  1. With a bizarre title, Malayalam film industry sweeps into something they like to call new-wave. Only, this time it is old-wave.

    The story is clichéd: a rom-com where a fat guy courts a 10-pointer sexy chick to fall in love with her. Her parents hate the guy & so they plan a trip to get away from the state, only to get stranded in an island infested by a crocodile.

    The humor is ample in the fist half, but then the crocodile enters and spoils the broth. What was hatching as a good entertainer turned out to be a boring parade of tomfoolery. Characters like the one who depicted cricketer Sreesanth gave me a run for the money and the lead couple are fine, as well. Ashokan does his part well. With the addition of social topics of sand mafia and the shawarma case, CLS stands out.

    BOTTOM LINE: First half is a fine watch, while second half drops the base. Faintly recommended & watchable.

    Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

    Violence/Gore: Mild | Sex/Alcohol/Smoking/Nudity: No
