Mollywood on strike but shooting continues

All the mid-November releases have been postponed to Christmas

Kerala, the land of coconuts, has now gained the notoriety of becoming the Land of Strikes. Hartals have become a common thing in the state. The latest victim of this phenomenon is the film industry. Latest reports suggest that almost all sections, ranging from production, distribution and exhibition of Malayalam films, have been paralysed by the ongoing strikes in the industry. All the mid-November releases have been postponed to Christmas. Mammootty’s Venicile Vyapari and Mohanlal’s Arabiyum Ottakavum…, which were supposed to hit the screens this weekend, too have been delayed. Releasing a film after mid November and before Christmas is not usually considered a good idea in Mollywood as the Sabarimala season would be at its peak and also exams would mar the business. The good news is that Christmas will have much-anticipated films landing on screen but the bad news is that the much hyped King v/s Commissioner and Casanova would be delayed further.

But some producers are continuing to shoot their films, unaffected by the strike. Kerala Cinema Minister KB Ganesh Kumar reportedly said that the government had not received any notice of the strike.
