2014 - Stars and upcoming talent to rule Malayalam Cinema

By Haricharan Pudipeddi, Chennai, Dec 31 : Along with an interesting line up of films for next year, works of a new breed of Malayalam actors and filmmakers will also rule the roost in the New Year.

Malayalam cinema didn't hesitate to go against the grain with offbeat films such as "Mumbai Police", "Shutter" and "Drishyam" this year. Next year, it will further push the envelope with similar films.

Everybody in the industry is eagerly waiting for filmmaker Roshan Andrews's "How Old Are You", which will re-launch actress Manju Warrier almost after a decade.

Actor Fahadh Faasil, who had 12 releases this year, has psychological thriller "1 by two" up his sleeve. He has also teamed up with filmmaker Lijo Jose Pellissery for the second time in "Antichrist" after "Amen".

Dulquer Salmaan, who impressed audiences with four films, has two films "Salala Mobiles" and "Vaaya Moodi Pesuvum" lined up with co-star Nazriya Nazim.

Superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal, who faced highs and lows with their films this year, hope to prove their star status with their films.

Mohanlal, who has about five films in his kitty, will kick start the New Year with Tamil film "Jilla" with Tamil superstar Vijay.

Prithviraj Sukumaran, who has tasted success in cop roles in the recent past, will don the khakee for the sixth time in a row in action-thriller "Seventh Day", while Dileep, who scored two hits "Sound Thoma" and "Singaravelan", has two yet-untitled projects gearing up for release.
