Mammootty's Mamangam has concluded the first week at the worldwide box office with good collection. The buzz on social media is that its business has crossed Rs 100 crore gross mark in eight days in the global market.
Having opened to superb response, the M Padmakumar-directed period movie made decent response in its opening weekend. Producer Venu Kunnappilly, who has shelled out Rs 50 crore on its production, claimed on his Facebook page that Mamangam collected Rs 60 crore at the worldwide box office in four days. But trade experts dubbed it as inflated numbers and it has not grossed not even half of it.
The Mammootty starrer witnessed a huge drop on Monday and its business continued to collapse on the following days. Venu Kunnappilly stated Mamangam has set a new record, by completing 30,000 shows in seven days, but he is yet reveal its first week collection. But the buzz in the trade circle is that its eight-day collection is yet to cross Rs 30 crore gross mark in the worldwide box office.
However, Mammootty's fans claim that Mamangam has crossed Rs 30 crore gross mark at the worldwide box office in its eight-day-extended first week.

Mamangam would clash with some big-ticket movies like Dabangg 3 in its second week, which will have Christmas celebrations.

The movie will have more than 515 shows in 150 theatres across Kerala.
