London, the first Tamil production of the London-based Spice Team Entertainment, is shot-by-shot remake of Kaakkakuyil, a Mohanlal-Priyadarshan film.

Sivaraman (Prashanth) is an unemployed young man with a lot of problems at home. He reaches London with Rs 200,000 and an offer letter for a job. His misadventure starts with his bag going missing the day he lands in London. He meets Kathir (Pandiarajan) and there are a series of confrontations between them.

For those who have seen the original, the remake is a bit of a let down. Prashanth and Pandiarajan are unable to match the comic timing of Mohanlal and Mukesh. And yet London provides unadulterated laughter.
