Starring Naslen and Mamitha Baiju in lead roles, the film has entertained audiences and critics alike, making it one of the biggest blockbusters of recent times.

Within its first 31 days of its release, Premalu not only secured its place as a top-grossing Malayalam film but also clinched the title of the most profitable Malayalam movie in recent memory. Backed by popular actor Fahadh Faasil and actor-filmmaker Dileesh Pothan, the film was made on a reported budget of ₹3 crore and has gained remarkable financial success.

 

 

Premalu achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing the ₹100 crore milestone, joining the elite league of Malayalam cinema alongside other recent hits like Manjummel Boys. Its domestic box office earnings stand at a staggering ₹62.8 crore, with Kerala contributing over ₹53 crore alone. The Telugu version of the film has also crossed the ₹2 crore mark, while international markets have contributed a significant ₹37.2 crore.

Premalu director says he got interested in cinema because of Selvaraghan 

Selvaraghan recently told Film Companion, “I wanted to make films after watching the works of Selvaraghan, sir. There might not be an obvious relation between the kind of films that I do but I know a few connections that are woven into my work. These are things I tend to know more than others.”
