cast & crew
Nivin Pauly As Krishnakumar/Krishnan
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.
Aishwarya Rajesh As Janaki
Aishwarya Rajesh portrays Janaki, wife of Sakhavu Krishnan. She is a real talent and does justice to both the younger and older versions of her character. At the same time, the character remains underdeveloped in the movie.
Gayathri Suresh As Aishwarya
Actress Gayathri Suresh appears as Aishwarya, a nurse working in the government hospital. The actress has nothing much to do in the movie and appears in only very few sequences of the movie.
Aparna Gopinath As Neeti
We all know Aparna Gopinath caliber as an actress and in Sakhavu, she gets to play the role of Neeti, daughter of Sakhavu Krishnan. She excels in her role and look out for the police station sequence where she simply steals the show.
Sreenivasan As Doctor
Sreenivasan makes a smashing entry in the movie, with a powerful sequence. But that particular sequence remains the only noteworthy scene for the actor in him. He was side-lined in what could be called as a guest appearance.
