The Kerala Story, directed by Sudipto Sen, has been under the radar even before its theatrical premiere. On Sunday, May 7, the film made its highest-ever collection of approximately Rs 16 crore. The film saw a modest drop on Monday but still managed to mint an appreciable amount. The Kerala Story’s backlash escalated, as the Bengal government recently banned the film. The first Monday of every cinema release is critical, and Adah Sharma’s picture has passed the test. It has outperformed! The Sudipto Sen film made more money on Day 4 than it did on Day 1. It earned approx INR 10.50 crores.
The Kerala Story Managed To Earn More In Day 4 Than Its Day 1 Collection
The Kerala Story earned between Rs 7.50 and Rs 8 crore on its first day. It became the year’s fifth-highest opener. This brings the four-day total to Rs 45.75 crore. Today, May 9, The Kerala Story is expected to cross the Rs 50 crore mark. On Monday, the Hindi version had a 27.57 percent occupancy rate.
The Controversy Involved In The Kerala Story
Even problems, negative reviews, and boycott falls have not prevented The Kerala Story from being a box office success. The film, which follows a group of non-Muslim women who are forced to convert and join the terrorist outfit ISIS, is doing well financially. Despite the odds, it has managed to make the cash registers ring.
Despite the controversy and boycott calls, the film has received positive reviews. While Madhya Pradesh has made the controversial show tax-free, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have banned its screening. Adah recently responded to individuals who were critical of her film by tweeting, “Standing ovation in theatres, honorable PM mentioning our film #TheKeralaStory, critics and the audience applauding my performance, HOUSEFULL messages from so many of you, bumper opening!” I could never have imagined achieving so much. “All of your wishes for me are coming true.”
All About The Kerala Story
Sudipto Sen’s The Kerala Story stars Adah Sharma, Yogina Bihani, Sonia Balani, and Siddhi Idnani. The plot is around an innocent Hindu woman who is coerced into converting to Islam. She is later transferred to the terrorist organization ISIS. What surprised everyone was the revelation that the film is based on real-life occurrences in which about 32,000 women from Kerala are trapped under this dangerous scam.
The trailer’s description was modified after legal action. It was modified from being the “story of 32,000 women” to the “story of three women.”
