Malayalam watchlist for June 2024

Two major Malayalam movies—Turbo and Guruvayoor Ambala Nadayil—released in May are still running successfully in theatres in Kerala and overseas.

Prithviraj Sukumaran-Basil Joseph’s Guruvayoor Ambala Nadayil collected ₹50 crore in just five days, while Mammootty’s Turbo grossed ₹50 crore in less than a week.

The big-budget Malayalam film earned around ₹6 crore worldwide on the opening day.

Meanwhile, Asif Ali-Biju Menon’s Thalavan opened to a positive response at the box office.

Films like Perumani, Sureshanteyum Sumalathayudeyum Hridhayahariyaya Pranayakadha, and Mandakini also received a good response from audiences.

However, there are comparatively no big releases in Malayalam in June. Given the promotional material, small films like Grrr and Nandanna Sambavam are expected to entertain the audience though.

Let’s check the Malayalam watchlist for June 2024:

EXCLUSIVE: Working on ‘Turbo’ was a challenging experience, says Kannada actor Raj B Shetty


Grrr is a brand new movie featuring Kunchako Boban and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead.

The hilarious teaser showcases Kunchako Boban’s character jumping into the den of a lion named Darshan at the Trivandrum Zoo.

The film is helmed by director Jay K, who debuted with the horror movie Ezra (2017), a box-office success.

It is scripted by Jay K and Praveen S.

Director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval is the production designer.
