    • Synopsis
    • TOOTING BROADWAY is an urban crime drama, whose South London location lends a gritty feel to a fast paced story that highlights a rarely seen gang culture.
      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 participating in a criminal act that could ruin his life. Arun is granted a day by his " mysterious employer, Marcus (Oliver Cotton) to talk Ruthi round. Once back he meets an old flame, Kate (Elizabeth Henstridge) who is struggling with a big decision herself, while Arun’s friendship with gang leader, Karuna (San Shella) threatens to suck him back into a world he left behind. The political tension provides the backdrop for Arun’s need to forge a life away from his past misdeeds versus his obligations to his family, friends and his Tamil roots.
      TOOTING BROADWAY shows a community and unfamiliar subculture; Sri Lankan Tamil Gangs – whose infamy to Scotland Yard is such that they have their own task force dedi- cated to stopping them. Using the themes of family, loyalty and honour TOOTING BROADWAY has a broad appeal to a wide audience. The film features a cast of fresh talent, many Tamils themselves and is Directed by Devanand Shanmugam, Written by Tikiri Hulugalle, Executive Producer Ruby Lovell and Produced by Joshua Clement.
