If you have already caught up on last week’s big Malayalam releases – Soubin Shahir’s horror-comedy Romancham and Joju George’s crime drama Iratta, this week also promises to be a treat. The highlight is the showdown between the films of Mohanlal and Mammootty. While the latter’s vigilante crime-thriller Christopher, which is helmed by B Unnikrishnan, looks to continue the megastar’s successful run, Spadikam 4K aims at re-introducing Mohanlal’s iconic character Aadu Thoma to the younger generation of audience who couldn’t watch the movie in theatres when it had released in 1995.

Here's a look at all the Malayalam releases in theatres as well as OTTs that you can watch this weekend.


Release platform: Theatres


The B Unnikrishnan directorial revolves around the titular character of a cop, essayed by Mammootty, who firmly believes that ‘justice delayed is justice denied’. The police officer, known for taking law into his own hands when it comes to punishing perpetrators of crimes against women, finally meets his match in an antagonist who puts the lives of the latter’s loved ones in peril. The film also has Amala Paul, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sneha and Vinay Rai.
