Pulimurugan, the action thriller which stars Mohanlal in the title role, has already emerged as one of the biggest hits of Mollywood. Now, the highly celebrated movie has scripted yet another record.
Reportedly, Pulimurugan has surpassed the lifetime Kerala collection of Mohanlal's Drishyam, thus becoming the highest grosser of Kerala box office. The movie surpassed Drishyam's 190 days collections, in just 17 days.
Read the major milestones crossed by Pulimurugan, here....
Initial Collection Record
Pulimurugan broke the initial collection record of Kasaba, thus becoming the Malayalam movie with the highest initial collection. The movie made a gross collection of about 4.5 Crores on its release day.
The movie crossed the prestigious 10-Crore mark within the first weekend of its release. Pulimurugan made a total gross collection of 12.91 Crores within the first weekend, thus becoming the fastest Malayalam movie to cross 10-Crore mark.
Pulimurugan stunned the industry, by crossing the 20-Crore mark just within the first 5 days. The movie made about 21 Crores gross collection, within the first 5 days of its release.
The Mohanlal starrer became the fastest Mollywood film to cross the 25-Crore mark, by collecting about 27 Crores within the first 7 days of its release.
The action thriller made more than 40 Crores gross collection with the first 15 days of its release, thus scripting a new record. Reportedly, the movie managed to cross 50-Crore mark at the all India box office, within the first 2 weeks.
Kochi Multiplex Record
Pulimurugan set another record, by completing 350 houseful shows in Kochi multiplex screens alone. It has also emerged as the highest grossing film of Kochi multiplex screens.
Thus, it has been confirmed that Pulimurugan will surely become the highest ever grosser of Malayalam movie industry. The remarkable success of the movie assures that it will be the first 100-Crore film of Mollywood.
If the reports are to be true, Pulimurugan has already made 60 Crores gross collection, when the all India box office has been considered. The team is yet to reveal the actual outside Kerala and foreign box office collections.
Pulimurugan's phenomenal theatrical run is undoubtedly a great motivation for the film-makers and production banners, to try a hand in big budget films. It will also give courage to all the leading Malayalam actors, to associate with big films.
However, the consecutive box office successes paved way for the grand comeback of Mohanlal into the success track, after a gap. The actor has also emerged as the first Mollywood actor to enter the 200-Crore club, with his last 3 releases.
