Vysakh’s Mammootty starrer Madhura Raja will join the blockbuster hit Lucifer as the Vishu season becomes hotter. Also joining the fray is debutant director Vivek’s Athiran, starring Fahadh Faasil and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles.
Here is a look at the two major Malayalam releases, hitting the screens today (April 12).
Madhura Raja: It is nine years after Pokkiri Raja that Vysakh is returning with its next instalment, Madhura Raja. Of course the director has made it clear that Madhura Raja is not actually a sequel though some of the characters from Pokkiri Raja are coming back.
Mammootty plays the hero in this masala entertainer.
Athiran: Fahadh Faasil is having a dream run with three hits in Malayalam (Varathan, Njan Prakashan and Kumbalangi Nights) and a well appreciated Tamil release, Super Deluxe.
Joining him is Sai Pallavi, who made a big mark in Malayalam with Premam and Kali, as the heroine.
