Mohanlal is definitely having a good time. His most recently released Malayalam film Oppam, is having a glorious run at the box office, proving the actor's crowd-pulling capacity, once again.
Reportedly, the film has grossed 30 Crores at the Kerala box
office alone, making the film the fastest to reach this mark,
beating the record set by Premam.
Now, two of the actor's movies, with him as the sole main lead,
have went on to gross 30 Crores and more in Kerala. And he is the
only Malayalam actor, who has this achievement under his
sleeves(wihout considering the multi-starrers)
Take a look at Malayalam actors who have movies that have
crossed the 30-Crore mark from Kerala alone.
Well, when Mohanlal came with Drishyam, he made it a
point to eclipse all the box office records, that existed back
then. The film went on to collect 42 Crores from Kerala alone. Now,
Oppam has crossed the 30-Crore mark and he is the only
actor with two movies in this league.
Ennu Ninte Moideen, which released in the year 2015
crossed the 30-Crore mark easily. The film was one of the biggest
hits of that year and is the biggest hit in the career of
Nivin Pauly starrer Premam did go on to cross the
30-Crore mark within 30 days of its release. The film had a grand
run at the box office and was almost close to breaking
Drishyam's lifetime collection record.
Dileep has had many hits to his credit but the 30-Crore mark was
eluding him. But, with Two Countries, he achieved that
feat as well. The film, which released in the year of 2015 is the
biggest hit of the actor's career.
It has to be noted that multi-starrers have not been considered
in this above list. Bangalore Days, which had Dulquer
Salmaan, Nivin Pauly, Fahadh Faasil and Nazriya Nazim in the lead
roles is another movie that crossed the 30-Crore mark at the Kerala
The coming week would witness the release of Mohanlal starrer Puli Murugan and Mammootty starrer Thoppil Joppan. Both the films have the potential to enter this elite club. Let us wait and watch!
