The year 2012 has been extremely good for Malayalam films so far, and biggies are yet to release. Here is a glimpse of the famous 10 Malayalam films released this year, which turned out to be blockbusters.
This year was 'experimental' in nature as far as Malayalam
cinema is concerned. Films like 22
Female Kottayam, Diamond Necklace,
Beautiful, Run Baby Run and Ustad
Hotel to name a few proved that Mollywood is ready to
experiment with a new genre of film making. The audience too seemed
equally ready to accept this change.
Fahad Fazil is one actor who swept the Malayalam film industry
by storm and this year truly belongs to him. This year also saw the
debut of superstar Mammootty's son Dulquar Salman. Dulquar won the
hearts of the audience by his outstanding performance in Second

Another person who proved he was a terrific actor and
scriptwriter is Anoop Menon. His film Beautiful is
definitely one of the best films released this year. Anoop proved
it once again with the film Trivandrum Lodge.
