Pulimurugan fever has gripped the entire state of Kerala. No other recent Malayalam film has witnessed such a thunderous response at the box office. Even after 1 week of its release, the film continues to attract crowds in large numbers.
Definitely, the movie was one of the most waited ones of this year, and the best part is in the fact that the film met the expectations of the viewers and is on the way to become the biggest blockbuster of Malayalam film industry.
Here, we are listing some of the factors, which made Pulimurugan hugely popular among the masses..
Mohanlal, Mohanlal And Mohanlal!
Without a second thought, we can say that the biggest plus of the movie is Mohanlal. He has put in his cent percent for the movie, be it for the action sequences or the mass scenes. In Pulimurugan, the actor is in full form and energy and that has made all of his fans happy.
Stunts Choreographed By Peter Hein
You can't take away the credit from this man. If all of you were awestruck after seeing the stunt sequences of this film, you really have to thank Peter Hein for that. Because, for the first time ever, Malayalam cinema got to witness some action sequences of international standards.
The Story Premise
In fact, Pulimurugan had a story, which is similar to any formula based superstar movies. But, what worked pretty well for the movie is the premises on which the story was set. The background of forests and the lives of people over there added freshness to the movie.
Vysakh's Brilliant Packaging
Vysakh, is a man, who perfectly knows how to make a mass entertainer. The story or the script wasn't anything new, but the director smartly packaged the movie, understanding the pulse of the normal audiences. The director has used the star power of Mohanlal to full effect, and that surely worked in favour of the movie.
Good Pre-publicity And Marketing
The makers of Pulimurugan did give out a clear picture about the film. They made it a point to convey that the film would be in the lines of a pure entertainer. So, the audiences got a clear picture about what to expect from the film.
Background Score By Gopi Sunder
Well, when you leave the theatres after watching the movie, apart from Mohanlal and the breathtaking stunts, what comes along with you is the scintillating BGM by Gopi Sunder. The theme song Muruga Muruga.. is a perfect match for a mass entertainer like Pulimurugan.
Pulimurugan, which hit the theatres on October 7, 2016, was released in 325 theatres across India. In Kerala alone, the film released in 165 screens and made a huge opening on Day 1.
The film has already entered the 20-Crore club and that too, within 4 days of its run. Certain reports are also doing the rounds that the film has crossed the 25-Crore mark.
Reportedly, the makers are also planning to dub the film to various languages like Chinese, English, Hindi etc. Well, the film is going places and it has to be said that the hard work of the entire team has paid off.
