Sakhavu teaser: Nivin Pauly’s comrade will remind you of Mohanlal in the early ’90s

Nivin Pauly is the busiest and the most in-demand young star in Malayalam cinema right now, thanks to his successive streak of hits. For the first time, he is collaborating with actor-director Sidhartha Siva for his upcoming satirical entertainer, Sakhavu. The makers have released the teaser of the movie, which actually doesn’t show much, except for the fact that we hear a few people say the word ‘Sakhavu’ while the screen is black.

It’s only in the final moments of the teaser that we see Nivin Pauly, and in just one glance, he will remind you of the many humourous characters Mohanlal played in the late ’80s and the early ’90s. Whether it is the body language or his facial expressions, we can’t pinpoint what it is that reminds us of the megastar. And then the teaser ends, leaving us wanting for more. And yeah, the teaser also mentions that Sakhavu will release on April 15, around Vishu, so there’s that.

Watch the teaser here…

Sakhavu also stars Aishwarya Rajesh, Gayathri Suresh, Aparna Gopinath, Renji Panicker, KPAC Lalitha, Joju George, Sudheesh and Sreenivasan. So are we looking at Nivin Pauly’s first hit of 2017?
