One of the most common criticisms against Malayalam cinema today is the lack of mass films. There are widespread complaints that the Malayalam industry is still focused on content alone, while producing mass films that are popular across India, including Kannada cinema.
However, big budget films of top Malayalam stars are promising. Dulquer Salmaan’s King of Kota is the most hyped movie of late. Abhilash Joshi is the director of the film. Reports say that Aishwarya Lakshmi will play the lead role in the film, which will also feature Gokul Suresh.
The film has been building up a lot of hype over the past few days. The first poster of King of Kotha will be out on July 28, 2021, on Dulquer’s birthday. This poster went viral that day. Expectations about the film have risen with just one poster.

A year after the release of the first poster, the second poster of the film was released on October 1. That also created a big movement on social media. Dulquer’s high star value at the pan-Indian level after Sita Ram will also benefit the film.
