While there may be views and counterviews whether QUICK GUN MURUGAN thrives on the notion of slang that define an identity, subtly enough it has emerged as the first film that brings into relief the classification of the identities into categories based on the kind of foods that one consumes. It is the Non-vegetarian vs. vegetarian theme that has been subtly used in QUICK GUN MURUGAN as the platform to emphasize that the Indian ideas and beliefs still continue to be defined by the wheat eaters and rice eaters. Ananat Mahadevan would be mightily pleased that he was the first person who brought out this distinction in a comical manner when he made his Television series / serial 'Ghar Jamai' more than 20 years ago.



Interestingly enough, QUICK GUN MURUGAN has one more first to its credit as being the first film in Indian history, where an idea that flourished on television finds being converted into a full-length feature film. It indeed is amazing that though we are nations of such big foodies we have not used it as a subject in serious manner in a story line. Whenever food has been used in the Indian context it is more to generate the idea of comedy which is not a fitting tribute to the importance of food in our real life. Still, QUICK GUN MURUGAN provides an opportunity to rewind and try to bring into relief the films which have used food as a subject in a subtle manner to generate moments of comic relief or otherwise.
