Fahadh Faasil starred ‘Njan Prakashan’ earned the best review out from the many films that released during the recent Christmas season in Malayalam cinema. This Sathyan Anthikkad directorial has managed to find inroads to the hearts of its targeted audience – families. In line with its steady performance here in Kerala, this family entertainer has gone onto make a great business in the US as well. Into the second week of its run, ‘Njan Prakashan’ has minted $211,000 from the US. Now, this figure has positioned the movie on the second place of the highest box office earner from Malayalam cinema in the US box office in 2018.
It is Mohanlal starrer ‘Odiyan’ that was pushed to the third spot by this Fahadh Faasil starrer. The VA Shrikumar Menon directorial, owing to its hype before the release, went onto make $175,000; clearly underperformed, considering its scale. Now, it is just a matter of time for the Fahadh starrer to overthrow the top positioned ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’, which has onto collect $227,000 during its run in the country.
