Premam, the Nivin Pauly starrer blockbuster, completed 222 days in Chennai. Interestingly, the second highest ever grosser of Malayalam cinema is still running successfully at Escape Cinemas, Chennai. It is undoubtedly a great achievement.
Team Premam celebrated the 222nd day recently, in Chennai, with the lead actor Nivin Pauly. The actor who was in the city for the shoot of actor Chiyaan Vikram's short film based on Chennai flood relief activities, attended the function with his crew members.
A Malayalam movie completing 222 days in one of the major theatres of Chennai is a great accomplishment, as even the star-studded Tamil films are struggling to make it till 200 days, in the city. Premam had completed 125 days in Kerala.
Premam, which is written and directed by Alphonse Puthren, is one of the most celebrated films of the recent times. When a major group of audiences opined that Premam is a path-breaking film, some others thrashed the movie, calling it over-rated.
However, Premam still remains as one of the most loved films in the history of Malayalam Cinema. The movie, which introduced 3 leading ladies to the industry, including Sai Pallavi, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameshwaran, is produced by Anwar Rasheed.
