Malayalam Cinema Hits The Jackpot

2024 is far from a swansong for Indian cinema. While Tamil cinema is experiencing another dry spell, their counterparts from Telugu, Kannada, or even Hindi didn't fare better. 

Yet, what surprises many is the recent spate of successes in Malayalam cinema. March has not even set in, and Malayalam cinema has already delivered a hattrick of box office successes in February. Be it Premalu, Bramayugam, or even Manjummel Boys, every film has hit the bullseye.

Premalu is now a massive blockbuster, earning almost 60 crores on a budget of 3 crores. On the other hand, Mammootty’s much-awaited horror film ‘Bramayugam’ has turned out to be a super hit, earning almost 50 crores overall, compared to a budget of 27 crores.

This is even more crucial for Malayalam cinema since post-COVID it has been facing a severe crisis. From hundreds of Malayalam films released annually, only a few were profitable.

In 2023, out of almost 120 releases, just four films, viz. ' Kannur Squad Click to look into! >> Read More... ', 'Kaathal-The Core', ‘ RDX Click to look into! >> Read More... ’, and ‘ Romancham Click to look into! >> Read More... ’ managed to score big at the box office. Even in 2022, out of almost 176 Malayalam releases, only 17 managed to turn out to be profitable.
