Ranjith’s Loham, with Mohanlal playing the hero, claims to have managed Rs. 2.19 crores gross collection at the box office on its first day. This is more than the Rs. 2.16 crore first day collection recorded by Rosshan Andrrews’ Cassanovva, suggests some reports.
Loham, produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Ashirvad Cinemas, released in around 140 screens, with almost 1000 shows.
The Vikram starrer I is estimated to have the greatest first day collection in Kerala. The Tamil magnum opus collected Rs. 3 crores gross on the first day.
Loham has opened to mixed reviews but the wide release and the one-week breather before the rest of the pack comes for the Onam season could help the film for sure.
