Love In Singapore is a 2009 Indian Malayalam-language comedy-drama film directed by Rafi Mecartin, starring Mammootty and Navaneet Kaur.

Plot

Machu, an orphan who became rich by selling scrap. The prime location for the film is in a large hall at a bottle recycling factory in Kochi. Machu starts off rather humbly but soon gets rich. Now his scrap business has branches all over India. Machu, who is uneducated, keeps a low profile and prefers to hang out with his two friends, Shukkoor and Narayanan. His life changes when Andrews Perreira, an Anglo Indian investor cheats Machu into investing all his wealth into Perreira's investment company. Perreira acts as if he tried to commit suicide to give his investment fraud a lively touch. The innocent investors, including Machu, believe this and forgive Perreira, believing it wasn't his fault. The movie takes a wild turn when Machu meets Perreira's daughter, Diana, and wishes to marry her. But Perreira betrays Machu again by interchanging his daughter with his neighbour's daughter, an old friend of Machu's. On the wedding day, all falls apart as Machu and his friends goes to confront Perreira for his crimes, but Perreira with his daughter had already escaped to Singapore. Then the movie goes into utter humour as Machu and his sidekick tries to locate Perreira and Diana in Singapore.

Reception

Rediff wrote that "the script is illogical and consists of many 'laugh a minute' portions that have been put together to make this film. [...] Love in Singapore is one of the worst efforts by the director duo Rafi-Mecartin in recent times."[4] Sify wrote, "In one word, avoidable."[5]
