2018 Movie Release Date, Trailer, Star Cast, Plot, Budget

Actor Tovino Thomas will soon be featured in “2018,” one of director Jude Anthany Joseph’s ambitious films. Joseph is known for helming critically praised movies like Ohm Shanthi Oshaana and the romantic comedy “Sara’s,” which debuted on Amazon Prime Video last year.

“2018,” a film produced by Kavya Films in collaboration with P.K. Prime Production, is based on the actual 2018 Kerala Flood and depicts how Keralites stood as one and resisted the flood that upended the lives of thousands of people.


Jude reveals that there were many uncertainties surrounding the movie up until the release of his movie “Sara’s,” but the movie’s popularity inspired Jude to concentrate on his ambitious project based on the terrible occurrence, which is now also known as “2018.”

A poster for the movie dropped on November 4, 2022, revealing the title. The poster has the phrase “Everyone is a Hero” in addition to the title. Tovino Thomas commented, “The narrative of the valiant Keralites who fought together the flood that drenched the state in 2018,” sharing the title and poster.


Thovino Thomas, who was most recently seen in “Thallumaala,” is one of the movie’s most promising actors in the ensemble star cast. Key roles for Aparna Balamurali, Vineeth Sreenivasan, Kalaiyarasan, Narein, Lal, Indrans, and Aj Varghese as well as Kunchako Boban and Asif Ali.


The movie, which was made by Venu Kunnapilly, CK Padmakumar, and Anto Joseph, tells the story of how Malayalis, regardless of caste, religion, or political affiliation, banded together to fight the terrible flood in 218 when half of the state was submerged.

The catastrophe, which claimed 500 lives and left thousands of people missing, was caused by the exceptional amount of rain. According to reports, it is Kerala’s worst flood in nearly a century.


Before the pandemic, discussions to launch the project were ongoing, but they had to come to an end owing to the COVID outbreak. The team officially started production in 2022 with a reworked cast and crew and plot. The movie is reportedly set for release around the first quarter of 2023. We are currently awaiting the creators’ official statement.
