Media reports that malayalam movie Producers Association, announced that Malayalam film directors and producers have unanimously reached a decision to make six low-budget films, each costing 1.50 crores in 2009 and 2010, casting only artistes from the film industry.

One thing is sure that non of the Malayalam super stars will act in those movies ,since they are charging nearly that amount ,if not more for each movies.Media says that Superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal charging a price of Rs. 15 million and allocate a maximum shooting period of 60 days per film.

They will charge hefty amount and the poor producers will suffer after the inevitable flop!!
There is no logic behind giving this much fee for mega stars of Malayalam movies,since the reach of Malayalam movies is very limited.

The much awaited mammootty movie Pazhassi Raja, a historical venture is being made at a budget of Rs. 500 million, while the latest Mohanlal starrer Kurukshetra was a Rs. 200-million movie.

Both Mammootty and Mohanlal are among India's best actors ,but the Malayalam movie industry or mollywood has no advantage with mega flops!

Director R. Sukumaran's multi-starrer movie Yugapurushan will start from the first week of January.
The movie is based on the life and times of Sree Narayana Guru (1856-1928).
Sree Nārāyana Guru Swami, was a saint, sage, prophet and social reformer of Kerala.The Guru was born into an Ezhava family, in an era when people from backward communities faced severe social injustices in the Kerala society.
Gurudevan,revolted against casteism and worked on propagating values of freedom in spirituality and of social equality, thereby transforming the Kerala society.
He is widely respected as a prophet, saint, sage and social reformer of Kerala.

Initially megastar Mammootty was considered the title role of Sree Narayana Guru. However, Mammootty, decided to gracefully withdraw from the role, stating that he may not be the right choice.The picture of Sri Narayana Guru is very famous in Kerala and Mammootty believes that he can hardly substitute the original looks and grace of of Narayana Guru.But he offered to play another the role in the movie so as to make up for not doing the title role.
The search for a fresh face to play Guru is still continuing.
Mohanlal also acts in the movie and doing the role of Swami Vivekanda.

Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan, one of the most respected politicians in India who belongs to the rare group of politicians, whom common man still love to call 'leader'.

In an article published in the Pachakuthira magazine, Kerala Sahitya Academy Chairman M Mukundan was quoted as calling VS an "outdated saint".After reading that, the first thing that comes to mind is few incidents happened during the last kerala assembly elections.
The massive SMS campaign for VS when VS denied seat in the assembly elections.
The group of software engineers in New York who set up a website on him. They believed that VS was not against development and technology. VS proved that by signing Smart City project and making it a reality.
He was always 'The Leader of the Masses'.

As once published in Indian express about his reading habits,
Read V S Achuthanandan: No movies for 30 years, no school beyond Class 7, his first job was weaving coir mattresses

One of his a senior colleague at Deshabhimani says,
'I once asked him why he, who loves to read so much, dropped out so early. He said he could have continued even without buying books but just didn’t have the strength to starve in school every day.'

He became the first Communist CM to visit the 800-year-old hill temple of Sabarimala.
The 84-year-old Achuthanandan rejected all sort of physical or medical support. It was the doctors who struggled to catch up with him while trudging non-stop three hours on foot.

As VS replied to Mukundan's allegations
"I am 85 years old now and I believe in 1848 ideology. So naturally I am outdated, I am outdated, but proud of the ideology that I follow"

He also said "The preachers of capitalism always termed Communists as obsoletes from the time of Marx."
He asked "whether the values of truth, justice, unity and mercy will expire with time?”
If yes, then, yes, VS is an 'Outdated saint'.

Now shout dear readers Is VS is an 'outdated saint’?

The fight among the technicians and directors of Malayalam movie industry, reminds us a never ending comedy serial.
It seems like the current problem is to find an answer for an irrelevant question 'Who is the big B of Malayalam cinema (technicians) industry'.
First of all common man has lost all interest in the ongoing drama and now they are watching as if it is like a comedy movie.
Days back the Federation of Malayalam Cine Technicians Association (MACTA) (a rebel?/official? faction of technicians in the Malayalam film industry) has filed a complaint with the Ernakulam chief judicial magistrate alleging that Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA)(a rebel?/official? faction of technicians in the Malayalam film industry). But God only knows which organisation is 'rebel' and which is 'official'.
FEFKA, which was formed after a dispute in director Vinayan led MACTA, is recognized by the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA).

The only good thing recently happened in Malayalam Movie industry is 'Twenty 20'. The movie is doing well and it already broke all the collection records as expected.
