The month would witness the release of a Mohanlal film after a gap of more than 9 months. Vismayam, which is the Malayalam version of Telugu film Manamantha, would hit the theatres on August 5, 2016.
Apart from Mohanlal, the month of August would be special for actors Jayasurya and Biju Menon, with two films of both the actors expected to hit the theatres this month.
4 films were released during the Eid week and out of them Anuraga Karikkin Vellam emerged as the clear winner. Kasaba and Karinkunnam Sixes also went on to do a decent job at the Kerala box office.
Last week, two Malayalam films got released in the form of White and Kismath. White, which has Mammootty and Huma Qureshi in the lead roles has got a bleak opening at the box office. Reviews for the film are not favourable either, leaving the film in trouble.
Meanwhile, Kismath has fetched some good reviews and the movie is expected to pick up in the box office collections in the coming days.
Well, we hope that the month of August would fetch gold for Kerala box office.
