Chennai, Feb 6 (IANS) Superstar Mohanlal-starrer Malayalam thriller "Drishyam", which celebrates its 50-day run Thursday, has emerged as the biggest hit in Malayalam filmdom. The film has so far collected over Rs.35 crore at the box-office.

The film, which released Dec 19 last year, was reportedly made on a budget of Rs.4.5 crore.

"It celebrates 50-day run at the box-office not only in Kerala but as well as in Tamil Nadu. We don't know the exact figure but it has raked in over Rs.35 crore so far. It has turned out to be biggest hit in Malayalam industry," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

A tautly made thriller, the film revolves around the efforts of a father to cover up a murder committed by his family member.
