Superstar Suresh Gopi’s most awaited film ‘Kaaval’ directed by Nithin Renji Panicker was released on the big screens on November 25. Ever since the release date of the movie was announced, the fans of the superstar were going gaga over it. Scripted by Nithin, the story is about two friends-turned-foes and the changes in their lives over two decades. Suresh Gopi and Renji play the main protagonists – Thampan and Antony. Set in two periods of time, Kaaval tracks the timeline of the two main characters as they go through the ups and downs of their businesses and life. Going by the audience's review on social media, the movie has opened to mixed responses. While the audience gets to celebrate the action avatar of Suresh Gopi, the story and direction are said to be outdated. As promised by the makers of the movie, Kaaval is a film that protects the image of Suresh Gopi as an action hero. For every Suresh Gopi fan, the director has craftily shot several scenes that would connect one back to Suresh Gopi's glorious days from the 90s.

‘Kaaval’ marks Nithin’s second directorial. He debuted with ‘Kasaba’, a cop movie that featured Mammootty in the lead. Ahead of its release, in a press meet held in Dubai, the actor and MP Suresh Gopi revealed that the movie will give much hope for the unsupported women. Though one may not be able to protect all victims of abuse, I wish to support them as much as I can, he said. The strong female characters played by Rachel David (Antony's daughter) and Muthumani (Antony's wife) have impressed the audience. From bringing out their grief, anger, to a ‘dash of action’, the actors have done justice to their roles within the brief screen time they get.
