Mammootty's much-hyped movie Mamangam has made superb collection at the worldwide box office in the first weekend, with its total business surpassing Rs 50 crore gross mark in the global market in four days.
Riding on the huge hype and promotion, the M Padmakumar-directed period action film released in a record number of screens across the globe on Thursday and registered superb response. Mamangam collected Rs 23.70 crore gross at the worldwide box office on its first day according to its producers. The movie not only became the biggest opener for Mammookka but also the third biggest Mollywood opener of all time.
Mamangam was almost successful in meeting the viewers' expectations generated by its promos before its release. But it garnered mixed responses due to slow-paced narration and a few other factors.

However, Mamangam went on to show a further drop on Saturday. When compared to its Friday business, the movie has shown nearly 27 percent dip its collection on its third day.
