Corona Papers Box Office Collection

Mollywood filmmaker Priyadarshan has returned to the spotlight with his latest thriller film ‘Corona Papers, following the disappointment of ‘Kunjali Marakkar.’ The movie was released on April 6 and reportedly earned an impressive Rs 7.5 lakhs on its opening day at the Kerala box office.

While there is no official confirmation yet, discussions on Twitter forums that monitor box office collections suggest that Shane Nigam’s investigative thriller is receiving only moderate openings at the box office.

The early reviews of ‘Corona Papers’ indicate that Priyadarshan has delivered a solid thriller that can be enjoyed even by those who have seen the original Tamil version, ‘8 Thottakal’. Siddique’s performance is praised as the standout, complemented by Priyadarshan’s skillful direction.

Considering the positive response from the audience, it is anticipated that ‘Corona Papers’ will attract more viewers and generate higher box office numbers, especially with the approaching weekend, which is likely to draw in more families.

‘Corona Papers’ is described as an investigative thriller and features notable actors such as Shine Tom Chacko, Siddique, and Hannah Reji Koshy in significant roles.
