The office drama that is “Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi”

One of our listeners think it would be a good idea for us to talk about the 2006 Chimbu Deven’s historic-fiction “Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi”.

We too think this is a great idea. 23am Pulikesi is one of the best comedies of Tamil cinema in the last 20 years featuring Vadivelu, Nassar, Ilavarasu, Sriman, Thambi Ramaiah, Manobala and many others.

We have Anantha, Ashoka and Rajiv touch upon the film, its comedy, the performances, the homage it pays to its predecessor: Uthama Puthiran, how it could be a modern office-drama masquerading as a period-piece and several other things.

ps: Rajiv has his own crime-fiction podcast on Spotify named “Detective Mathimaran”. You can listen to it here.
