6 months, 58 films, just 7 hits so far in 2016

The first half of 2016 is coming to an end. So far 58 Malayalam films got released. But like the previous years, just a handful of movies made much more than the investment on them. According to the official records of Kerala Film Producers Association, there are only seven hit movies so far. They are, 'Action Hero Biju', 'Jacobinte Swargarajyam', 'Paavada', 'Maheshinte Prathikaaram', 'King Liar', 'Kali' and 'Happy Wedding'. Among the movies so far only 'Action Hero Biju' was able to make a century run in theaters, while JSR and King Liar are edging to that mark. The low production cost for 'Happy Wedding' was the reason to get itself registered as a money-spinner. While among new releases, 'Kammatipaadam' is almost certain to make it into the hit chart.
