Kerala hartal latest news 2018 kerala hartal bandh call reasons timings

There is no hartal in Kerala on Monday 16 April 2018. Fake WhatsApp message is spreading in social media that Janakeeya hartal will be held on 16-4-2018. This message has created a lot of confusion among people who are looking to know whether any Kerala hartal is declared. As per latest information there is no hartal call by any political parties on this date.

On Monday 9 April 2018 there will be Kerala hartal by Dalit Aikya Vedhi. It will be from morning 6 am to evening 6 pm on 9-4-2018. All exms of Kerala, Kochi, Kannur, Calicut universities have been postponed. There are Intelligence reports that there is chance for problems during hartal. KSRTC, Private buses, shops .etc. has informed that it will conduct services as usual. Buses are running in first 2 hours of hartal.

Strike (Panimudakku) held in Kerala on Monday 2nd April 2018 by trade unions will be like a Kerala hartal. There will not be any vehicle strike (Vahana panimudakku). Because KSRTC staff unions and may other unions except BMS (Baharatiya Mazdoor Sangh) are taking part in this strike it will have effect of a hartal in Kerala. BMS which is BJP supporting trade union will keep away from protesting activities as decision to bring contract labour law is take by Central government under BJP. Private vehicles will not be affected by this 24 hours long strike held on 2-4-2018.

Let us see which all exams in Kerala has been postponed due to Kerala strike. All examinations of Kerala university, MG university (Mahatma Gandhi), CUSAT university, Calicut university, Kannur university, Theory exams of Kerala University of Health Sciences (Arogya university) on 2nd April 2018 has been postponed. Kerala PSC has announced that examinations scheduled to be conducted on 2-4-18 will not be changed or postponed. PSC exams on 2-4-2018 will be conducted without any change. There was a fake Whatsapp message that MG University 4th semester CBCSS exams on Tuesday, 3rd April has been changed and a complaint has been given to Cyber cell regarding it. Tourists or people on vacation trips in Kerala on Monday 2-4-2018 will be most affected. If you are traveling in a taxi or own car you will not be affected by this strike because it is not a hartal or bandh. But if you plan to depend on KSRTC buses or autos you will have to face difficulties due to this 24 hour strike.

Central government’s decision to bring contract labour rules into effect has created a feeling of job insecurity among employees all over India. Which all sectors of employees will be affected by new Contract labour law rule is being inquired by everyone. It will mainly affect labourers in factories, industries. When this new labour rule comes into effect recruitment can be done by employing staff for a specific contract period. It will prevent employees being recruited till they reached pension age. This new contract labor rue has many advantages and disadvantages. As employees are taken for a specific contract period it will help everyone to get job. Many opportunities will come for job seekers as there will be no permanent jobs.

A contract period ends within 1 or 3 years it will give opportunities to other job seekers without waiting for a vacancy till a person reaches pension age. Coordination Committee of Central Trade Unions in Kerala has decided to protest against this decision by BJP ruling Central government. Kerala trade unions like CITU, INTUC, AITUC, STU, HMS .etc. have joined this strike on 2-4-2018.

This new labour rule announced by Gazette notification on 16 March 2018 (16-3-2018) will bring an end to fixed term employment in India. All companies will be eligible to employ workers on contract for a fixed term, employees will not be given any termination notice and will not be given any notice period salary if this contract is terminated. It means that many rights that employees got through trade unions will come to an end. Amendment of Labour law to appoint staff on contract will bring an end to Trade unions as contract staff keep on changing in companies.

Keralathil ‘nale hartal undo’, ‘nale hartal ano’ ‘nale hartal pinvalicho’, hartal pinvalichu’ are common inquiries by people of Kerala as this is God’s own country for hartals and bandhs. All latest news updates on Kerala hartal will be updated. Is there any problems related to hartal happening today. What is condition of hartal in Kerala with latest news photos, videos will be updated. Most exams in schools, colleges, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala University, PSC exams, interviews.etc.  scheduled to be conducted on Kerala hartal dates will be postponed.

Information regarding postponing of exams, classes .etc. has to be confirmed by everyone with their respected areas. We cannot guarantee or take responsibility regarding any dates and whether it will be postponed unless official declaration is received.

People of Kerala start their day by asking ‘Is there any hartal tomorrow ?’ or ‘Is there a Hartal today?’. It’s because hartals have become a routine procedure in life of an average Keralite.

Vishu release malayalam movies 2018 release date cast reviews

April 2018 Vishu release malayalam movies are coming into theaters from Friday, 14 th April 2018. There are many upcoming Malayalam movies in Mollywood film industry getting ready for release in coming days as Summer release in Kerala. It’s vacation time during April – May months which makes peak release time of Malayalam movies. Many Malayalam movies will be released on 14-4-2018 as Vishu release and they are Mohanlal, Panchavarnathatha, Kammara Sambhavam, Parole, Orayiram Kinakkalal, Suvarna Purushan, Aalorukkam, Sreehalli.

Which are the 2018 Vishu release malayalam movies getting released and what are audience reviews based on it’s First day first shows (FDFS). Ticket prices at Multiplex theaters in Kerala have considerably increased recently. This has made audience more selective in watching Malayalam films. Only after knowing about reviews of movies most audience will go to theaters. We will give you correct ratings, information of cast crew and review of each movie that is getting released during this Vishu season and vacation release in April – May months.

Is there any Super Star movies from actors Mammootty, Mohanlal as 2018 Vishu release is asked by most audience. Mammootty movie Parole will be there to entertain all Mammookka fans. Suvarnapurushan is a movie that tells about story of fans of Mohanlal with Innocent in lead role will be a good treat for Mohanlal fans. Another movie titled ‘Mohanlal’ with Manju Warrier in lead role as a Lalettan fan will be released soon.

Mega star Mammootty as Sakhavu Alex in movie Parole was considered to be a main attraction among Vishu release malayalam movies. But it was disappointing as per latest audience reviews of Vishu films released during April 2018. Most movies during this festival release are from debut Directors like Sachin Raj (Sreehalli), Pramod Mohan Orayiram Kinakkalal), (Sarath Sandith (Parole), VC Abhilash (Aalorukkam), Sunil Pooveli (Suvarnapurushan).

As there are low reviews for recently released films in Kerala our recommendation for movies to watch during Vishu 2018 for audience are as follows.

  1. Mohanlal (Starring Manju Warrier, Indrajith)
  2. Sudani from Nigeria (Starring Soubin Shahir)
  3. Swathanthryam Ardharathriyil
  4. Rampage (Hollywood movie which is getting excellent reviews)

Vishu release malayalam movies 2018

As most Malayalam movies released during Vishu 2018 are just average or below average movies it will be a good news to audience who wanted to celebrate their Vishu inside cinema theaters. If you just want to watch a movie then you can just buy tickets for Manju Warrier’s Mohanlal, Soubin Shahir’s ‘Sudani from Nigeria’ or Hollywood movie ‘Rampage’ which is an excellent entertaining movie for all audience.


Manju Warrier starring Malayalam movie ‘Mohanlal’ got released on 14-4-2018. It is getting average reviews from audience. It is a feel good film watchable by families and Lalettan fans during this Vishu. Duration 2 hours 20 minutes. Director is Sajid Yahiya.

Manju Warrier has done role of Meenukutty who is a Mohanlal fan. Cast of this film includes Indrajith Sukumaran , Salim Kumar ,Aju Varghese, Soubin Shahir , Anjali NairAnjana Appukuttan, Sreya Remesh. Manju warrier’s “Mohanlal” has lot of comedy that will make audience enjoy it wholeheartedly.

Rating is 3.5/5

mohanlal movie review

Sudani from Nigeria

Soubin Shahir’s Sudani from Nigeria is not a Vishu release movie. Considering present situation in which most Malayalam movies released at present like Kammara Sabhavam, Panchavarnathatha, Orayiram Kinakkalal, Parole, are below averages and flops it is best for audience to depend on earlier released movies like Sudani from Nigeria. This is a feel good film that is a must watch if you have not watched it till now.

Swathanthryam Ardharathriyil

This movie is still running successfully in all theaters in Kerala.

Rating is 4/5


We are adding Hollywood movie ‘Rampage’ to our recommended and watchable movies list as it’s a good one. Among recently release Hollywood movie ‘Rampage’ is an excellent one full of action which will entertain children during this vacation. Visual effects are amazing and everything is perfect this time. Rampage is a very good movie which will be equally enjoyable for grownups as it’s an action packed story of Dwayne Johnson and his dear gorilla ‘George’.

Rating 4/5


Cast – Jayaram, Ramesh Pisharody, Amusree, Kunchakko Boban, Salim Kumar, Dharmajan. Another Malayalam movie that gets least rating is Panchavarnathatha which is being considered as a story that is not able to fly. Everyone expected that Ramesh Pisharody’s story will have lot of comedy elements but it was all disappointing.

Rating is 2/5

Kammara Sambhavam

Cast – Dileep, Namitha Pramod, Shwetha Menon, Murali Gopy, Siddharth. Dileep starring Kammara Sambhavam is getting lot of negative reviews from most places like Mathrubhumi, popular film rating media .etc. Rating of Kammara Sambhavam is just around 1.5 to maximum 2 by most of them.

Rating 1.5/5


Mega star Mammootty comes in role of Comrade Alex in this film. Parole movie actress names are Iniya and Miya George. Iniya acts as Annie while Miya acts as Kathreena. Other cast of malayalam movie Parole are Padmaraj Ratheesh, Siddique, Krishna Kumar, Muthumani, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Juby Ninan, Sudheer Karamana.

Malayalam movie Aalorukkam which won Best actor award for Indrans is also getting released. Indrans had sadly asked everyone to watch this movie on first day itself as he feared that this movie will have to leave theaters because of only few people who will go to watch an award movie. Any way many movie lovers have decided to watch Aalorukkam of actor Indrans and make sure that good movies like this one will be successful in box office collections too.
