With the release of Priyadarshan’s Aamayum Muyalum and Vysakh’s Cousins, the X mas season has started in Malayalam. Usually it's a crowded period for the industry with all the biggies in the race.
But this time, both Mammootty and Mohanlal are not having a release during this season. The battle is being limited to just three Malayalam films, the next in line being Shibu Balan’s Nagaravaridhi Naduvil Njan hitting the screens on Christmas Day.
In fact the postponement of three major films has affected the plans. The Dileep starrer Ivan Maryadaraman, Mammootty’s Fireman and the Nivin Pauly - Amala Paul film Mili that were planned as X mas releases will now be coming early next year.
So who will emerge the winner during this X mas-New Year season? The coming days will give an exact picture about it.
