This sounds like an absolutely delightful film. I was as caught up in your article as I am sure I will be when I cross paths with the movie itself.

I do hope you have the chance to -- I usually try to share legal sources with English subtitles when available, but, sadly, nothing turned up for this one. Perhaps one day, though :-)

Silver Screenings

This sounds like a terrific film with interesting characters. Personally, I find heist films hit-or-miss, but this one sounds like a definite Hit. Maybe Netflix will have it one day with English subtitles. (Fingers crossed!)

As I mentioned, it's very un-heisty for a heist film -- I remember being really surprised the first time I watched it, and hitting the interval before they even start carrying out the heist. And after Krishnan Unni takes off with the loot, the others end up kind of resigned at first and get on with things -- Narayankutty goes back to his electronic shop, and Marti actually gives up stealing and starts a shop of his own. So there's more here about their characters/personalities than the actual heist, probably why, in some way, the film appeals to me. :-)

Oh, darn, I'm sorry to hear this isn't available with subtitles, because I would love to watch it! Hopefully, it will be one day.

Thanks so much for bringing this film to the blogathon!


A great heist film. Neeraj Madhav is such a delight in this. I laughed for a solid 10 minutes at his performance in the muscle contest and it never gets old.
