Rahul, played by Shane Nigam, is a newly-joined SI whose pistol is taken in a crowded bus. Even worse, a series of crimes, including bank robbery and murders, are committed with the same handgun. Rahul is in a life-or-death predicament because he has been suspended for misplacing his service revolver. The results make the movie compelling and exciting to watch.

In the film, Siddique plays a significant part as Sankararaman alias Govindan. Actor Shane develops. His performance as Rahul, a police officer, is excellent for the first time. The battle scenes and his mannerisms are both fantastic. There is also a backstory involving the Superintendent of Police Gracy. She embodies dark undertones.


The setting of Corona Papers is the time of the epidemic, as the title would suggest. It addresses offences committed during the pandemic. There is a history that takes place four years before the killings. Through Gracy, the director aims to show the dark sides of the police force. However, we have previously witnessed numerous instances where phoney interactions and manipulation of criminal proceedings have taken place. The film connects a bank heist, a military pistol, eight gunshots, and a staged encounter.

Priyadarshan effectively wrote the Corona Papers screenplay during the epidemic era. These depictions of this period’s mask use in public settings and the challenges police encountered in apprehending offenders are good. For his shots, director of photography Divakar AS merits praise. They fit well for a suspenseful thriller. Editing by Aiyappan Nair is razor-sharp. The movie benefits from the background music composed by KP.

At a particular point, the key characters unite. Pappachan and Tony’s passion for Rani is the subject of an intriguing subplot. Delivering solid humour is Shine Tom as Pappachan. Tony is portrayed by Jean-Paul well. In his role as the corrupt officer, PP Kunhikrishnan impresses.

Hannah and Gayathrie Shankar both do an excellent job portraying vital female roles. The aspiring journalist Gayathrie has little to do, yet she manages her role admirably. Sandhya Shetty, the SP, plays a crucial part. Her dubbed dialogue, however, goes differently from how she is acting. Besides that, she is alright.

Rating: 3/5

It’s a comeback film for filmmaker Priyadarshan, who, this time, chose to cast young people in the lead roles rather than sticking with his usual cast. The film is flawless technically throughout. These reasons led to the movie receiving a three out of five rating.

Four Frames Sound Company produces the film, while Priyadarshan is the director. The movie stars PP Kunhikrishnan, Gayathrie Shankar, Siddique, Shane Nigam, Shine Tom Chacko, and Gayathrie Shankar. On April 6, 2023, it was released. Hotstar offers digital streaming of the movie.
