Dileep’s Ramaleela gears up for a massive release in Europe
Releasing amidst various issues from all quarters, Dileep’s Ramaleela opened to excellent response from the audience. Within a month of its release the movie has already emerged as one of the highest grossing Malayalam movies of the year. The issues related to Dileep’s arrest in the actress assault case has not had any sort of impact on the movie’s box office earnings.
Ramaleela is now all set for a wide release in UK and other European countries. PJ Entertainments is releasing the movie there on October 27. The movie will be screened in London, Ireland, Austria, Malta, Ireland, Switzerland, Italy and many other major centres. This is probably the biggest ever overseas release for a Malayalam movie after Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan.
Ramaleela, directed by debutant Arun Gopy is a political thriller. Sachi has scripted this movie which features Dileep as Ramanunni, a public representative. Prayaga Martin has played the female lead. Senior actors like Raadhika Sarathkumar, Mukesh, Renji Panicker, Siddique, Viayaraghavan, Kalabhavan Shajon and Suresh Krishna are also part of the supporting cast.
Recently, the movie’s pirated links were leaked online through some torrent websites. Within hours of its release, hundreds of users downloaded the movie. However, swift action by the makers with the help of cyber cell officials helped them to take down the links. This big budget movie is funded by Tomichan Mulakupadam’s Mulakupadam Films.
