However, ahead of the release the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has certified the film with U/A certificate. Shaitaan has reportedly undergone four changes and one cut. For the unversed, Shaitaan is a remake of the Gujarati movie Vash.

The story of the film revolves around black magic as the trailer hinted. The Censor Board has requested to add a voiceover that includes the disclaimer, the film does not support/endorse black magic. The board has also requested to Director Vikas Bahl to substitute an offensive term with a sound of screem. Shaitaan reportedly only received one cut.

CBFC directed the makers of a graphic scene to reduce the amount of blood dripping from the mouth by 25%. Another request is for the movie to include a message about alcohol consumption. Shaitaan’s runtime has been determined to be 132 minutes with these modifications.

In Shaitaan, Jyothika wiil be seen playing the role of Devgn’s wife, while R Madhavan will play the antagonist. Ajay and Madhavan were asked if they would consider switching roles during the trailer launch. Ajay acknowledged that he wasn’t excited to play the antagonist since he identified most with the feelings of the film’s helpless father.

Shaitan is directed by Vikas Bahl and is supported by Jio Studios, Devgn Films, and Panorama Studios in addition to being produced by Ajay Devgn, Jyoti Deshpande, Kumar Mangat Pathak, and Abhishek Pathak. The film, which is scheduled to open in theaters on March 8, 2024, promises to immerse audiences in the ongoing struggle between opposing factions.

Malayalam film industry crosses Rs 1,000 crore worldwide, Bollywood, Telugu films left struggling

Published

Malayalam film industry crosses Rs 1,000 crore worldwide, Bollywood and Telugu films are left struggling. The Malayalam film industry has surpassed the Rs 1,000 crore mark at the worldwide box office in 2024. This comes at a time when bigger industries like Bollywood and Telugu cinema are facing struggles with box office performance.

There have been a series of critically praised and commercially successful films this year. Movies like Manjummel Boys, Aadujeevitam, and Aavesham, which reportedly grossed over Rs 240.94 crore, Rs 157.44 crore, and 153.52 crore worldwide, and Guruvayoorambala Nadayil resonated with audiences, resulting in a growing collection from January to April 2024, which reached Rs 985 crore.

Last year, Mathrubhumi further reported that the industry had witnessed a total global gross of about Rs 500 crore with the success of films like Kannur Squad, RDX, Neru, and Romancham. Malayalam cinema has so far contributed 20 percent of India’s total gross collection in 2024, while Bollywood has contributed only 38 percent.

Malayalam cinema has been mentioned for its fresh storylines and willingness to experiment with genres. Some critics argue that Bollywood films have become standard and repetitive, relying heavily on big stars and exaggerated song-and-dance sequences. Telugu cinema, too, has faced criticism for its focus on larger-than-life action movies and star power over strong scripts.

This achievement marks an important moment for Malayalam cinema. It highlights the industry’s ability to produce exciting content that resonates with audiences not only in India but also globally. While the reasons behind the struggles of Bollywood and Telugu cinema are complex and warrant further examination, the contrasting fortunes of these film industries paint an interesting picture of the current trends in Indian cinema. It remains to be seen if the big-budget film industries can adapt and recapture their audiences’ attention, or if Malayalam cinema can sustain its momentum at the box office.
