Malayalam Movie 2011 Onam and Ramzan releases
The two festivals, Ramzan and Onam, being the biggest and most celebrated events in the region, see a good chunk of populations enjoying a reasonably long holiday season. Related to this is the number of people that are drawn to the movie theatres during this time.
After a wait of 5 long years, this year i.e. 2011, Ramzan will come before Onam. Going by the dates, this year Ramzan will fall on August 31, a Wednesday and following it after 9 days is Onam, which is falling on 8th September. So, looking at the holiday calendar, there is a stretch of 11 holidays combined during this period, which will result in a great impetus for the Malayalam film industry.
Trade experts say that any big banner movie that releases during this period is bound to attract a 15-20% more audience thereby stretching the profit margin for the producer. Following are the Malayalam movies and the tentative release dates during this period.
Teja Bhai and Family and Kuttichatan on August 26
Doctor Love on Auguest 27
Ulagam Sutram Valiban and Sevens on August 31
Pranayam on September 8
Mr. Marumagan on September 9.
