September 29, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Mollywood had three big releases during the Ramzan month but the ultimate winner in this race has turned out to be superstar Mohanlal’s Shikaar. The two other Malayalam movies released during the period were Vande Mathram and Elsamma Enna Aankutty.
Shikaar had got a grand opening during the first few days and continued the success journey for first few weeks in almost all the major centers. It is the only movie among the three releasing during Ramzan that could maintain this trend. The movie has reportedly collected an amount of 3.5 crores as a distributor share from its first two weeks.
In the meantime, the Mammootty starrer Vande Mathram has failed to create magic at the Box Office. It is a bilingual movie, which was made with a budget of around 7 to 8 crore. However, it seems to have lost charm among the audience and is expected to earn not more than 3 crores from the box office. However, the producer is alleging lead actor Mammootty for not cooperating and showing lack of interest in this movie and according to him it is a big reason of the loss. He said that the film also got delayed for Mammootty. The producer further added that they had to cut some of the scenes as they were done badly by the actor.
The third movie in the race Elsamma Enna Aankutty has however done much better than Vande Mathram. It has been already declared as a hit and the director Lal Jose could manage even more viewers than Shikaar in some centers. It is running steady with audience coming to the theaters even on the third week.
