Four Friends is a 2010 Malayalam film directed by Saji Surendran. It stars Jayaram with Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Meera Jasmine, features Kamal Hassan in a cameo role after a hiatus of 21 years. The film was released on 28 October 2010. The film was a big letdown. This film came after the huge success Saji Surendran's previous film Happy husbands. But it failed to recreate the magic in the boxoffice. And it was declared as a flop in the box office..The film is inspired by the 2007 American film The Bucket List.[1] It was dubbed into Tamil as Anbulla Kamal as Tamil actor Kamal Haasan plays a guest role in the film.[2]

Plot[edit]

Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Meera Jasmine, Soorya (Kunchacko Boban) come from entirely different backgrounds, but one thing that they have in common is cancer. Roy is a multi-millionaire; Amir is a small-time goonda; Soorya is a musician; and Gouri lives in distress, troubled by her stepmother. Each of them is dying from the disease (blood, liver, bone, lungs cancer) and they all come for treatment to a plush hospital, Pratheeksha, run by Dr. Nandakumar (Ganesh). Though they take some time to become friendly, they eventually become close. They decide to go to Malaysia to meet Soorya's girlfriend, because they want to be positive in their life. There is a scene with Kamal Hassan, who gives a pep talk on how he lost some of his close friends to cancer, and gives the four friends some confidence.And at last Soorya dies.
