After the highly disappointing Ramzan season, Malayalam Cinema is all set to welcome the Onam season with huge hope. The industry will witness some prestigious projects hitting the theatres for Onam.
It is the biggest releasing season for the industry and Onam is one of those seasons which strongly influence the overall economical status of the Malayalam movie industry. But since last few years, no blockbusters have happened in the Onam season.
Some of the factors which badly affect the Onam movie market is doubtlessly the downfall in the quality of movies, increasing numbers of Television movie premieres and last but not the least, piracy.
But this time, the scenario is expected to take a different turn, as some highly anticipated bid budget films are releasing for Onam. Loham, Utopiayile Rajavu, Double Barrel etc are some of the big projects which await the release.
Along with the expensive films, some small projects are also getting ready to hit the theatres for this Onam; which is doubtlessly commendable. But there are also chances to postpone the releases due to various reasons.
Some other projects, which were expected to release this season, will hit the theatres a week after Onam. As per the sources, Life Of Josutty and Amar Akbar Anthony are the two projects which are expected to be released immediately after Onam.
