Pavada Review

Joy aka Pambu Joy (Prithviraj) is a chronic alcoholic. He is married to a nurse named Simi (Miya George). Even though Joy is a loving husband, his drinking habit badly affects their married life. Joy decides to go to a de-addiction center. There he meets Prof. Babu Joseph (Anoop Menon) aka Paavada Babu, another chronic alcoholic. They develop a special liking for each and soon becomes great friends. What happens in Joy and Babu's life forms the crux of the story...

Prithviraj excels as the chronic alcoholic Joy and mesmerizes with his amazing control over the comical and emotional sequences. Anoop Menon perfectly plays Paavada Babu, an aged alcoholic.

A perfect watch for the audiences, who love comical movies with a substance.

Another Quality film from prithviraj with nice concept ,good direction and superb performance by lead actors. Sure shot Hit.

Pavada is a tale of friendship shown from a different aspect, an unlikely friendship between two people, one old and one young. It’s the bottle which binds them up from vastly different socio-economic backgrounds.

A well executed promising story which discusses the friendship of a two people in a different aspect and also discusses about the ills of alcoholism. First half is a fully enterinter and second half deals with some emotional scenes.

A Good Family Comedy Entertainer. Worth Watching.
