Mammootty's Big Release

Pappayude Swantham Appoos came in amidst huge expectations. The film marked the reunion of Mammootty and Fazil after a gap of nearly 5 years. Their previous association was the 1987 movie Manivathoorile Aayiram Sivarathrikal, which fetched extremely good reviews.
Mohanlal's Big Release
Meanwhile, Mohanlal gave a big treat to the Malayalam film audiences in the form of the much awaited movie Yodha, directed by Sangeeth Sivan. The film graced the theatres on September 3, 2017, a day before the release of Pappayude Swantham Appoos.
High On Expectations
Yodha, which was the second outing of Sangeeth Sivan after the big success of Vyooham, was high on expectations. Yodha, a film with some adventurous elements was also expected to have some fine action sequences in it.
The Box Office Batlle
Well, the stage was set for a perfect battle at the box office. Both the films had their own specialties associated with them, but still, it was Pappayude Swantham Appoos which won the final race by emerging as a blockbuster.
Yodha too did a decent business but was pushed to the second spot. Pappayude Swantham Appoos, which struck the right chords with the family audiences definitely had the upper hand.
Nevertheless, the Malayalam film industry and the audiences got two movies, which earned the cult classic status. Both Pappayude Swantham Appoos and Yodha have a huge fan-following even now and these movies would definitely feature among the best works of Mammootty and Mohanlal.
