Kuk Doo Koo (Cock-a-doodle-doo)

Director: Parvati Menon
Hindi / 1985/Colour/107mins (Also available in: Kannada)

Synopsis:

When a village boy goes to the market to buy a rooster he is cheated by the shopkeeper who hands him a puppy instead. Later when all pleas to correct this cheating fall on deaf ears, the boy and his grand mother decide to expose the swindler on their own, not realizing that he is an experienced hand. Expectedly, their plans misfire. A confused constable adds to their problem. But unwilling to give up, the two gather their wits to catch the cheat. In a funny, delightful way the film tells us that everyone, even kids and old ones, should fight injustice even when the odds are heavily stacked against them.
