Mohanlal's highly anticipated Major Ravi directed Kandahar which released on December 16, has bombed at the Kerala box-office
The film which opened in Kerala in 125 screens was reduced to 80 odd on day two of its release!
What went wrong with the film which cost around Rs 5.5Crore to make and market?
Says a theatre owner screening the film: "The content of Kandahar is largely responsible for its failure, especially the climax. It failed even to take an opening, by evening on the day of its release collections had nosedived. Even die hard fans of Mohanlal have not been able to digest the film."
In a small town in Travancore area where Mohanlal is the biggest star, there were 146 people on Monday evening show at a theatre which can accommodate 800 audiences. At many centers it has touched hold over, and may be removed after a week. No Mohanlal film in recent times has opened so badly
