While "Paranthu" and "Maya Bazaar" didn't do well at the box office, the success of other three films helped the veteran actor to remain on top seat.

But the superstar says his biggest achievement this year is that he completed two films - "Pazhazzi Raja" and "Kuttishrank" .

"The shooting schedules of 'Pazhazzi Raja' and 'Kuttishrank' are over and I'm really excited and happy because I have high hopes from both the films. They will be released in 2009," said Mammootty.

Asked about a New Year resolution, he said: "I know only one job and that is acting and I will continue to do that."

Although he gave hits, he didn't receive any awards this year, but the actor is unperturbed.

"Haven't I told you many times that I take pride in my job and I would continue to do it the way I have done it all these years. I am not worried about other things," he said.

The superstar is off to Dubai Monday to attend the Dubai International Film Festival where his film "Orae Kadal" is being screened.

Nayarambalam. This year, the duo has given Mammootty one of the biggest hits in recent times, Annan Thampi. A couple of other films like Thommanum Makkalum and Mayavi featuring Mammootty have been big hits.

Shafi and Benny P. Nayarambalam have again come up with a funny catchy name for this venture, Mallanum Mathevanum. These are the names of the characters in a children’s story in Malayalam, so the title gives the feel of a simple, clean and humorous film. Details about the theme, cast etc. are yet to be divulged.

The film will be produced by A.B.S. combines which is formed recently by Shafi, Benny P. Nayarambalam and production controller Anto Joseph. It's learnt that the film may start rolling in the first half of 2009. The banner's first film Lollypop has just completed shooting.

Vandemataram will not be for X'mas Race

The release of the Tamil and Malayalam bilingual Vande Mataram (Malayalam)/ Aruvadai (Tamil), starring Mammootty and Arjun, is postponed.

Slated for a Christmas release, it is failing to take off at the right time due to a snag in shooting. Some of the scenes which were to be completed earlier are still incomplete, forcing the producer to delay the release further.

It is heard that the crew failed to get permission in time to shoot at the Air Force Academy resulting in the delay. Sneha, Jagadish and Jai Akash play pivotal roles.

This was the only big budget film to be released for Christmas in Kerala. Now, with the postponed release, it seems that Malayalees will have to be content with the small budget films that will be releasing in this season.

Mammootty to start finishing work of Pazhassiraja

Pazhassi Raja, the forthcoming biopic magnum opus historical film directed by Hariharan with Mammootty in the lead role, was supposed to be released in April 2008 during Vishu. Unfortunately, it was postponed since the shooting had to be called off more than five times since it started in 2007.

Untimely heavy rains, clashes in the dates of the artists and the accidental death of two crew members had resulted in constant delays in shooting Pazhassi Raja. Anyway, megastar Mammootty is now all determined to complete the movie within three weeks. Mammootty has earmarked nearly three weeks to complete the final schedule at Madikkeri in Karnataka.

In Pazhassi Raja, Mammootty, who had played the hero in Hariharan's previous historical venture Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha (1989), plays the title role as Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja, popularly known as the Lion of Kerala, a king in the 18th century from the Kottayam royal family. Suman plays the villain Pazhaiveetan Chandu and Tamil actor Sarath Kumar plays Edachena Kunkan, the chief lieutenant of Pazhassi Raja.

After Pazhassi Raja, Mammootty will join the final schedule of director Shaji N. Karun's prestigious venture Kutty Shranku at Kandhapuram. The film is produced by Reliance Entertainment under the banner of Big Motion Pictures, the first-ever Malayalam production by Anil Ambani's entertainment company.
