Sakhavu to have a massive release on April 15
Nivin Pauly is all set for his first release of the year. His highly anticipated political drama, Sakhavu is gearing up to hits screens this Vishu season on April 15. According to our sources close to the team, the movie will have a massive release in Kerala.
Sakhavu is directed by National award winner Sidharth Siva. The movie will have Nivin in the role of Krishnakumar, a communist supporter. The movie’s trailer revealed that Nivin will be seen in dual roles in the movie, as Krishnakumar and comrade Krishnan. Apparently, the latter’s portions are set in the 70s-80s timeline and the actor is sporting a different look for that role.
The makers of Sakhavu will be inspired by the humongous success of Tovino Thomas’s latest release Oru Mexican Aparatha. Also, Nivin is riding on the back of a string of blockbusters. That further heightens the expectations for Sakhavu.
Nivin Pauly had earlier informed that it will be an intense movie that will stay etched with the audience for a long time. It will not be just another political drama but will have equal doses of humour, romance and machismo.
Aparna Gopinath, Gayathri Suresh and Kollywood actress Aishwarya Rajesh are playing the female leads. Sreenivasan, Maniyan Pillai Raju, Joju George and many others are also part of the cast.
The movie’s audio launch function will be held tomorrow in Kochi. Prashanth Pillai, who has been receiving a lot of appreciation for his work in Angamaly Diaries, is handling the music department in Sakhavu.
Kollywood cinematographer George C Williams, who has wielded the camera in movies like Theri, Kaththi and Raja Rani is the DOP. B Rakesh has produced the movie under the banner Universal Cinema.
