After a short gap, the Malayalam film industry has had a good week, with a good number of Malayalam movies stepping in to make the maximum of the festival season of Eid.
As many as four big Malayalam movies made it to the theatres, in the form of Role Models, Oru Cinemakkaran, Avarude Raavukal and Viswasapoorvam Mansoor. The films Role Models and Oru Cinemaakkaran had a comparatively bigger release.
Avarude Raavukal was the first film to hit the theatres, followed by the other movies. Along with these movies, certain other language movies also released with Salman Khan starrer Tubelight, being the prominent one among them.
Here, we take you through the 5 movies, that made the maximum impact at the Kerala box office, in the past week.
5. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion
Baahubali 2 has been affected by the flurry of new release. The movie, after a fantastic run of above 50 days at the Kerala box office, has lost a few centres. But still, the film manages to draw crowds to the theatres, especially in city centres.

This Salman Khan starrer was one of the most awaited movies of this year. His previous releases like Sultan, Bajrangi Bhaaijaan etc., had a fantastic run at the Kerala box office. The pre-booking for Tubelight was decent enough but upon the negative reviews, there has been a slow down in the collections. But still, the film had a decent outing at the multiplex centres over the weekend.

Jayam Ravi starrer Vanamagan and Simbu's much awaited movie Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, were the other major releases of the past week but none of them managed to fetch favourable reviews.
Well, Role Models and Oru Cinemakkaran had a perfect start at the box office but these movies will have to face tough competitions from Tiyaan and Thondimuthalum Dhriksakshiyum, which are all set to open big, this week.
