Since its release, Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s The Kerala Story has been the centre of attention, and the conversations around it are not slowing down anytime soon. The film has left a memorable impression on the public, and the makers of the film are seeing a jump in box office numbers. The film added approximately Rs 9 crore on day 16, and the film’s third Sunday numbers are expected to be in the double digits. The film’s total is Rs 186.32 crore, and it is expected to earn around Rs 188 crore by the end of the weekend. These are exceptional for a film with a budget of approximately Rs 20 crore. The picture debuted moderately, but it has since been riding a wave, with 16th and 17th day figures exceeding the opening day. This is despite the fact that Fast X is the weekend box office leader in India.
The Kerala Story, directed by Sudipto Sen, has made multiple headlines for its intriguing, engaging, and poignant plot that empowers suffering women while also addressing the sensitive issue of ISIS recruitment from Kerala. While the film has left an extraordinary impact on the audience, its successful run at the box office won’t slow down any time soon.
