Who wrote the short story that served as the inspiration for this scene from K.Balachandar’s Ninaithale Inikkum?
To QFI’s non-Tamil speaking friends – the narrative itself is very famous and has been filmed at least 3 – 4 times – including Tarantino. Ok, enough clues already..
Here is the link to the short story – you can decide for yourself.
This was first made into classic TV as part of Alfred Hitchcock Presents w/ Steve McQueen and Peter Lorre. Tarantino used it in his contribution to The Four Rooms. And thanks to KB, we have the famous Cigarette flicking Rajnikanth version.
Manish and JK pointed their pinkies in the right direction..
