      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

      Box office verdict: Block Buster

      3. Chocolate
