The second release of the year is Monster, starring Ayyalam icon Mohanlal. The movie, which was helmed by Vysakh, was a commercial disappointment. Despite receiving a wide distribution, the movie struggled to make ₹5 crores in India (nett) during its week in theatres.
It's safe to assume that the movie bombed miserably in theatres. Both audiences and critics gave Monster moderate to unfavorable reviews. Despite having a low budget of just ₹20 crores, Mohanlal's action film has failed to earn even marginal profit at the box office. The Monster box office collection day 9 report is here.

Despite spending a week in theatres, Monster hasn't displayed any signs of improvement. The movie made an estimated Rs 15 lakh in India on its seventh day (nett). After five days, Monster had failed to rake in even ₹5 crores at the Indian box office.
