“Molly wood Industry” .

 In the recent times Malayalam movies have put huge effort to provide quality content over the screen as a result they have gained a huge amount of respect and attention towards them.

I would say major turning points of the Malayalam movies or Kolly wood industries are “Premam” and “Dhrishyam”.

These two movies turned the table to them side until then I am not sure even the so called Malayalam movies legends stars presence where no matter outside Kerala.

So a huge shout out to those two movie directors “Alphonse Puthren” and “Jeethu Joseph” there was so perfect output from these directors.

The major reason why there is a sudden growth of Malayalam movies from the theatre release to direct OTT release because they grabbed the different story lines, they get down into the characters like a story of fishermen, a story of cycle vendor store and they presented the story beautifully.

They also made use of their fantastic nature, climate, sunset, rain, house, culture, religious belief etc…

All these factors helped them to give a high quality and content movies as a result Malayalam movies got into the peak and still it is peak

IMDB rating:8.1

Duration:2hr 18minutes

Cast:Joju George,madhuri Braganza,athimya, malavika menon

OTT platform: Amazon Prime

Plot: A retired police officer who is well known for his crime investigations process resigns the job after his wife passes away after someday he gets trapped into organ harvesting criminal case.

Did he manage to come out of that case is the remaining plot of the movie. I guess no mainstream actor could play this role because a role called Joseph is completely alcoholic and chain smoker and a loser in martial life Joju George has nailed this character.

This movie first involves us with the journey of Joseph, as a result, this movie will be slow and need some patience as a viewer so once you pass that initial 1hr this movie will be a treat to watch all the departments in this movie is brilliant. So please watch this best Malayalam movie on Amazon prime with your family so there is no nudity or blood shaded in the movie
