1971 Beyond Borders, directed by Major Ravi and featuring Mohanlal in dual role was one of the most expected movies of the season. The initial reviews that the film received prove that the movie has failed to meet the expectations of the viewers.
The film had a big release on April 7, 2017, with it grabbing close to 190 screens in Kerala alone. But, the box office collections haven't been that impressive for 1971 Beyond Borders.
According to a latest report by a popular online portal, 1971 Beyond Borders has made a gross collection of 4.5 Crores from its 3 days of run. Well, the collection is poor, considering the fact that it is a superstar movie.
A Lacklustre Weekend
Reportedly, the film made a gross collection of 2.80 Crores on day 1. And if the latest box office collections are to be believed, 1971 Beyond Borders did manage to make just 1.7 Crores together on Saturday & Sunday, which is quite disappointing.
Kochi Multiplexes Collection
The film hasn't had a good outing in the Kochi multiplexes either. According to a collection report by Forum Keralam, the film managed to gross only 22.22 Lakhs from its 3 days with the occupancy rate coming down, with each passing day.
Occupancy Rate At Kochi Multiplexes
On the day of its release, the film made 9.95 Lakhs at an occupancy rate of 84.14%. On day 2, the occupancy rate decreased to 58 % and the movie fetched 6.79 Lakhs. On the third day, which was a Sunday, the occupancy rate was less than 50 %.

A Tough Competition From The Great Father & Take Off
1971 Beyond Borders is facing tough competitions from The Great Father and Take Off. Both the movies, which have received positive reviews all over are ruling the box office, at present.
A Big Budget Venture
Reportedly, 1971 Beyond Borders was made with a big budget. The present box office collection of the movie isn't impressive at all, and going at this rate, the film might end up as a big failure at the box office.
1971 Beyond Borders has been produced by Haneef Muhammed under the banner Red Rose Creation. The movie marks the comeback of the iconic character, Colonel Mahadevan.
The road ahead for 1971 Beyond Borders looks tough with new Malayalam movies also joining the race. Mammootty starrer Puthan Panam has already hit the theatres, whereas Nivin Pauly starrer Sakhavu will make it to the theatres on April 15, 2017.
