Directed by Tinu Pappachan, Chaaver, a political thriller with Kunchacko Boban in the lead role, is an eagerly-awaited Malayalam film. Chaaver, also starring Antony Varghese, Arjun Ashokan, Sajin Gopu, Manoj KU, and Anuroop P, will be released in theatres on October 5.

With one day left before the film hits the big screen, we list some reasons that will compel you to watch Chaaver in theatres:

  • Tinu Pappachan, a director known for making fast-paced movies
  • Tinu, the man behind films like Ajagajantharam and Swathanthryam Ardharathriyil, is back with his third film, Chaaver. Known for thrilling action sequences and vibrant frames, Tinu's previous films were box office successes. Having worked as an associate of Lijo Jose Pellissery, Tinu's directorial style is similar to his mentor's. Tinu's unique narrative approach sets his films apart. Kunchacko recently revealed in an interview that Chaaver is a Tinu Pappachan film through and through, so it should make for an exciting watch.

  • Kunchacko Boban gets a makeover for the film
  • Kunchacko has been stepping out of his comfort zone by taking on roles that challenge his usual image as a chocolate-boy hero. He has proven his versatility by playing serious characters, and he was recently recognised with a special jury mention at the 2023 Kerala State Awards for his performance in Nna Thaan Case Kodu. The actor's rugged appearance in Chaaver's trailer and BTS pictures from the sets have generated a lot of excitement. According to Kunchacko, he had to put on a significant amount of weight to convincingly play the character of Ashokan in Chaaver.

  • A gripping political thriller
  • Of late, political thrillers like Malik, Unda, and Eeda have been well received by viewers. However, Chaaver's trailer and promotional materials suggest that it is not only a political drama but an intense action film as well . In the era of online streaming, people still flock to theatres in search of a theatrical experience. As a thriller, Chaaver is bound to have moments that will make viewers cheer.

  • A realistic approach to a commercial film
  • The key to success in recent Malayalam films is finding the right balance between commercial appeal and a genuine storyline. Kannur Squad, featuring Mammootty in the lead, is the perfect example of blending commercial elements, such as fight scenes and gripping dialogue, with a realistic plot. Chaaver is also expected to portray real-life events.

  • Justin Varghese's music
  • Known for his quality compositions in films like Joji, Dear Friend, and Ajagajantharam, Justin has proven to be versatile in creating both fast-paced and melodious tracks. The music in Chaaver is influenced by traditional Kerala arts like Theyyam and Thira. Justin's intense tracks are sure to enhance the overall mood of the film.
