After having spent his entire life in Bombay's Dharavi slums, Digamber feels it is time that he takes steps to improve his lifestyle. He, along with two other slum-dwellers, plot to kidnap the only son (Shravan) of a wealthy businessman, Kishore Mehta. Things do not go as planned as one of their partners gets hospitalized when he gets a reaction from locally brewed alcohol. Since this plot involves three males, Avinash, a deaf, but dare-devil motorcycle rider is recruited. Things do not go quite as planned, as only Digamber and Avinash are available to carry out the abduction. To make matters worse, they find out that the wrong boy (Daddu) has been abducted, who happens to be the illegitimate son of Assistant Commissioner of Police, S.P. Rao. So the heat is now on the Digamber and Avinash, who must somehow find a way to get out of this mess - alive and in one piece. Written by

Thoroughly enjoyable movie. I especially appreciated the acting of Kamal Hassan which reminded me of one of the very old French movie about the kidnapping of a child done by French comic Fernandel. It is especially tough to play a dummy, it takes more intelligence to play a fool. I have been to India on a few occasions, in Tamil Nadu, for work on AIDS with the MGR University, and this movie reminded me of everything I found charming and everything I found exhilarating or unbearable in India, such as the bureaucrats, quite as bad as the French bureaucrats. There is nothing profound in the movie, why should there be? It's just enjoyable all the way through and I am a real fan of funny movies. Seems to me that's often the best way to reflect back on life. Best is that it's a good slice of life in India. Like the international bestseller book "Shantakaram" the Australian (G.D.Roberts) bestseller, in a different register, since it is both adventurous, lively, and a good painting of Indian life.
