Shibu is a musical-romantic comedy movie. The character’s name is the same as the movie title. The protagonist is desperately hoping to be a part of the film industry. Unlike any other film enthusiasts who aim to become an actor. Shibu aspires to be a director.

Especially director of Superstar Dileep movie. The story gains pace when something unexpected happens in the middle of a short film shoot directed by Shibu. Even this twist is a humorous one. Says Bijukuttan without giving away the suspense of the movie. He is acting as Shibu’s uncle who wishes to be an actor.

Review Of Shibu

What a story it was!! Absolute bliss to watch the lead pair Karthik Ramakrishnan and Anju Kurian on the big screen. The breezy love story is a must-watch. One needs to definitely watch the chemistry between the characters.

And now lets come to the music, Sachin Warrier and Vignesh Baskaran have done a remarkable job. It was an absoute pleasure watching the visuals go along with the music. Cinematographer Shabeer Ahammed did a tremendous job with the visuals.

Finally, I want to thank the directors Arjun Prabhakaran & Gokul Ramakrishnan, for giving us this movie. It’s not only a love story, Shibu’s struggle to become a filmmaker was inspiring to watch. The movie has a fair share of ups and downs just like anyone’s life. What an experience it was watching this movie. Do watch this movie with your friends and family. Congratulations and thanks to team Shibu.
