The industry, which is best known for its content quality and abundance of talent both in the cast and crew, has already produced four blockbusters in 2024, including the first-ever Rs. 200 crore film, Manjummel Boys. However, Malayalam cinema has been making some incredible films, especially in the last few years, and here we present five such movies that you can watch on Sony LIV.


Director: Rahul Sadasivan

Cast: Mammootty, Sidharth Bharathan, Arjun Ashokan


The period horror thriller, which features megastar Mammootty in one of his most challenging roles, is now streaming on Sony LIV. The experimental film, which is made in a black-and-white format, marked the veteran actor’s first onscreen collaboration with talented filmmaker Rahul Sadasivan. The exceptional performances of Mammootty,k Sidharth Bharathan, and Arjun Ashokan, and the exceptional technical aspects, make Bramayugam a must-watch.

The survival thriller helmed by Jude Anthany Joseph, which is based on Kerala state’s real-life struggle with the 2018 floods, is available for streaming on Sony LIV. 2018, which features a stellar star cast including Tovino Thomas, Kunchacko Boban, Asif Ali, and many others, is one of those extremely well-made and well-performed films produced by Malayalam cinema that a contemporary cinema lover shouldn’t miss.

The psychological horror film is the second Rahul Sadasivan directorial on this list.
