What do you get when you mix together 4 losers, quiz competitions, girls and a lot of hormones? You get the indie comedy film Brahman Naman! Written by Naman Ramachandran, Brahman Naman is directed by Indian indie director Q (Gandu, Tasher Desh and Ludo).
This In-Betweeners style coming-of-age comedy backed by a rock anthem score is set in 1980s Bangalore. Know-it all teenager Naman (Shashank Arora), and his fellow nerdy mates Ajay and Ramu win every local quiz competition and get hammered on the prize money.

Naman and his mate’s quest for glory by outsmarting their rivals gets confused with exploding testosterone levels and the trio slide into a mad-cap adventure with hilarious consequences. »
