Kerala Box Office 2013 - Half Year Report - Top Films

Kerala Box Office 2013 - Half Year Report - Top Films

Last year, the first 6 months was Golden period for Malayalam Cinema, with many Blockbusters, Super hits, hits in 180 days. But in 2013 situation is a bit bad. Without adding Satellite rights most of the films won't even feature in the hit chart. But Since Kerala is a small market where people give equal priority to all language films, its fair to add them too. But the the films that doesn't even collect 60% of its budget can be easily termed as a flop IMO

1. Romans

Last year it was the pair of Kunchako & Biju enon who gave us our first hit & blockbuster. This time around too the situation is the same. Like Ordinary this film too started pretty slow and grew gradually to the biggest hit of the year so far. The film completed 10,000 shows and 100 days run. 
 Budget around 5.5 crore
Distributors Share 6crore+ 
Satellite Rights around 3crore 


2. Sound Thoma

Eventhough panned by almost all critics the film did remarkable business thanks to the Summer Vaccation. Dileep's unique getup once again attracted kids and families into the theaters even though the film had nothing much in it. 
Budget 5cr+
Distributor Share around 4-4.5cr
 Satellite Rights around 4.5cr

Super Hit

3. Honey Bee 

The biggest surprise of the year so far. Directed by Director Lal's son Jean Paul Lal the film not only took a great opening but even during house full shows registered House Full shows, even in the 2nd and 3rd weekend. A Youth oriented film which family audience also accepted. Its still running in theaters. Made in small budget the film is already in profits just from theatricals.
Distributors share so far, around 3.5 crore
(so far)

Super Hit +

4. Amen

Another surprise hit of the year, the first hit for super talented Director Lijo Jose Pellissey, got an above average opening but with Excellent WOM it went on to become a super hit, eventhough the film was criticized for toilet humor and some crass dialogues. The location, music, camera work where the major plus points apart from acting.
Budget: 5.40 Cr
Satellite Rights : 2.90 cr
Other Revenues : 27 Lakhs
Distributors Share  : 3.5crore +
Super Hit

5. Neram / ABCD


'Pistah' song made this practically unknown movie into a hot property for distributors. But a viral song alone cannot make a film hit, Neram worked because of the treatment & execution. Thee film was mainly loved by the youth, the Pistah song helped in getting an opening too. Film was a good earner in Tamil too. Other language remake rights are sold for good numbers. Made in a small budget the film raked in profits for everyone associated
Distributors Share around 2.75-3 crore

Super Hit


 The film is still running in theaters. The film took an outstanding opening, but fewll in the coming days due to mixed WOM. But still is expected to be a profit earner for makers.
 Budget around 5.5 crore
Distributor Share around 2.75 crore (so far)


6. Immanuel

Mammooty's 1st genuine hit since Best Actor (2010) & Lal Jose's hat-trick hit. The feel good family entertainer, even though  very much predictable, was accepted by families. Helped by the summer vacation the film entered hit charts.
Budget : 5.30 cr
Distributor share 3.25 cr
Satellite Rights : 3.62 cr
Other revenues : 60 + lakhs

A serious movie with a shocking climax. A bold attempt by Roshan Andrewws was well received by Kerala Audience.
Distributor Share around : 3.15 cr
Satellite Rights : 3.30 cr
Other Revenues: around 65 lakhs
Prod cost : 5.75 cr


8. Celluloid

I’m From Tamil Nadu, I like Malayalam Movies very much, in contrast I heard many Malayalam people like VIJAY, AJITH, SURYA, ALLU ARJUN. Tollywood is completely opposite to molly wood, whereas kolly wood is mixture of both the tolly wood and molly wood. Movies Made by Malayalam Industries are heart warming and life oriented, where you can at least learn something for your Life. I wish People from Malayalam film industry release their movies in Tamil with subtitles so that it will reach wider audience. Because artistic work should reach more people in the world. I used to read all the latest Kerala News in Malayalam From this site, check it , would be useful.
