Suresh Gopi's films dominate pre-Vishu fares
By Paresh C. Palicha, Indo-Asian News Service
Kochi, April 3 (IANS) With Vishu festival nearing, there is a spur of activity in the Malayalam film industry with quite a few releases lined up for the occasion.
The top five films are:
1. "Chintamani Kolacase" - Suresh Gopi and Shaji Kailas team up again to make a murder mystery. Suresh Gopi plays a shrewd lawyer who solves the death of a medico in a ragging incident.
2. "Kilukkam Kilukilukkam" - This comic caper starring Mohanlal, Kunchako Boban, Jayasurya and Kavya Madhavan is popular among kids.
3. "Rashtram" - It seems Suresh Gopi is the flavour of the season in the Malayalam film industry with two back-to-back releases within a week. This is a typical Gopi film directed by Anil C. Menon who has now entered the big league.
4. "Madhuchandralekha" - Urvashi and Jayaram come together in this film directed by veteran Rajasenan. But the film leaves you with mixed feelings.
5. "Vargam" - Prithviraj was heavily banking on the film to boost his career but the result is not as satisfactory as expected.
