Mammootty starrer Pullikkaran Staraa, directed by young film-maker Syam Dhar, is one among the 4 major Malayalam movies, which are in the theatres, right now. Pullikkaran Staraa, was off to a decent start at the box office and the film has been receiving mixed reviews. Anyhow, it seems like the family audiences are in favour of the movie and it could be seen from the box office collections of Pullikkaran Staraa.
The film has slowly been gaining pace at the Kochi multiplexes. According to a report by Forum Keralam, Pullikkaran Staraa has fetched 19.56 Lakhs from its 5 days of run at the Kochi multiplexes. There is a slight increase in the occupancy rate of the film, as well. Thiruvonam Day and the next day, were crucial ones for all the new releases. If the latest collection reports are to go by, Pullikkaran Staraa has fetched approximately 1.9 Crores altogether from 2 days (Monday & Tuesday).
According to the sources, the movie has ended up its first day of opening with the total amount of 1.50 crore in domestic. well, it could be an average collection if we focus on the fact that three other competitive movies were released on the same date. Mammootty starred Pullikkaran Staraa has managed to get a total collection of 5.02 crore in first four days of its opening.
Public demand and number of shows they both factors affect the earning of any movie, in Kochi movie has failed to get a fair number of shows so the total collection from last four days is below average(14 lakh). And in Kerela, the movie has managed to collect the total figure of 4.88 crores in first four day which is not as same as what the makers expected it to be but this could save the creation from being a flop.
