Paagan – a Tamil movie about a boy and his bicycle

Paagan is a buddy film comedy about a boy, his bicycle, and his numerous get rich quick schemes. Like all South Indian “Kollywood” films, there’s music and dancing girls, too.

Tamil Film -- Paagan Movie Poster

“Paagan” is apparently some kind of Tamil pun for “mahout” — that is, an elephant caretaker. South Asian mahouts bond to their elephants through life from childhood. In the same way, this film shows a boy’s love for his bike as it accompanies him through his many misadventures.

This music video from the film probably shows all of the cool bike scenes. Enjoy.
