Kaadu Pookkunna Neram is the Malayalam film directed by Dr. Bijukumar Damodaran and featured by Indrajith Sukumaran and Rima Kallingal in the lead roles.

The film released on 6th January 2017. The film was wrapped up earlier in 2016 and it was screened in September 2016 at Montreal Film Festival. In December 2016, it was premiered in IFFK and had been criticized positively.


The film deals with the Maoist hunt. Indrajith is a sincere cop and Rima Kallingal is a Maoist leader. Indrajith was directed towards woods to capture the leader of a radical gang. On his mission to arrest the gang and its leader, Indrajith was caught by the group as a hostage. Was he released? Did he arrest the Maoists? The answers to these questions frame the rest of the story.

Star Performances

When we speak about the performances, none in the film is lesser in expressing the right emotions. Whether it is Indrajith or Rima, the performance of the stars excels. Biju has shaped the script well and cast the perfect stars. The jungle background is amazing and kudos to the cinematographer, MJ Radhakrishnan. Helicam shots make the audiences to watch the scenes with wide opened mouth.


Dr. Biju, the acclaimed director of Mollywood, has proved his versatility, once again with Kaadu Pookkunna Neram. He has proved that people could make excellent quality films on a medium budget.
