Mohanlal‘s Villain was one of the most exciting films of the year, however it could not live up to everyone’s expectations. The film got mixed reviews from the critics as well as the public, but even after this set back, it has still managed to perform well at the domestic box office. In fact, Villain has also become the highest all-time Malayalam opener at the Kerala box office on day one. Mohanlal crushed the record set by Mammootty’s The Great Father (Rs 4.31 crore) earlier this year, by raking in Rs 4.91 crore (gross) courtesy his latest release. In fact, even after that, there is no stopping the film, as we hear Villain has gone on to gross in excess of Rs 10 crore over the first weekend at the Kerala box office. This is quite a decent number considering that the film did not get favourable reviews.
