1985 155’ col Malayalam d I.V. Sasi pc Jeyemje Arts s T. Damodaran lyr Bichu Thirumala m Sathyam lp Mammootty, Mohanlal, Rehman, Mahalakshmi, Lily

Early instance of the fast-paced satires of director Sasi and writer Damodaran, also featuring the combined presence of Malayalam megastars Mammootty and Mohanlal. Babu (Mohanlal), a poor orphan, wins a rigged lottery ticket by accident, and encounters a new world of crime, double-dealing and dishonesty. He eventually realises that he has no use for the money, and prefers to get rid of it and return to his earlier lifestyle. Mammootty plays a political activist in a film liberally peopled with gangsters, crooked lawyers with dubious morals, drug addicts and (Sasi’s regular feature) cabaret dancers.
