Based on the Kerala floods, the Malayalam survival drama 2018, has surpassed Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan, which had held the record since 2016, to become the highest-grossing Malayalam movie ever. The Jude Anthany Joseph movie officially entered the 150 crore club on Saturday.
Tovino Thomas, Kunchako Boban, Asif Ali, Vineeth Srinivasan, Aparna Balamurali, and Kalaiarasan are among the actors who appear in the movie, which was also dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi on Friday.
P S Sreekala, the director and writer of Kerala’s Knowledge Economy Mission, gave the movie a harsh review a week after it had been released. She said in a Facebook post that the movie was based on fabrications and lies. She went on to say that the filmmaker ought to have done proper research. She stated in the post that the chief minister is portrayed in the movie as being powerless despite the fact that he was leading the rescue efforts.
According to Sreekala’s essay, which was quoted by Onmanorama, “Presentation of half-truths is as hazardous and scandalous as propaganda. Technology advancement has had a significant positive impact on the cinema industry. Some films don’t need to be celebrated in this setting. Contrarily, it would be a shame not to make use of such options given the content. But if the filmmaker is skilled in their art, it is a good strategy to use the best technology to make cinema into a strategy that is even more effective. That tactic has been well used in the movie by Jude Anthany. This film, the filmmaker was overheard stating, was the result of his guilt.
