Storyline

Ravi Abraham (Anoop Menon) is one of the key brains behind the success of a construction firm. He has rivals within and outside the office, jealous of his success. At home, he has a blissful life with his wife Parvathy (Samvrutha Sunil) and daughter Ammu. But things go terribly wrong for Ravi and Parvathy one fine morning, with a stranger named Venkitesh (Jayasurya), who asks for a lift in their car. For the first few minutes, Venky appears to be a naive mild guy but his tone changes soon and he begins to blackmail the couple, telling them that their daughter is kidnapped and with just one phone call from him the brand-new babysitter will kill her. They are forced to obey several bizarre instructions one after the other. First Venky asks them to withdraw the entire balance from their bank account in cash. Soon after Venky sets fire to the currency notes in a suitcase and throws the whole thing into a river along with their wallets. Venky then proceeds to ask for more money, so Ravi ...

brilliantly made...trend setter.
11 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It's another ordinary day in the life of Ravi Abraham (Anoop Menon), successful architect and his wife Parvathy (Samvrutha), until their daughter is kidnapped and a stranger Venkatesh (Jayasurya) threatens to topple everything that they hold dear to. In the course of the next several hours, the couple is assigned a series of daunting tasks which would ruin their very existence.

Arun Kumar's directorial debut Cocktail is a malayalam movie which is a scene-by-scene adaptation of Butterfly on a Wheel; a Canadian thriller directed by Mike Barker in 2007. The makers of Cocktail have obviously been a bit too stirred by the Pierce Brosnan starer, and hence do not attempt to make too many diversions from the chill points that the original screenplay had.

Overall this movie is a spine chilling experience, the shots are well taken,good back ground score, nice editing, superb dialogs and excellent acting by each actors irrespective of the length of their roles.The best part is that this film is creating a revelation in the malayalam film history , hats off to this real trend setter.
