According to the Film Exhibitors’ United Organisation of Kerala (FEUOK), ‘Manjummel Boys’ has not only received glowing reviews but also enjoyed a phenomenal run at the box office, solidifying its place in Malayalam cinema history.

Earning the title of one of the biggest hits in Malayalam cinema, ‘Manjummel Boys’ surpassed the previous record held by Jude Anthany Joseph’s flood saga ‘2018’, which collected over ₹150 crore. With its impressive journey and unprecedented box-office run, fans of mainstream Hindi cinema are now eagerly anticipating the dubbed Hindi release of the film, mirroring the success of other hit regional films.
