Johny Antony’s Bhaiya Bhaiya, starring Kunchako Boban and Biju Menon, leads the way for a cinematic feast at theatres. Releasing on Friday in Kerala, this is touted as a comedy and a clean family entertainer. Nisha Aggarwal, Kajal Aggarwal’s sister, makes her Malayalam film debut.
Close on its heels on Saturday is Dileep-starrer Villali Veeran.
Noted television director Sudheesh Shankar makes a foray into films with this family drama. Namitha Pramod is Dileep’s onscreen lover.
National award-winning director Anil Radhakrishnan’s second film Sapthamashree Thaskaraha hits screens on Sunday (Onam day). This multi-starrer, a story of seven thieves and the heist they plan, features Prithviraj, Asif Ali and Nedumudi Venu in the lead. Radhakrishnan calls it a comedy. Renu Mathews is paired opposite Prithviraj.
This Onam will see a star war with major releases lined up in the coming days. It is Mohanlal-starrer Peruchazhi, which will hit the big screens on August 29.
Can Mammootty be left behind? Rajadhi Raja, directed by debutant Ajai Vasudevan, also releases the same day. Lakshmi Rai plays Mammootty’s wife.
“This is a family entertainer,” says Vasudevan, adding, “with Mammootty playing a simple ordinary man.”
So, are you ready for this Onam sadya (traditional Kerala meal)?
