Pulimurugan, which released on October 7, 2016, has completed its 50 days of run. The film has had a phenomenal outing so far, with the movie setting some new records at the box office.
Now, the movie has achieved a rare feat, something which no other Malayalam movie has had in the past. Reportedly, the film has completed 50 days of run in over 100 screens in Kerala, making it the first Malayalam movie to do so.
Pulimurugan, did have a wide release sd the movie was released in over 250 screens. Despite having such a big release, the movie still holds on to these many centres, which is quite rare nowadays.
Earlier, Mohanlal starrer Drishyam did complete 50 days of run in about 75 screens in Kerala. Now, Pulimurugan has eclipsed that record, as well. Even the new movies like Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan, Dear Zindagi etc., have not affected the rock solid run of Pulimurugan.
Going at this rate, the movie is expected to complete 100 days of run in good number of theatres. The film is expected to have a smooth run till the Christmas season. We have to wait and see whether the movie can manage to hold on the screens, even after the Christmas season.
