Loham, the Mohanlal starrer movie directed by Ranjith, hit the theatres yesterday (August 20th). According to latest reports from the trade analysts, Loham has collected 2.2 crores from the Kerala box office, on the first day of release.
When the outside Kerala collections are also considered, the movie has collected about 3.5 crores on its releasing day. The movie has been receiving mixed to positive reviews from the audience and critics.
As per the box office collection reports, Loham is doing fairly well at the box office and has already been declared as a hit. The movie is running in about 250 screens all over India, with 1000 shows per day.
Reportedly, some special screenings of Loham have been arranged at some important releasing centres of Kerala, due to the heavy rush of the audience. The movie is expected to be released in more cities by the next weekend.
The Onam season is already on the track with the release of Loham. But it is a fact that the movie failed to impress the audience as expected. Undoubtedly, it is a cold start for the Onam season.
Loham failed to make a mark due to the over expectations over the project. But, on the other hand, Loham is definitely a great relief for Mohanlal, who has been tasting consecutive failures since last two years.
