      No Releases For A Month: Malayalam Cinema To Face Huge Loss?


      The entire world is currently fighting the dangerous coronavirus pandemic. When it comes to the Malayalam film industry, the coronavirus scare has resulted in the theater shut down and shoot cancellations. As per the reports, the Malayalam cinema business might face a huge loss, as there won't be any film releases for more than a month.

      According to trade experts, the industry might have a tremendous loss of around Rs. 300 Crores, if it misses the releases for more than a month. Several highly anticipated releases of the year, including the Mohanlal starring historical drama Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham and Mammootty's political drama One, that was expected to be released by the end of March and beginning of March, have been pushed indefinitely.

      No Releases For A Month: Malayalam Cinema To Face Huge Loss?

      Initially, the authorities were planning to shut down the movie theaters till March 31, 2020, to prevent the coronavirus from spreading. However, the situation is not under control yet. If things follow at the same rate, there are chances for the Government to extend the duration of theater shut down till mid-April.

      In thet case, the movies which were originally slated to release in March 2020, including Mohanlal-Priyadarshan duo's Marakkar Arabikadlainte Simham and Tovino Thomas starrer Kilometers And Kilometers will be the first few films to hit the theatres once the shut down ends.

      The April releases, especially the Vishu special releases including the Mammootty-Santhosh Narayanan duo's One, Fahadh Faasil's Mahesh Narayanan project Malik, Asif Ali starrer Kunjeldho, and so on will be postponed to Eid. It is because of the limitations in the number of theatres in the state. In short, this one-month long theater shut down will make a negative impact on the all the upcoming releases of this year.
