The Kunchacko Boban starrer, which had its theatrical release on October 5, opened to mixed reviews from critics. The film is available on SonyLIV from November 24. Chaaver is streaming in dubbed versions in multiple languages - including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi.
What makes Chaaver a must-watch on OTT
Chaaver provides insight into the world of political supporters, shedding light on how they frequently become pawns in the broader political perspective. The story follows a group of individuals, who escape following a political murder and the consequences they face as a result.
In an interview with OTTplay earlier, Kunchacko had revealed how the film posed physical challenges for him, given that the role was different from what he had played before. This aspect stands as a compelling reason for viewers to engage with the political drama, as it offers a realistic portrayal of the character.
Despite criticism regarding the film’s pacing and intricate plot, viewers praised the film for its visuals and cinematography. The movie extensively captures scenes in Kannur and various locations in Tamil Nadu. Notably, the climax of the film, featuring an action sequence, stands out as one of its highlights.
Tinu Pappachan on why he doesn’t believe in pan-Indian movies
During a conversation with OTTplay, director Tinu opened up about his take on pan-Indian concept. “I am not someone who has much idea about this concept of ‘pan-Indian’ films. My belief is that we should do films that excite us. It shouldn’t matter whether it’s pan-Indian or pan-Asian. Chaaver is a film that would be relevant anywhere in the world. Because it’s set in Kerala, we chose Kannur as the main location”, the director elaborated.
