Where did you watch this movie?

Authentic and audacious, this bold drama follows the life of Rasheed (Lal), an NRI working in the Gulf. He comes to his hometown Kozhikode on a vacation for his daughter's engagement. Rasheed has invested in a commercial property next to his house which he has let out to store owners, except for one room. During his holiday, he meets his friends here and they bond every night over a few peg of drinks. During one of these days, Rashid's friend Nanmarayil Suran (Vinay Forrt), an auto-rickshaw driver, locks him with a prostitute in a garage from the outside to let the two have some fun. When he fails to turn up as promised and the two end up spending two nights and one day together in the garage, Rashid's experience is truly life altering. The rest of the narrative revolves around the embarrassing plight of these two and ensuing twists in the lives of Suran, Thankam and Manoharan.
