With both Kammath & Kammath and Lokpal being criticized for its lack of content, it is perhaps the time for Mammootty and Mohanlal to take a closer look at the kind of scripts they give their nod to.
Kammath & Kammath was the first high profile film of the year, with Mammootty and Dileep playing the heroes, scripted by the hit duo Siby K Thomas and Udayakrishna and directed by Thomson, who has a hit to his credit called Karyasthan.
Lokpal had Mohanlal and Kavya Madhavan in the lead cast, script by S N Swami and direction by Joshiy.
However both the films failed to impress anyone. Rajeev Ravi's Annayum Resoolum and the Kunchacko Boban - Biju Menon starrer Romans tasted success in the first month of the year. The result is that the focus has suddenly shifted to the young crop of heroes or new experiments.
The forthcoming films like Netholi Oru Cheriya Meenalla, Celluloid, Amen and David & Goliath have not been made as per the commercial patterns.
Can 2013 spring up some surprises and how will the big names in the industry fare during the rest of year are questions on everyone's minds now.
