Richie Review & Story Plot:

Richie Movie Story:

The local folks of Manapad town are getting ready to celebrate their biggest festival, Christmas and it is their annual tradition to participate in the procession, which is led by the father of the village’s oldest church and seek blessings from him. During the course of the celebration, one of the villagers accidentally discovers an old treasure, which opens a path of destruction and would affect the lives of the villagers.

As the events unfold following the discovery of the treasure, the stories of some individuals – Richie, a local thug, Selva, a boat mechanic who is struggling to recover from the loss of his friend, and Megha, a local journalist gets intertwined in this multiple narrative. The film narrates incidents from the perspective of five people that lead to a mysterious death.

Richie Movie Review:

Nivin Pauly plays the title role of a thug. The story is centered around the murder that takes place during a local fair. Shraddha Srinath will be seen as a journalist who tries to put the pieces together from different people to get a clear picture of the incident.

After Premam, Nivin Pauly’s veshti-clad, bearded look was the rage of the town. And with Richie, the actor is donning his most famed look yet with a twist. The usually demure Nivin Pauly’s transformation as the angry, cussing, paan-spitting Ritchie would be exciting for his fans. No doubt! Richie is going to make big bucks for the makers from the box office for sure.
