On January 2, the first release of 2016 in Mollywood has come and it was Style directed by Binu S and starred by Unni Mukundan. There is a belief or superstitious belief in Mollywood that the first film releasing in January or New Year will be a box office failure. All these years many big films which planned its release in January made sure that theirs is not the first release in January. But Style does not care about those things and it had made sure that it is the first release of this year an as per reports coming from box office as well as from audience response, the film will blow off all those above mentioned superstitions in Mollywood as well. Style is surely on its way to the first hit of 2016 in Mollywood.
If Style achieve that success in box office (it is almost sure that it will), it will be the first solo hit for Unni Mukundan in his career as well. Even though he had success like Mallu Singh, Vikramadithyan etc in his career, those were not solo hero subjects. Those films has stars like Kunchacko Boban and Dulquer Salmaan with him in important roles. But this success of Style will be sweeter for Unni Mukundan as this is a complete Unni Mukundan show and that is what the highlight which makes the film a success.
We are not forgetting the superb direction of Binu S, great Background scoring by Rahul Raj, fabulous editing by National award winner Vivek Harshan and above all, the superb show by Tovino Thomas as Edgar, who played the Villain in this movie.
Unni Mukundan is very happy that Style is on the way to a big success. It will not only give his first solo hit but also put an end to some jinx that caught Malayalam cinema related to the first release of a New Year. Binu S is repeating what he had done through Ithihasa. He shows that with more big films he can do wonders in Mollywood.
