Mohanlal’s much talked about film, Odiyan has released on December 14. Made on a huge budget, the film has been released in Malayalam and has been dubbed in Telugu and Tamil. The movie is based on an interesting subject of shape shifting which means that men can transform themselves into a different being or a creature. Odiyan is touted to be the most expensive film of the year and makers had left no stone unturned to make sure that it gets the successful release. However, the film is receiving mixed reviews. Looks like Mohanlal starrer has failed to live up to audience expectations but despite that, the film is earning good numbers at the Box Office.
Odiyan earned Rs 6.50 crore in Kerala, Rs 90 lakh in Karnataka, Rs 6 crore in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, US, UK and Australia. The film has earned Rs 1 crore in some parts of India and Rs 4.42 crore in the UAE on the first day of its release. On the first day, it has earned around Rs 20 crore which is not bad but considering that Odiyan has been made on a huge budget, these numbers are surely less. According to social media buzz, Odiyan has earned Rs 17.79 Lakhs approx at an occupancy rate of 92 % on its second day at the Kochi Multiplexes. In fact, at many places, it has registered full house. Also, had the BJP not called a strike in Kerala hours before the screening of Odiyan, the film could have done a good business.
Meanwhile, director VA Shrikumar Menon’s Odiyan starring Mohanlal, Prakash Raj and Manju Warrier’s film has been leaked online and this can affect Box Office business in coming days.
