At right intervals of time Mohanlal movies comes and breaks all existing box office records and make Malayalam Cinema to next higher level. For last 30+ years, only Mohanlal doing this in Mollywood and now his film Pulimurugan came to make Malayalam Cinema a member of the glorious 100 crore club as well. In between the celebrations of the records made by Pulimurugan, many people forgot about Mohanlal’s own movie Oppam, which was making records silently. As per the reports coming in from trade guides in the industry, Oppam had grossed more than 42.6 crores from Kerala box office and surpassed the Kerala gross of Drishyam.
