New-generation Malayalam Cinema

“New-generation Malayalam cinema,” a coinage used to identify fi lms made after 2010 in Kerala, introduced innovative changes in the Malayalam cinema ecosystem through experiments in fi lm language, form, and storytelling. The new-generation fi lms are inclusive in their efforts to create conversations around caste, gender, and other marginalised communities that lacked representation in the mainstream cinema of the preceding decades. This article will attempt to scrutinise these changes and identify major interventions through a close reading of a selection of new-generation Malayalam fi lms that have been hailed by critics, scholars, practitioners, and audiences.
