Director Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Malayalam film “Malaikottai Vaaliban,” featuring the acclaimed Mohanlal, experienced a significant downturn at the box office on its fifth day, marking nearly a 90% decrease from its promising opening day.
Despite a robust start on Thursday, the film has witnessed a consistent decline in collections, with each passing day failing to match the preceding one. The latest setback occurred on the film’s first Monday in theaters, where it recorded an India nett collection of approximately Rs 65 lakh, a substantial drop from its opening day earnings.
According to early estimates by industry tracker Sacnilk, the film’s total nett collection now stands at Rs 11.45 crore, with its worldwide gross reaching Rs 21.75 crore. This stark contrast to the impressive Rs 5.65 crore earned on its debut indicates the challenging trajectory “Malaikottai Vaaliban” is facing at the box office.
The film’s struggle to maintain momentum reflects the intricacies of the current cinematic landscape, where initial anticipation does not always translate into sustained success. As the box office journey unfolds, the fate of “Malaikottai Vaaliban” continues to be closely observed by industry enthusiasts and fans alike.
