Which Malayalam film will you watch this week?
Big Malayalam movies have been lined up for release on Eid.
Since Mohanlal’s Puli Murugan has been delayed further, all the attention is on Mammootty’s Kasaba, along with the Asif Ali and Biju Menon starrer Anuraga Karikkinvellam. Both films will release on July 7.
Meanwhile, Shajahanum Pareekkuttiyum and Karinkunnam 6’s will release a day before, on July 6.
