The crime action flick "Master" attracted over 3 million viewers in just five days since its release last Wednesday.
On Christmas Eve alone, the film attracted 910,000 viewers, and on Christmas Day 900,000, breaking the previous Christmas Day record of 740,000 set by "The Himalayas" last year.
The accumulated number of viewers until Sunday exceeded 3 million.
The film evolves around an intellectual crime investigation team probing a massive fraud case and chasing a cunning fraudster. It also set a new record among films released in December for reaching the 3-million milestone in the shortest span of time.
"The Attorney", which was released in December 2013, took eight days to reach the 3-million mark and attracted some 11 million viewers in total. In December 2014, "Ode to My Father" reached the mark in 10 days and eventually garnered over 14 million viewers.
