Last week, we saw two Malayalam movies finally hit theatres after the Kerala cinema strike was called off. Both were family dramas, starring big Malayalam stars - Dulquer in Jomonte Suvisheshangal, Mohanlal in Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumabol. They released with a day's gap between each other. Jomonte garnered praise for Mukesh-Dulquer's father-son chemistry. It was effortless, and a delight to watch. Mohanlal's film was a entertaining family drama with great performances. So, both films had received positive reviews, what was the verdict at the BO now? According to reports on IBT, as of day one collections, Dulquer's movie fared better as it raked in Rs 2.71 crore as opposed to Mohanlal's collection at Rs 2.52 crore. In the following days, Mohanlal's film caught up as it managed to collect at least Rs 2 crore each day. As for Dulquer's film it collected Rs 1.65 crore, Rs 1.78, Rs 1.96 consecutively totalling it up to Rs 8.11 crore. But at the end of three days itself Mohanlal's movie has managed to collect Rs 8.68 crore. As of now, Mohanlal's movie is winning the box office game. However at the multiplexes, Dulquer's film is leading as opposed to Mohanlal's film. The box office race between the two is clearly a close one, as one catches up with the other. You must know, this box office game is between Mohanlal and his arch Rival - Mammootty's son - Dulquer. How times have changed! We are now waiting for the day when Mohanlal's son Pranav Mohanlal will compete with Dulquer. That will be one clash to look out for.
