Editor turned debutant director Arun Kumar's Cocktail is a straightforward rip-off from Mike Barker's Butterfly on a wheel aka Shattered. Quite obviously, the film has a narrative style and flavor that is perhaps seen not so often in Malayalam. Though the film is somewhat predictable and meanders along for quite a while before reaching the climax, it has some genuine moments in it. Ravi Abraham (Anoop Menon) is one of the key brains behind the success of a construction firm. He has rivals within the office and outside, jealous of his success. On the personal front, he is having a happy married life with his wife Parvathy (Samvrutha Sunil) and daughter Ammu. But things go terribly wrong for Ravi one fine morning, with a total stranger named Venky (Jayasurya), getting into his swanky SUV. Venky started things in a mild way but his tone changes soon and he begin to blackmail Ravi and even Parvathy, who was also there in the vehicle. The couple withdraws money from a bank and gives it to Venky as per his instructions, which he burns and throws outside. They are made to obey several things one after the other and hours later, Ravi realizes some strange truths about life. Cocktail succeeds in keeping you engrossed on to the narrative mostly though the fun fizzles out once you have made some sensible guesses about things to come. The script, though it is a straightforward copy of the Canadian film, gives you enough time to wander and think about the possible conclusions. The visuals by Pradeep Nair and music by Alphonse helps in a great way to make things look good. Among the performances, Jayasurya looks convincing and so does Samvrutha Sunil. But Anoop Menon's character looks surprisingly cool even after losing all his life's earnings and with his daughter's life at risk. He does virtually nothing to get himself out of the situation, citing some silly excuses. The rest of the cast does a decent job, in their limited roles.

If you don't insist on originality in a film, well, Cocktail looks pretty fine. The film has its moments and can keep you mostly engaged. Now the choice is yours.
