Among the Eid 2016 releases, Salman Khan's "Sultan" and Mammootty's "Kasaba" are the films that have been doing roaring business in Kerala. The big-budget movies have been earning well from the multiplexes in Kochi alone.
According to trade analysts, the five-day collection of "Sultan" from the multiplexes in the city is said to be more than Rs. 45 lakh, followed by "Kasaba," which has earned approximately Rs. 37 lakh within four days of its release in Kochi.
Meanwhile, "Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum," the comedy romantic entertainer starring Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya and Amala Paul, is believed to have collected Rs. 23 lakh in five days and Asif Ali-Biju Menon's "Anuraga Karikkin Vellam," which had 95 percent theatre occupancy in Kochi multiplexes, is said to have made a collection of Rs. 20 lakh within four days.
The Mammootty-starrer has become the highest opening day grosser in Kerala by raking in Rs. 2.43 crore on the first day, breaking the existing record of Dulquer Salmaan's "Kali." The total three-day gross collection of the cop movie directed by debutant Nithin Renji Panicker is now estimated to have crossed Rs. 5.56 crore. Read Kasaba IBTimes Review.
