Manjummel Boys Box Office collection – The recent blockbuster, currently the all-time highest-grossing film in the Malayalam film industry, has set its biggest record. As per the recent updates, the Chidambaram directorial has now crossed the prestigious Rs. 200 crore mark, at the worldwide box office. Thus, Manjummel Boys has also emerged as the industry's Rs. 200 crore club opener in just 27 days.

Manjummel Boys Box Office – Touches the Rs. 200 crore mark

As per the recent reports from trade experts, Manjummel Boys has now opened the glorious Rs. 200 crore club in the Malayalam cinema. The Chidambaram directorial made a total collection of Rs. 200 crore from its worldwide box office run, within just the first 27 days of its release. It is indeed a massive box office figure for the survival drama, which is not headlined by a superstar and was made on a moderate budget.


The grand success of Manjummel Boys underlines the fact that content will always remain the king when it comes to films. Notably, the Chidambaram directorial has been performing better than the Kerala box office at the other Kerala states and overseas centers. Especially, the survival drama has created history at the Tamil Nadu box office, by emerging as the first-ever Malayalam film to cross the Rs. 50 crore mark in the state.

Manjummel Boys kickstarts a new phase in Malayalam cinema

The massive success of Manjummel Boys is indeed a big inspiration for the Malayalam film industry and its talents. The Chidambaram directorial has indeed kickstarted a new phase for Mollywood, which was earlier considered a small industry that makes content-oriented films only. But the survival drama’s mega success proves that even content-driven films can do wonders at the box office if they are made and marketed well.

If things proceed at the same rate, Manjummel Boys has all the possibilities to cross the Rs. 225 crore mark at the worldwide box office, within its lifetime run at the theatres. The OTT release of the film might get delayed, considering its glorious run at the theatres. As reported recently, the OTT rights of Manjummel Boys have reportedly been bagged by Disney+ Hotstar.
