     13In this unlikely subject for a comedy, 
     14Krishnamurthy (Mohanlal), a poor but brainy 
     15Brahmin, is sent with an assistant (Innocent) to 
     16work as a site officer for the Calcutta 
     17Construction Company in a particularly grim 
     18place known as Vietnam Colony. This place, 
     19set in Kerala, is under the control of gangs and 
     20slumlords who protect a small bunch of illegal 
     21squatters on the company’s land. The task of 
     22the two employees is to persuade the squatters 
     23to vacate the land so that the company can 
     24build on it. However, Krishnamurthy switches 
     25sides and helps the poor people assert their 
     26rights in the face of both the company and the 
     27gangs. The use of innovative dialogue (a 
     28Siddique-Lal trademark) and bizarre situations, 
     29the displacement of stereotypes (eg. the 
     30Muslim gangster and the dispossessed Muslim 
     31Seth) and the performances of Mohanlal, 
     32Innocent and Kanaka helped the film to 
     33achieve its popularity.
