5 Malayalam movies scheduled for Christmas release!!
The Christmas season is closing in and several films from various languages are getting ready to cash in on the holiday period. This is one of the biggest seasons as theatres are certain to be full with the family audience. In Mollywood, already five mainstream films are scheduled to hit screens this Christmas. Starting the race will be Mohanlal’s Odiyan. Fahadh Faasil, Tovino Thomas, Kunchacko Boban and Jayasurya are the other stars getting ready for the clash.
Arguably, the most hyped Malayalam movie in recent years, Odiyan will hit screens on December 14. It has been planned as the biggest ever release in Malayalam cinema history. According to the makers, the movie will be released in around 4000 screens in 31 countries across the world. It is releasing simultaneously in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu languages. In Kerala alone, the movie is expected to open in over 400 screens.
December 21 is the next most wanted release date. Tovino’s ‘Ente Ummante Peru’ and Fahadh Faasil’s ‘Njan Prakashan’ are planned for this same date. ‘Njan Prakashan’ has Fahadh teaming up with the evergreen Sathyan Anthikad-Sreenivasan combo. From the promos, we can make out that movie will sure attract the families.
Likewise, ‘Ente Ummante Peru’ is also a family friendly movie. Directed by debutant Jose Sebastian, the movie has Tovino and veteran actress Urvasi in the leads. As the title suggests, the movie tells an endearing story of a mother-son relationship.
‘Pretham 2’ is the second installment in the Pretham franchise. Jayasurya and Ranjith Sankar are coming together once again through this film. All their previous outings – ‘Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam’, ‘Njan Marykutty’, ‘Pretham’ and the ‘Punyalan’ franchise – were hits, so they will be hoping to continue the successful run.
‘Thattumpurath Achuthan’ starring Kunchacko Boban is directed by veteran filmmaker Lal Jose. The actor has been on in good form this year with most of his films finding acceptance among the general audience, largely families.
Apart from the aforementioned films, screens in Kerala will also be witnessing the release of Aquaman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Maari 2, Seethakaathi, Adangamaru, KGF and Kanaa. Needless to say, it is indeed a delicious year-end treat for hardcore cinephiles.
