Kaduva is an action thriller scripted by Jinu Abraham and directed by Shaji Kailas. Supriya Menon and Listin Stephen produced the film. Abinandhan Ramanujan cranked the camera, and Shameer Muhammed edited the film. Jakes Bejoy composed the music. Prithviraj Sukumaran plays the lead role. Vivek Oberoi, Samyuktha Menon, Aarish Anoop, Arjun Asokan, Alencier Ley Lopez, “Janardhanan,” Baiju Santosh, “Seema,” Kalabhavan Shajohn, Rahul Madhav, Sachin Khedekar, Saju Navodya, Shivaji Guruvayoor, and Jagan Shaji Kailas are in the supporting roles.


DIG Joseph Chandy is a corrupted officer, who clashes with Kaduvakunnel Kuriyachan, a Pala Planter. Chandy has a solid political background. His corruption vanishes in seconds due to the political support he has. The film focuses on the charges made by Chandy and how Kuriyachan clears the issues.

Star Performance

Prithviraj is exemplary, as usual. His body language and expressions are fantastic. In action sequences, he satisfied his fans. Vivek Oberoi is good in his role. He has got a vital role after “Lucifer.” Kalabhavan Shajon, Rahul Madhav, Alencier, Baiju, Arjun, and others have done what is required for their roles. Though Seema has a very less screen presence, her role is vital.


Shaji Kailas’ direction is neat. The script by Jinu is simple yet interesting. The characters are designed neatly. Though it is Seema’s small role or Prithviraj’s lead role, the director and team had designed every role strongly. Though the film moves at the right pace, the scenes towards the climax are not interesting. The visuals are beautifully captured in the dark. The long and aerial shots are clear and impressive. The music by Bejoy is neat.

What’s There?

  • The script and the execution are neat
  • The performances of the stars are impressive
  • The visuals and BGM are good

What’s Not There?

  • Some scenes towards the climax should have been shot better


Kaduva is a good action thriller to watch for the performances of the stars, Prithviraj and Vivek Oberoi, and the supporting actors like Kalabhavan Shajon.
