Nelson and ‘Breaking Bad’ – F’day Spl. Article by Naveen

With ‘Jailer’, released yesterday, fans now notice that the film’s lead character is inspired by the character of Mike Ehermantraut from ‘Breaking Bad’.
This is not the first time that director Nelson Dhilipkumar has proved that he is a die-hard ‘Breaking Bad’ fan. Let us see some of the references of the web series in Nelson’s movies.
‘Kolamaavu Kokila’ starred Nayanthara in the lead role, and the cast of the movie included Yogi Babu, Saranya Ponvannan, Redin Kingsley, and Rajendran, among others.
The movie was released in 2018. Like ‘Breaking Bad’, ‘Kolamaavu Kokila’ is also about how the lead character embraces the dark side.
‘Breaking Bad’ is about the gradual transformation of a high school chemistry teacher into a most formidable drug lord, Heisenberg, after he gets diagnosed with cancer.
The story of Nelson’s ‘Doctor’ might not be from ‘Breaking Bad’, but there were a lot of characters in the film that felt ‘inspired’ from the series.
At one instant, Sivakarthikeyan’s character Dr Varun comes across as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad.
He pretends to be a human trafficker with an ice cream parlour as the front to cover the illegal trade.
In ‘Breaking Bad’, Gus Fring runs a drug mafia with a chain fast food restaurant named Los Pollos Hermanos as his cover.
Apart from this, ‘Doctor’ also featured twins, who were inspired by Breaking Bad’s dreaded cousins Marco and Leonel Salamanca.
Not just in movies, Nelson has proved that he is big ‘Breaking Bad’ fan even during the promo of the Kaavala song from ‘Jailer’.
In the promo, Nelson can be seen wearing the ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ t-shirt.
