Drishyam which released on December 19, 2013, completes 50 days of run today in Kerala few centers outside Kerala. It has not only become the biggest grosser & hit ever in the 85 year long history of Malayalam Cinema, has also sort of created record for setting/breaking more records than any other movie.
What ever be the records, all of them were set in record time too.
Drishyam released in about 85 theaters in Kerala and is still continuing in about 71 theaters. The film has completed (or will by this weekend) about 21,000 shows worldwide.The film has crossed 3 crore mark in Ernakulam city alone, 2cr from Calicut city, 1cr from Trivandrum, Thrissur etc and close 1cr mark in Palakkad, Kollam, Kottayam etc. The film has set records in every single center that it has released.
Total Gross from Kerala alone has crossed 30 crore mark, with 5-6 crores expected from Rest of the world. Adding satellite, video & music rights the total revenue should be around 43-44 crores. Even though its still running in many theaters, can't expect the total revenue to touch 50 crore mark, or it might just do it, looking at the rush at main centers this past weekend.
The remake's have already began pre- pre-production talks. Tamil version will directed by Jeethu himself with Kamal Haasan playing the lead. Crazy Star Ravichandran - P Vasu combo in Kannada. Victory Venkitesh will be doing the Telugu version and rumors says Ajay Devgn might do Hindi version.
