Soubin Shahir who has already captivated audience is back in Johnpaul George's Ambili. The film is also an exploration of human minds and behavior. Soubin plays the title role, a darling of the neighborhood but who is also gullible because of his child-like persona. As expected, Soubin shone bright in the film. He was accompanied by newcomers Tanvi Ram and Naveen Nazim around whom Ambili's world revolves. Critics were quite impressed with the film. But impressing audience was a challenge as people are reeling under rain and floods and getting them to theaters were out of question. Yet, word of mouth greatly helped in spiking the collection. After 10 days, the collection stand at 3.25 crore.
