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.

Compelling look at a niche gang culture in London
28 February 2013 | by zakklein-601-15082See all my reviews

This is an unusual topic for a gang thriller but all the more compelling for it. Tooting Broadway is a complex, dramatic and bloody look at Tamal gang culture in south London, with broader political relevance both in the UK and in Sri Lanka.

Because the action is in London whereas the political unrest comes from a country we never see (Sri Lanka), it can sometimes feel slightly removed from the issue. But with patience the story is rewarding and has many surprising twists and turns.

There are other 'rude boy' films out there about violence and gang culture in London. So if that's all you're after then go see Kidulthood or Ill Manors. This is something different.
