Says a theatre owner from Malabar area of the state where the film is doing extraordinary business: “ Mammooka appears only towards the interval point of the film. It is Prithviraj who carries the show. I would give the younger actor 55 percent for the success of the film.” Says a prominent theatre owner from Thiruvananthapuram district: “Both Mammookka and Prithviraj fans worked in tandem for the success of the film.” Any which way you lookPokkiri Raja, is surely the biggest hit of the year so far.

‘Pokkiri Raja’ which was released in another 26 centres in out of the state has also opened reasonably well. The Tamilish takings and dialects widely used will also help the movie to bring in another 50 lakhs from the out of state centres. The movie is also expected to earn 2.40 crores as satellite rights. The movie has already brought in another one crore, while settling its other rights.

‘Pokkiri Raja’ wins hand down

In the fight for the vacation winner between M and M's of Mollywood, ‘Pokkiri Raja’ seems to have won the race hands down. The Mohanlal flick for the season ‘Alexander, The Great’, though was an inspiring attempt taking inspirations from the Oscar winner 'Rainman' somehow got out of competition from the day one. The Mohanlal fans were not even ready to take the film due to peculiar reasons, which made it a hold over in some centres of the north on the second day.
While 'Mammootty-Prithviraj' fan's combined strength has shown itself for ‘Pokkiri Raja’, as the film seems to have managed to satisfy the fans of both the stars. The extraordinary opening that the movie displayed at the Box Office has helped it to take a return around two crores producer share in the first week itself.
Meanwhile Sathyan Anthikkad's ‘Katha Thudarum’ has as usual, taken a slow start and is expected to grow with audience as days go by.

Mammootty, Prithviraj in Pokkiri Raja Review

Debutant director Vyshak, the assistant to hit directors Joshey and Johny Antony has brought out a movie which has the positive qualities of both directors. Vyshak has brought the richness of Tamil film to Malayalam, better than anyone who has tried that before.

Pokkiri Raja begins twenty years prior to the present time and the situation prompts Raja (Mammootty) to go in prison and then to Madurai five years later. He becomes a successful Goonda and grows in power and wealth. Fifteen years passed by, Raja takes a kottation to kill a man named Surya in Kerala, but later recognizes that it was his own blood brother. The first part of the film has importance to Prithviraj until the Mega star arrives. The punch dialogues in post interval session have made the audience go crazy with their love for the star.

Youth icon of the year Prithviraj as Mammootty's brother attracts the audience with his punching fists, dancing legs and comedy oriented dialogues. With this film he proved to be next only to the Big M's (in which ever order you place the 'M'). Shreya's debut into Malayalam as Prithviraj's heroine adds Oooooommps. The film doesn't have a single dull moment and will be enjoyable for family audience.

Salim Kumar as novelist Manoharan Mangolodayam and Suraj Venjarammoodu as Police officer work hand in hand to add fun to the scenes. Udayakrishna and Sibi K. Thomas proved yet another time that they remain unchallenged in the field since they know, what the movie going audience need. Visuals are beautifully enhanced from Shaji's camera. New editor Mahesh Narayanan is fast paced.

Music by Jassie Gift is fresh and moves every hip. B.G score by Rajamani is impressive. The film is done in a festive mood and keeps up with the standard and expectations it gave through the teasers.
