Nivin Pauly would surely be expecting to recreate the magic that his blockbuster Premam created. Nivin plays a cop in his 25th movie Action Hero Biju; he is enacting this role for the first time in his film career. Now, let’s see what the movie has in store for us.


Nivin Pauly is an ordinary commoner who leads a monotonous life. He is engaged to Anu Emmanuel. Eventually, destiny has something else in store for Nivin, and he becomes a police officer, who helps the needy at the right time. How being a cop impacts his life forms the rest of the plot.

Star Performances

Nivin Pauly, who has enacted the role of SI Biju Paulose, has pulled off his role with confidence. He is very spontaneous throughout the movie. He is evolving as a matured actor with every film. And as a producer, this film will surely reap him awards. Anu Emmanuel has a brief role in the movie. Jude Anthany Joseph has done well in the comedy department while Suraj Venjaramoodu does a neat job too. Rohini, Major Ravi, and Saiju Kurup ably support.


Biju is just a character that we get to see in our day-to-day lives but have missed on big screen. The director of the movie, Abrid Shine, has teamed up with Nivin Pauly after 1983 (which was both a commercial and critical success) and in this film, he succeeds in giving a neat entertainer, which is interspersed with variety. It is obvious that the director was confident in what he was going to deliver to the audience. Also, the combination of Abrid Shine and Nivin Pauly has worked out well.

What’s there?

  • The script is presented on the big screen in a realistic manner. 
  • The life of a cop is shown in a different and engrossing manner in this film. 
  • The character of Nivin Pauly will surely vibe well with the audience.
  • The music of Jerry Amal Dev is commendable. 
  • Rajesh Murugeshan has worked well with the background scoring. 
  • DOP of Alex Pullickal is another highlight of the movie.
  • The editing of the movie is outstanding. 
  • The movie doesn’t stroll down the path of being preachy. 

What’s not there?

  • The storyline is very ordinary. 
  • For those who are expecting to see Nivin in the role of a superhero, then this is not your cup of tea. He is just an ordinary commoner turning into a police officer. 


The movie may not be in the lines of Premam or 1983. But still it will appeal you with the well-executed script and splendid performance of Nivin. Quite a good tribute to the good cops….
