All the lull that preceded before the festival of Eid at the Malayalam box office is sure to be washed away by the deluge of releases this week in the industry. From multi-starrers of Tovino Thomas, Soubin Shahir, Rima Kallingal and Nikhil Vimal to those with Basil Joseph and Lukman Avaran in the lead, the week of Eid promises to be a festive treat for the Malayali audience.

In theatres alone, four big releases are lined up including Aashiq Abu’s Neelavelicham, Irshad Parari’s Ayalvaashi and Muhashin’s Kadina Kadoramee Andakadaham. Another highlight is that it’s also a battle of friends during the festive season in theatres. Here’s the list of movies for you to choose from if you are yet to decide which film to catch this weekend:


Release platform: Theatre


The reimagining of A Vincent’s 1964 movie Bhargavi Nilayam has Tovino Thomas essaying the role of writer who stays at a house that is believed to be haunted by a vengeful spirit of a woman who had ended her life after being betrayed in love. The movie, helmed by Aashiq Abu, also has Roshan Mathew, Rima Kallingal and Shine Tom Chacko in the lead.


Release platform: Theatre

Debutant filmmaker Irshad Parari’s feel-good entertainer revolves around two neighbours – who are of the same group – quarrelling with each other after something goes wrong. The multi-starrer, which has Soubin Shahir, Binu Pappu, Gokulan, Nikhila Vimal, Naslen and Lijomol Jose in the lead, is touted to be a fun movie that will once again explore the ego clash between two individuals in a rural setting.

Kadina Kadoramee Andakaham

Release platform: Theatre

Set during the pandemic lockdown, debutant filmmaker Muhashin’s movie explores the struggles faced by its protagonist when all his plans go for a toss due to the COVID-induced restrictions.

Helmed by Bheemante Vazhi and Thamaasha director Ashraf Hamza, Sulaikha Manzil revolves around the emotions within a family as they gear up for a wedding.
