Pretham First Day Box Office Collection
Jayasurya’s horror comedy entertainer “Pretham,” helmed by Ranjith Sankar, was released all over India on Aug. 12. The movie has been released in 91 screens in Kerala alone, locking horns with the actor’s action entertainer “Inspector Dawood Ibrahim” (IDI), which also had a worldwide release on Friday. In “Pretham,” Jayasurya plays as a mentalist John Don Bosco, who can read the minds of people.
What happens after he enters the life of three youngsters Denny Kokken (Aju Varghese), Shibu Majeed (Govind Padmasoorya) and Priyalal (Sharafudheen) form the gist of “Pretham.” The movie also stars Dharmajan Bolgatty and Pearle Maaney in significant roles. Jaysurya’s tonsured look in “Pretham” had become the talk of the town after the actor shared a video of his make-over for the horror movie, which is his third outing with director Ranjith after superhit movies “Punyalan Agarbathis” and “Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam.” The movie is being bankrolled by the actor-director duo under the banner Dreams N Beyond.
On the opening day, Pretham has started on a good note and witnessed overall decent occupancy of 35-40% across the country. As its opening day collection, it reported the business of around 0.42 crores*. Pretham is getting positive words from viewers, which can result in decent growth on Saturday and Sunday. Whereas the other two have received negative reviews from critics as well as moviegoers.
