    By By: Settu Shankar
    It is one of the worst years for Malayalam film industry with lot of failures, usual strikes and ego clashes. Amidst all these hurdles, there were 64 releases in Malayalam industry in the year 2007. But very few have turned well in the Box Office. Even the super stars like Mammootty, Mohan Lal and Suresh Gopi also suffered from many failures. Particularly it is Mohan Lal, who gave four big flops Ali Bhai, Paradesi, Rock N Roll and Flash in a row. Mammootty also suffered from more failures than hits in this year. His Ore Kadal, Nasrani are bombed in the box office.

    Here are the picks of for the year 2007:

    1. Maayavi

    Released in the early 2007, Maayavi is the biggest grosser of the year in Malayalam industry. Director Shafi's lighter vein comedy made this film as viewers friendly as well as distributor's pick.

    Box Office verdict: Blockbuster

    2. Chotta Mumbai

    This Mohan Lal-Bhavana starred all class hit has helped the actor to survive in the superstar race. Anwar Rashid's Maas masala script made this film in the B and C centre as the block buster of Mohan Lal.

    Box office verdict: Block Buster

    3. Chocolate

    Chocolate gives a big turning point in the career of Prithvi Raj and this film only helped the actor to become as a solo hero in his forth coming films like Kangaroo. This film also based on a comical theme directed by Shafi. Box office verdict: Blockbuster

    4. Hello

    5. Vinodayatra

    The successful combination of director Sathyan Anthikaad and Maestro Illayaraaja has turned well once again with the help of Dileep-Meera Jasmine's flawless performance. It is a simple family drama with all right ingredients mixed well. Box office verdict: Super Hit
