Mumbai: Kerala's entertainment network Asianet is all set to premiere four blockbuster films in April including "Minnal Murali," "Marakkar – Lion of the Arabian Sea," "Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan" and "Pushpa: The Rise."

Last year, Asianet presented blockbuster films such as "Drishyam 2," "Nayattu," "Joji," and "The Great Indian Kitchen." According to a statement, the channel has more than 1500 titles in its content library.

“We are focused on delivering high-quality entertainment to viewers and the addition of these blockbuster titles reiterates our commitment to delivering non-stop entertainment that resonates with them.  We are humbled by the response received from the Malayalam-speaking viewers to our content, and we will continue to strengthen Asianet’s library comprising of contemporary and quality films,” said an Asianet spokesperson.

Screened at the Mumbai Film Festival last year, "Minnal Murali," the first Malayalam superhero film received an astounding response from audiences. Penned down by Arun Anirudhan and Justin Mathew, the story revolves around the life of Jaison portrayed by Tovino Thomas, a young tailor who gains superpowers after being struck by lightning and transforms into a superhero. As he realises his superpowers, he starts to help people around him.

One of the most anticipated Malayalam movies, "Marakkar - Lion of the Arabian Sea" is a biopic on Kunjali Marakkar the fourth, who is considered one of the greatest naval chiefs of India. The movie is credited to be the most expensive film ever made in Malayalam cinema and bagged the Best Feature Film, Best Special Effects, and Best Costume awards at the 67th National Film Awards in October 2021.

Starring renowned artist Dileep, "Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan" is a humorous and feel-good family drama. Keshu, a 60-year-old driving tutor along with his family visits Rameswaram for his father’s funeral rites. Something unforeseen happens during the journey, which changes his life.

The biggest grosser of 2021, "Pushpa: The Rise" bagged the ‘Film of the Year’ accolade at Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2022.  Directed by Sukumar, the action thriller feature superstars Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna.
