Are M & M banking on past glory

Have you noticed a recent trend in Malayalam films, which does not feature the two big superstars-  Mammootty or Mohanlal in it?

They will have clippings from the past hits of either of the stars or both of them. Why so? Is it because that will bring in a cheer in faces of the hardcore fans of the superstars?
Besides the two top stars, some bits from Padmarajan's films are also being shown in between some of the new age films.
From Natholi Oru Cheriya Meenalla to Trivandrum Lodge, Beautiful or David & Goliath, the films all have small portions from the films of the two big Ms.

Trivandrum Lodge even had Babu Namboodiri playing the character called Thangal, which he had earlier played in Thoovanathumbikal.
Earlier there were some of the old songs being recreated, remixed or used as such in the new films.
