Storyline

24 hours before the Tamil protests outside the Houses of Parliament, Arun (Nav Sidhu) returns home from a long absence, to stop his younger brother Ruthi (Kabelan Verlkumar) from committing a crime that could ruin his life. Arun is granted a day by his mysterious employer, Marcus (Oliver Cotton) to talk Ruthi round. But Arun's friendship with gang leader Karuna (San Shella), threatens to suck him back into the world he left behind. Can Arun forge a life away from his past misdeeds, save his brother from the same fate, and fulfill his obligations to his family, friends and his Tamil roots. Featuring a cast of fresh talent, and the music of M.I.A., Tallulah Rendall, Susheela Raman, Aaryan Dinesh Kanagaratnam, ABD & Sonar Cousins, Gangs of Tooting Broadway is a hard-hitting showcase of a little-known community and unfamiliar subculture; Sri Lankan Tamil Gangs whose infamy to Scotland Yard is such that they have their own task force dedicated to them.

How not to make a film
8 February 2013 | by BoltonCampbellGreenSee all my reviews

From the very opening, the acting is just dire. The story line weak, the camera work and editing - in places - would embarrass a secondary school media class.

I tried to find something positive to say, but it's now half way through and there has not been single compelling moment. I only let it run because it was so bad, I just wanted to see how much worse it could get.

The only reason this film has any positive reviews probably comes down to astro-turfing by those that have made it. I can't believe there is a human on this planet who would find this even worth watching on their phones during a long journey.

Seriously - don't waste the 1 hour 30 of your life, you won't get it back.
