Jayasurya is gearing up for the release of his first movie of the year, Fukri, directed by veteran film-maker Siddique. The film, which is high on expectations will hit the theatres tomorrow (February 3, 2017).
It is after a break of 6 months that a Jayasurya movie is gracing the theatres. Earlier, Fukri was planned as a festival release and scheduled for the Christmas season, but the theatre strike pushed forward the release of the movie.
The actor definitely would have pinned up high hopes in this film, which marks his first association with director Siddique, who knows the real pulse of the audiences. Jayasurya is expected to deliver a blockbuster with this movie.
The actor's recent films have had a mixed outing at the box office. Here, we analyse the box office performances of Jayasurya's last 5 movies. Read on..
Pretham, which released in the month of August 2016, did give Jayasurya that much needed hit. The film, directed by Ranjith Sankar had the actor in the role of a mentalist named Don Bosco. Pretham had an impressive opening and minted more than 2.5 Crores in its first three days and the movie went on to make an approximate total collection of 15 Crores. The actor was much applauded for his work in the movie.
Verdict: Super Hit
IDI was a very crucial movie for Jayasurya. The movie marked the arrival of the actor to mass police officer roles. The film had to clash with Pretham during its release time and the opening day collection of the movie was a meagre 55 Lakhs. While Pretham impressed the audiences, IDI failed to make any mark of its own.
Much was expected from this movie, which had both Jayasurya and Kunchacko Boban in the lead roles. But, to the disappointment of the audiences, the film failed to live upto the expectations bestowed on it. The movie managed to gross 4.5 Crores within 1 week of its run but later, Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum fizzled out completely at the box office.
School Bus marked the second association of Jayasurya with Rosshan Andrrews-Bobby-Sanjay team. The actor did get to play an author backed role, which he did to perfection. But, the box office performance of the movie wasn't that impressive.
Su..Su..Sudhi Valmeekam had Jayasurya in full-form. The film, directed by Ranjith Sankar explored the actor in Jayasurya, to perfection. The film had a decent outing at the box office and touched the 10-Crore mark and thus earning a hit tag.
Well, as mentioned above his previous movie Pretham was a big success at the box office. But, the year 2016, was not that an impressive one for the actor, with 3 of his movies not making any impact at the box office.
Fukri is also one of the most expensive movies of Jayasurya. If the movie garners some positive reviews, the movie is sure to earn some huge money at the box office. And Jayasurya would definitely like to start off the year 2017 with a big hit.
