KOCHI: Megastar Mammootty’s latest family action entertainer, The Great Father, has set a new record with its opening day collection of Rs43.1 million, pushing Rajnikanth’s mega hit Kabali and Mohanlal’s 2016 release Pulimurugan to second and third position respectively.

Kabali became Kerala’s highest first day grosser with a collection of Rs42 million, followed by Pulimurugan with an opening day collection of Rs49.5 million.

The Great Father has also performed well at the multiplexes in Kochi from where it has made a business of Rs1.389 million from 47 shows.

The film was scheduled to release on Dec.25 2016 during Christmas holidays, but was postponed to Thursday, 30 March 2017.

The movie had record number of fan shows all across Kerala, and was released in 202 screens with 958 shows on the opening day itself.

The film has received rave reviews with Mammootty donning new looks as David Ninan and was well received by social and electronic media.

The film directed by newcomer Haneef Adeni has Arya, Sneha and Miya playing key roles besides Mammootty.

The film, produced by Prithviraj Sukumaran, Arya, Santhosh Sivan, and Shaji Natesan under the banner of August Cinema, has Gopi Sundar as music director.

Mohanlal’s recent Pulimurugan had set record as the first Malayalam movie to gross over Rs1 billion.

Prithviraj Sukumaran, one of the producers of this film, released the collection report in a Facebook post.”Like Pulimurugan, consider this the results of an experiment to gauge the real magnitude of the domestic market of a big ticket Malayalam film.

We are growing guys..And how! And the credit belongs to each one of you! #TheGreatFather, 202 screens, 958 shows (including late night shows), Rs43,146,345 Gross. Thank you!”, the actor-producer said.
