For the entertainment industry, festive months mean big money. Although the ongoing tiff between Kerala Film Producers Association (KFPA) and Kerala Film Exhibitors Federation (KFEF) over the sharing of theatre collection has cast a cloud whether the movies could be released, there are some big releases awaiting to hit theatres.
And since it's Christmas, we see a lot of movies are based on Christian themes, with the hero playing typical male Kerala Christian affectionately called 'Achayan' in Malayalam. 'Achayan' could be any elder male member of the family who is a happy go lucky beer bellied middle aged man of affluent families hailing from either from Central Travancore or hilly high range.
