Mohanlal's much-anticipated Kurukshetra, which was delayed due to the controversy between Malayalam film producers and exhibitors over releasing superstars' films in A and B class theatres, has been released on Wenesday in 114 theatres across the State. The film has fetched an opening record collection of 90 lakhs on the very first day itself, breaking the record of Mammootty's Vishu release Annan Thampi, directed by Anwar Rasheed.

After the first show at Parthas theatre (Thiruvanthapuram), director Major Ravi and producer Santhosh Damodar were given a warm welcome by Mohanlal's fans in the city. Fans also poured milk on Mohanlal's portrait near the Pazhavagadi Temple.

Initial reports says that the film will be a huge hit among filmgoers since it is one of the exceptional war action dramas of recent times.

Produced by Santhosh Damodaran under the Damor Films banner, Kurukshetra has Mohanlal as Colonel Mahadevan, who is determined to reclaim the land grabbed by Pakistani soldiers in the Kargil valley. Siddique, Biju Menon, Cochin Haneefa and Sooraj Venjaranmoodu are also in the star cast.
