Sakhavu, the most recent release of Nivin Pauly, did have a solid opening at the box office. The film, which was released on the next day after Vishu opened to decent reviews from the audiences.
In fact, Sakhavu registered Nivin Pauly's best day 1 opening at the box office and fetched above 2.4 Crores on its release day. The film's performance in Kochi multiplexes, the strong fort of Nivin Pauly, was also phenomenal in the initial days.
Reportedly, Sakhavu collected above 30 Lakhs from its 3 days of run in Kochi multiplexes. But later, there was a considerable drop in the collections.
According to a latest report by Forum Keralam, Sakhavu has managed to gross approximately 75 Lakhs from its 12 days of run at Kochi multiplexes.
Now it has to be seen whether the film will cross the 1-Crore mark at the Kochi multiplexes. Sakhavu has good chances to cross the coveted mark but the upcoming big releases like Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and Comrade In America - CIA would definitely pose a big challenge in front of the movie.
