Box office reports
The Kerala Box Office has come alive with the mega hit Pazhassi Raja, which released on October 16 in 125 screens across the state, and is number one on KBO.

Pazhassi Raja has had a record opening and is touted to be the biggest hit ever in the history of Malayalam film. The film has also been given a 50 per cent reduction in entertainment tax, which is sure to help the makers.

Pazhassi Raja grossed Rs 82 lakhs on day one, Rs 98 lakhs on day two, and Rs 92 lakhs on day three, taking the total Diwali weekend gross to Rs 2.72 crore. It is the highest ever opening recorded for a film in Kerala. And the film has been doing very well on Monday and Tuesday in all centres.

At number two is the Diwali Tamil film Aadhavan featuring Suriya and Nayanthara. The film, which released in huge screens like Ernakulam Kavitha and Thiruvananthapuram Anjali, has taken a 100 per cent opening in these two key cities on Saturday and Sunday.

The remaining films, which had released earlier, have started dropping down the charts, while some of them have stopped their screening at main centres. Still, Pritviraj’s Robinhood is at number three. The film, which took a bumper opening, has crashed subsequently.

At number four is Sooraj Venjaranmoodu’s Duplicate made at a cost of Rs 1.25 crore and is a hit. In fifth position is Mammootty’s Loud Speaker, which is a loser.
