Released on a Thursday, May 23, 2024, the film has not only lived up to but exceeded expectations, securing a colossal opening at the global box office. The film’s success is a testament to the star power of Mammootty, who plays the eponymous character Turbo Jose, captivating audiences worldwide.

Mammootty’s Turbo Box Office

The latest box office sensation, Turbo, has swiftly climbed the ranks to become the second-largest Malayalam box office opener of the year 2024. This Mammootty-starrer has outperformed the opening day figures of Mohanlal’s Malaikottai Vaaliban, setting a new benchmark for Malayalam cinema. The film’s release has sparked a box office frenzy, boasting an impressive Malayalam occupancy rate of 48.53%, with moviegoers flocking to theaters all day long.

Turbo Plot

Turbo unfolds the story of Jose, portrayed by Mammootty, a man of simple origins with a penchant for brawls and a heart as big as his fists. His moniker, ‘Turbo,’ is a nod to his explosive nature, and his protective instincts often land him in comically precarious situations. The film chronicles the misadventures of Jose as he finds himself embroiled in a legal quagmire, leading to an unexpected journey to Chennai, where his rustic demeanor collides with urban chaos, resulting in a whirlwind of laughter and mayhem.

A Stellar Opening Day Performance

On its opening day, Turbo has reportedly amassed an impressive net collection of approximately ₹5.7 crores. This remarkable achievement positions the film as the second-highest opening of the year, closely trailing behind Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Aadujeevitham—The Goat Life, which garnered ₹7.5 crores on its debut. The film’s day one performance has set the stage for a promising run at the box office.

The film’s screening times have seen a robust turnout, with morning shows recording a healthy 49.73% occupancy. This was followed by afternoon shows at 43.01%, evening shows at 46.84%, and night shows peaking at an impressive 54.53%. Turbo has particularly shone in key cities across Kerala, with Kochi leading the charge with an astounding 82% occupancy, closely followed by Kollam and Kozhikode, which boasted 74.25% and 73.50% respectively.

Turbo Surpasses Malaikottai Vaaliban

In a remarkable feat, Turbo has eclipsed the opening day collection of the period fantasy drama Malaikottai Vaaliban, headlined by Mohanlal. The Lijo Jose Pellissery-directed film, which premiered in January 2024, had previously collected around ₹5.8 crores at the Kerala box office on its first day. Despite this, Turbo has emerged as Mammootty’s second-largest box office opener in Kerala, falling short of surpassing the Day 1 collection of the 2022 blockbuster, Bheeshma Parvam.

Turbo’s Box Office Trajectory

Given the escalating excitement and positive word-of-mouth, it is anticipated that Turbo will effortlessly surpass the ₹10 crore mark with its Day 2 collections. The film is on track to experience an exceptional weekend at the box office, further cementing its status as a commercial success. The action-comedy’s record-breaking extra-show count and the audience’s enthusiastic response foreshadow a triumphant theatrical run for Turbo.
