"Black" is a movie that deals with the underworld operations in Kochi City. Karikkamuri Shanmugham (Mammootty) is a hit man and a contract killer. David Carlos Padaveedan (Lal) is a lawyer who masterminds and controls the operations of the underworld in Kochi..
David and Shanmugham are friends and Shanmugham does whatever David asks him to do. As a child Shanmugham was picked up from the slums by the local secretary of the Marxist Party (Janardhanan) and put in an orphanage. He grew up without any love and affection and turned out to be a real 'goonda'. He becomes a ruthless and cold blooded killer. As the story goes, Shanmugham was entrusted with the custody of a girl by the party secretary. It turns out to be that the girl is his own daughter.

A newly appointed police officer Ashok ( Rehman) tries his best to clean up the corrupt system in the city but is killed by Carlos. Such incidents involving innocent people gradually makes a change in Shanmugham.

The rest of the movie deals with the transformation of Shanmugham from a killer to a peaceful man. He ends up fighting with his own gang controlled by David Carlos Padaveedan and a good hearted City Police Commissioner (Babu Antony) helps him out in his ordeal.

Director Renjith narrates a silly but complicated story. In an indirect way he is trying to warn the public that there are lawyers in Kochi City who are real SHARKS who will eat you live with or without the underworld connections. There is plenty of potential for a sequel to this movie. Ranjith handles the storyline of an 'Unscrupulous Lawyer of Kochi' very well. Mammootty, as usual handles the role of Shanmugham, with style. He does put up a make believe "Real" type of performance. In fact the film revolves around his superhuman character. For Rahman, it is a great comeback after a long break in Malayalam films. Lal gives a convincing performance in his negative role.  Janardhanan and Sona Nair does justice to their roles. TV channel SS Music's VJ Shreya Reddy as a migrant Tamil lady, Anandam is okay.

The song "Ambalakara Thechikavil Pooram" sung by M.G.Sreekumar is a well choreographed, memorable one. Even though the film has a lot of street fights and violence, the majority of the audience seem to love this genre, so it is not a waste at all.

We rate this movie  Average.
