    • 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 home, 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 violent 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 an unfamiliar subculture; Sri Lankan Tamil Gangs – whose infamy to Scotland Yard is such that they have their own task force dedicated to stopping them. Using the themes of family, loyalty and honour TOOTING BROADWAY has a broad appeal to a wide audience.
      Starring San Shella (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) and Oliver Cotton (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, BEOWULF)
