Well, good times are ahead for the Malayalam film industry. Mammootty starrer The Great Father, which released in the last week has set some big records and at the same time, Mohanlal's 1971 Beyond Borders is gearing up to hit the theatres this week (April 7, 2017).
All eyes are on 1971 Beyond Borders, as the film is expected to continue the glorifying run of Mohanlal. Importantly, fans of both Mammootty and Mohanlal are eager to know whether the film would break the opening day record of The Great Father or not.
The Great Father Opening Day Collection Record
The Great Father has scripted a new opening day collection record by fetching 4.31 Crores. It broke the record of Mohanlal's other movie Pulimurugan. The fans of Mohanlal would definitely want the actor's upcoming movie to script a new record.
1971 Beyond Borders – Releasing Across 200 Screens
1971 Beyond Borders is all set to open big. Reportedly, the makers are planning to release the movies in as many as 200 screens in Kerala alone. In fact, The Great Father too, was released in above 200 screens, which gave the film a massive initial collection.
Fan Shows For 1971 Beyond Borders
Much like any other superstar movie, 1971 Beyond Borders is also expected to have fans shows across the State. There isn't a clear idea about the exact number of fan shows that the film would have.
Will 1971 Beyond The Borders Create A New Record?
To beat the record of The Great Father, the Mohanlal starrer might need above 950 shows/day. In fact, the hype and pre-publicity associated with 1971 Beyond Borders is comparatively lesser than what The Great Father had. And at the same time, the extremely good run of The Great Father might also hamper the chances of the Mohanlal starrer to create a new record.
Fans Show For The Great Father
Reportedly, Mammootty fans are planning to hold a special fans show on April 07, 2017, on the same day as that of the release of 1971 Beyond Borders. The Great Father fans show will be held in order to celebrate the humongous success of the movie.
Who Had Won The Earlier Battle?
Movies of both Mammootty and Mohanlal have previously released during the same season in October. Both Pulimurugan and Thoppil Joppan was released on the same day and it was the Mohanlal starrer who had won the battle.
1971 Beyond Borders, has been directed by Major Ravi. The big budget venture, bankrolled by Haneef Mohammed under the banner Red Rose creations has other actors like Allu Sirish and Arunoday Singh in important roles.
Well, the film would bring back the character Major Mahadevan, from the movies Keerthichakra, Kurukshetra and Kandahar. 1971 Beyond Borders will mark the fourth outing of the character.
Anyhow, the stage is set for a perfect battle between the movies of both the superstars. Let us wait and see to know who will win the final battle.
