Sakhavu Review

Sakhavu is not a whole new story as there are many films came previously on the platform of communism or student leaders. But, the intent is very clear and it is an eye-opener with an inspiring tale. Editing has to be done even better as the movie run time is greater than 2h 40m which test your patience.

Nivin Pauly again steals the show with his unpredictable performances in both characters. The first Krishnakumar character is the ease which Nivin done regular in previous movies. But he showcased his actor in Sakhavu Krishnan character with a decent performance and it will be remember for some time. Aishwarya Rajesh also done dual characters and gave her 100% to both the characters.
