We have discussed a lot about the big box office successes of the Malayalam movies, released in the year, so far. Apart from the huge revenue that the Malayalam movies of the first half of 2017 brought in, the industry could also be proud about the content that the films had.
Earlier, we took a look at the top 10 Malayalam movies of the year so far, which created the maximum impact at the Kerala box office. Big Malayalam movies like The Great Father, Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol, Ezra etc., ruled the roost in that list.
Now, let us keep aside the box office numbers and have a close look at the Malayalam movies of 2017, which can rightly be tagged as the top class movies, of the year, so far.
Take a look at the best 5 Malayalam movies of 2017, which no true lover of movies, should miss..
1. Take Off
Words would be less to describe this film, which went on to gain wide critical reception. Mahesh Narayanan came up with one such movie, which could proudly be given the label of one of the best Malayalam movies, in the recent times.
Take Off, narrated the tale of nurses who gets trapped in Iraq, during the war time and the makers opted to narrate the film in the best possible way. With the backing of some powerhouse performances, Take Off appealed to all sections of audiences alike, only to fly at new heights.
2. Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum
This Dileesh Pothan movie, which hit the theatres towards the fag end of the first half of 2017, is a film to reckon with. In fact, the initial half of 2017 ended in style, with this Fahadh Faasil starrer, which is a class apart.
Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum is realistic in every frame and the makers of the film guarantees entertainment, without losing the quality. The film has a simple storyline, but the performances, the approach that the film follows and many other factors, make the film, one among the best movies of the year, so far.
3. Angamaly Diaries
Yet another film, which was high on the realistic factor. Kudos to Lijo Jose Pellissery, for coming up with a film like Angamaly Diaries, which was raw and real, in each frame. The guts of the makers to cast a complete set of newcomers in it, yielded the right results. Angamaly Diaries, with whole lot of freshness and uniqueness in it, is a definite must watch for all genuine movie lovers.
4. Rakshadhikari Baiju Oppu
Well, Rakshadikari Baiju Oppu was a hit at the box office. But, had it not released at the time of Baahubali 2, the film would have made it even more bigger at the box office. This Biju Menon starrer was a sweet little tale about a person, who loves to hang around with his friends.
The film was able to take a major section of the audiences, back to their younger days and that nostalgia element was served delectably in the film. Biju Menon was in top form in this film, scripted and directed by Ranjan Pramod.
Well, here is an entertainer, which can be given that label, in all the senses. In fact, Godha is one such entertainer of the year, which satisfied majority of the audiences. With the essence of a sports drama in it, Godha kept the audiences engaged, throughout its running length. Basil Joseph's second directorial venture is definitely, one of the best films of the year, so far.
Apart from the above mentioned Malayalam movies, there were also other films like Adventures Of Omanakuttan, C/O Saira Banu etc., movies that almost made it to the list.
More importantly, the biggest positive could be found in the fact that all of the above mentioned Malayalam movies, met with a success at the box office, which rightly proves that the audiences do accept innovations and changes, as well.
