Storyline

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 rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

good movie...
25 October 2008 | by kishan_ninjaSee all my reviews

This movie is actually very good.when it was released it did not get good reviews and hence i decided to skip the movie but happened to see it accidentally in more recent times.This movie is an out and out comedy movie with lots of plot twists and confusion(which can be followed easily).Only kamal hassan can make such a movie with lots of twists and turns and yet remain within the plot without making the storyline an allout mess which other directors are capable of.Pasupathi was simply superb in his role carrying on with ease.Other characters also put up good performances.I highly recommend this movie for a great weekend and am sure this ribtickler will be a gasp of fresh air which surely makes one happy at the end.I give this movie a 8/10.
