6. Ambili

Johnpaul George's Ambili is another Malayalm ovie for those who are missing out on their trips with loved ones. Viewers would love this movie for Soubin Shahir's performance in the title role. Soubin's Ambili, by choice, stays unaware of what others feel or think about him, and act without bothering what happens around him and live a happy life. As the movie title creative suggests, it revolves around the bicycle.
