(Nalan Kumarasamy, 2013)
Presented by Amrutha Kanapulli

Two unemployed young men meet a rather fringe character called Das. Das is essentially a courteous kidnapper. If he had any wealth, he could be called a gentleman kidnapper. And it’s the three trying to pull a high profile kidnapping, but other characters come in to mess it up. All the while, they’re being chased by a mute cop who’s very good at what he does. The movie features several great character actors from the industry and insane music.
