Film-goers in Kerala are all set to welcome the Vishu-Easter releases after a seriously dull first quarter when only two films became hits.

Mammootty’s Gangster hits the screens today and the rest will follow in the next two days.

Mohanlal stays away from the race, without any new releases this season.

Here is a look at the five new Vishu releases:


Director: Aashiq Abu

Cast: Mammootty, Nyla Usha, Aparna Gopinath

Superstar Mammootty is a tough talking don in director Aashiq Abu’s Gangster. The actor, who is usually reluctant to play his age, has allowed himself to age somewhat as Akbar Ali Khan.

The film has been given an A certificate by the censor board.

Aashiq Abu, who is also the producer of Gangster, has been avoiding the media and has managed to market the film through his Facebook page.

Nyla Usha and Aparna Gopinath play the female leads. Alby is the cinematographer, and Deepak Dev scores the music.

Ring Master

Director: Rafi

Cast: Dileep, Honey Rose, Keerthi Suresh

Popular hero Dileep plays an animal trainer in this family entertainer that will particularly appeal to kids.

Prince (Dileep) takes his dog for a film shooting. But there is a hitch: the dog’s name and the heroine’s name is the same - Diana.

Honey Rose and Keerthi Suresh are the heroines.

Ring Master has been produced by Vaishakh Rajan. Shaji is the cinematographer and Gopi Sundar is the music director.

7th Day

Debutant director Shyam Dhar teams up with Prithviraj, who plays a 42-year-old ex-cop named David Abraham.

The film, written by debutant Akhil Paul, is a thriller.

The story is a crime-drama that occurs over seven days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

David Abraham has been thrown out of the police department and is chasing up an incident on his own.

7th Day has been produced by Shibu G Suseelan. Sujith Vassudevv wields the camera and Deepak Dev is the music director.
