Not sure if it's been mentioned earlier, but No Man's Land is one of my favourite car-movies of all time! No prizes for guessing why.

Vanishing Point

The best CAR movie has to be CARS, followed by CARS-2.

Nothing even comes close to the experience, especially with an awesome story line.

Thunderbolt, that is. Nice flick, though the other driver looks more to be a wrestler than a road racer.

Sentimentally funny
Unfortunately no subtitle though. The Tamil speakers in this forum must check it out.

Funny lines.
1. "But i don't know how to drive 'doubles' !!!"
2. "Where is the gear lever?"
"Idiot, why are you looking for it now?, just drive the car."
3. "Ayya, please name my baby."
"err..err car, car.. 'Car'umen, name the baby Carumen, chooper name."
4.When he doesn't tell the break down the car so that his daughter doesn't take it to the city for her use.
5. "ennappa kulirithe???" , "Why son, this is so cold here?" , when he sits in his son's Corolla with the A/C running.
And last the 'race' between the Padmini and the Corolla.
Only if they subtitled the film,would have given 10minutes of laughter for a wide audience.
p.s-Tamil speakers not needed ,just you have to understand the language.
Hi hi, sorry @thalavoy.
Cheers

Some lines are 'sooper funny'. Must watch if you understand tamil.

Agree with you that Tamil Understanders would enjoy this film
Since many of you are fans of this like me, would like to share more info. This movie is now made into a full feature film and is expected to hit the screens this December.

As part of the audio launch function, we were in touch with the crew and they shot a mini documentary featuring classic FIAT owners including myself and fellow bhp'ian JayD.

This video was screened in Sathyam Cinemas during the audio launch on big screen.
