OQ #55

Questions courtesy Sourabh Banthia.

1.On 4 May 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver, then the managing director of the X, went on a shooting party in the North Slob, by the River Slaney in County Wexford, Ireland. He became involved in an argument over which was the fastest game bird in Europe, the koshin golden plover or the grouse. That evening at Castlebridge House he realised that it was impossible to confirm whether or not the golden plover was Europe's fastest game bird. This led to the formation of X, and the rest is history.

2. Which movie's plot is this? And what is its claim to fame?

The film revolves around Nandhan (X), a Lankan youth who kidnaps Meera Jasmine, a Minister's daughter and a television journalist.
The Minister (Suman) is helped by the Director General of Police (Rajeev) and his subordinate (Bose Venkat) to rescue Meera. Things take a turn when they get an interesting demand from Nandhan seeking the release of a Lankan national detained by police. Why and for what the demand is forms the crux.
