Pulimurugan’s biggest highlights have been its rich visuals and the 20 minute climax scene between Mohanlal and a real tiger. This sequence was choreographed by the renowned Peter Hein. This was also one of Mohanlal’s most expensive films till date, reportedly made on a budget of Rs 25 crore. For all those who don’t know, this is Mohanlal’s second solo hit after Oppam. Oppam has crossed Rs 50 crore mark at the box office worldwide. The movie marked the comeback of the popular director-actor duo – Mohanlal-Priyadrashan. Mohanlal played a visually challenged man who gets involved in a murder and then senses the real murderer lurking around him. Even before these two solo hits, Mohanlal’s Telugu movie Janatha Garage also starring Jr NTR, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen performed phenomenally at the box office. It has already crossed Rs 100 crore mark. So, that’s three hits in a row!
The remake rights for Pulimurugan have already been bought by Abhishek films for a whopping amount. Reports stated that Prabhas and Salman Khan were being considered for the Telugu and Hindi version respectively.
