Puli Murugan, the highly anticipated Mohanlal movie is finally hitting the screens on October 7. As per the latest updates, the movie will not have a massive release in Kerala as expected. Earlier, the team was planning to release Puli Murugan in about 200 screens in Kerala. But, according to the reports, the team changed the decision considering the excellent box office performance of Oppam, Mohanlal’s recent release.
It is obvious that Oppam will lose its footing at the box office if Puli Murugan is released in over 200 screens. The theatre owners might be forced to lessen the number of Oppam shows, due to the unavailability of screens. Puli Murugan will only release in 160 screens in Kerala, but the movie will hit about 165 screens outside Kerala. The crew is planning to release the movie in more screens, only after analysing the first week collections.
