Binu Pappu, the police officer in Sakhavu is late actor Kuthiravattam Pappu’s son
Nivin Pauly starrer Sakhavu was released yesterday (April 15) to great response from the audience. Critics have also rated this political drama as a good watch despite having it’s share of flaws.
The movie, directed by Sidhartha Siva features Nivin in a dual role as Krishna Kumar and Sakhavu Krishnan. The plot is about how Sakhavu Krishnan’s life brings a positive change in Krishna Kumar, an opportunistic new gen politician.
The movie stars a host of supporting actors in Aishwarya Rajesh, Aparna Gopinath, Maniyanpilla Raju, VK Prakash, Binu Pappu Sudheesh, Santhosh Keezhattoor, Sreenivasan, Baiju, Gayathri Suresh and many others. One of the most notable performances among them was that of Binu Pappu’s.
Sakhavu Krishnan’s story is initally narrated through Binu Pappu’s character Prabhakaran. It is a solid character that has shades of grey. SI Prabhakaran is initally against Sakhavu Krishnan and his party. At a particular point, he undergoes a transformation to turn a good person. He later becomes a very close friend of Sakhavu Krishnan and stands by him in all adversities.
Binu Pappu, is the son of late actor Kuthiravattam Pappu. He has previously played a breif role in Aashiq Abu’s Rani Padmini. His performance in Sakhavu is praiseworthy and has grabbed quite a few eyeballs. His voice modulation and change in body language in the two timelines is indeed commendable.
With Sakhavu, Binu Pappan has proven his skills as an actor. If cast in meaty roles in the future, he will certainly be an asset to the Malayalam film industry.
