Box office reports
In the last 75 days, nearly 20 Malayalam films were released, out of
which the big winners are Puthiya Mugham and Ivar
Vivahitharayal. The investment and return on these two films have
made them profitable for all concerned.
Mammootty and Mohanlal releases were very average and may not even
cover their cost. The good news as far as Malayalam cinema is
concerned is that the audiences are finally acknowledging the presence
of younger stars like Prithviraj and Jayasurya.
Look at the way the breezy entertainer Lal's To Harihar Nagar
is doing in smaller stations, it proves that good content will always
be lapped up. The bad news is that M & M seems to be on the decline as
their films are not able to get that all important opening, which was
earlier their trump card.
Here is a list of the top five at the KBO in the last 75 days
