Kerala Box Office: Nivin Pauly's winning streak continues as Sakhavu opens to positive response

Nivin Pauly's Sakhavu has been praised for the performances. It looks like the actor is on his way to deliver another hit movie

Nivin Pauly’s Vishu gift to his fans Sakhavu released today. Directed by Sidhartha Siva and produced by B Rakesh under the banner of Universal Cinema, the film stars Nivin Pauly in dual roles as a young leader Krishnakumar and Sakhavu Krishnan. The film, a campus political entertainer, stars Gayathri Suresh, Aparna Gopinath and Aishwarya Rajesh in female lead roles.

Surprisingly, Sakhavu has taken an extremely good opening at the Kerala Box Office. The film was expected to take an average opening as the promotions for the film was not up to the mark compared to Nivin Pauly’s previous films. But once again, the ‘Nivin Pauly’ stardom has worked for the film as the film has opened to excellent occupancy across the cinemas of Kerala. Also, Sakhavu is Nivin Pauly’s first film in a lead role since Action Hero Biju, which had released in February 2016. The excellent opening during morning/noon shows along with the good advance booking for the evening/night shows prove that Nivin Pauly might get his biggest opener till date with Sakhavu.
