Quick Gun Murugan: Mind it!


Be warned. “Quick Gun Murugan” is unlike any other Hindi film you have seen in a long time. 

What there is though is plenty of laugh-out-loud humour and an affectionate look at our favourite movie clichés — all of which are being mouthed by a middle-aged, pot-bellied hero.

Directed by Shashank Ghosh, the film is a sort of an extension of the promotional ads made for a music channel many years, ago, starring the Murugan character. 

This time Murugan is played by Telugu actor Rajendra Prasad and instead of a 30-second ad, he is the subject of a 90-minute film where he is fighting the villain, inventively called Rice Plate Reddy.
