The Mohanlal starrer Villain has opened to mixed reviews but some reports suggest that the film received a whopping 4.91 crores(!!) on its first day of release in Kerala. But trade analysts says that this is a highly exaggerated figure and is not true.
This figure, those who are spreading it, claim is a new collection record for a Malayalam film. But there are no official confirmations regarding these figures and already this has been questioned by many.
It has become a routine in Malayalam to come up with inflated figures, after the release of superstar movies.
Villain, directed by Unnikrishnan B, has been presented as an emotional thriller. Manju Warrier plays Mohanlal’s wife. Tamil stars Vishal and Hansika include the main cast.
Even amidst all the criticisms all the reviews have unanimously hailed Mohanlal’s performance in Villain.
