Not so fast, Sidhu!

Where is he going?

What is this?-A gift for daddy!

Go ahead.

Deal with them very carefully.

Let go of me, mom!

Why did you pinch me?

Think you can do anythingif you're a male?

When did I pinch? Why do you hit me?-Dog!

Why are you lying? You think I'm crazy?-Think you are so hot, eh? Now apologize!

If you don't, things will get really nasty!-Ask him what he did, sir!

Get lost!Go on, ma'am.

Men like these...

Get back to your work.

Who was that, dad?-No one, dear. Just some jerk.

What happened?-Nothing. Felt like an ant-bite.

I'll get the snacks.

No, dad. I don't want anything.Let's go back in. Mom must be waiting.

Very well.-Yes, dad.


What happened?Paul!

Give me that!

Tastes like horse piss!


One case.Just one case.

What is your problem?

I just need one interesting case.

It's been three weeks.Not a single person has given me one!

May as well start selling flour!

My brain is decaying!

Get out of the way!

Get up, Kani!

A client's here.

For the last three days, my husband...

He has been missing for three days.

You both use the same reading glasses.

He has been using it for five years.

A rubber bandkeeps the broken frame intact.

So, your husband does not work.He just stays home and cooks.

You haven't told the cops, because yourfamily will be ashamed if they find out.

After seeing the ad in yesterday's paper,you came to me.

Your husband will be back homeby tomorrow or even by tonight.

Because he has no one but you.Now you can go.

What is your fee?-What is your case?

My daughter's missing.

What is your name?-Madhavan.

How long has she been missing?

Eleven, counting today.

What do the police have to say?

Can't rely on them.

When did you learn that she was missing?

She went to college. Never got back.

Does she have a boyfriend...

I don't know!

Ten lakh rupees.

It's yours if you can find my daughter.

Does your daughter know to drive?-What?

No, she doesn't know.

Who drops her off to college?

There was a driver.

"Was"?-He was a rogue!

He ran away.

How many drivers have you employed?-Three.

Despite having them,why did you drive yourself here?

Nobody knows that I came here.

Who gave you this address?-My manager.

I have three ongoing cases.So, I can't take up yours.

Twenty five lakh rupees!

You may leave.

What is this, Kani?

Take this blank cheque.

Fill how much ever you want!Find my daughter!

You threw a fit earlierfor not having a case.

You turn one down and lie that you're busy.-We don't need that one.

It's 50 lakhs.-That's okay.

What "okay"?

Most folks hire detectives just to spy onbrides and grooms before the wedding.

Are you like that?You'd solve this in just two days.

He offered a blank chequeand you threw him out!

I didn't like him.-Who cares about that?

It's the case that matters.

Just find his daughter, Kani.

She'll die, man.-What?

If I return his daughter to him,he will kill her himself.

What are you saying?

That girl has eloped with the driver.

Notice how that guy used his feetto pick up his car keys?

He feels rage, not sorrow,at his daughter's disappearance.

If I find her, you'll find her deadin a well or a railway track in a few days.

Or even hanging in her house.

Marked as suicide,this case would be closed.

Why the rush?

Why are you smiling?


What "magic"?

Five seconds ago.

What happened five seconds ago?-An art of a pickpocket.

Who did they pickpocket?-You.

My wallet is right here.

Is the money intact?

I had four thousand rupees.Only two thousand is in here!

How is that possible?

Pretend like you're on the phone.

Hello madam!This is Priyadarshan speaking.

I'm doing very well.How are you?

How is business coming along?

I was just about to call youwhen you called me right now.

Yes, a consignment of cloth materialshas arrived.

I'll send over samplesthrough an executive, this evening.

Please look it over and approve it.

Sis, there's a bald, bespectacled manwith a green shirt and a suitcase.

An old cheque is still due,madam.

It will be great if you could clear that.

It will be wonderful if you clearthe payment for this consignment too.

Yes, madam.

No problems with that, madam.I'll take care of everything.

Dress up like a rich girlto pickpocket, eh?

What? I come from a respectable family...-Shut up!

Respectable family, my foot!

I just watched your act.

How much did you stealfrom that guy?

Who are these guys?What do they want?

We want a box of sweets!March to the police station!

Please don't do this, sir.I'll return the money!

Please don't make a scene.-The hell I won't! I'll call everyone!

I really like your work.Come to this address tomorrow morning.

Keep it.

You gave our address to a pickpocket!

If you weren't there,I would've turned them over to the cops.

What is it, kiddo?Why are you here?

I came to meet detective uncle.

Okay, tell me. What's up?-No. I want to see detective uncle.

Do I not look like a detective?

No. You're a cook.

You smell like onions.

Come along.

Sit down, kid.

When you typed 'detective'in your dad's iPad... found many addresses.Why did you choose to come here?

Other detective ads were like film posters.Caps. Guns. Poses.

But yours just read'Detective Kaniyan Poongundran'.

When I saw that,I decided to come here.

You skipped school to come here.-Yes.

What is your name?


What happened last night?
