According to reports, The Kerala Story has performed better than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in India. Sudipto Sen’s film The Kerala Story, which co-debuted with James Gunn’s final installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and had Adah Sharma in the lead, reportedly did better than the Marvel Studios film. Initial estimates of box office receipts show that The Kerala Story has brought in Rs 7.5 crore while GotG Vol 3 has brought in Rs 7 crore.
The Kerala Story earned a 28.48% overall Hindi occupancy, according to Sacnilk.com. On Friday, the night show had a greater occupancy rate than the morning show, which had a 17.47 percent turnout. The Kerala Story fared twice as well on its opening day as compared to The Kashmir Files last year, according to the reported collection of Rs 7.5 crore.
According to industry expert The Kerala Story could have a strong debut, it might not maintain the momentum that The Kashmir Files did. “If you look at The Kashmir Files, the movie had garnered favourable reviews, particularly from the public that went to the movies. The Kerala Story has received a variety of reviews thus far. Only if moviegoers support The Kerala Story with the same level of enthusiasm will it succeed at the box office.
