Pulimurugan, the Mohanlal starrer has had a tremendous opening at the box office. The movie is receiving fantastic responses from all over and has already made sure that it will earn the blockbuster tag. Pulimurugan was released in about 214 screens (including the special shows and fan shows) in Kerala, thus emerging as the biggest ever release in the history of Malayalam movie industry.
The movie, which stars Mohanlal in the title role Murugan, is an out-and-out action thriller which will surely entertain the action movie lovers and Mohanlal fans. Pulimurugan is directed by Vysakh.
It is the first venture of scenarist Udaykrishna of Sibi K Thomas-Udaykrishna duo, as an independent writer. Popular stunt director Peter Hein has choreographed the highly-appreciated action sequences of Pulimurugan.
The main highlights are the daredevil stunt sequences by Peter Hein. Mohanlal has once again proved that he is a master in performing action scenes, and it was a real treat to watch him beating up baddies to the pulp. Interestingly, the actor has not availed the service of any dupe artists to do these scenes, and it clearly indicates his dedication towards his profession.
As expected, all the theaters in Kerala have witnessed 100% attendance. Trade experts believe that this film will break the initial box office collection records created by Oppam recently and in all probabilities, it will fetch more than Rs 4 crores by the end of the opening day.
The opening weekend collections will inevitably cross Rs 12 Crore making it the biggest opener ever in the history of Malayalam cinema.
