Releasing on a smaller number of screens in India as well as worldwide, newly released Malayalam movie ‘Sherlock Toms’ commenced its box office journey on a decent note. The multi-starrer offering witnessed moderate occupancy in the morning, noon and evening shows on opening day.
Featuring versatile artists Biju Menon, Miya George, Srinda Arhaan, Salim Kumar and Vijayaraghavan in leading roles, the Malayalam film showcased poor performance on Indian box office. In several regions across Kerala and other south Indian states, the movie gained moderate response from the film-watchers.
Adjacently released ‘Tharangam’ witnessed similar kind of response from the audiences. Reason behind the less attention of public spectators towards these films was none other than Mahesh Babu’s latest bilingual movie. Directed by Murugadoss, the spy thriller offering registered record-breaking business in the opening weekend.
Apart from the action thriller film starring Rakul Preet Singh and S J Suriya in the major roles, Jr NTR starrer new cinema garnered a walloping income of Rs 108 crore in domestic arena. The multi-starrer Tollywood film, which also features Niveda Thomas and Raashi Khanna in prominent characters, grossed more than Rs 150 crore worldwide box office collection in two weeks.
