The focus of 2018 Everyone focuses A Hero focuses on tales of humanity overcoming hardship against the backdrop of the floods that wreaked havoc in Kerala in 2018.
The Malayalam film 2018 Everyone Is A Hero, starring Tovino Thomas and directed by Jude Anthany Joseph, is on a dream run and approaching the Rs 100-crore club, an exceptional achievement for a Mollywood production.
People familiar with the Malayalam cinema business are claiming that “2018” is “the real Kerala Story” and not the one that claims to be one, especially given that it comes at a time when The Kerala Story is gaining widespread attention.
The focus of 2018 Everyone focuses A Hero focuses on inspirational tales of people overcoming hardship against the backdrop of the devastating Kerala floods that year. It is the second Tovino project, following the superhero film Minnal Murali from 2021, to garner widespread notice and acclaim from the public. It also reminds me of his portrayal in the 2019 movie “Virus,” which is about the Nipah outbreak in Kerala.
In 2018, Tovino inadvertently offered his skills as a volunteer for flood assistance. He plays a young man in the movie who deserts the Indian Army with a false medical certificate and finds redemption during the floods.
Top Malayalam actors, such as Asif Ali, Kunchacko Boban, Lal, and National Award-winning actress Aparna Balamurali, who portrays a TV reporter, are also part of the ensemble cast.
The film, which debuted on May 5, made a Mollywood record-breaking Rs 5.18 crore in Kerala alone on its ninth day of release. Over Rs 80 crore was reportedly collected globally in the first nine days. Standing ovations are reportedly being given to the movie in theatres all around the state.
The movie is produced by Venu Kunnappilly, C.K. Padma Kumar, and Anto Joseph under the auspices of Kavya Film Company and P.K. Prime Productions. It follows the 2022 action-adventure drama “Malikappuram,” starring Unni Mukundan, as the second back-to-back blockbuster from Kavya
