The major part of the film Cocktail, edited and directed by Arun Kumar, is dominated by three characters. Riveting incidents carry the movie forward at a fast pace keeping the viewer on tenterhooks. But the climax is a letdown, as it fails to involve the viewer. The movie is scripted by Shyam Menon and the dialogues are by actor Anoop Menon.
Ravi Abraham (Anoop Menon) and Parvathy (Samvrtha Sunil) with their three-year-old daughter Ammu lead a contended life. One day the couple go out leaving the child in the care of a hired babysitter, Beatrice. They offer a lift to a hitchhiker (Jayasurya) who is initially friendly and talkative. All of a sudden, he pulls out a gun and threatens Ravi. He says the babysitter is his accomplice and the child is now in their custody. The hitchhiker then orders Ravi to drive to several places and makes them do many things against their will. Night falls and their bizarre journey continues…
Anoop Menon has put in a good performance while Samvrtha Sunil essays her role to perfection. Jayasurya is his usual self. The cast also includes Mamukoya and Innocent.
The lyrics are by Anil Panachooran and Santhosh Varma. Nin thanalinu thazhe in Ratheesh Vega's music is soothing. The other songs are tuned by Alphonse. Pradeep Nair wields the camera.
Cocktail is produced by Milan Jaleel for Galaxy Films.
