2018 is a highly anticipated movie in Malayalam cinema, and it is expected to be a fitting tribute to the brave people of Kerala who faced the devastation of the 2018 floods. And this fact is evident from the movie's tagline — everyone is a hero. The movie is set to open in cinemas on April 21 coinciding with the Eid celebration. 

The plot of the film revolves around the lives of a group of individuals who get stranded in a flooded region of Kerala during the 2018 floods. The movie portrays the courage and determination of the people who work together to overcome the challenges and hardships of the natural calamity.

The 2018 floods were one of the worst floods in the history of Kerala. The floods were caused by unusually heavy rainfall during the monsoon season, which led to massive flooding and landslides. The state witnessed 13 of its 14 districts affected by the floods, leading to the displacement of over 1.5 million people and the loss of over 400 lives.


The rescue and relief operations carried out by the Kerala government during the 2018 floods were widely appreciated, and many people came forward to help in various ways. The film, 2018, is a tribute to the brave and resilient people of Kerala who fought against all odds during the devastating floods.

The movie's teaser has already created a buzz among the Malayalam cinema audience, and the film is expected to become a box office hit. Jude Anthany Joseph, who has previously directed successful movies like Om Shanthi Oshaana and Oru Muthassi Gadha, has high hopes for the film. The movie's impressive star cast includes Tovino Thomas, Kalaiyarasan, Aparna Balamurali, Indrans, Aju Varghese, Kunchacko Boban, Vineeth Sreenivasan and Asif Ali.
