Though June is packed with big releases in other languages with movies such as Adipurush, Bloody Daddy, Satya Prem Ki Katha and The Flash set to hit theatres and OTT platforms, Mollywood has had a quiet start to the month, especially with Tovino Thomas and Asif Ali-starrer 2018 leaving theatres and now streaming on OTT.

The two theatrical releases this week stars Rajisha Vijayan, Priya Prakash Varrier and Dileesh Pothan in the lead. This should come as a respite for the film exhibitors too, who were on a strike on June 7 and June 8, and haven’t had a big release since 2018.

Here’s the list of Malayalam movies that you can watch this weekend.

Director Jude Anthany Joseph’s disaster drama, which is based on the Kerala floods of 2018, paints a picture of heroism and humanity that helped the people of State tide over the calamity.
