Before we step in to the next month, here we take you through a monthly round-up, which would also show the movie of the month and the star of the month. Take a look..
Most Popular Movie Of The Month
No prizes for guessing the winner. It's none other than the Mohanlal starrer Oppam which is our choice for the most popular movie of the month. The film has had a phenomenal run at the box-office and is still going rock-steady. Oppam, is slowly nearing the 30-Crore mark.
The Star Of The Month
The month of September was all about Mohanlal. The actor had two big releases in the form of Janatha Garage and Oppam. While Janatha Garage created records in the Telugu film industry, it was Oppam that became a big hit in Malayalam. He has once again proved his phenomenal star power.
Big News Of The Month
One particular news came in as a big surprise for all. It was the announcement about Prithviraj's directorial debut that hogged the limelight in the past month. Prithviraj is all set to direct Mohanlal in his debut directorial venture, which has been titled as Lucifer.
Box Office Hits Of The Month
Month of September was a fruitful one for Malayalam film industry. Oppam is the biggest hit of the season and apart from that, films like Oozham, Welcome To Central Jail and Oru Muthassi Gadha are also doing good business at the box office.
Comeback Of The Month
Kunchacko Boban's Kochavva Paulo Ayyappa Coelho marked the comeback of the banner Udaya pictures. The film received excellent reviews and is doing decent business at main centres like Ernakulam, Trivandrum etc.
Song Of The Month
Much like the movie, the songs of the film Oppam have also entered the chartbusters. Minungum Minnaminunge and Chinnama Adi.., both the songs from the film are our choices for the songs of the month.
The Onam season witnessed the arrival of films like Oppam, Oozham, Kochavva Paulo Ayyappa Coelho, Welcome to Central Jail, Oru Muthassi Gadha etc.
Apart from that, the dubbed version of Mohanlal's Janatha Garage, also hit the theatres, early this month. Vikram starrer Irumugan, was the major Tamil movie release in the past month.
But, in all aspects, it has to be said that the month entirely belonged to Oppam and Mohanlal. The film has marked the big comeback of Priyadarshan in Malayalam after a series of flops. In all probabilities, the film might end up becoming the biggest hit in the history of Malayalam cinema.
