'1971 Beyond Borders' first-day collection: - Malayalam superstar Mohanlal's dual role patriotic movie '1971 Beyond Borders', which released yesterday on April 7th, opened up with mixed reports from the critics and the general public. The film released in 200+ screens across the Kerela and 405 screens all over the India. It was aired 612 shows on its opening day in the Kerela, which is quite a low number for Mohanlal's movie.

With mixed reports and limited release, the movie failed to mint good money at the ticket window on the 1st day of its release, which is a huge disappointment for Lalettan fans, who have been eagerly waiting to see '1971 Beyond Borders' to surpass opening day record set by Mammootty's 'The Great Father'.

let's check first day collections below.

'1971 Beyond Borders' 1st day Kerela collection

The film minted Rs 2.21 crores gross at the Kerela box office on the first day of its release, which is the third biggest opening for Mohanlal's movie in Kerela after Pulimurugan (Rs 4.08 crores) and Munthirivallikal Thlirkkumbol (Rs 2.62 crores).

The Nett and share amount of '1971 Beyond Borders' on the first day are Rs 1.76 crores and Rs 1.06 crores.

However, the movie which was expected to break the existing first-day record of 'The Great Father', which minted Rs 4.31 crores gross, failed to collect even half the amount of Mammootty's family thriller.

'1971 Beyond Borders' 1st day Kochi Multiplexes and Carnival Cinemas collection

The movie minted Rs 9.95 lakhs collection on its opening day at the Kochi Multiplexes with an occupancy of 84.14%. This is a good collection for the film with decent occupancies in the Kochi Multiplexes.

On the other hand, the first-day collection of Mohanlal's '1971 Beyond Borders' at the carnival cinemas is Rs 10.14 lakhs with a decent occupancy of 71.14%.

Overall, '1971 Beyond Borders' had less than expected collection on the first day of its release and we need to wait and see how the film performs at the ticket window in its forthcoming days.

Directed by Major Ravi, the film has Tollywood actor Allu Sirish in guest role essaying the role of Tank Commander and it is produced by Haneef Mohammed under his Red rose creations banner.
