Where did you watch this movie?

Set against the stunning backdrop of pristine islands, this offbeat thriller follows the adventures in the life of Alex (Asif Ali), a 30-year-old scion of a large and rich Christian family, whose male members take pride in flaunting their virility. Alex is the fourteenth child (with a nephew who is 10 years older). Abandoned at a very young age, he has led a wayward life, overdosing on liquor, women and drugs. This ultimately lands him in prison. His nephew, who is 10 years older, is in charge of the prison. This makes things a little easier for Alex. Yet, he is convinced that he cannot survive in such a place for a year. He starts making plans to escape. He fails many times before ending up in the drainage pipe and prays out of desperation. A saviour appears before him in the form of Akbar (Sunny Wayne), who is from Lakshadweep, and circumstances make Alex follow him to the beautiful islands. The significance of the title now reveals itself. 'Kuthirameenukal' or swordfish are known for their selfish nature and Akbar seems to be the representative of that in human form. Will Alex learn to amend his selfish ways?
