You might wonder whether the life of someone could be so dramatic but it is impossible to ignore the irrefutable mountain of evidence right Infront of us. Let’s not forget how thousands of innocent people were killed during the time this story takes place. During the 1980’s so many people were murdered brutally. And during this time a network of people who thrive in violence was born, working closely with politicians they are not mere thugs, they were a mafia. Even though the law enforcement at that time told people that a mafia does not exist, people are still affected by the corrupt and powerful thugs that work with the politicians. The cruel acts committed by these thugs who are backed by politicians is what influenced the creation of Gini Awi Saha Gini Keli in 1991. The beloved character of Thunmulle Pathme who is a politician in the story is portrayed by Shriyantha mendis. Thunmulle Pathme is a very successful opportunistic politician who challenges the police time and time again. But his Rival Gang leader Mahawaththe Lokaya and a wrestler named Rambo from Narahenpita manages to challenge him. Even though Rambo was a kind and friendly person as a child he was forced in to the smuggling of Heroine by Mahawaththe Lokaya. However, Thunmulle Pathme was always the one who took advantage of the disputes between Rambo and Mahawaththe Lokaya. No one has the right to ruin another person’s life but if you choose to ruin someone’s life you are seen as scum by the society. And all three of them are undoubtedly opportunistic scum. Thunmulle Padme is a illegal smuggler and producer of Moonshine in the Colombo District and he has managed to involve around 200 families to his business, despite being caught by the police over 10 times Thunmulle Pathme always escapes thanks to the political power he wielded.
