Kerala box office is back to its golden phase with the healthy clash between the recently released Malayalam and other language movies. Interestingly, this time Malayalam movies are dominating the other language flicks, with maximum box office collection and rave reviews.
Ennu Ninte Moideen, the Prithviraj-Parvathy starrer romantic drama and Pathemari, the Mammootty starrer period drama are respectively in the first and second positions, according to the recent box office status.
The best part is, both Ennu Ninte Moideen and Pathemari have been considered as the best films made in the past few years. Highly anticipated Tamil movie Puli, which stars Vijay in the lead role, only managed to grab the 5th position in the list.
It is a positive improvement that the audience are finally willing to accept the best films. Despite the fact that the Malayalam movies are very small ventures when compared to the other language movies; they have managed to beat them at the box office battle.
The new positive changes in the box-office status are undoubtedly a huge motivation for the Malayalam movie industry, to experiment with new, fresh themes and different patterns of filmmaking.
It has been proven that cinema no more belongs to the names of superstars; but it completely lies in the hands of the youngsters who are ready to experiment.
