The latest updates from the Malayalam film industry.
Nivin Pauly has been the darling of the box office for some time now, with some major blockbusters under his belt.
Will he continue the dream run with his latest release, Jacobinte Swargarajyam, directed by his mentor Vineeth Sreenivasan?
A good show at the ticket windows is crucial for Nivin as his peers in the industry have all impressed this year.
Prithviraj managed a hit with Paavada, Fahadh Faasil made a spectacular comeback with Maheshinte Prathikaram and Dulquer’s performance in Kali has been receiving rave reviews.
Of course, Nivin’s Action Hero Biju has been well appreciated but it was more of an experiment for the actor, whereas his character in Jacobinte Swargarajyam is within his comfort zone.
Will the loverboy unleash magic on screen once again?
