2018 gets an OTT release date

Jude Anthany Joseph's latest film, 2018, is all set to premiere on Sony Liv on June 7, makers announced. Produced by Venu Kunnappilly, CK Padma Kumar, and Anto Joseph, the film stars Tovino Thomas, Kunchacko Boban, Asif Ali, Vineeth Sreenivasan, Lal, Aparna Balamurali, Kalaiyarasan and Narain, among others.

2018 is based on the flash floods that took place in 2018. The film weaves in several stories of people who get stranded as the disaster strikes. Jude and his co-writer Akhil P Dharmajan took inspiration from several real-life incidents to script the film as a hyperlink thriller. The film went on to become one of the commercial successes of the Malayalam industry this year.

An excerpt from Cinema Express's review of the film reads," In that regard, 2018 doesn't tread the predictable route. "Everyone is a hero," says the film's tagline. Indeed, but the film doesn't treat anyone as a superhero. But Jude doesn't forget to give us uplifting moments too. There is a neat balance between the upbeat and downbeat moments. The theatre erupted in applause when the fishermen, the real heroes of this story, gathered all their boats to gear up for rescue operations."
