Mass Action Entertainers Are Always In Demand
Mass action entertainers haven't been fetching the desired results, of late. With Pulimurugan, the industry has witnessed the comeback of such entertainers, which would bring in huge crowds to the theatres, a phenomenon that the industry witnessed during the days of films like Narasimham. The success of the film shows that movies of this genre are always in demand.
Big Budget Movies Could Reap Profit Too
Pulimurugan, was made under a budget of 26 Crores. Many thought that the film won't be able to reap profits. But, contrary to the views, the film emerged to be a massive box office success. The huge success of the film has hence opened the doors for more and more big budget movies in Malayalam.
Marketing Plays A Crucial Role In The Success Of A Movie
In fact, the marketing of the film did play a huge role in the success of the film. The team had a proper strategy and plan, which worked out pretty well.In fact, the success of the film has shown how such strategies are important for big budget films. The movie has laid a new path and probably the upcoming big films would follow the same path.
Packaging Is What That Matters
Pulimurugan, didn't have a very different story to narrate. But, what made the movie special is the interesting packaging by Vysakh. The film also had certain tweaks in the script, which worked out pretty well. The success has underlined the fact that packaging of a movie is what matters the most.
Quality Action Scenes Do Make A Difference
Before Pulimurugan, there were only very few Malayalam films which had given due importance to quality action sequences. The success of Pulimurugan definitely shows how important quality stunts are for a film. In fact, the action sequences of the film received praises, even comparing them to those of Hollywood movies.
Never Underestimate The Star Power Of Mohanlal
Well, before the release of Pulimurugan, a few section of audiences were in doubt regarding the star power of Mohanlal. The superstar of Mollywood silenced them all with this movie, which has now almost all the box office records under its sleeve. And the moral is 'never underestimate the star power of Mohanlal'.
Pulimurugan, directed by Vysakh, had its script written by Udaykrishna. The film has completed 20 days of run so far, and is still going strong in majority of centres in Kerala. The industry hasn't witnessed such a big hit in the recent times.
Reportedly, the film has crossed the 50-Crore mark at the world wide box office. Trade analysts predict that the movie might cross the 100-Crore mark in 35 days of time.
Going at this rate, the film might surely end up to be the first Malayalam movie to reach the magical figures. If that happens, it surely would be a joyous time for Mollywood, as the industry has been waiting for such a movie since a long time.
