Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

All the loveable characters are back -- Alex the lion (Bin Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer) and Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), King Julien (Sacha Baron Cohen), Maurice (Cedric the Entertainer) and the penguins -- in "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa".

Left marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane -- sort of. Once the first flight of Air Penguin is aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all -- the vast plains of Africa, where the members of our New York City zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time.

While discovering their roots, they quickly realize the differences between the concrete jungle and the heart of Africa. Despite long-lost relatives, romantic rivals and scheming hunters, Africa seems like a "crack-a-lackin" great place...but is it better than their Central Park home?

Orkkuka Vallappozhum

Sohanlal, who won much acclaim with the tele-film 'Neermaathalathinte Pookkal', makes his directorial debut on the big screen with 'Orkkuka Vallappozhum'. With veteran actor Thilakan in the lead role, the film is a nostalgic trip into the past of an aged man.

Sethumadhavan's journey into his past begins when he undertakes a trip to a hill-station where stands an old bungalow. The hill-station and the bungalow take him to his past, into his early youth. Then Sethu shared a bond of intimacy with a girl named Paru, who incidentally had passed away years back. And now, in the present, Sethu comes face to face with memories of Paru and his early years.

The loneliness that he experiences in his life, on account of the death of his wife and also on account of his son being far away, in a foreign land, makes him seek refuge in memories of a past that meant much to him. While Thilakan plays Sethumadhavan, it's debutante Shilpabala who plays Paru. 'Goal' fame Rejith Menon plays the young Sethumadhavan.

Singer-actor Krishnachandran makes a comeback to films after a long time with 'Orkkuka Vallappozhum', which also has Chali Pala in a key role.


Lollypop', coming from hitmaker Shafi, is a youthful film, bringing together Prithviraj, Jayasurya and Kunchacko Boban, who were last seen together in 'Swapnakoodu'. Also giving them company are Roma and Bhavana. Wile Prithviraj plays Franko, a mechanic running an autmobile workshop. Roma is his sister, Jenny, while Jayasurya is Panji, a petty thief. Bhavana plays Franko's girlfriend.

The film is intended to be a colourful entertainer, like all Shafi movies.
