This day 4 years ago, Pulimurugan stormed its way into the league of the biggest blockbusters of Mollywood in 2016. The highly anticipated movie, directed by Vyshakh was one of the costliest movies of Mollywood Industry. This film will definitely be counted among one of the best acting performances of Mohanlal’s dignified career.
The movie: Pulimurugan turned out to be one of the biggest hits of Mohanlal’s career. His larger than life image of a one man army was widely accepted by the audience.
They say that a well edited trailer is half the job done. The nicely edited trailers showed glimpses of the machismo of Mohanlal, choicest of action scenes, and never-seen-before action sequences with real life tigers.
Bringing tigers into life on screen was indeed a novel idea and it played an important role in making the movie a blockbuster hit. Add to it an element of excitement which was present there throughout the movie coupled with exemplary action sequences and the beautiful color tones.
The movie makers had left nothing to fate. The movie was strategically marketed and publicised. The movie’s biggest USPs were its abnormally high budget, incredible action sequences and A-list actors which were strongly highlighted during the promotions. As a result it managed to lure even the “I-watch-one-film-in-a-year” cinegoers.
The credit for this blockbuster movie goes to the scriptwriter – Uday Krishna. He has an expertise on what’s going to work and what’s not going to work with Mollywood audiences. He has shown that his much-hyped dream project was worth the excitement.
