Aavesham starring Fahadh Faasil has already been named the 2024 Vishu winner. The action comedy film, which has undoubtedly outperformed the other Vishu releases of the year, achieved blockbuster status due to its excellent reviews and ability to draw large crowds to theatres. According to recent reports, Aavesham joined the ₹100-crore club in Malayalam cinema less than two weeks after its theatrical release.
