Those who consider themselves as a CINEPHILE is without a doubt aware of the longstanding issue of bribery which is gaining notoriety in communities and is also perhaps one of the most discussed topics on every social media platform. The platform, whether it’s about a piece of news that brings you great joy or bombards your respective pages with uneventful or tragic events, social media undoubtedly plays a hollistic role as the most prominent platform for opinions, thoughts, debates and breaking news.
With that being said, a netizen took to Twitter to share a scene from a Malayalam flick aptly titled, Kaduva where there was a mention about a Malaysian company which had offered an oil plantation businessman a huge bribe for the importation of palm oil. It probably took a lot of courage by the film makers to mention Malaysia’s role in the bribery process.

Most Malaysians were not surprised by the dialog in the film. In fact many gave their two cents worth on the corruption level in the country which has been a debatable topic of heated interest on social media platforms for years. Many even praised the film makers for being bold enough to mention Malaysia in the flick.
Touted to be based on a true story, Kaduva revolves around Kaduvakunnel Kuriachan (Prithviraj Sukumaran), who owns a plantation, and Inspector General Joseph Chandy (Vivek Oberoi) who is tasked at investigating bribery dealings involved in the plantation business. Besides avenging one another, both had also ended up in a huge conflict.
Will a confession make amends? As usual, an apology will solve the majority of these issues but present alongside a huge price to pay by the guilty. However, as much as we hope for things to get better, it becomes even worse and if you’re curious about its thrilling ending, you’ll need to be glued to your screen and watch the film which premiers on Amazon Prime Video.
