Dileep-Jeethu Joseph's much awaited film "Life of Josutty" hit theatres on Thursday, 24 September, as a Bakrid treat to Kerala audience.
The film, which is the second outing of the actor-director duo after the hit film "My Boss" in 2012, is one of the most expected family entertainers of the year.
Asif Ali's "Kohinoor" is set to lock horns with "Life of Josutty" at the Malayalam box office. However, Mammootty's "Pathemari", which was scheduled to be released on Thursday has been postponed.
When IBTimes India asked fans "Who will emerge as the winner at the Kerala box office" through an online survey, majority said that "Life of Josutty" will be the winner.
Out of 100 people who participated in the poll, about 63% respondents expect Dileep starrer to become a box office success, while only 21% and 16% respondents were in favour of "Pathemari" and "Kohinoor" respectively.
The film, which also has Jyothi Krishna, Krishna Prabha, Aqsa Bhatt, Suraj Venjarammoodu and Sunil Sukhada in pivotal roles, has been tagged as a feel good film by movie-goers.
Check out the live audience response of "Life of Josutty" below:
#LifeOfJosutty 3/5. Mixed bag. Great first half but #JeethuJoseph slips post interval, as the story plods with a contrived feel good climax. #Dileep fantastic as he chronicles life and times of hero. New girls Rachana & Jyothi r adequate with Harish standing out. Great Kerala lush green locations in Idukki district looks better than NewZeland countryside, fab camera & very good DI. #Jeethu has tried out an autobiographical story with family sentiments & no twists or turns. Give me #Drishyam any day. PS - #JeethuJoseph in his interviews had made it clear that #LifeOfJosutty a family story should not be compared to #Drishyam a thriller.
#LifeOfJosutty is lifelessjosutty, half baked story narration and unimaginative screenplay from @jeethu007 spoils the movie big time.
Feel good movie.Jeethu did well.Dileep livd as josutty.Outstandin Cinematography. On d Negative side its the story (2.5/5) #LifeOfJosutty
Had a beautiful voyage through the #LifeOfJosutty. Plenty of emotions.. Dileep excels as Josutty.. Simply a life.. Loved it.. Cinematography of the movie is excellent.. Scenic beauty.. Beauty of Kerala in first half and New Zealand in the second half. #LifeOfJosutty
#Lifeofjosutty(2/5) is overly stretched & lacks d emotional depth.Narrative structure wasn't much impressive and movie seemed 2 be focusless. Story plot Has some similarities too with balachandra menons vivahithare ithile and renjiths kadal kadannoru mattukutty.

Life of Josutty
Thoroughly disappointed with Jeethu Joseph's #LifeOfJosutty. Renjith's 'Kadal Kadannoru Mathukutty' was slightly better
First half awesome
