2017 was an extraordinarily eventful year in the history of Malayalam cinema. As much as the industry was shaken by controversies and scandals, it was also elated by blockbusters, great debuts, awesome debutants, chartbusters, and a few memorable comebacks that marked the arrival of a great and promising time for the audience of Malayalam movies. From low budget films which went on to make a mark at the box office to a few gems that won critical acclaim at the national and international level, Mollywood saw the best of Malayalam cinema in a year which couldn't be termed as a great one otherwise.

2017 for Malayalam films started on high note with movies such as Jomonte Suviseshangal, Ezra, Munthiri Vallikal Thalirkumbol, and The Great Father pulling the crowds to theatres in large numbers and taking over box office successfully. Lijo Jose Pelliserry's Angamaly Diaries and Mahesh Narayan's Take Off which are arguably the two of the best Malayalam movies fetched immense critical acclaim and praises and marked another milestone for Mollywood in 2017.

However, this powerful stride couldn't be continued by the later releases as the storm created by SS Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali 2 was so enormous and overpowering. The very few movies that held its ground in the Baahulbali storm such as Biju Menon's Rakshadikari Baiju: Oppu, Dulquer Salmaan's Comrade In America, Ranjith Sankar directorial Ramante Edenthottam, although couldn't be tagged under the best Malayalam movies of 2017, were definitely engaging and moving flicks.

The second part of the 2017 was marked with wonderful fares such as Tharangam, Mayaanadhi, Parava, Thondimuthalum Driksashiyum, and Njandukalude Naattil Oridevela which were characterized by performances and stories par excellence and showed brilliance and boldness in making and style, breaking away from the mediocre and the conventional. Here is our list of best Malayalam movies of 2017 which are commercially successful and critically acclaimed.
