Ranjith Ambady appreciated for presenting Nivin Pauly in four get-ups for Sakhavu
Nivin Pauly’s Sakhavu has not yet broke it’s successful opening run in theaters. The movie continues to run house full shows all over the state. The movie funded by B Rakesh under Universal Cinemas is directed by National Award achiever Siddharth Shiva. This political drama for Nivin comes after a long gap of an year.
One among the most evident reason for the movie to stand apart from the recent released flicks is it’s make up department managed by Ranjith Ambady. The four makeovers the makeup artist had performed to make Nivin look different in various time periods is worth a mention. Nivin is seen as Sakhavu Krishnan and Sakhavu Krishna Kumar in the flick. Sakhavu Krishnan is seen in three different get-ups showing different time spans as a teenager, middle aged man and an elderly old man. Nivin had given in an amazing act for the roles mentioned above, but what had stood apart was Ranjith’s brilliant work.
In overall for a movie, makeup always remains unnoticed and a thankless job. But here Ranjith Ambady had given his best to bring out Sakhavu Krishnan. Nivin made many feel like a guy next door with his realistic yet catchy performance. The scene in which Sakhavu Krishnan gets one side stroke is of special mention, the makeup portrayed beside his lips is such realistic and natural. A big hatsoff for Ranjith Ambady and his team for the amount of dedication put in.
Sakhavu cannot be just termed as a political drama, it has equal doses of romance, machismo and humour. Aparna Gopinath, Aishwarya Rajesh, Gayathri Suresh, Sreenivasan, Binu Pappu, Sudheesh, Althaf, Santhosh Keezhattoor and many others are also part of the cast.
