The Kerala Police Department often makes headlines not only for catching criminals but also for its witty updates on social media. Through memes based on scenes from iconic movies, they try to raise awareness of different issues, giving citizens a sense of togetherness. This not only makes them more accessible when needed, but also helps break the stereotype that cops can’t be friendly. To prove the same, on July 28, the official Kerala Police Instagram page posted an interesting video of a little boy who is now garnering immense praise and appreciation. In the viral clip, the child can be seen singing a folk song inside a police station as he leaves, everyone passing by, including the cops, enjoying himself.
The video begins with a male cop urging the little boy to sing. Responding to the same, the boy quickly follows the instruction, when a female cop in the background provides him with another chair. The little boy uses the chair to beat the drums while rhythmically synchronizing the lyrics of his song with the sound of applause. Another officer in the background is seen filming the little boy on his mobile device as he enjoys the tune. All nearby passers-by are completely amused as they watch the boy sing fearlessly.
The post’s caption came with an interesting twist. Kerala Police Department has tweaked one of the iconic dialogues from the Malayalam film Praja to send a message of positivity among their followers and citizens across the state. When translated into English, the Malayalam caption reads, “Can Zakir bhai walk into a police station and sing a song? Seen at Palakkad Nattukal Police Station”. Watch the viral video below:
The positive video sparked a thunderous response on social media. While a large number of users praised the Kerala Police Department, many also hailed it as a “beautiful” moment.
A section of the internet was also quick to identify the viral video’s similarity to a scene from the movie titled Action Hero Biju. For those who don’t know, in the film, the character of sub-inspector Biju Poulose blackmails a man inside a police station. The character in the film was played by superstar Nivin Pauly. The viral video has gained over three lakh views on the photo sharing app.
