Film Review : 2018
The Malayalam film 2018, based on the 2018 floods in Kerala, hit the screens in its Tamil version, today, on May 26th.
The story revolves around the tagline, 'everyone is a hero', when one of the worst floods in Kerala brought life to a standstill.
How ordinary citizens, especially the fishing community, rose to the occasion and helped evacuate people in distress, some even losing their lives , is what the film highlights.
There are a plethora of actors ( see list below) who strung together, bring alive wonderful tales of bravery, selflessness and kindness in the face of danger.
The film is an inspiration and a tribute to unsung heroes. The narrative is engaginf, events gripping and the screenplay fast- paced. There is emotion and humor, love and caring, family values and patriotism.
A sure shot must watch.
