Nivin Pauly is extremely convincing as Richie a local rowdy with a mass attitude. He is an absolute treat to watch in this mass avatar and it is a complete makeover from his recent film Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela.

Considering the fact that Richie is her first film, Shraddha Srinath impresses with her looks as well as performance. Nataraj Subramanyian as a thug does justice to his role, Prakash Raj and others performed well in their roles.
