Where did you watch this movie?

Liberally spiced with laughs, this comedy-of-errors follows the trials and triumphs in the life of Sivaraman, who has come to Mumbai in search of Govindan Kutty, who has offered him a visa. But Sivaraman finds Govindan amidst a sea of problems. Due to the desperation caused by dire financial straits, Sivaraman is forced to participate in a bank heist planned by Thomas and his gang, which leaves them homeless and in trouble with the police. In order to safely escape, they find a place in the house of a blind couple, and pretend to be their lost grandson Kunjunni, who had left them a long time ago (when he was 7) and is now coming home. But a turn of events finds Sivaraman and Govindan kutty (combined) as Kunjunni with the body of Govindan kutty and sound of Sivaraman. While this deception fills the life of the blind couple with happiness and contentment, Govindan kutty has further plans to harm and steal from them. Will he go through with his cruel plan or reclaim his conscience and change his ways?
