Movies This week: Katamarayudu

In the last few weeks, quite a few non-commercial, low budget movies have struck a chord with the audience. Malayalam movie Angamaly diaries is one among the many examples. The movie starring 86 newcomers was based on the local people of Angamaly. This unusual gem of a movie, directed by  Lijo Jose Pellissery had superstars from Mollywood stars, Mohanlal, Prithviraj singing its praises. Another such movie that turned out an unexpected hit was Maanagaram  starring Sundeep Kishan, Regina Cassandra and Sri. It was based on 4 people who somehow crossed paths because of kidnapping incident. The movie was praised for its gripping crime story. It marked the debut of Lokesh Kanagaraj. While these movies are faring well at the box office, it’s time for a grand commercial release and what better movie than Pawan Kalyan’s Katamarayudu
