Dulquer Salmaan's latest Malayalam movie "Kammatipaadam" and Disney's animated movie "The Jungle Book" have been performing well at the Kerala box office.
Rajeev Ravi's "Kammatipaadam," released on May 20, has been garnering good response from the audience, who have been lauding the young star Dulquer Salmaan as well as his co-actors Manikandan and Vinayakan for their versatility. Sources close to the movies told International Business Times, India, that "Kammatipaadam," narrated against the backdrop of a slum in Kochi, has collected a gross amount of nearly Rs. 12 crore within 12 days of its release in the country.
"The Jungle Book," released in Kerala by Global United Media on April 8, opened to tremendous response from movie-goers. Despite being a movie made for children, it was viewed mostly by adults born in the 1990s. Upon completing 77 days of its theatrical run in Kerala, the movie, based on the fictional character Mowgli, is said to have earned approximately Rs. 12 crore. It became the first English movie to cross Rs. 1-crore mark in multiplexes in Kochi alone within 10 days of its release.
Meanwhile, the collection of Allu Arjun's "Yodhavu," which is the Malayalam-dubbed film of the actor's blockbuster "Sarrainodu," is also rocking the box office in Kerala. The Boyapati Srinu-directed film has earned a gross amount of more than Rs. 2.3 crore within four days of its release in the state.
