Mammootty, is one such actor, who silences his critics with his movies. Whenever he was criticised for not giving box office hits, he came back strongly with some big hits.
This year, so far, has been a good one for Mammootty, with Kasaba turning out to be a hit. Here, we list 5 biggest hits of Mammootty from the last 5 years. Take a look.
Bhaskar The Rascal (2015)
Bhaskar The Rascal came in when Mammootty was in search of a big hit. The film directed by Siddique, attracted the family audiences and went on to become a big hit. The film, reportedly, made a gross collection of 25 Crores worldwide.
Pathemari, directed by Salim Ahmed was one of the most acclaimed movies of 2015. The film had Mammootty in the role of an expatriate. The film had a good run at the box office and did make a gross collection of approximately 15 Crores.
Kasaba, which released this year, did create a box office record by breaking the opening day collection record of Kali. The film received mixed reviews but still managed to cross approximately 15 crores from Kerala theatres alone.
Rajadhiraja, directed by Ajay Vasudev was a mass entertainer, which had Mammootty in full form. According to reports, the film almost made it to the 10-Crore mark and was declared a success.
Immanuel, which released in the year 2013, was one of the genuine hits given by Mammootty, after a break. The film, directed by Lal Jose did have a decent run at the box office and made a gross collection of approximately 8 crores, from Kerala alone.
