be definitely fruitful as it is one of the biggest
Malayalam films in the making. The film is expected to have actors
from various film industries and when it releases in Kerala, a
gargantuan opening is guaranteed.
This is another big budget movie, which is in its initial stages
of planning. This untitled film would be another film based on
mythological character Karnan. Mammootty is expected to play the
lead role in this film,which would be directed by Madhupal. Being a
big budget movie, it has the capability to create new records at
the box office.
Amal Neerad-Dulquer Salmaan Film
Dulquer Salmaan is the king of Mollywood, while opening
collections are considered. Moreover, this film is being made by
Amal Neerad, whose films have registered many opening day
collection records in the past. Their upcoming film is said to be a
family entertainer and the film definitely has the ability to set
some collection records.
Oozham might seem to be a surprise inclusion in to this list.
But, it has to be noted that the film marks the comeback of Jeethu
Joseph-Prithviraj pair after the film Memories and more
importantly, the film falls in to the genre of revenge drama. If
positive reviews pour in, Oozham could definitely fetch gold and
break many of the records set by Kabali at the Kerala box
Big budget Films like Puli Murugan, Karnan etc. are the
films which have more chances of breaking the records set by
Kabali. Other films, if properly marketed and promoted can get
close to rewriting the records.
Rajinikanth starrer Kabali released in 306 theatres
across the state and records were sure to be broken, with an
extremely good advance booking for the film.
The film reportedly fetched 4.27 Crores on it opening day and it
eclipsed the records set by Tamil movie I. The Malayalam
film with highest opening day collection is Mammootty starrer
Kasaba, which fetched 2.48 Crores on its opening
Kabali has also turned out to be the fastest film to
gross 10 Crores at the Kerala box office. The film achieved this
feat in just 3 days.
Now, let us wait and see which Malayalam film would eclipse these records set by Kabali at the Kerala box office.
