Film industries across the world have come to a standstill due to this global pandemic but we are hopeful that things will get back to normal pretty soon. Malayalam cinema, which has always given us extraordinary films, is sure going to surprise us with a bunch of beautiful movies after the lockdown as well. From Mammootty’s One to Mohanlal’s magnum opus Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, here are some of the Malayalam movies to look forward to after the lockdown.


This film starring Mammootty in the lead is a political thriller written by Bobby & Sanjay. The duo has always surprised us with excellent scripts and this one also will be interesting. The cherry on top is the Megastar Mammootty himself, who has entertained us over decades. The film that also features a stellar cast is going to be quite engaging, we are sure.


This crime-drama is definitely something to look forward to for two reasons –Fahadh Faasil, one of the best actors of our times and the director Mahesh Narayan who debuted with an extraordinary Take Off. The film also has a bunch of amazing talent and seems to be quite alluring.


Inspired from a real-life incident, this film revolves around Sukumara Kurup, an eluding criminal who is on a run after committing a heinous murder. Srinath Rajendran, who made Dulquer Salmaan’s debut film Second Show, is directing this one as well, with the latter appearing in the titular role. Dulquer Salman has gone through a stunning makeover for the film, and the plot looks interesting to be worth the wait.

Aadu Jeevitham

If you have read Benyamin’s novel of the same name, you would know Aadu Jeevitham is going to be amazing. With Blessy as director, Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead with a challenging physical transformation for the role, K U Mohanan handling the camera and A R Rahman, composing the music, the film looks super exciting and our expectations are high.

Halal Love Story

This film, that seems to be a comedy, is directed by Zakariya Muhammed who gave us Sudani from Nigeria. With an extraordinary debut, he has proved his mettle. Plus, this film has some very talented actors including Indrajith Sukumaran, Soubin Shahir, Joju George and Grace Antony who, we are sure, is not going to disappoint us. We are totally looking forward to this one.

Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham

The most anticipated film of the year, which was supposed to release in March, unfortunately, got postponed due to the pandemic. This period war film that depicts the story of Marakkar IV stars Mohanlal in the lead. It also features an ensemble cast that includes various stars in the Indian film industry. This film is going to be extremely thrilling to watch and a super-duper hit, we are a 100% certain!
