'Vadakkumnathan' still tops Malayalam filmsJun 13, 2006 Paresh C. Palicha
Kochi, June 14 (IANS) A couple of minor releases in the last fortnight - "Nottam" and "Kisan" - appear on the top five Malayalam list. Otherwise it was an uneventful period with "Vadakkumnathan" maintaining its lead.
The top five are:
1. "Vadakkumnathan" - It seems Mohanlal's box-office fortunes have revived. His performance has earned all-round appreciation and music by the late Raveendran has helped the film as well.
2. "Rasathantram" - This is again a Mohanlal film with his pairing with Meera Jasmine as the high point. Directed by Sathyan Anthikkad, the film is still drawing sizeable crowds.
3. "Balram Vs Tharadas" - Mammootty in a double role depicting two characters from two of his earlier films, one a hero and the other a villain, has given the film a marathon run.
4. "Nottam" - This offbeat film, directed by Sasi Paravoor, starring Nedumudi Venu, provides glimpses of the ancient art form of Koodiyattam and has won plaudits from sections of the audience.
5. "Kisan" - Directed by veteran Sibi Malayil, it stars Biju Menon and Kalabhavan Mani. The film was lying in the cans for quite some time and was released last weekend. It is still too early to say how far it will go.
