Story: Nivin Pauly portrays two different roles in Sakhavu. He appears as Krishnakumar, a student leader and also as Sakhavu Krishnan, a strong leader from the past. The actor will be seen in different get-ups in the movie.

Sakhavu revolves around a student political leader who fights for his left-wing ideals. He takes everything as an advantage to showcase his political nature and get the appreciation from people around him. Even he uses his political strategy in the love. He doesn’t even care, anybody, when it comes to his position as a threat. When some people try to use him in order to fulfil their intentions he is forced to fight for his ideals.

Review: The movie is approach comedy in the first half as being a student political leader. But in the second half, it turns violent with some action scenes and political drama and the logic which shows Nivin Pauly in a great role is the attraction. The movie has many things which you can expect but Nivin’s performance as a veteran Sakhavu Krishnabhaskar and as a young, wayward comrade Krishna Kumar, is very much convincing.

The film can be called as a complete entertainer, a perfect mix of mass and class. The film has the adequate amount of humour also and Nivin was perfect in executing humorous scenes. Nivin Pauly is spotted in the film in more getups than seen in the trailer. Sakhav flows with a smooth pace and never felt any lag even the climax of the film was also good.
