First Day Collection of Georgettan’s Pooram
The comedy entertainer is set against the backdrop of Thrissur, and Dileep plays the title role George Vadakkan, the son of a Marthoma priest Mathews Vadakkan, played by Renji Panicker. Mathews wants George to continue his legacy and become a priest. George is the leader of his gang (played by Vinay Forrt, Sharafudheen, Thiru Actlab). He falls in love with Rajisha Vijayan’s character Merlin, whose parents want her to become a nun. The interesting incidents that take place in their lives make up the story of K Biju’s directorial venture.
Georgettan’s Pooram is the first release of Dileep in 2017 after Welcome to Central Jail, which failed to impress the audience previous year. The trailer and songs of the latest Dileep-starrer have attracted the cine-goers. The comedy entertainer is expected to perform well at the box office as audience have always accepted movies set in Thrissur. Interestingly, Dileep’s character speaks the local dialect in the film.
On the opening day, Georgettan’s Pooram reported the morning occupancy of only 40% but picked up well from evening shows. The movie received good support of male audience and highest occupancy is recorded in Kerala. As per reports, the movie has minted the amount of 1.85 crores at box office.
Georgettan’s Pooram also stars TG Ravi, Assim Jamal, Chemban Vinod Jose, Malavika Nair, Kalaranjini, Sunil Sukhada, Sasi Kalinga, Janardhanan, Jayaraj Warrier and Sathi Premji in pivotal roles. However, the Dileep-starrer faces a tight competition from megastar Mammootty’s family action thriller The Great Father, which has already become the biggest opening day grosser in Malayalam.
