Popular Tamil actor-comedian Yogi Babu's latest film Gurkha has released in theatres on Friday and is eliciting a positive response from the film-going community. Written and directed by Sam Anton, the film has Anandraj, Livingston, Raj Bharath and others in supporting roles.
Reportedly, Gurkha is a remake of popular Hollywood comedy flick Paul Blart: Mall Cop, featuring Kevin James, with some elements of Bruce Willis' Die Hard series. One of the posters of Gurkha, featuring Yogi Babu, shows him dressed as a security guard, as he descends down a moving elevator, with a stick in his hand. Yogi fits the character of a security man perfectly, as he looks to inspire humour with his charming and comic ways.
As per pinkvilla.com, the film is all about a serious robbery that takes place even as a US consul member is kidnapped. How a lazy Gurkha and equally lazy dog save the day is the crux of the story.

During an interview, Anton had revealed that Yogi Babu didn’t want to play the lead in Gurkha. He also added, "We share a great bond and that’s why I approached him immediately after getting the idea for Gurkha."
Yogi Babu was last seen in Tamil film Dharmaprabhu, in which he played the role of Lord Yama.
