Vishu season is considered to be one of the most benefited seasons for Malayalam cinema. The films releasing this season are guaranteed to get good returns.
Let us take a close look at the Malayalam films which emerged as Vishu box office winners in the past 5 years.
Well, it was not that good for Malayalam cinema. Only China Town managed to bring in some revenue but even that movie fell after initial collections. Urumi which released towards the end of March continued its good run.
The season was one of the best for Malayalam film industry. Mayamohini, which was a 2012 Vishu release went on to become a bumper hit. 22 Female Kottayam too, fetched good reviews and went on to get good collections.
Once again, a Vishu season belonged to Dileep. Dileep's Sound Thoma went on to become a huge hit. Mammootty's Immanuel too, got good reviews and emerged as a hit.
Dileep's movies know to pack the punch. In 2014, Dileep's Vishu release Ringmaster went on to become a big hit. Prithviraj's Seventh Day which got great reviews collected well at the box office.
It definitely belonged to Bhaskar The Rascal which made a thunderous opening at the box office. Oru Vadakkan Selfie which got released on March 2015 too, got good collections during the season.
Three movies are out there for Malayalam film-goers to watch this Vishu. Jacobinte Swargarajyam which released on April 8th, King Liar which released on April 2nd and Kali which released on March 26th are there in the theatres.
All the movies have received good reviews and have kept the box office ticking bringing in good revenue to the industry.
But, this Vishu doesn't have any films of Big Ms. Last year, Mammootty's Bhaskar The Rascal released on Vishu day and did get a grand opening.
Apart from the the Malayalam releases, this Vishu also has two big other language releases. Vijay's Theri and Shah Rukh Khan's much awaited Fan would be there to give tough competition to the Malayalam cinema.
Anyways, let us see which film is going to emerge as the big winner in this Vishu season.
