Mammootty’s CBI 5 gears up for OTT release
The Mammootty starrer ‘CBI 5: The Brain’ is all set to stream on Netflix on June 12. The film, which originally hit screens on May 1, garnered mixed response during its theatrical run. It still managed to do decent business at the box office thanks to the iconic status of the CBI franchise.

While Anoop Menon and Sudev Nair play cops, Dileesh Pothan essays the role of a politician. Renji Panicker, Alexander Prashanth and Ramesh Pisharody are also part of the CBI team.
