Newly released Malayalam movie ‘Carbon’ witnessed decent occupancy in the opening weekend and raked in a total income of Rs 0.093 crore in two days. Featuring Fahadh Faasil and Mamta Mohandas in major roles, the latest Mollywood film received mixed reviews from the critics and positive feedback from the audiences.
Facing 7% occupancy on first day of release, Venu’s directorial venture could not start its box office journey on a higher note. Failing to receive huge response in Kochi, the movie registered a business of Rs 0.0456 core on 1st day of its release in India. The film minted Rs 0.056 crore overall box office collection on opening day in Kerala.
After taking a decent start to the box office journey, the Malayalam film failed to maintain consistency in its performance at box office on day 2. The multi-starrer film, which also features Dileesh Pothan, Nedumudi Venu, Manikandan and Soubin Shahir in leading roles, witnessed decline in public response on Saturday. The Malayalam thriller film amassed Rs 0.0442 crore on 2nd day.
Earning a total income of Rs 0.0935 crore in 2 days, the Malayalam language movie experienced minor surge in the public response on Sunday. Produced by Siby Thottupuram and Navis Xaviour, ‘Carbon’ movie faced box office competition with the adjacently released south Indian films and failed to earn an expected box office collection in first weekend.
Apart from grossing poor income in domestic arena, the Malayalam movie could not exhibit better performance in overseas. Witnessing box office clash with the latest Hollywood movies in foreign countries, the newly released south Indian film could not earn a big monetary profit in the international market.
Adjacently released Malayalam movie ‘Shikkari Shambhu’ also took silent start to its journey at Malayalam Box Office. Receiving low response on opening day, the Mollywood film recorded a business of Rs 0.023 crore at Kochi Box Office. In Kerala multiplexes, the movie witnessed 50% occupancy and bagged Rs 0.064 crore total box office collection on first day of its release.
