Surprising Success: The Kerala Story Emerges Among Top Opening Weekends, Chasing Bholaa Movie Record

The Kerala Story

In a surprising turn of events, The Kerala Story has achieved an extraordinary feat by securing a spot among the top opening weekends/first three days of the year. In an era where recovering costs alone is considered a success and respectable collections warrant celebration, this film has surpassed expectations. What’s even more remarkable is that it has managed to surpass Bholaa, which had a Thursday release, on the list of the biggest opening days.

Although the numbers for The Kerala Story fall slightly short of Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, which had the advantage of a partial holiday release during Holi, the film gained momentum and recorded decent collections on Thursday and Friday, eventually picking up speed over the rest of the weekend. Meanwhile, Kisi Ki Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’s collections soared to over 25 crores each day during Eid and the day after. Pathaan, on the other hand, reached an entirely different level altogether.

The current ranking of the top five highest opening weekend/first three-day collections for Hindi films released in 2023 are as follows:

  1. Pathaan – 167 crores
  2. Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan – 69 crores
  3. Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar – 37 crores
  4. The Kerala Story – 35 crores*
  5. Bholaa – 30 crores

As the first week comes to a close, the top three positions are expected to remain unchanged. However, it will be intriguing to witness the competition between The Kerala Story and Bholaa. The Ajay Devgn starrer garnered 56.50 crores in its initial seven days, and that will serve as the benchmark for the Adah Sharma film in the days ahead.

*Please note that the figures for The Kerala Story are estimates, and the final numbers are yet to be confirmed.

Produced by Ekta and Rhea Kapoor, the motion picture is directed by Lootcase’s former student Rajesh Krishnan. On March 29, 2024, the movie will be released in theaters. The film’s release has been postponed by the producers from its original March 22 discharge date. Taking after their 2018 female buddy comedy Veere Di Wedding, this film speaks to Ektaa R Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor’s momentous collaboration. Kareena, Kriti, and Tabu were shown strolling with their backs to the camera in the movie’s first teaser. The three are dressed in red cabin crew outfits. The main characters in the cast are Diljit Dosanjh, Tabu, Kriti Sanon, and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It is advertised as a laugh-riot drama centered around three ladies and is set against the backdrop of the faltering airline industry. Nevertheless, their fates place them in some inappropriate circumstances and entangle them in a deceitful web. Kareena last appeared in the Netflix film Jaane Jaan, Kriti in Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya, and Tabu in Khufiya.
