Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Dev Patel’s directorial debut in the Ramayana-inspired actioner, Monkey Man.

Monkey Man is now showing in Malaysian cinemas.

Inspired by the legend of Hanuman, an icon embodying strength and courage,  Monkey Man tells the story of Kid, an anonymous young man who ekes out a meager living in an underground fight club where, night after night, wearing a gorilla mask, he is beaten bloody by more popular fighters for cash. After years of suppressed rage, Kid discovers a way to infiltrate the enclave of the city’s sinister elite. As his childhood trauma boils over, his mysteriously scarred hands unleash an explosive campaign of retribution to settle the score with the men who took everything from him.

The movie was written, directed, and produced by Dev Patel, who also played the lead character alongside, Sharlto Copley, Pitobash, Vipin Sharma, Sikandar Kher, Adithi Kalkunte, Sobhita Dhulipala, Ashwini Kalsekar, Makarand Deshpande, Jatin Malik, and Zakir Hussain.
