l'm still helping you out.

Atired opponent,

can kill all the

fun of the game.

Sam, do you know?

How good this feels?

You've seen flowers, right?

Beautiful flowers?

The thrill is when you pluck

them out & make them yours,

not when you wait for

them to wither away!


Bloody b@#@$@d!

l like this spirit of yours!

He is travelling.

The signals are moving

from the city to the east.



Get out of my way!



That wimpy Vishwan,

is going to propose to

that 'Bragger' Sara.

Attracting girls, is an art.

Can you do that?

l can & l will

make her fall for me.

Are you prepared?


What's your plan?

Just wait & watch!

He will mess it up!

She is very gutsy!

lf something happens, these

guys will be there for you.

Bus No.3 is here!

Dude, go!

Those scoundrels are watching us!

Don't embarrass us!

Are you happy now that you've

gotten him into trouble?

'Oh dear Sara!'

You & your Sara!

Sara, the flirt is coming.


He will mess up!

l'm sure!

This is a rare coin! You have

a coin collection, right?


Notjust a coin collection,

l have a stamp

collection as well.

But if you're planning to

woo me with all this,

you'll be taught a lesson!


- This is his usual trick.

All the fools are here!

Hey Jimbru,

you look handsome!

Did you have a bath today?

- You fatso!

- Dude, stop! Don't hit her!

- Get lost!

Awesome, Meenu!

- l will kill hertoday!

- Listen to me!

Calm down!


We're lucky!

Aren't you narrating the story?

lt's not a story!

They are real incidents!

l know that!

Say it!

Back then, Mumbai was

known as Bombay.

Say it like your daddy!

Where the pouring rains,

and the caressing breeze

had the scent of blood - Bombay!

Back then, Mumbai was

known as Bombay!

An age where the stories of the

bleeding streets were narrated by guns!

When the underworld was ruled by Kareem

Lala, Chota Shakeel & Dawood lbrahim.

There, my Papa!

David Ninan.

My dad!

Papa's Company wanted to start

an apartment project in Andheri.

The goons of those

underworld dons,

Except them!

Even after the Police & Collector

initiated a clear-off, they didn't agree.

And then?

His John Lobb shoes are shown!

He wears his sunglasses!

Papa took out his gun and held

their leader at point blank.

And thus, he made them vacate

Andheri, within an hour!

Ya right! Even Mohanlal took one whole

night to make them vacate Dharavi.

That was Mohanlal!

This is my Papa!

So much bragging!

She would even say that Burj

Khalifa was made by her Papa.

Don't believe anything!

Like Spiderman or Superman..

All are fake stories!

Ya! That's true!

- She & her Papa!

-And so many bogus stories!

So funny!

'Bragger Sara'

- Bragger Sara!

Sara, can you give me

a couple of bombs?

Oh my God!

Oh my God!

A gun?



Bragger Sara brought a gun!

Get out of my way!

What did you think?

That this is California,

Pennsylvania or Texas?

A child holding a gun?

l have to report this!

lf any of the kids

had been shot..

What's the point in reporting to

the police afterthey're killed?

What do you say, Chairman Joby?

What Maithreyan Sir said is right.

Notjust a gun. There

were six bullets as well!

l don't know how

Sara got hold of it.

That's her grandpa's.

He is an ex-military man.

And he has a license.

- So?

Grandpa has the license;

not Sara, right?

Was her dad a goon in

Mumbai in the past?

Sara is narrating violent

stories to other kids.

So, let her daddy come here.

He is responsible forthis,

And he has to come!

Let that underworld

don come here!

David is out of town.

No! l will have to take an action!

David had spoken to me about donating a

good amount forthe school's new block.

Oh! Did David say so?

Nothing happened, right?

She's a kid, right?

lt's just a gun!

lt wasn't even fired!

Don't make it an issue!

You can go.

Mummy doesn't like violence.

After he married Mummy, Papa stopped all

his risky businesses and came here.

That's when l was born.

- Dude, check out the bike!

Check it out!

- So fast!

Notjust bikes.

My Papa does stunts with cars too!

She has been doing

this for a while now!

As if there's nothing

that her Papa cannot do!

He is apparently more

glamourous than Dulquer Salmaan!

She came to scare us with

her grandpa's old gun!

When her Papa is called,

her Mummy comes to school.

He is even scared to meet the Principal.

And he's supposed to be a superhero?

Bose, awesome!

Good one, Bose!

Didn't you say that you'll

bring the Black Beast?

That's an off-roader, right?

There was a slight issue with

the workers at the site.

Their arms & legs are

like body-builders!

Was there a fight?

There was no fight; but there

was a fire-brand scene!

Will you narrate it to me?

- Oh! Sure!

l felt so ashamed in

front of Maithreyan Sir.

She is narrating all those fake stories

that you tell her, to the kids!

You're jealous, Mummy!

You should buy a new

Louis Vuitton jacket.

Wear it when you come next time.

Very nice!

Who wears all that in Kerala?

ls it Papa's fault if others can't

pull off jackets & sunglasses?

My Sara should be happy.

For that, l will wearjackets, sunglasses

or whatever she wants me to wear!

Are you part of the land mafia?

Who? Me?

Those are just rumours

made by jealous people!

You can start a mafia

if you want to!

l like all that!

You are the one who

made her like this!

You should remember

that you are a girl!

What's wrong if she's a girl?

Continue telling her stories.

You tell her some moral

science stories.

l can only narrate such stories.

lt's true that two women

can't be in the same house!

What's the name of the drama?

Shakespeare's 'Cymbeline'.

The princess lmogen is

attacked by evil forces;

and herjourney to

escape from them.

lt is my own version.

So in short, no one would

understand anything, right?


your approach towards

art isn't right.

You people are always like this.

You'll pick something

from English literature and..

Make noises like these;

and present it in a way

that no one understands!

And there are some idiots

who applaud even that!

Those who don't applaud

are tasteless fools!

Wait & watch!

l'm going to do 'Kathakali' this time!

As if that's very simple!

Why? You don't know Kathakali?

You don't know?

So sad!

What about others?

-All are there.

Mimicry, 'Koodiyattam',

Mono-act and so on.

l'm doing 2 items.

- We'll keep it at the end.

There won't be people then!

lf we start with it, you won't be there!

People will kill you!

l have actually learned


So you should give

me some extra time.

l was a state champion!

Notjust that, 'Koodiyattam'

has been approved by UNESCO.

But l haven't approved it.

l have to go.


Mohanlal's film has released.

James, come to my cabin

with Prime file.

Didn't l tell you earlier?.

Today is her birthday.

l had promised a

dinner & movie to her.

Man is a social animal.

He realizes that only when he's
