Mammootty- Prithviraj Pokkiri Raja still rules the roost at the number one position. Five weeks since its release the film has grossed a whopping Rs 16.10 Crore. In Ernakulam the distributors share from Kavitha has touched Rs 25 lakhs, while in Thiruvananthapuram it is hovering around Rs 22 lakhs from Dhanya and Remya.
Pokkiri Rajaís distributors share in 35 days from 85 releasing stations is approximately Rs 7.35 crore, which is fabulous. It means already producer Tommychin Mulagupadam who must have spent around Rs 5.5 Crore for the film including print and publicity , must be laughing all the way to the bank.
The big surprise is that Urvasi and Archana Kaviís family story directed by Jithu Joseph Mummy and Me, has picked up with the lady audiences and is in the number two position . The trade says the film made at a cost around Rs 2.25 Crore will be more profitable than a Mohanlal film for its distributors Max Lab!
At number three is Dileepís Pappi Appacha, which covered its cost from release stations and is a super hit. In the fourth position is Sathyan Anthikadís Katha Thudaranu an average grosser that may break even for its producers if you take into consideration the television rights of the film which went for a record Rs 1.85 Crore.
Two weeks after its world release Suriyaís Tamil action entertainer Singam released in Malabar area of the state and is said to be in an average grosser. The film which is at number five, would have been in a higher position if it was released simultaneously with Tamil Nadu
