Kathakali - Box Office Collection

Kathakali despite earning a positive response from critics and audiences alike didn't get much of an opening as it was pushed to smaller screens and limited shows as the film released along side 3 other movies for the Pongal weekend. The movie was considered dead from day one itself as it didn't get that strong pickup it needed and disappeared from theaters from it's second week itself. The film ended up getting with losses in Tamil Nadu and overseas markets but was profitable in Kerala and Karnataka. Producers faced heavy losses as they couldn't get much revenue from distributor sales and share from net as the worldwide net was low. Overall the film is considered a loss despite earning positive response. Reason for this was mainly because of the poor release timing.
