Jayasurya stunned one and all with his portrayal of a character named Satheeshan Kanjikkuzhi, a character with negative shades and it was indeed a welcome change for the actor in him.
There is a reason for this movie to be in the list. Cocktail came in at the right time for Jayasurya and the role of Venkatesh with a mysterious background was indeed an image-breaker for him.
