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.Written by
The film itself focuses on an issue never before explored so closely. The topic of Tamil gangs in the UK has often been blanket-approached by the media, leaving most of the population clueless about its substance.
The director has used raw cinematic talent to pull the audience into this world with an attractive plot and storyline. There are twists, a need to focus midst a warmly familiar setting.
The casting, and screenplay has been cleverly structured to make the audience believe in the story. Not in the mood for a brainless Hollywood 'fun-fest'? Watch The Gangs of Tooting Broadway for a refreshing experience in the dark streets of London.
Expect a little, and appreciate a fresh topic.
