Young actor Tovino Thomas' latest Malayalam movie Godha, which can be called Mollywood's Dangal, hit the theatres across Kerala on Friday, May 19. The sports-centred movie, based on wrestling, is the directorial venture of Basil Joseph of Kunjiramayanam fame, and is one of the most awaited movies in Malayalam this year.
Tovino plays Anjaneya Das while Punjabi actress Wamiqa Wabbi makes her debut in Malayalam with Godha in the role of a wrestler named Aditi Singh. Renji Panicker, Aju Varghese, Dharmajan Bolgatty, Mammukoya, Parvathy T and Kottayam Pradeep also play significant roles in the movie.
Tovino, Basil and the entire team of Godha have been actively promoting the movie in various unique ways and viewers are already impressed with the interesting promo videos and songs of the sports drama. The movie is expected to open to rave reviews from the audience.
The horror thriller Ezra's director Jay K, who recently watched the preview show of Godha, took to his social media handle to comment on the Tovino-starrer.
Finally saw the preview of GODHA. A rollicking comedy sports drama with technical finesse and production values. An entertaining watch with gr8 performance from newbie Wamiqa gubbi, Tovino Thomas and Ranji Panikkar. I had my share of fun... #godhayilkanaam (sic)."

Godha should'nt be missed in theaters due to its super package of humour and action. First of its kind here while looking upon the wrestling part, especially in terms of quality making. Congrats Basil Joseph (y) Superb visuals by Vishnu Sarma & Abhinav Sunder Nayak cuts are inspiring. And special mention to Shaan Rahman for his very energetic album and so is the background score.

Last act being weak is becoming a pattern for E4Entertainment films (Guppy & Ezra)... Technical awesomeness & variety is their USP. 3.5/5

#Godha a typical cliche story with all its moments! Moreover its a female lead movie dont get confused becoz of Tovino! #Godha filled with fun & emotions tells a story about a girls who is passionate about wrestling Clichéd but it's actually one time watchable. Climax was a cliché and also as same as of #Dangal but considering the fact they didnt know about it, it was an ok climax #Godha
Saw #Godha First Day First Show! One word to describe.. "Addipoli"..Thank you! @iBasil @ttovino @GabbiWamiqa Mantodi, and the youth Renji! The audience in the theatre were like in a "laughing godha".. !! Very good story and awesomely directed. Basil's usual casting done a great job, comedies worked out well also the one liners Tovino as usual done his job right!! #WamiqaGabbi she is a bomb shell She did an extra ordinary job and made my eyes always glued to the screen
#godha perfect entertainer, @GabbiWamiqa wat a debut ! She looks cute and performed really well especially in the second half @ttovino

#Godha is a predictable yet smartly packaged wrestling drama that gets almost everything right in keeping the audience hooked on to its rollicking narrative that offers relentlessly funny and exciting moments. Basil Joseph has come a long way from his debut, 'Kunjiramayanam'. In this second outing of his, he proves that he is here to stay with an immensely engaging narrative that offers no dull moment whatsoever from the start to the finish. Rakesh Mantodi's screenplay is mostly predictable from miles away and formulaic in approach, but he makes up for all of it, to a great extent, by focussing more on the character development in an organic manner. Apart from Abhinav Sunder Nayak's intelligently clocked editing and Vishnu Sharma's exuberant visuals, it's Shaan Rahman's vibrant music and thumping background score that truly elevates the movie into a whistle-worthy experience. Every single track synchs perfectly with its narrative and none of them felt like a speed breaker.
Basil Joseph has delivered Malayalam cinema's proud answer to the likes of 'Dangal' and 'Saalaa Khadoos' with a wholesome package of rib-tickling fun and earnest sports drama filled with crowd-pleasing moments aplenty, where Shaan Rahman -- with his stellar soundtrack -- delivers his best work till date. 8/10

Stellar acting and an engaging storyline presented with a dose of comedy, something tells me Godha is going to be big. The chemistry between Tovino and Wamiqa was brilliant with the proposal scene standing out.
