The 2005 Onam turned out to be one of the best in recent times for Malayalam cinema. Out of four releases, three were profitable and one is a wash-out!
The message is loud and clear- The audience of Kerala still roots only for superstar films. The cynical audiences are not willing to accept a hero dumped on them and their loyalty and devotion to the superstars remain unchanged.
