Clash of stars in Mollywood this Onam minus Dileep
Onam is a time when major movies are set to release in the Malayalam movie industry. No difference, this year too.
The industry is facing a major setback as Dileep, one of the popular actors, is in jail relating to the actress attack case. As the industry hopes to recover from the downfall, a number of major releases are set to clash at the theatres during Onam - Bakrid festival.
The big stars of the industry Mohanlal, Mammootty, Prithviraj, Nivin Pauly and Dulquer Salmaan are in the race.
The first to reach is the Prithviraj Sukumaran starrer Adam Joan. Releasing on August 31, this romantic thriller movie is written and directed by Jinu Abraham. The film also features Bhavana, Mishti, Rahul Madhav, Sidhartha Siva and Narain. The main highlight of this film is that major portions of this was shot in Scotland.
This comedy entertainer has Mohanlal, Anoop Menon, Priyanka Nair and Anna Rajan in the lead. Set to release on September 1, this movie is directed by Lal Jose and written by Benny P. Nayarambalam. The catch of the film is that Mohanlal is playing the role of a professor after many years. A single track from the movie, Eantammede Jimikki Kammal, sung by Vineeth Sreenivasan and Renjith Unni is all over the internet.
In this upcoming movie Mammootty joins hands with ‘7th Day’ fame director Shyamdhar. It is a family entertainer featuring Asha Sarath, Deepti Sati, Innocent, Dileesh Pothan and Hareesh. The film is slated for release on 1 September. Coincidently this movie is also about a professor. Pullikkaran Staraa is the story of Rajakumaran played by Mammootty, who comes to Kochi as an instructor in a teacher’s training institute.
Actor Soubin Shahir is all set to don the director's hat through the film Parava starring Dulquer Salmaan, Shane Nigam, Zinil Zainudeen and Arjun Ashokan and is expected to be in theatres on September 1. The film was actually set for a Christmas release last year but later postponed due to unknown reasons. The movie co-written by Soubin and Muneer Ali reportedly revolves around the pigeon flying sport in Fort Kochi.
