Da Thadiya

Synopsis: The big, fat, cute Luke John falls in love with his childhood crush Ann. Realizing she is not so fond of his fatness, Luke embarks on a 'quest' to loose his weight.

This is not the beginning of this story

Neither am l sitting here

to enjoy the sea breeze

This is actually the climax


l am Sunny Jos Prakash

A youngster sticking out as

an RJ and VJ in this city of Kochi

My love you are my sugar

My love you are my sugar

l met you first in a tea shop

Having fried banana fritters

My love

My love you are my sweet darling

My love you are my sweet darling

l also saw you in a Bakery

Having a milk sweet so tasty

This number of yours

is simply wonderful


Keep this!

Have this, its Kozhikode sweet

Accept it my dear pearl

Next time you come,

l will give you chicken Biriyani


Start the vehicle

See you again

Basheer, when he's playing that veena

nothing else remains within sight

Everything else melts into oblivion

Only his face and that veena is clear

This instrument is not the 'veena'

lt's a guitar

What does it matter?

lt's the beauty of him playing it

Sir, l am Glikesh

l like your 'sugar' song very much

My wife and kids too love it


- Buddy, can you stop a minute

- Sure

Yes da!

- Da fatty!

- Tell me da?

l am in a mess!

That Haji is in love with me

- Are you playing games, useless?

- What else?

Look l'm serious dude

Okay, l'll call you back

- Shall we go?

- Oh, sure!

Don't laugh bro-in-law

lt's a Muslim

not Anushka who's after me

Tell us the truth,

did he do anything?

Do you know who he is?

He is a Don!

lf l don't go every time he calls me

He'll just kill me nicely

Do you know what he calls me?


That's because you go around

wearing a low waist

Dude! Don't try to undress

when getting a haircut!!!

There's only one person

who can help you

Who is that?

The Haji himself

We'll go talk to him

Shall we go?

Where did you say was his place?


l stood scared

at that prawn factory...

...waiting for Fatty to

return after handling Haji

But there was

a twist in the story

Did you think all Muslims of Kozhikode

indulged in 'other' activities?


Are you what they call

new generation?

Not me!

Your thoughts are all

in the wrong direction

- Just a doubt

- A big kick...

My dear clever Sunny boy

l liked your music

not your 'instrument'

After Thajudin of Badakara

and Kollam Shafi...

...lt's you, Sunny Jos Prakash

Let them go brother

After all our kids

That, l will do,

but l don't intend letting you go

Because l liked your Ney-chor (ghee rice)

l just loved it

lt's nature...nature

Whatever you say

l don't use it these days

Okay now get going

Like a big bundle

of cotton, so comfy!

- Thanks bro-in-law

- What?

- Thanks dude

- What?

My love...you are my sweet candy

l have to be honest buddy

Everyone must have

at least one friend like him

This is actually his story

This fatty's

This is not the 1st time he's rescuing me

lt all started ages ago

God named man Adam

and woman Eve

He created a garden

in Eden for Adam and Eve

The lovely flowers...

This is me, quite stressed out

in this flash back

A time when the most important incident

of my life was about to happen

Ninu Thomas, roll #16,

Looked like actress Amala,

smelt of lilies

A budding guitarist

Compared to my


- What was it?

- Paradise

And above all the only girl who

comes for morning mass after a shower

Sunny Joseph Prakash had fallen in love

for the 1st time in history

Ninu Thomas?

l love you

l'll show you!

l will tell this to daddy

Now l was in a real mess

Because, her 'daddy' was my teacher

Thomas sir

And that devil grew a nail in his finger

just to pinch the students

l was trapped

l was forced to call my cousin

Lucas John Prakash

Look, Lucas John

l must tell daddy about this

When friends stray from right path

others like a good shepherd...

...must bring them back, right?

l will tell this to my daddy

Dingan? ls it the sticker kind?

Okay, never repeat this

Using 4 dingan sticker labels

fatty bribed and rescued me

Even though he was

my uncle's son and 2 years older

l have never

addressed him older brother

But that day l did!

You! You are the perfect

older brother!

Hey stop pawing me, stop don't run

Sunny wait da!

We belonged to a political family

Our grandfather Prakash Palakkal

was the 1st Mayor of Kochi

He began a political party Prakash Congress

with the petromax lamp as symbol

After grandpa's death, his sons

took over the helm of affairs

Let brightness spread

Fatty's dad John Prakash

and my dad Jos Prakash

The members of Prakash congress

had some special traits

A mustache that looked like

a thatched roof over the lip

Starched and ironed

khadi clothes

A black diary in the pocket

and a small pen

Upper Primary School hair style

And their most enticing weapon

A perfume

which smelt of currency notes

Although they walk

elegantly in slow motion

Both never succeeded

in becoming mayor of Kochi

They married sisters from Kottayam

Rosymol and Marymol



Quite naturally

Fatty and l were born

Lucas's growing obesity was

a topic of discussion at home and town

- He got his pet name in school

- Hey Fatty!

Get lost you...!


Do you know

what the latest trend is?

- What is it brother?

- Comedy

Slip out of tricky situations

being comic

Did you note the item

our chief minister uses?

That's also true

Lucas's obesity was a matter

of shame for our dads

Lucas, go wear a shirt

Others found good use for it

Please allow fatty

to become Santa Claus...

...at our residents association

Christmas celebrations

This is a religious activity

And its an art too, right?

Like Kamal Hassan...

After that every year

Lucas became Santa Claus

Watching Lucas grow bigger

his uncle came to a decision

Jos, he is getting to be

too big for this place

lf nothing is done,

we'll turn paupers feeding him

That's also true

This is for all of you to follow

Hereafter he shall be given

only 2 meals a day

And that too only half his usual quantity

lf my little Lucas comes

and asks me food

l will simply give it,

you can get lost!

Go ahead Lucas, have your fill

That's also true

There were no more discussions

about his eating habits after that

Because at Prakash Bhavan

grandma's word was final

As soon as her

daughters-in-law arrived...

...grandma slept during day

and took up night job

Embroiders and cooks

fantastic dishes for fatty

So we named her the knight rider

The name gives you a shiver right!?

She was a diehard

fan of actor Rajinikanth

lf ever l see you here again

l will bury you right where l saw you

She may look a bit rough and tough

but inside she was a darling

Knight rider understood

Lucas like no one else

So he shared with grandma

almost all his sorrows and joys

Thus Fatty grew big and fat

in the shade knight rider provided

ln school he had a girlfriend

Only one

Ann Mary Thadikkaran,

a fat little girl

Knight rider who never

feared snakes and dogs was instilled...

...with fear of death and forced to

take an LlC policy by Joshua and Rani
