Nivin Pauly is all set to entertain the Malayalam film audiences, with his upcoming release Sakhavu, which will be opening big at the theatres tomorrow (April 07, 2017).

It has been more than a year since we last saw a Nivin Pauly film onscreen and Sakhavu promises to be a powerful movie of the actor, who has etched a place in the minds of the Kerala audiences.

Before Sakhavu: Box Office Analysis Of Nivin Pauly’s Previous 5 Movies!

Expectations are sky high on Sakhavu, which has Nivin Pauly in dual roles. The actor is expected to deliver another big blockbuster, with this film, directed by Sidhartha Siva.

Before the release of Sakhavu, we take you through an analysis on the box office performances of Nivin Pauly's previous 5 movies.

Jacobinte Swargarajyam (2016)

Jacobinte Swargarajyam, was the actor's previous release. The film came out in April 2016 and it was the most accepted movie of the Vishu season of the year 2016. The film received generally positive reviews with the family audiences giving thumbs up for the movie. The movie was the highest grossing movie of 2016 till Oppam and Pulimurugan released. Jacobinte Swargarajyam is expected to have a done a business of around 25 Crores.

Box Office Verdict: Blockbuster

Action Hero Biju (2016)

Action Hero Biju was the actor's next release after his career defining film Premam. The movie had a rather dull start, with negative reviews pouring in. Later, the film had a dream run at the box office. Despite facing a stiff competition from Maheshinte Prathikaaram, Action Hero Biju made a mark of its own at the box office and in the final run grossed more than Maheshinte Prathikaaram at the worldwide box office.

Box Office Verdict: Blockbuster

Premam (2015)

We all know about the magic that this film created at the box office. After a decent opening, the film grew with largely positive word of mouth. In the initial few weeks of the movie, it was rather difficult to get the tickets for the movie. The movie raced ahead to the 50-Crore club and was second only to Drishyam, at that time. In fact, Premam also had a fantabulous run in other states, making Nivin Pauly a popular face in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka etc.

Box Office Verdict: Blockbuster

Ivide (2015)

Ivide was a multi-starrer and it had Nivin Pauly playing an equally important role, along with Prithviraj. Interestingly, Ivide and Premam got released on the same day and disappointingly the former couldn't create any impact at the box office. The film failed to take off at the box office at any time. While audiences accepted Premam, they disowned Ivide.

Box Office Verdict: Flop

Oru Vadakkan Selfie (2015)

There might be two opinions regarding the quality of the movie, but there is no denying the fact that it was a runaway success at the box office. Nivin Pauly was at his comfort zone playing the role of Umesh and the film made the necessary impact at the box office from Day 1 onwards. Youngsters and family audiences lapped up the movie, as the film grossed above 20 Crores, despite superstar movies like Ennum Eppozhum and Bhaskar The Rascal offering stiff competitions. Oru Vadakkan Selfie even went on to complete 100 days of run in Kochi multiplexes.

Box Office Verdict: Blockbuster


Well, Nivin Pauly has had a dream run at the box office with 4 of his previous 5 movies emerging as big money spinners at the box office. Only Ivide, failed to make an impact at the box office.

Interestingly, Sakhavu is expected to be a film quite different from the actor's previous movies. Nivin Pauly movies do hold a minimum guarantee and we hope that Sakhavu would be another feather in the cap of Nivin Pauly. We wish the entire team of the movie all the very best.
