First Day Collection of Sakhavu
Sakhavu starring Nivin Pauly in the lead role has made it to the theatres today (April 15, 2017). The film, directed by Sidhartha Siva is definitely one of the big movies of this summer season. Sidhartha Siva himself has penned the script for the movie. Sakhavu has been bankrolled by B Rakesh under the banner Universal Cinemas.
Nivin Pauly appears in dual roles, one as the young leader Krishnakumar and the other as Sakhavu Krishnan. The actor excels in the role of Krishnakumar aka Kichu and does it with effortless ease. He successfully evokes laughter in many of the sequences and the spontaneity in his performance is worth mentioning.
But, it was the role of Krishnan, which offered him good scope for performance. It was a decent performance from him as Krishnan but at the same time, he slips in some of the most important sequences in the movie, in the second half. Dialogue delivery at times looked a bit artificial.
After the good advance booking, Sakhavu started the opening day with 40-45% of occupancy across the country and witnessed decent rise from the evening shows. As per the report, the movie has done the good business of 1.42 crores* on Kerala box office and positively expected to show growth over the weekend.
