Kerala Box Office: Sakhavu Final Collection Report
Nivin Pauly’s Sakhavu has reached the end of it’s theatrical run. The movie, directed by Sidhartha Siva was released during the Vishu season. Eventhough Sakhavu managed to garner critical appreciation it could not manage a big opening in the box office. It’s failure to cash in big on the Vishu holidays had an impact in the overall run as the audience count was mostly mediocre thereafter.
According to latest reports from trade sources, Sakhavu has grossed Rs 14.20 crores from the Kerala box office. Nivin Pauly enjoys huge popularity outside Kerala but that could not help in the box office collections of Sakhavu. The movie is centred around communism and it’s ideologies, which appeals majorly to the Malayali audience.
Sakhavu features Nivin in a dual role, as Sakhavu Krishnan and Krishnakumar. Critics rated the actor’s performance as Sakhavu Krishnan as his career best. The movie also stars Aishwarya Rajesh, Aparna Gopinath, Gayathri Suresh, Sudheesh, Maniyan Pilla Raju, Sreenivasan, Binu Pappu and Baiju in pivotal roles.
Acclaimed Kollywood cinematographer George C Williams cranked the camera while music department is handled by Prashanth Pillai. B Rakesh bank rolled the movie under the banner Universal Cinema
