Shooting of film on Tamil gangs in South London1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Earlier this month, ‘Tooting Broadway’, an independent film, began a rigorous four-week shooting schedule in the heart of South London.
Written by Tikiri Hulugalle and directed by Devanand Shanmugam, Tooting Broadway will shed new light on the issues around ethnic and community loyalty. The film is an urban crime drama set in 2009, one day before the Sri Lankan Tamil Protests outside The Houses of Parliament.
Set in multi-cultural Tooting Broadway, the locations naturally lend a gritty feel to a fast paced storyline that follows the fortunes of a second generation Sri Lankan Tamil man in his twenties: Arun. A man who has forged a life away from his murky past. He returns to his home turf under the cloud of a 24-hour deadline to stop his younger brother participating in a criminal act that could destroy his life.
Produced by Independent film company, Tooting Broadway Films, the film features a host of new acting talent, committed to making Tooting Broadway the next multi-cultural box office smash.
