Sarkar, the big movie of the month, is continuing its decent run in the theatres across Tamil Nadu. In Kerala, which is the strong fort of Vijay and where the movies of the star have a huge demand, Sarkar had met with a stellar reception, much in line of the expectations of the audiences. Sarkar was rightly expected to shatter some big records and emerge as the top grosser of Thalapathy Vijay so far in Kerala. How well has Sarkar fared in Kerala? Has it turned out to be a profitable venture out there? Read on to know more about the same here.
Sarkar had opened to mixed reviews in the theatres across Kerala. The audiences were slightly disappointed of the fact that the commercial aspects in the movies were lesser in comparison with his previous release Mersal, which was a blockbuster.
Reduction In The Number Of Shows
While Sarkar has entered the second week of its run in the theatres across Kerala, the film has faced a huge reduction in the number of shows at the Kochi multiplexes. On its second week, the film has just 4 shows/day at the Kochi multiplexes, which has indeed stunned the audiences.
The Collections At The Kochi Multiplexes
The huge reduction in the number of shows is sure to affect the collections of the movie at Kochi multiplexes, which is indeed one of the prominent centres in Kerala. At the Kochi multiplexes, the film had collected 47 Lakhs from the 7 days of its run. The movie had faced a huge drop in the collections in the past few days.

Will It Overtake Mersal?
With the reduction in a number of the shows, it is almost sure that Sarkar won't go on to become the top grosser of Thalapathy Vijay at the Kochi multiplexes and chances are extremely less to break the record of Mersal.
According to a report by Valai Pechu, the Kerala distribution rights of Sarkar were sold at 7.5 Crores. Report also suggests that Sarkar might end its run in Kerala and face a loss of approximately 2 Crores.
