One of the biggest Malayalam movie releases in Kerala, Prithviraj Sukumaran’s much awaited directorial debut ‘Lucifer’ starring Mohanlal, Manju Warrier, Vivek Oberoi and Tovino is rocking at the box office on Day 1. Spanning 400 screens in Kerala alone and more than 3000 screens worldwide, the much-awaited Mohanlal-Manju Warrier starrer directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran has garnered nearly 100 per cent occupancy in Kerala cinema theatres, according to several film trade analysts. Given the film’s impressive star cast and being the directorial debut of one of Malayalam cinema’s most popular heroes, this political thriller is the talk of the box office in Kerala and according to trade analysts, the cash registers can just keep ringing the way it should with a blockbuster movie hit. While the filmmakers have not released the official Day 1 collection figures, trade pundits on Twitter are reporting that the film has collected over fifteen lakh rupees spanning 41 shows from Kerala theatre. More importantly, Prithiviraj’s directorial debut has scripted an all-time opening record in the US, with a gross $43,075 (₹29.8 Lakhs).
