Renowned film-maker Priyadarshan has made a strong comeback to Malayalam films, with the recently released Mohanlal starrer Oppam, which has turned out to be a big hit.
The success of the film has reiterated the fact that masters are always masters. We shouldn't write off experienced film-makers as they have the ability and skill to make strong comebacks.
Well, Priyadarshan is back to hits and that definitely is a good news for the Malayalm film industry. After Priyadarshan, now we wish to see the comebacks of these Mollywood directors. Take a look..
The master film-maker who impressed us all with some memorable films have been out of touch for quite some time now. His previous film Living Together, which released in 2011, failed miserably. His last hit film was Harikrishnans, which released in the year 1998. We hope that he would comeback with a gem of a film.
He is one such director who has given us some quality films, which have went on to become all time classics. The director is in search of that much needed hit, which he hasn't had for quite some time now. He did show glimpses of comeback with the film Apoorvaragam, but couldn't take forward the momentum.
Rajasenan is the man behind some of the quality family entertainers of the 1990's like Aadyathe Kanmani, Meleparambil Aanveedu, Addeham Enna Iddeham etc. His movies with Jayaram are still among the favourites of Malayalam audiences. We hope that the director would make a fine comeback soon.
I V Sasi
I V Sasi is one such film-maker who brought in many new changes in the idea of film-making. He was once the superstar among the directors and made a mark of his own in other film industries also. The director is planning a comeback with an upcoming big budget movie. We hope that the film would bring back his days of glory.
We really can't write off this director. He is the man who brought stylish action entertainers to Malayalam cinema. The director who gave industry hits like Commissioner, The King and Narasimham, still has the energy to come up with another quality and energetic entertainer.
The success of Oppam would have definitely boosted the confidence of Priyadarshan as he was in search of hits. His previous film in Malayalam was Aamayaum Muyalum, which had failed to make a mark at the box office.
Oppam, which released on September 8, 2016, is racing ahead in terms of box office collections. The film went on to fetch close to 23 Crores in just 13 days and has already been declared as the biggest hit of this year, so far. By all means, the film has all chances to break the collection records of Drishyam.
Well, we really hope that all the senior film-makers in the above list would make a strong comeback, just like Priyadarshan did.
