Oppam, which released on September 8, 2016 is continuing its golden run and fetching gold at the Kerala box office. The film could well be termed as the comeback of veteran director Priyadarshan.
The film has completed 20 days of run and is still going strong in majority of the centres. Oppam, after its release, has broken many box office collection records. Take a look at some of the records eclipsed by this Mohanlal starrer.
Biggest Hit Of 2016
The film has been declared as the biggest hit of this year, so far. The film collected close to 24 Crores in 15 days and broke the collection record of Nivin Pauly starrer Jacobinte Swargarajyam.
Fastest To Cross 10-Crore Mark
Oppam became the fastest movie to cross 10-Crore mark at the Kerala box office. The film crossed 10-Crore mark just within 6 days and thus eliminating the record held by Premam, which took 7 days to cross 10 Crores.
Fastest To Cross 20-Crore Mark
Oppam went on to break another record held by Premam. The film is now the fastest to cross 20-Crore mark, by reaching the figures just in 11 days. It took 14 days for Premam to reach the 20-Crore mark.
Maximum Collection In First Week
Oppam went on to collect 12.6 Crores in its first week of run. This is now a new record and previously it was held by Premam, which collected 10 Crores in its opening week.
A New Record In Trivandrum City
Oppam did set a new record in centres in Trivandrum by becoming the highest first week grosser in the city. Reportedly, the film has crossed 50-Lakh mark from Aries SL Plex theatre alone, and thus breaking the record held by Charlie.
Released In Maximum Theatres In Europe
The film has set a new record in the number of releasing stations as well. Reportedly, Oppam got released in 119 centres in various countries in Europe, on September 23, 2016.
Meanwhile, the film went on to become one among the 6 biggest hits in the history of Malayalam cinema. We need to wait to know whether the film would break the lifetime collection records of Drishyam, to become an industry hit.
Oppam would be having a smooth run this week also, since no big releases have been chartered for this week. Next big release would be Mohanlal starrer Puli Murugan, which is set to hit the theatres on October 7, 2016.
Apart from Puli Murugan, Mammootty starrer Thoppil Joppan is also expected to hit the theatres during the Pooja season.
