3. Aadu 2

Christmas 2017 clash: five Malayalam movies to compete

A sequel to a disastrous movie! Feels meh, right? But, this is what happening with Jayasurya’s Aadu 2. The humongous reception movie has got after the release of DVD might be the factor that motivated the makers to make a sequel to it. The movie, written and directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas, also stars Anson Paul, Vinayakan, Sunny Wayne, Dharmajan Bolgatty, and Saiju Kurup among others. The movie would amass a huge opening day gross from theatres for sure. However, the box-office fate of the movie is certainly unpredictable.
