The accused, a Chinese is accused of murder. He is given ample opportunity to engage a lawyer but refuses to engage a Chinese or Malay lawyer; he only wants an Indian lawyer to defend him. ‘Cause he truly believes that only Indian lawyers can ‘speak Indian’ – the art of making black look white and vice versa. The key witness, a Malay, spends sleepless nights after finding out that the defense lawyer is an Indian. The witness’s boss even has to console his staff by reassuring him that their lawyer, a Malay, has had lecturers who were Indians and would have taught him the art of “speaking Indian” or so he thought!
The trial is set. The accused, key witness and Indian lawyer come face to face in the courtroom. And true to form, the Grand Master of “speak Indian” does not disappoint. Punctuated with Malaysian humor and the English language at its twisting best!
A production by Serious Comedy Studio, this humorous courtroom turned Indian drama stars Siva Shankar Charles, Tan Ee Kean, Hafez Nasruddin, Vijaymanisegar and Santhira Morgan, himself who is also the Writer/Director
