The Malayalam film industry saw the release of two other films last week- "Manglish" directed by Salam Bappu was released on 27 July and "Hi I'm Tony" directed by Jean Paul Lal on 26 July. "Manglish" opened to mixed review from the audience as well as critics. The film, starring Mammootty in the lead is expected to pick up during the Eid holidays. Meanwhile, "Hi I'm Tony" did not impress the audience and had a poor opening compared to the other two releases.
