2017 will see the first biggest clash at the UAE Box Office tomorrow as both recent Malayalam releases, Mohanlal starrer Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol and Prithviraj’s Ezra are slated to release on Thursday.
The Mohanlal starrer released on 20 January at the Kerala Box Office. Directed by Vellimoonga fame Jibu Jacob and produced by Sophia Paul under the banner of Weekend Blockbusters, the family entertainer turned out to be the first blockbuster of the year. The film also starred Meena, Anoop Menon, Kasaba fame Neha Saxena and Aima Rosy Sebastian.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj starrer was released in Kerala on 10 February and is ready for its UAE release tomorrow. Special mention should be given to B Cinemas, which is releasing the film in UAE within one week of it’s Kerala theatrical release, which is very rare for any Malayalam films. Touted as a horror thriller, the film had already emerged as a big success at the Kerala Box Office.
But the good news for the makers of both films is that none of the big non-Malayalam films are releasing this week and last week’s both non-Malayalam releases, Suriya’s Singam 3 and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 had dropped considerably at the UAE Box Office. Both films will be screened at a majority of screens and will eventually become a good success to the makers of both Malayalam films, Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol and Ezra.
