Kabali fever had taken a firm grip over Mollywood and Kerala box office in the past week. Like the entire nation, Mollywood also was talking about Kabali.
No other Malayalam movie had the scope to score at the
box-office amidst the Kabali craze. Here we list some of
the major highlights of the past week.
Kabali Creates History At Kerala Box Office
Kabali craze in Kerala did take an all new height in the past
week. The film, which released in 306 theatres across Kerala did
have an excellent advance booking and the film reportedly raked in
4.27 Crores on Day 1 at the Kerala box office.
Pa.Va Makes It To The Theatres
The makers of Pa.Va had the guts to release their film
along with Kabali. The number of centres were seemingly
less, but the film has been getting decent reviews. We have to wait
to know the exact business made by the film at the Kerala box
Kabali Waves Hurt Kasaba And Karinkunnam Sixes
As said earlier, the past week wasn't a good one for Malayalam
movies as such. Many films did drown amidst the Kabali
waves. Films like Kasaba and Karinkunnam Sixes
were the most affected since both the films did find a reduction in
the number of shows.
Anuraga Karikkin Vellam Continues To Do Good Business
Anuraga Karikkin Vellam, which won the best reviews
among the Eid releases has done good enough to hold much of the
centres, despite the Kabali waves. The film also has had
reduction in shows, but in comparison with other films, Anuraga
Karikkin Vellam has done decent enough to sustain good number
Trailer Of Oppam Opens Well
Trailer of Oppam, which released along with Kabali, did open to
great response. The trailer edited by Alphonse Puthren did win wide
appreciations and the expectations on the film has taken an all new
Dileesh Pothan Announces His Next
Team Maheshinte Prathikaaram came up with an exciting
announcement in the past week. Dileesh Pothan would team up with
Fahadh faasil yet again for the upcoming venture titled as
Thondimothalum Driksakshiyum. The film would also have
Alencier Ley and Soubin Shahir in important roles.
Kabali, which released on July 22, 2016 has opened to
mixed reviews in Kerala. Many Malayalam movies like Kasaba
lost screens and we have to wait to see whether these films would
regain their centres in the coming days.
The only Malayalam film which released in the last week was
Pa.Va directed by Sooraj Tom. The film which has
Anoop Menon and Murali Gopy in the lead roles got released in good
number of theatres in Kerala.
Pa.Va, which is the acronym of Paapanekurichum
Varkiyekurichum has an ensemble star cast comprising of actors
like KPAC Lalitha, Renji Panicker, Indrans, Asokan,Ranjini,
Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Bhagyalakshmi, Prayaga Martin, Muthumani etc in
The upcoming week holds a lot for Malayalam cinema with three
movies gearing up for release. Mammootty's much awaited film

theatres on July 29, 2016.
Apart from that, Kismath directed by Shanavas Baavakutty and Guppy directed by Johnpaul George is also expected to release on July 29, 2016.
