Kasaba, the Mammootty starring police story which released on July 7, has already emerged as a blockbuster. When it completes the first month of release Kasaba is still going strong at the box office.
From the first 30 days of its theatrical run, the Nithin Renji Panicker movie has made a total gross collection of 14.4 Crores. It is the collection solely made from the Kerala box office.
The release of Rajinikanth's Kabali has badly affected the performance of Kasaba, as it was removed from several major theatres. But, the movie has been brought back to major theatres from last week.
Kasaba succeeded in breaking the record of Kali, by collecting 2.48 Crores on its release day. The movie also broke the first-weekend collection record of Loham, by collecting 7.36 Crores in just 4 days.
The movie entered the 10 Crore club just within the 8 days of release by making a gross collection of 10.03 Crores from the Kerala box office. On the 9th day, the collection was raised to 10.44 Crores.
The outside Kerala and outside India box office collections of Kasaba are yet to be calculated. The movie, which had a wide release in GCC countries last week, has succeeded in impressing the Gulf audiences.
