Do you like a Hollywood style action scene, muscle cars and baseball bats included? Then Ranam is the movie for you. The movie, which was also titled Detroit Crossing, includes everything from crime and action to drama and romance.

Dulquer Salmaan starrer Kammattipaadam was the story of two local goons from a slum in Kochi. While the movie focuses on real estate mafias and people being forcefully removed from their houses by rich builders, it was also a look into the life of lower caste people whose voices are seldom heard. Dulquer and Vinayakan brilliantly portrayed the characters Krishnan and Ganga, leading the movie to win four Kerala State Film Awards including Best Actor for Vinayakan.

A movie that broke multiple box office records, Pulimurugan is the kind of action movie that one comes to witness rarely on screen. Mohanlal plays the role of a tiger slayer who is the hero of his tribal village. But still, he is an innocent man who loves his family, especially his younger brother and would do anything for them. When his younger brother gets in trouble, in order to save him, Pulimurugan unknowingly gets embroiled in an illegal drug deal.
Action Hero Biju
8.1OTTplay Rating
An action-comedy police story - that's what Action Hero Biju is. The movie gives us a realistic glimpse into the daily life of a Sub Inspector, the working of a police station, the challenges he has to face, some humorous moments and mostly the importance of the police force.
Kung fu and similar martial arts in a Malayalam movie? Yes. Yodha revolves around the life of Ashokan (Mohanlal) who goes to Nepal to stay with his uncle. In an unexpected turn of events, he becomes lost in the streets of Nepal with his only company being a young Lama of a Buddhist monastery. Ashokan realises that the young boy is being hunted by a group of evil cult followers and decides to save him from the villains.
