Malayalam Movie ‘Captain’ Total Box Office Collection
Based on the life of Indian football player VP Sathyan, latest Malayalam movie ‘Captain’ received good response from the audiences in initial week of release. Featuring megastar Jayasurya in the main lead, the newly released Malayalam language film recorded a total business of Rs 5.02 crore at Kerala Box Office. The biographical cinema successfully crossed Rs 5 crore mark at the box office in the first week.
Directed by renowned Indian filmmaker Prajesh Sen, the sports drama film witnessed average occupancy on first day of its release in the cinema halls situated in Kerala and earned Rs 0.87 crore box office collection on the opening day. The Malayalam language movie continued to receive good response from the moviegoers in first weekend and made a total collection of Rs 2.45 crore at the Kerala Box Office in three days.
In week days, the south Indian movie reported gradual decline in the public response and earned a total amount of Rs 3.81 crore in first week. After crossing Rs 3.5 crore mark at the box office in seven days, the Malayalam film witnessed little growth in the theatre occupancy in second weekend. As the performance of lead actor impressed a major chunk of audience in the opening week, the movie continued to witness steady theatre occupancy in 2nd weekend.
In second weekend, the Malayalam movie’s box office collection was reported to be Rs 1.19 crore. Failing to maintain consistency in the performance at Kerala Box Office, the sports drama movie made a collection of Rs 0.5 crore in the week days. Though the movie did not face competition with any other Malayalam film at the Kerala Box Office, it couldn’t attract a big number of audience in the cinema halls in 2nd week. The south Indian movie wasn’t released in overseas and hence it did not make any collection at the worldwide box office.
