“Pee Mak Phra Khanong” taking Thailand by Storm, Breaking Records

Thailand is going crazy for “Pee Mak Phra Khanong “ starring “Mario Maurer” and “Mai Davika”. The film was release on March 28, setting a record of 21.2 million baht on opening day. With opening weekend numbers setting all time record high of 102 million baht. Not only are the opening numbers impressive, it continues to break box office record. On April 05 (day nine)  it passed the 200 million dollar mark with 205.2 million. Now in the  second week from running, it has now passed 300 million baht. “Pee Mak…” is the second highest grossing film in Thailand behind,  “”The Legend of Suriyothai” in 2001, grossed 550 million baht. Only in its second week, the film is probably on its way to become the highest grossing film in Thailand. The huge success of the movie have movie goers booking tickets in advance, but many are still unable to get tickets for the wildly popular movie.

Why do you guys think it came out with such a boom? Was it the storyline, the stars, or everything combined? I think Mario is paving his way to superstar stardom and leaving his peers left in the dust behind him. In Thailand, lakorn stars are more popular and more “respected” than the movie stars. Mario has lakorns filming right now for “The Rising Sun” series and “Madam Dun” with “Ploy Chermarn”.

I think many are eagerly anticipating his debut back to the lakorn world. If his  lakorns becomes a big hit, you better believe that Mario,  is true shining star of this generation of newcomers. He would basically have both worlds in his hands, lakorn and movie, which is a rarity. Mario has a huge fan base outside of Thailand, combining the international fans and Thai fans, he would be unstoppable. Mario is the whole package with his good looks, down to earth personality, bags of  acting skills and he has that charismatic charm many stars find hard to attain.

  1. The movie success is a bit of everything. The other four main comedian actors helped a lot. And GTH is such a successful production mostly raking in more than 100 million in some of their previous movies. But Mario is making a big hit after his other many movies do pretty okay in box office. And his lakorn has always been doing well in terms of rating.

  2. Wao , I’m very very happy to hear that this movie come to Cambodia in 23 may. I want to see it so much.
    And happy that this drama is a second highest grossing film in Thailand. Mai @ congratulation u, like I said before, u are a talent actress. : )

  3. I think Mario and Mai being the pranangs had a lot to do with the success too. They dont put a-listers in a movie hoping that the script itself will pull in viewers. If the 4 guys had a lot to do with the success, it wont be an exaggeration to say that Mai and Mario also had a lot to do with the success

    This movie has hit 320 million as of today.

  4. Not every A-list together will make a movie success though. It has to be a combination of everything. The other four are just as main characters as Mai and Mario. They’re the pra’nang but the 4 guys are also the main guys too.

    Im going to watch this movie and the fuss over it. Lol I think it might be as funny as Guean Meung Ho…. This movie is with newbies and it was a successful movie. They’re both known as praek and nangek 100 million.

  5. But you cant deny that Mario and Mai are responsible for some of the success of the film Shamp. If Koo Kum was successful you would totally give credit to Nadech wouldnt you? When I said the script of Koo Kum and Nadech alone can make it a hit, none of Nadech fans argued with me back then.

    I said this before and I’ll say it again, Mario is movie gold. Not all of his films have been successful, but he’s had quite a few box office hits too.

    As successful as this film is, dont think I’ll be watching it cause I’m not into over the top comedies.

    • I’m not discrediting them. They are part of it. But the movie is not just a focus between the love of Mak and Nak. The other four have a big role too.

      It’s not that I don’t argue about Koo Kum but I trust that maybe you’re right people will love Koo Kum cuz it’s a classic on its own ahahah.

      I do like comedy. I watch GMH and loved it so I don’t think GTH will disappoint.

  6. Has….. Very surprise , this movie has hit 320 million ? It mean this movie is very success in Nowday. Even thou Mai has a lot of gossip, but also has a lot of good thing happen to her that cause some people jealous on her and say bed of her offen. One day they will know that her/ him self is very bed. I still love & support Mai davika forever. 加油小麦!

  7. The movie very good.

  8. The movie very like and very good.There movie actor and actress our very like.
